Outdoor Activities

 Hôtel Golf Château de Chailly is ideally placed for many outdoor activities including swimming in lakes, walking and bike riding.

Swimming in lakes

There are a few lakes in the area where visitors can swim or simply soak up the sun during the summer. The two lakes that we recommend are “Lac de Chamboux” (about a 25 minute drive from Château de Chailly) and “Lac des Settons" (about a 50 minute drive from Château de Chailly). Both are in the Morvan National Park.

Bike Riding

Château de Chailly is a good starting point for a bike ride as there are many pretty little hamlets and small rural villages in the area. The setting is very picturesque and the small roads are ideal as there is not much traffic. We can suggest some routes given the length of your desired bike ride. For a more leisurely bike ride, we recommend riding on the Burgundy canal (either starting from Pouilly-en-Auxois, which is about 20 minute bike ride from Château de Chailly, or starting from Vandenesse-en-Auxois, which is about a 45 minute bike ride from Château de Chailly).

We rent bicycles for 10€ per day at Hôtel Golf Château de Chailly.

For visitors who are more interested in a organised bike tour, we recommend Escapade Gourmandes (http://www.escapadegourmande.fr).


Burgundy is beautiful for walking. For visitors who would like to go for walks from Château de Chailly, we recommend walking to “Réservoir de Cercey” (which is about 45 minutes away on foot). For visitors who want to walk on the Burgundy Canal, recommend driving to Vandenesse-en-Auxois, about a 15 minute drive from Château de Chailly, where visitors can park their car and walk along the Burgundy canal and enjoys the views including views of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois.

Hot Air Ballooning

The best way to experience Burgundy is from the air in a hot air balloon! Visitors can organise the flight directly from Château de Chailly.
