A day's cruise on the Burgundy Canal aboard our Hotel Barges
After a hearty breakfast at the Château la Chassagne, you will be
taken to the waiting barge. The captain will welcome you on board
with a Kir Royal and introduce you to the other passengers.

After a tour of inspection, settle down comfortably on the deck and
rediscover the slow, leisurely tempo of yesteryear in the course of
an unforgettable cruise amidst the glorious landscapes and heady
fragrances of Burgundy.

What could be more tempting to a gourmet's palate than the prospect
of mouth-watering regional dishes enticingly concocted by our chef.
And, of course, it is only fitting that the distinguished selection
of wines should hail from the cellars of La Reine Pedauque and from
the fabled vineyards of the Côte de Beaune.

The afternoon speeds by all too quickly but there's still time to
make acquaintance with the other guests in the convivial atmosphere
of the bar.

Towards 5 pm your journey comes to an end and the hotel-barge makes
fast for the night. Our chauffeur will drive you back to the chateau.

Total excursion time: 8 to 9 hours.

Price for 2 persons € 320 / 3 Persons € 350 / 4 Persons € 380.

Up, up and away in a beautiful Balloon!
Welcome to the magical world of hot-air balloons soaring high in the
skies above Château la Chassagne. Let the wind be your guide as you
look down on landscapes dear to the poet Lamartine who once lived in
the Château de Montculot overlooking the Ouche Valley. After
touchdown at a place of the wind's choosing, it's time for a
celebratory glass of champagne. The departures take place early in
the morning or late in the afternoon. The entire journey lasts about
3 hours including 1 hour actual flying time.

Price per person: € 220

Club Crémant de la Confrérie du Château - Become an exclusive member!
In the far-off days of the Dukes of Burgundy, it was already the
custom to slice open bottles of Crémant de Bourgogne with a sword.
This tradition survives today and is suitably honoured by
the "Crémant Club of the Château la Chassagne Confraternity". The
master of ceremonies will show you how to slash open a champagne
bottle. From the moment you have slashed open your own bottle, you
belong to the Confrérie du Château la Chassagne. Experience teaches
us that, depending on the skill of the new member, there will be
enough wine left in the bottle for between 4 and 6 toasts to be drunk
in tribute to this feat. Crémant will be served with canapés.

At the end of the ceremony, you will receive a certificate of
membership detailing your special rights concerning Château la
Chassagne. You will be offered the neck of the bottle you have so
dexterously sliced open, handsomely presented in a gift-box.

Make sure you bring your camera along to capture this moment for
posterity !

Enthronement ceremony: € 50
