Worth a detour

Recommended Posts

If you are in the Chalon sur Saone area then can recommend a visit to the Chateau de Germolles. Privately owned, it was built in the 14th century for Philip the Bold and Margaret of Flanders. The guided visit is really interesting as they have archives dating back to when the chateau was built and know the names of people from the caretaker to the artist who hand painted the walls.

We were lucky enough to be shown around by the owner and his enthusiasm was infectious.

Well worth a visit in our opinion
