Castel Camping Château de l’Epervière is a popular high quality site, peacefully situated in the wooded grounds of a 16th-century château, close to the A6 and near the village of Gigny-sur-Saône. It is within walking distance of the river where you can watch the cruise boats on their way to and from Châlon-sur-Saône. There are 160 pitches arranged over two areas separated by a small fishing lake. All have 10A electricity, some are on hardstanding and 96 are fully serviced. Close to the château and fishing lake, the pitches are hedged and have shade from mature trees; whilst the area behind the lake has a more open aspect.
Red squirrels, ducks, the occasional heron and even a coypu can be found on the campsite and the pitches around the periphery are good for birdwatchers. The château’s main restaurant serves regional dishes and there is a good range of takeaway meals. Gert-Jan and his team enthusiastically organise many activities, mainly for younger children, but including wine tasting in the cellars of the château from mid May to mid September. Here you are in the Maconnais and Châlonnaise wine regions, so don't miss the opportunity to arrange some visits to the local caves to sample their wines.Only 500 yards away is the river Saône which has a brand new cycle path running along to go for a pleasant relaxing cycle ride.
