Leisure activities

piscine chateau lans

The swimming pool

Spend hot afternoons lounging by the pool on one of the sun loungers. The garden table and chairs provide the perfect setting for lunch by the pool or dining outside on balmy summer evenings.

The 6x12m pool is heated and treated with salt. It is open from April 1st to October (exact dates depend on the weather). An automatic cover ensures the safety of young children and helps maintain the water temperature when the pool is not in use. The shallow end is 1 meter deep, gradually deepening to around 1.90 meters.

Our maintenance staff will call by several times during your stay to ensure the upkeep of the pool and the terrace.

(*The swimming pool heating system is an aerothermal heat pump, the most commonly used method for heating an outdoor pool. The pump extracts heat from the air to warm the pool water circulating through it. Consequently, we cannot guarantee that the pool will be warm enough if the air temperature falls below 12 degrees Celsius.)

Wellness house

The Château outbuilding was restored at the end of 2013 in a "Nature & Zen" style and features a sports and body building room, as well as a wellness area.

The Château's Rich History

The Château is essentially a square manor house, but with its two towers at the front, it earns the title of a château. Typical of the mid-19th century style, the château's history actually extends much further back. Over the centuries, it has undergone numerous alterations and was even partially destroyed at one point, followed by an almost complete reconstruction in the 19th century.

During our renovation work, we discovered evidence of habitation since the Middle Ages. The most intact remnant from this period is a vast building with impressive beams, reminiscent of the grain store at Cluny.

In the 12th century, Cluny owned the St Marcel Priory and numerous other properties in the surrounding area. These properties are marked on a 1649 map under the name ‘la Tarte,’ a deformation of ‘tertre,’ meaning a rise in the land (185m above sea level). This is the only elevated area in the Lans region.

It is believed that the property was originally designed with defense in mind, during a time when bandits were common, and security was crucial. The château has been transformed numerous times and has seen many families come and go.

Ancient archives reveal that the château belonged to the Marquise of Thésut from 1582 to 1765. It then passed to the Denon family, whose descendant, Dominique-Vivant Denon (1747-1825), was a renowned Egyptologist and director of the Museums of France. Although he held the title of ‘Lord of Lans,’ Denon, a great traveler, never stayed at the Château de Lans. He participated in the Egypt Campaign and fought in the battles of Austerlitz, Essling, and Eylau, where he lost an arm. Upon his death in 1868, one of his daughters, the Countess of Duranti, rebuilt the château as it stands today. Her son later donated the château to a prominent figure in Châlon-sur-Saône society upon his death in 1886.

His descendants eventually sold the property to Kasteliades in January 2008.
