Overview

Wedding Venue Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome

In a beautiful and natural setting, surrounded by four acres of glorious grounds, Château De Fremont is a charming château ideal for family holidays, a reunion with friends or a romantic wedding in an ideal location in rural Burgundy.

The château has a fascinating history; it was built in 1900 for a famous French actress by her lover, giving it a true air of romance. In World War II the château was sold to the Red Cross and it was used as a war hospital for French and British soldiers. In more recent times it has become a delightful and comfortable holiday home as well as an ideal setting for special celebrations. 

The vast four-acre estate is wonderful for walks through the gardens and forest, angling in the fishing pond, playing some of the giant garden games or tennis with the kids or simply relaxing by the private swimming pool followed by a barbecue.

Inside, the interiors have been thoughtfully renovated with ample space on the ground floor to chat with friends in the living rooms, watch movies in the home cinema room or prepare meals in the semi-professional kitchen to serve by candlelight in the delightful Orangerie. Twelve bedrooms across the first and second floor offer room for up to 32 guests, including some quad rooms perfect for a gathering of extended family.

Furthermore, the recently renovated Coach House, available alongside the château, offers three pretty en suite bedrooms with balconies overlooking the countryside as well as two apartments, sleeping up to 22 guests in total. With its own private garden and terrace, it’s a great option for wedding parties or larger groups looking for extra space.

The hospitable yet discreet owners live on the grounds and can arrange a daily continental breakfast or simply deliver croissants and fresh bread to your kitchen every day. They have an extensive wine list that guests can buy from and wine-tastings can take place in the château or in local wineries across one of the world’s most famous wine regions.

Indeed, you are close to the vineyards of the Côte de Beaune and Côte d’Or where incredible wines can be sampled and landscapes of vineyards can be admired. Beaune, the wine capital of Burgundy, is just forty minutes away, as is the famous Route des Grands Crus, which will not only appeal to wine lovers but also those who appreciate fine cuisine with many Michelin starred establishments across the Beaune region.

Closer to home, the Roman town of Autun has a wonderful weekly market as well as many historical treasures to discover. Meanwhile, nature lovers will adore the Parc Naturel Régional du Morvan, a protected nature park where you can pursue all sorts of outdoor activities in an outstanding setting.

Château De Fremont is part of a small commune with just the château and two farmhouses. A small village is around 3km away whilst a village with a restaurant, grocery shop, boulangerie and butchers is just 8km away in Épinac.

The château is an excellent starting point for exploring the local area and taking part in a wide variety of activities. It is located south-east of the Morvan Natural Park between Autun and Beaune. 

Beaune (38km), Autun (20km), Nolay (13km), Chalon-sur-Saône (40km), Dijon (80km), and Château-Chinon (60km) are nearby and provide many kinds of touristic and cultural opportunities: museums, festivals and exhibitions. The area also includes numerous châteaux and other historical sites, including world famous vineyards and wine cellars where you can taste and buy excellent Burgundy wines by the bottle or ‘en vrac’. The château has all the information needed to plan your trips. 

There are also excellent walks available around the château, with many trips starting there. They range from 4km upwards depending on how strenuous you want the walk to be, but all of them will provide stunning views and sights. The Morvan Natural Park is the perfect place for walking and would be ideal for you to bring a picnic. There are also some great outdoor activities across this region. 

The nearest golf course is in Autun, an excellent 9 hole course which is 20 km from the château and 18 hole courses can be found in Beaune at 40km, Chalon at 40km and Dijon. Angling is also very popular in this area and the château can obtain a permit for you should you wish to do this. 

There is plenty for children and families to do in and around Burgundy including visiting a zoo, an adventure park, going go-karting or making pottery. There are also excellent restaurants suitable for families. Children also enjoy spending time at the château and making the most of the swimming pool, the tennis courts, the play area and the many ball games that they can play on the lawns.

Event information

There is already an air of romance around Château De Fremont; after all when it was first built at the beginning of the 20th century it was a lover’s gift to a famous French actress.

Over one hundred years later you can create a fairy-tale wedding at this charming and private château where you can gather with family and friends to celebrate your special day. The glorious gardens and terraces provide a stunning backdrop to your ceremony followed by a drinks reception in this natural and beautiful setting, enjoying fine wines from this Burgundy region and the nearby Côte de Beaune  vineyards. Intimate wedding breakfasts can be hosted by candlelight in the Orangerie whilst more lavish summer affairs require a marquee where guests can wine and dine in wonderful surroundings. 

Wedding Reception
A cocktail reception can take place in the grounds or on one of the two terraces. For intimate affairs, up to 42 guests can dine in the Orangerie inside the château but an even better option is in The Coach House reception room for up to 52 guests. For larger events, marquee hire (8x15m) is required for up to 120 guests, which includes wooden floors, tables, chairs and all tablewear.

Wedding Ceremony
Up to 120 guests can attend a ceremony in the beautiful grounds of Château De Fremont. There are various options across the estate, no matter which style you are hoping for from shabby chic and rustic to traditional or modern. A berber tent can be hired in case of rain.

Where to Stay
Up to 54 people can stay at the Château and Coach House. There are many other hotels and places to stay within a 20-minute drive and the owners are happy to provide details. 

Catering
The owners have contacts with carefully selected chefs and caterers in the region. Various types of catering options can be offered from fine dining to relaxed barbecues and buffets. The owners will provide you with a list of wines, champagnes and the local Crémant de Bourgogne that they can organise for your wedding.

A brunch can also be provided for you and your guests the day after the wedding.

Other Information
The owners also have contacts for photographers, DJs, make-up artists and florists.  However, if you wish to bring your own professionals and/or caterers to the wedding, the owners do not impose any restrictions.

Reviews

  • Nice big property!

    Created on 29/07/2018

    A large family party of 24 spent 10 days in July at Chateau de Fremont. We have spent several intergenerational family holidays together in France and Italy and so are used to the sort of properties available for large parties. An honest review follows:
    - The location is fabulous, with beautiful grounds, a tennis court and lovely swimming pool, which was much appreciated as it was unusually hot there.
    - The caretaker/manager lives at the restaurant/ chambres d'hotes on site and she was really helpful. We ate at the restaurant on two occasions and the food was delicious. They even catered for our vegan member, I would recommend eating there.
    - The bedrooms were fine, the beds were comfortable.
    - The kitchen was a great communal space, with a huge dining table.
    - There were two downstairs sitting rooms and another smaller dining area, these were great to escape to, when you needed some peace and quiet. The tv with satellite channels was useful.
    - There are plenty of tables and chairs outside and a couple of small BBQ's for your use, it is a pretty place to sit and eat.
    It was a great holiday and there aren't many properties of this size and price to rent.

  • Three days of laughter and smiles

    Posted by Gilbert J. on 31/10/2016

    My booking with Oliver's Travels was for a weekend at the Château de Frémont in Burgundy. I discovered the place on their website and it seemed a divine intervention when I discovered that the only weekend free of bookings coincided with my 80th birthday. Without further fuss I was able to invite the fifty of so persons in the three branches of my family spread through France and England to come together for the first time in 23 years. Three days of laughter and smiles. Not a tear, not a grump !

  • We had a great stay at Chateau de Fremont

    Posted by Katherine D. on 08/09/2016

    I booked Chateau de Fremont with you and stayed there at the beginning of August this year (6 - 13th). The gathering was for my father in laws 70th and the whole family (24 of us) got together and had a great time.
    Chateau de Fremont was great because of the facilities also and would like our next holiday home to have similar to entertain energetic children and adults! Swimming pool, golf, tennis, fishing - close to small town, markets - not too far from airport. Thanks so much!

  • Wonderful environment

    Posted by Wim and An on 16/04/2014

    Un marriage, mais pas comme les autres...

    We wanted to have special wedding with the theme 'A room with a few'! A special 3-day festive program with 40 of our closest friends and family
    in a wonderful environment in one of the niciest areas of France... and that's what we've got in Chateau!

  • Successful and memorable holiday

    Posted by Patrick Cooper on 07/12/2011

    Firstly, to let you know we had an excellent week at the Chateau; the weather was pretty good and the proprietor, catering and caretaker's teams all really kind and helpful. The catering service was just right and was used most nights by some 18-20 people. Everyone had a good time and full use was made of the tennis court and swimming pool. We would recommend it to others. Thank you Oliver and the Chateau personnel for all the help in arranging this successful and memorable holiday.
