General

  • Quiet site 20 minutes' walk from the little town of Santenay
  • Well placed for walking or cycling to the Burgundy vineyards
  • Access to municipal swimming pool next to the site

What splendid times await the casual cyclist and the avid wine-sipper around the Burgundy area – no lycra-clad days puffing up and down slopes around here, just meandering gently down quiet country lanes as you flit between vineyards to sample, purchase and generally take in the gorgeous greenery that comes with the territory.

If your little ears have perked up at the very idea, you’d do well to consider a stay at Camping des Sources, just outside the little town of Santenay and handily placed for pedalling off to the many, many wineries that pepper the area. Less confident (or energetic) cyclists can pick from one of the 15 or so wineries that are within 10 minutes’ bike ride, while those looking to work up a thirst can head up to Beaune with a ride of an hour or so for a well-earned tipple or two.

And if you’re accompanied by kids too young to appreciate such wine-based wanderings? Fret not, for more attractions are on hand – châteaux galore, plus canoeing, amusement parks and simply sauntering around the scenic lanes (who knows, you may just happen upon a winery as you go – and it would be rude not to pop in, of course).

When your legs declare it to be time for a rest, retreat to your peaceful pitch to snooze in a sunny patch or shaded spot while the nippers nip off for games of badminton, volleyball or table tennis, or a bit of playground clambering. After your restorative doze maybe you’ll have summoned enough energy to bring the old arms into action by gathering la famille for a round of miniature golf or pétanque (top tip: balance out your bowling arm by clasping a glass of red in the other).

Great wine deserves great food, of course, and it’s really rather easy to eat very well indeed around these parts. It’s a 20-minute trot into town for restaurants serving up local faves such as coq au vin, escargots and steaming plates of boeuf bourguignon, or to scour the shops for bits and pieces to inspire your own creations (keep an eye out for local cheeses, sausages, wild mushrooms and venison depending on the season). There’s no need to go far for your simple snackage though – plenty of everyday essentials, including fresh bread and pastries to fuel your day’s activity, can acquired at the site’s grocery store.

Please note

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

    The size of the pitch and the laid back atmosphere

    I was refused access to the municipal swimming pool next door, because I only had swim shorts. Speedos only, be aware to avoid disappointment t!It is not part of the site, but one of the things which drew us to it.

Excellent site with clean facilities and friendly staff 24/07/2017

  • Liked: 

    Good location with helpful staff who spoke English. Excellent area for cycling along the canal and other cycle paths. Relatively level sites. Excellent sanitary facilities.

    Disliked: 

    It had been advertised that wifi was free and covered most of the site. That was one of the reasons for choosing this site. It turns out that Pitchup was wrong and that there was no free wifi at all and the wifi that was available with boosters around the site was about 20 euros for 3 days which is rediculous. Give the manager his due he did agree that it was very expensive and pointed me to the local bar which offered free wifi with a beer. The manager spoke to Pitchup whilst we were there and they have now amended the details.

  • Avenue des Sources Santenay, Côte-d'Or, France, 21590

Directions


From the A6 take exit 24 and follow directions for Beaune centre. In Beaune take the N74 signposted Chalon-sur-Saône. Turn onto the D974 and continue towards Le Creusot. When you reach Santenay follow the signs for our campsite.

Local attractions

One could happily spend days (weeks, even, if one were truly dedicated) pottering around the various wine establishments nearby – if your radius stretches to an hour’s bike ride you may well find your mind boggled with choice before you’ve even touched a drop. If you like to have a little order to your plans, perhaps set out on one of the prescribed routes in the area, such as the Route des Grands Crus (which takes in several of the area’s finest cellars) or the Eurovelo 6 long-distance trail, which skirts the Canal du Centre as it passes through Santenay.

Warm days may require the cooling presence of a bit of water – dive in to the municipal pool that’s next to the site or stick to the surface with kayaking, paddleboarding, windsurfing and the like from the watersports centre up in Autun (40 minutes away). Landlubbing leisure-seekers may instead prefer a round of golf at the course just under a half-hour drive away or a spot of fishing at Etang de Torcy, 40 minutes away.

Even if you’re not taking in the wine producers it’d be wrong to leave the area without visiting at least one of the area's châteaux – gawp at the pretty patterns on the tiled roof of Château de Santenay, make the 15-minute drive to the turreted Château de la Rochepot, or take the tour at Château des Couches (also 15 minutes away) to poke around in the underground tunnels and dungeons.

Any kids in danger of going cross-eyed at all this history can be safely restored to (relative) sanity with the various rides and a trip on the little tourist train at Parc des Combes or by flinging themselves through the treetops on the forest adventure trails at Acrogivry, both of which are around half an hour’s drive from the site.
