Chez Scallan – Jura/Burgundy B&B

John & Carolyn Scallan offer a comfortable Burgundy B&B at Sens-sur-Seille (71 Saone-et-Loire, BFC) at B&B Chez Scallan either for stop-overs en route south or for short or longer stays to explore the vineyards of Burgundy and Jura e.g. Chateau Chalon is just 30km/18 miles away.

Chez Scallan B&B

The house, built in 1880 has the typical ‘hipped’ roof of the region, a large shady courtyard and gardens, and is situated on the edge of the village of Sens-sur-Seille.

This would be an opportunity to explore some of the lesser known parts of Burgundy and Jura with the additional bonus of experienced advice from your English hosts who can help you plan your itinerary to get the best from your day – and recommend vineyards and restaurants. The B&B offers 3 individually decorated bedrooms with en-suite facilities, Garden, terrace and free wifi! Very welcoming British hosts with a wealth of local wine knowledge! Just 90 minutes from Geneva or Lyon airports this area abounds with small villages, individual cuisine and lots and lots of really fine wines.

Just because the Jura vineyards stretch over “only” 80 km (50 miles), it doesn’t mean they are less rich and varied. From Champagne-sur-Loue to Saint-Amour, nestled against the Jura Mountains, this region brings seven Appellations of Controlled Origin (AOC) together, ensuring the authenticity of its wines: Arbois, the oldest but also the most extensive; Côtes du Jura, which is found from north to south; L’Etoile, featuring the Chardonnay grape variety; and Château-Chalon, which produces Vin Jaune (Golden Wine). To these geographical AOCs, four Protected Appellations of Origin (AOP) can be added: Macvin du Jura (liqueur), Crémant du Jura (sparkling wine) and Marc du Jura (distilled brandy). There are five grape varieties in the Jura: Chardonnay, Savagnin, Poulsard, Trousseau and Pinot Noir.[]

“We’re biased. We live in a small village in the extreme east of Burgundy, right on the border with the Jura Department and we love it here” say John & Carolyn Scallan at their B&B who offer excellent accommodation in the heart of south Burgundy at Sens-sur-Seille (71 Saone-et-Loire, BFC) east of Chalon-sur-Saone (40 km/25 miles)
