In southern Burgundy near Mâcon and Cluny is a vineyard Burgundy B&B at Chateau de Pierreclos in Pierreclos (71 Saône et Loire, BFC).
Located just a 20-minute drive from Mâcon, the Château de Pierreclos is surrounded by vineyards. The Chateau is a masterpiece of medieval architecture, brimming with 9 centuries of history.
Since 1989, the castle has been owned by the Pidault family. It is one of the most beautiful private historic buildings in Burgundy. Here Anne-Françoise and Jean-Marie Pidault welcome you to their five bed and breakfast rooms. The Chateau offers views overlooking the terraced gardens and the vineyards and free wine tasting sessions. Just a 15-minute drive away is the Solutré Rock,a limestone escarpment 5 miles/8 km west of Mâcon overlooking the commune of Solutré-Pouilly. Each of the ensuite rooms is decorated in a modern style.
The Chateau produces the fine wines of southern Burgundy – which includes Bourgogne (red), Macon Pierreclos, Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint Veran whites – reds based on Pinot Noir, whites on Chardonnay. They also produce a sparkling Crémant de Bourgogne. Your hosts can offer a visit to the wine cellar and tutored wine tastings. This area lies between Burgundy and Beaujolais and the wines can often be great value for money.
The Château de Pierreclos is a private historic monument located between the Abbey of Cluny and the emblematic national site at Solutré. Set among the vineyards on a rocky spur, a chapel was first built there that became a parish church in 996. The château appears in texts from 1282 when the lord promised his château to the Duke of Burgundy. It is a strong-hold that has gone through wars, the French revolution and was transformed over time into an ornamental château. Tastefully renovated to receive guests, its owners will be proud to have you taste their wines and many culinary delights from the region. www.bienvenueauchateau.com
