If you are looking for relaxing, fun and educational holidays, in a stunning country side setting, the Chateau de Varennes offers specially designed week-long luxury holiday retreats for families with children of all ages. These individually tailored packages offer an array of fun activities that everyone can enjoy and participate in all week long.
The Chateau de Varennes is located in South Burgundy, in the middle of a 100 acres property of fields and woods and near the famous vineyards of Beaune. Owned by the same family for 400 years, it was fully remodeled recently with the highest standards of comfort and décor. The Chateau has a large outdoor pool, a kids playground and a new tennis court.
You can opt to just sit back and enjoy the full board meals by Michelin star trained staff; participate in some of the exciting activities including such as clay pigeaon shooting,, bike-riding, horse back riding, tennis, kayaking/swimming in the river and visiting local farms and vineyards; or partake in bespoke workshops and classes coached by the best experts in their fields (Tips for City Gardening, Healthy and Tasty Cooking lessons, Unwiding through Yoga and Meditation, the Magic of Floral Design, Acquiring a Photographer’s Eye, Surviving in the Wild, Building tree-houses).
There is a strong environmental focus at the Chateau de Varenne and all our classes include helpful and easy tips on how to transition to zero waste (and incur such big savings that you may recoup the cost of your vacation!).
Baby sitters are available for younger children so you can attend the classes or simply lounge by the pool.
