Trip Planner: Europe / France / Bourgogne-Franche-Comte / Saone-et-Loire / Mellecey / Chateau De Germolles
Château de Germolles is situated in Burgundy, not far from Beaune and Chalon-sur-Saône. It is the best preserved residence of the Dukes of Burgundy. Built during the second part of the 14th century, this château is important for the history of the region. Furthermore, it is a rare example of such a well-preserved residence in France in the 14th and the beginning of the 15th centuries, when most of the princely palaces of that period have almost entirely disappeared. This exceptional site evokes court life in France on the eve of the Renaissance.Add Chateau De Germolles and other attractions to your Mellecey trip itinerary using our Mellecey visit planner.
It has been listed as a Historic monument since 1989. The chateau is privately owned, but can be visited, by guided tour, most of the year round.
