Golf Club Details

There are a number of different types and styles of golf course, all within an hour of Sens sur Seille. Here are just a few:

There is a private 9 hole approach course, situated just 15kms from us at Chapelle Voland (tel: 03 84 44 10 57). You can hire equipment on site. The course is open all year round.

For something more challenging, situated just outside Lons le Saunier (about a 30 minute drive) is a par 72 championship course at the Domaine du Val de Sorne Golf Hotel (tel: 03 84 43 04 80). Green fees here range from 29 euros to 47 euros, depending on the time of the year and the day of the week.

Just outside Chalon sur Saone is the Parc de Loisirs Saint-Nicolas which has a very good municipal course which is an 18 hole par 71 course. For more information try their website on www.golf-chalon-sur-saone.com.


Fishing

There is a wide variety of fishing available in the area. You can catch Pike, Black Bass, Perch, Carp and the famous Silurid on the rivers Seille, Doubs and the Saone. There are also a large number of well stocked private ponds that offer day and night fishing.


Swimming

There is a swimming pool that is open from 2pm each day during the summer at Saint Germain du Bois, which is approximately 10 minutes from Sens sur Seille.


Horse Riding

Situated at Bosjean, just 3 miles from us, is the Centre Hippique de La Cheneraie, a major equitation centre run by the Vincent family. It hosts competitions and events throughout the whole year. You can enrole for courses or lessons, or we can arrange for an early morning/evening hack.


Cycling

The Bresse countryside is gently rolling and is well suited to those who enjoy a gentle, not too taxing promenade en bicyclette. For those with a little or a lot more energy, the Jura mountains are a relatively short drive away, and offer a whole range of mountain bike type activities.

In the westerly direction lies the award winning "Voie Verte" or Green Way. This is a series of routes for cycling, walking, horse riding or even roller blading, that runs across Saone et Loire. These routes are generally easy riding but can cover long distances, and either follow the Saone river or wander through the vineyards. The Voie Verte is completely traffic free, but there are a good number of carparks with information and usually toilets, where you can leave the car and join the route.

If you don't want to bring your own bikes with you, we have a selection of bikes available for guests' use, suitable for around age 11 upwards to adult. Or, there is a bicycle hire scheme at Louhans, based at the Tourist Office, and their prices start from 9 euros for half a day.

We also have a bike rack for the car, which you may borrow!


Wine Tours

We can offer advice , contacts and suggest a variety of different wine tours in the Jura, Burgundy and Beaujolais wine regions, all of which are within very easy reach of us here. We will offer suggestions of routes and places to visit based on your own interests, tastes and language abilities (some, but by no means all, of the winemakers we know do speak some English), and where necessary, we will make appointments for you. Depending on the season and on our own commitments, we may even be persuaded to come with you and act as guides and/or interpreters! Ask us for more details.   Chez Chevassu
