Location & tips

Additional information

You can cycle and walk between the vineyards and enjoy the atmosphere in the many authentic wine villages
Margaret of Burgundy The castle hides a secret: Margaret of Burgundy is said to have died in this castle. She was smuggled into the castle by her cousin Marie and lived there until her death in 1333. Everything in the deepest secret and there is therefore no evidence to confirm the story. In any case, according to the history books, it is not correct. Margaret was imprisoned in Normandy for adultery and died there in 1315. True or false: the story earned the castle the nickname 'château de Marguerite de Bourgogne'. An hour-long guided tour leads past keep, gothic chapel and the justice tower. This tower, La tour de justice, is attached to the chapel and shows a collection of weapons and the hall of the guards. An underground storage space is visible on the ground floor through a grid. It looks more like a dungeon. Perhaps the space was used for that too. During the tour you will also take a look at the underground corridors that connect the different buildings. Stock storage was the main function of the underground spaces so that it could be broadcast for a while at the castle. The underground corridors also lead to the entrance to the wine cellars. Of course, a tasting of the wines is possible, the castle is surrounded by vineyards for a reason. Finally, the tour takes you through the gardens with flowers, aromatic plants and shrubs trimmed in various animal shapes. The castle has been owned by Patricia and Olivier Poelaert since 2009. They have invested heavily in the castle and organize all kinds of activities: concerts, medieval parties, walks, children's activities etc. Successfully, because the number of visitors has increased tenfold in five years. For a quiet visit to the castle, avoid the Sunday afternoon. Finally, a pointless fact: the Château de Couches was the setting for the video clip Cry Wolf by the band A Ha in 1986. This dated video can be found on Youtube. It gives a good impression of a visit to the castle during Halloween. But for the rest of the year, despite Margaret's underground dungeon and Margaret's supposed secret residence, the castle is a trip with no dark edges. A castle where children imagine themselves to be knights or ladies. And their parents dream of a life as a contemporary castle lord or woman surrounded by vineyards.
Historical building. It was built in 1610 on older foundations and has housed a large landowner or wealthy merchant. After the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, under Louis XIV, the Protestants clandestinely performed their worship here, hence the origin of the name.
About 25 minutes drive you will find the golf course at Beaune,
In dit openlucht natuurzwembad kun je heerlijk een duik nemen op de warme dagen.
Dit zwembad is gelegen aan de uitgang van Nolay, op de weg naar Couches.

Zowel lokale bewoners, vakantiegangers als toeristen vinden alle genot van zwemmen, nietsdoen en strandspelen in een volledig natuurlijke omgeving. Twee pontons begrenzen de duik- en zwemgebieden en de omliggende plekken bieden gastvrije plaatsen, op het zand of op het platteland, in de schaduw van de bomen of in de zon.

De kwaliteit van het water wordt regelmatig gecontroleerd. Douches en toiletten zijn ook beschikbaar, evenals de snackbar op de naburige camping Les Chaumes du Mont.
Toegang tot het meer en de locatie is gratis voor iedereen.
