Restaurants, food & wine

The area has restaurants ranging from good and simple to michelin star rated. If you want to take a break from cooking , then join our table d'hôtes (guest table). We serve a delicious 3-course menu daily with mostly regional dishes and always using fresh products. In good weather we serve meals outside, where we can enjoy the food, cosy dinner talks and beautiful sunsets and a starry sky.
For wine lovers there is more than enough to taste in Burgundy. And this is also possible on site. We have carefully put together a wine tasting of various delicious Burgundy wines. Our own wine 'Latour' is also included.
Holiday home Chevannes is located between several beautiful wine regions: Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé in the east, Chablis in the north, Côte de Nuits in the east and Mâcon in the south.


Activities

Holiday home Donjon is situated in a rural area, surrounded by beautiful hilly landscape with extensive farmlands with grazing cattle. Domain Château Latour is surrounded by a very large garden with a lovely swimming pool. The environment is green and calm.

The large open air swimming pool is quiet and is shared with our other guests. The accommodation is small-scale, so no crowds in and around the pool but plenty of room for everyone. The pool is child safe as it is completely fenced, has a porch and a large lawn to lie down. The large garden of the country house has a number of trees for shade in the afternoon sun, a trampoline and a games field..

The environment is idyllic with the hills of the beautiful Parc du Morvan in the distance. The immediate surroundings are very attractive for those seeking tranquility, outdoor enthusiasts and those who love wine and good food. The surrounding countryside invites you to take walks or go bike riding (for example along canal du Nivernais with a nice flat cycle route of about 180 km) directly from the accommodation. Motorcyclists will enjoy themselves with quiet roads, beautiful nature and picturesque villages.
In the area you can find a video grenier (attic clearance) or a brocante market on several locations almost every weekend.
There is a lot of cultural heritage in Burgundy. Visit the historic towns of Autun, Nevers, Beaune, Vezélay or the Celtic excavations of Bibracte with a wonderful museum. Go on a fun canoe trip on the Loire, admire nature in Morvan nature park, play golf or go karting. Discover the gastronomic delights of the region with its delicious Boeuf Bourguignon, Coq au vin, Burgundian wines and numerous other regional specialties.

Een weekje bij Château Latour is om gevlogen. Wat een prachtige plek, wat een gastvrijheid. Woorden schieten tekort.
We hebben genoten van de heerlijke maaltijden en niet te vergeten van een informatieve wijnproeverij.
Thérèse en Evert Jan, heel veel succes, geluk en gezondheid gewenst.

Drie nachten Château Latour is voor ons te kort gebleken. De warmte en hartelijkheid van eigenaars Thérèse en Evert Jan, gecombineerd met een stijlvol ingericht huis, een fijn zwembad en overheerlijke maaltijden maakte een slot van onze vakantie compleet. Heel hartelijk dank voor de goede zorgen en dagbestedings-/diner- adviezen. De kamers Loire en Canne vielen erg in de smaak! Ook de ‘rolverdelig’ waarover je sprak, Thérèse, blijkt prima te werken! Succes nog met de volgende bouwprojecten, en zeker tot een volgende keer!

Of je op doorreis bent, of een paar dagen langer wilt genieten, Chateau Latour is een fijne plek om te zijn: goed verzorgde kamer, ontbijt met homemade jams, prachtige omgeving en een gastheer en -vrouw die er voor je zijn. Een aanrader!

Een uitstekend adres om een paar dagen te vertoeven. Evert-Jan is een perfekte gastheer. Mooi huis omgeven door een zeer grote tuin met prachtig zwembad. De sfeer is erg goed. Je voelt je er meteen thuis. De kamer die we hadden was prima in orde. Het ontbijt was ook heel goed verzorgd. Kortom een fijn adres bij fijne mensen. We komen graag nog een keertje terug bij Evert-Jan en Therese.
