Sports

Whatever your level, here you will find an activity that suits you.

MOUNTAIN BIKING

  • Secondary roads in the area are ideal for mountain biking. We can provide you with route maps of shorter or longer trips both for beginners and the most seasoned cyclist.
  • Excellent bikes can be rented at the château.
  • A number of mountain bike tracks start at the château. They range from easy to quite difficult and from 10 – 50 km.
  • An experienced guide is available if you so require.
  • The Morvan – the nearby national park – is a fabulous place for mountain biking. There are over 130 well-sign-posted tracks covering over 2,000 km!
  • If so desired we can arrange to take you there and pick you up.
  • If you want to make your bike trip extra special, order a sumptuous picnic! Château de Frétoy can arrange a surprise picnic at a specific place and time.

WALKING

The surroundings of the château are made for walking. The château itself is the starting point for a number of trips. The shortest walk is only 4 km. There are hundreds or others in the Morvan. You might run into some pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostella: part of their route leads through the Morvan. Roadmaps for all trips are available.

Suggestion: Instead of a backpack lunch enjoy a sumptuous picnic! If you so desire we will prepare it for you and deliver it when and where you choose.

TENNIS

We have an excellent concrete court and we can provide rackets and balls i necessary.

BASKETBALL

It is also possible to play basketball on our tennis court.

MINIGOLF

You can also use our 8 hole minigolf course beside the Château under the trees. A nice occupation for both adults and children. Golf clubs and -balls are available.

GOLF

The nearest course is in Autun, 20 km from the château. It's a magnificent 9 hole course.

18 holes courses can be found in the nearby cities of Beaune, Chalon and Dijon.

FISHING

Fishing is very popular in this part of France. You need a permit, which we will be glad to obtain for you.

QUAD BIKING

The Morvan is an excellent environment for driving quad bikes; the adventurous can ride through the steep tracks. We can organize trips for groups up to 8 people, lasting from 1 1/2 hour to one day, including stops and lunch. 

4x4

For cross country driving you head in the same direction: the Morvan. Here you will find a challenging course, where you can hire up to four cars.

WHITE WATER RAFTING

Rafters head for the Morvan. Once a day the reservoir sluice gates are opened and a huge torrent creates excellent rapids. 

OTHER SPORTS

Horseriding, climbing and canoeing can also be enjoyed nearby.
