Amazing museums - never seen anything like it! War planes, motorbikes, racing cars, fire engines. The castle itself is worth a visit too. Amazing visit, highly recommend stopping there.

Spent three weeks in France, visiting this place was my favorite thing I did on my trip. We came to Beaune to drink wine. My wife found this place and didn’t tell me anything about it before we went. As a pilot, air traffic controller, and veteran, I was a kid in a candy store. Highly recommend.

This was a very pleasant surprise for everyone.
Both the girls (15-12y) and the 9y boy were enchanted.
This is the most insolite museum.
You are not expecting to see some Migs (real size!!) and other militar airplanes all together in the French countryside!!
Hope you have into your group someone passionate of airplanes who will be able to answer the thousands of questions to compare the different planes. And explain the evolution during the last 50y.

Simply surreal. In a single site: 300+ vintage motorcycles. 30+ Abarth race and rally cars. Dozens of vintage tractors. 80+ Cold war era fighter planes. Thousands, and I mean thousands, of model planes, cars, motorbikes. This is " Hoarders" gone utterly b@t$h1t crazy. Go. Just go. I cannot stress enough that your jaw will drop at this crazy assembly of items. Sad in that had they just spent the money on the upkeep of the actual chateau... Well... You'll see. Go. Seriously.

In an attempt to indulge in some French culture we visited the chateau to take a look around and hopefully taste and buy some wine. From the outside it looked amazing and the fighter jets you could see from the gates wet my appetite even further. How it changed when we went in.

After asking if we could have a tour of the chateau the lady on the front desk replied "NON!!!" and wagged her finger at us like a rubbish European footballer who totally disagreed with a referees decision. I honestly don't think she could have been any ruder had she tried. Safe to say I turned around and high tailed it out of there. Essentially because French law stops me doing what I actually wanted to do.

The wine tasting was actually just inside the door and one of the party suggested we just try some wine. I could not think of anything I would rather do less than give them any of my money !!

I wish I could tell you about the chateau and its contents but safe to say the initial welcome was somewhat lacking in any thing like a human emotion.

My friend and I were in Burgundy and had had some truly wonderful wine tasting experiences along our way. We stopped at Chateau de Savigny for a tasting and it was the worst wine tasting experience I had in my month in France. The employee in the cave, a young man, pulled 3 bottles for our degustation gave us 2 glasses and left. Not to be seen again until we left to pay. He didn't tell us anything about the wine we were tasting or the vineyard (and we speak french so there was not a language barrier). In addition, the wine was not good. The worst I tasted in Burgundy. Very disappointing experience

There are so many planes and cars here that you could spend many hours looking at all of them unless it happens to rain, as it does often in this region. (The grapevines are kept short because the climate is so wet here.) It's no fun at all in the rain. There is very little cover and you are guaranteed to get soaked.

We would not call the part we saw a "museum" because there was little or no explanation of the vehicles displayed. More accurately, what we saw was a plane junkyard. It would have been much more interesting if the vehicles were operable, and if we knew what they were and why they were important.

Also, my husband, who doesn't speak French, got confused and paid double. It's supposed to cost 10 euros per adult, but he gave the guy selling tickets 40 euros for two of us. The guy kept the overpayment and then denied later that we had paid extra. So, it was a very short and expensive visit because we were rained out before we saw even half of it, and the part we saw was not that great.

The village is quite lovely, if a bit contrived for the tourists. Almost like a movie set.

The Chateau is very interesting.

The Reception/tasting rooms themselves are quite stunning, inside and out.

On the outside, the use of bands of protruding rough stones at intervals should
look awful but from any distance at all it looks utterly lovely, and decorative in a surprising way.

The contents across the whole property are beyond imagining.

It's as if a young boy came into a billion dollars and spent it on all the toys he could want. Not content with buying and building literally thousands of scale model aeroplane kits, he started collecting full-size aeroplanes as well, and they're lined up haphazardly all around the property.

Then he started on motorbikes, and when he'd bought every scale model available he bought the real things too. Some of them are as found, some are in mint condition, and one or two are somewhat over-restored. In better condition than the day they left the factory.

And model war machines and dioramas.

And full-sized fire appliances from across the ages.

Oh, and did I mention tractors? There are tractors too.

Jet engines, a full-sized satellite, some awesome model rockets, and various bits and pieces the use of which I could never possibly imagine.

Then the Chateau itself can be explored, up and down, though not in every nook and cranny. But the nooks you are allowed into are fascinating. And the crannies?
Well you'll have to see those for yourself. You just cannot take it all in, not in one day anyway.

The grounds are huge, and picnics are encouraged, under enormous shade trees.
While you're eating, the kids can climb up and look into the cockpits of F16 fighters and hovercraft, or wander over to the deer paddocks.

And you can taste (and buy) some of the superb local output from the myriad grape vines scattered all around.

It's mad. It's amazing. It's unique.

Go there. Go out of your way to go there.

The day we were there a bunch of classic Bentleys arrived in the carpark. I was not at all surprised.

A top quality investment of time and money - on my part, I mean.

p.s. if you know classic cars, their collection of Abarths must be the finest in the world.

The castle was nice looking on the outside but this was a total tourists trap. The wine was awful. If you are interested in the model car, plane or truck collection this is your spot though.

We visited this castle in June 2013. A jumble sale would be better organised and labelled than this compilation of items in lofts, various rooms and garden/field. There is a total lack of information for the visitors and no one seems interested to welcome and inform the visitors. The castle is badly in need of restoration and therefore the exorbitant entry fee of €10.00 per person for seeing an assortment of collector's junks is a total rip off. No need to waste money and time at this castle, there are many more attractive and cheaper places to visit in the area.
