view web site ›'s insider take:

One of France's great Renaissance châteaux, Ancy-le-Franc's perfectly symmetrical, chalky white edifice—surrounded by a moat and manicured grounds—was completed in 1550 by Italian architect Sebastiano Serlio. Its location, about 20 miles east of Chablis in northern Burgundy, makes it a great day trip. Visitors can tour dozens of salons, including the wood-paneled Arts Pavilion, which has a gilded fireplace and antique furniture, and view the original frescoes and inlays of the richly decorated chapel. Guided tours last about an hour and begin at 10:30, 11:30, 2, 3, and 4 (also at 5 pm between late March and September). Leave time to walk around the grounds and visit the farm buildings.—David Downie

Open daily late March to mid-November, except on nonholiday Mondays. (Groups can visit year-round with advance reservations.)
