Château-Chalon is a commune in the Jura department in Franche-Comté in eastern France.

The commune is perched on a cliff in the first fold of the Jura mountains and commands a spectacular prospect. It is reached from the west by a road with numerous hairpin curves. Its location has earned it nomination as one of the Most Beautiful Villages of France.

Although the west side of the village is a sheer cliff, the east side slopes gently away in vineyards famous for their wine, however mostly for their white wine, Château-Chalon AOC.
