About this listing

This large room with central sitting area and fireplace was the working space of monks and artists. It catches the evening sun with views of the forest. The tower bathroom has a vintage bathtub on feet and large rain shower.

The space

This was the work room for the Augustine monks in the 17th century and was followed up as atelier for artists residing at the chateau. One notices the suitable floor boards and a thriving energy. The bathroom is situated in a tower and has a tub on feet and large rain-shower.
This medieval dream castle is smack in the middle of France, in south Burgundy. Full of history and charm it is the epitome of a real French experience. Peace, authenticity and energy is what this site promises. Once inhabited by an Augustinian monastic community and noblesse, it breathes its past to the rolling hills surrounding it. Nine hundred hectares of woods provide for walks, horse-riding and picnicking along serene rivers connecting lovely villages at every angle. This is truly France without the crowd and hassles one finds in most areas during the holidays...
The village nearby at 3.5 km is St. Gengoux-le-National, with its cozy medieval streets, shops and restaurants. There is also a once believed "miraculous" fountain of youth loved by the king himself in 1793. The best way to get here is by bike, and in fact the famous Voie Vertes that takes one over an old railroad 70 km from Chalon-sur-Saone to Macon through crisp countrysides, stops at this village.
There is something to do for everyone in the area, from fishing to visiting archaeological sites, ballooning, wine-tasting and culinary adventures at some of the best restaurants in the world, to visiting famous destinations such as Beaune, Cluny, Taize and Tournus. There is also lots to do for the children at several fun parks that make it a complete vacation for all. It is also perfectly situated for before or after driving down south, although after you discover the secrets of Burgundy, you wouldn't have to go down south at all!
We have rooms at the castle itself with ensuite towers and great efforts are made to respect the origin of the building. There is also a "Gite" with a surface area of 140m². This cozy cottage has a balcony looking over a pond of Koi carp. It features a large complete kitchen warmed by a Godin wooden stove, bathroom with an original bathtub on feet, and rustic living room with fireplace. It sleeps up to four adults and two children.

We were looking for recovering and inspiration in our trip. And the chateau was the place where we finally met with Muses and rested from stresses of the big city as well. This is the list of some things which made our trip memorable: architecture of the castle and neighbouring village, picturesque landscapes, interior decoration and of cause inhabitants of the chateau and their creative minds together with their hospitality. In addition, if you’ll decide to stay for dinner at the chateau ask Jeane to serve Gado-gado (Indonesian dish) which definitely worth a try. Thank you Jeane and whole team for making us happier. We highly recommend this place!

Jeane was absolutely amazing. She went above and beyond making our stay as awesome as possible. Before we arrived she reached out to one winery that we were unable to get ahold of because we were in California. She got answers and relayed the information to us. She also suggested a great restaurant that we made reservations at. When we arrived she made us feel right at home. She gave us a tour of the chateau, made us coffee and lit a fire in the common area living room. The room we were in was huge, the bed was comfortable and water pressure in the shower was good. The only downside to our stay was we did not have enough time. Our schedule only allowed for one night in the chateau. I would suggest to anyone to do yourself a favor and book at least 2 nights. It is a great relaxing time and Jeane will make you feel right at home.

We stayed at Burnand's castle on our way back from our wedding with my wife! This place has the charm of the old castle of Burgundy. Jean also exposed her artwork, turning this place in a hors-du-temps bed and breakfast. Jeane was also super easy to communicate with and accepter a super late checkin (around midnight). Highly recommended!

Jeane and Rudy offered hospitality of a high order at this amazing castle, allowing us to feel most welcome guests. We were firstly given a private and guided tour of Jeane's exposition in a nearby building and then later were privileged to enjoy dinner with them at a nearby restaurant they had suggested. Breakfast in the large kitchen was a delight. The St Augustin suite is highly recommended and the beautiful nude depictions displayed on every wall of our apartment added to the experience. Nearby woodland is available to walk through.

The chateau is a beautiful gem set in the heart of the Burgundy countryside. We all loved Jeanne's amazing sculptures, incredible art and stunning views. We stayed in the silver room which was huge & had the most comfortable bed, rain shower & gorgeous stand alone bath. Jeanne cooked a really tasty dinner which was made all the more special by sharing the experience with another family on a long table. The breakfast was also perfect with a wide variety of fresh breads, pastries etc we just wish we had longer here. Thank you Jeanne and to all who run the chateau with you, we will definitely be back!!

Anyone loving art, history and who is warm-hearted will enjoy feeling the energy that this property brings. Myself, I have traveled all my life and understand the need of feeling at home wherever one is, this feeling is universal and attainable through humanitarian hospitality and understanding. I enjoy sharing my undying enthusiasm about life and its wonders, the source of which we search wherever we go, so many things to tell, so much to see, so much to experience and when we think we're there, it is still a long way to go...
