About this listing

This medieval dream castle is 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...
St. Gengoux-le-National, the village nearby at 3.5 km, has cozy medieval streets, shops and restaurants. In 1793 the king believed a "miraculous" fountain of youth flowed into the beautiful wash-house in the centre and named the village a royal spa.
The famous bike route, Voie Verte, that uses an old railroad for 70 km from Chalon-sur-Saone to Macon through crisp countrysides, stops at this village.
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 driving down south, although after you discover the secrets of Burgundy, you wouldn't have to go down south at all!
The chateau is also reachable by TGV from Paris in an hour and 26 minutes. From Gare de Lyon to Montchanin, Le Creusot station.
Please note that smokers are kindly requested to smoke outside.
it's a castle. What can you say? Burnand is sweet little town, out of the way though so if you're on bikes like we were, bring a picnic dinner. But it's lovely! place was extraordinary... we kept pinching ourselves. Jeane was very nice and we're glad we had a chance to meet her. Go there while it's still a bnb.
Machtig mooie plek en zeer relaxte sfeer. Heerlijke overnachtingsplek, lekkere (hemel)bedden en goed eten. Aanrader!
Jeane and her family were extremely generous, welcoming and accommodating. The Chateau was beautiful and the art throughout the hallways and around the property added greatly to the charm. Although seemingly in a very quiet tucked away town, it was easy to get around experience all the region had to offer -- great food and wine, amazing historical sites and easily accessible bike paths to neighboring towns. We are especially grateful for Leon's help in driving us around for the day and to/from the train station given our rental car mishap. He gave us a great "local's" perspective and was very easy going and accommodating.
Endroit extraordinaire, historique, charmant, avec une tres belle vue sur la campagne et le petit village. Jeanne est une est un hôte formidable, très intéressé par le bien-être des personnes. Comme elle est artiste, est très agréable parler d'art avec elle. Merci pour cette merveilleuse expérience et a bientot!

About the Host, Jeane
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...
