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.
