We had a fabulous holiday staying at Chateau de Barnay for a week. Living in our own castle was truly magical - sleeping in a turret; cooking in a lovely new kitchen where the stove is set in the space of an ancient fireplace; playing boules in the garden overlooking spectacular Burgundian countryside... Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming and offered great dining suggestions not only for Southern Burgundy but also for nearby Lyon. All in all a great stay!
This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! We - a family of four - recently stayed in this magnificent castle for four nights and wish we could have stayed for a week or two. We had an incredible time exploring the ancient castle, driving around and doing day trips in the beautiful Burgundy region, and enjoying the laid back lifestyle of the village of Saint-Martin-de-Lixy, a village of 100 or so people. We had the first floor to ourselves and it was extremely spacious for four people! The photos don't give it justice. Marie Thérèse, the mother of the castle who lives on the ground floor, is completely accommodating and such a sweet woman. She also has excellent taste in scarves! We took her out to dinner in Charlieu one night and she treated us to a delicious apéritif with her daughter, son-in-law, and nephew our last night there. It was truly a magical experience at Château de Barnay and something I will never forget in my lifetime!
A wonderfully old, historic, and well furnished and equipped apartment in a lovely old OLD castle. Nice area, quiet, but close to a good town for all you need. Recommended.
Geweldig kasteel in het Franse landschap. Wij hebben hier 6 nachten geslapen met onze 4-jarige dochter in Augustus. Veel ruimte, volledig ingericht, veel sfeer en gezelligheid. Prima, gastvrije ontvangst met veel toeristeninformatie. Bedankt Catherine!
- beschrijving klopt volledig.
- heerlijk compleet.
- ongelofelijk schoon. De hele dag op blote voeten, en nauwelijks vies!
- zeer goede prijs.
- dorpjes ver weg. De dichtstbijzijnde supermarkt is 30 min lopen, of je gaat met de auto.
- zo leuk dat je meteen terug wilt ;-)

We had a great time with our family of four (husband, wife, little girl (3 yrs) and baby boy (1 yr)) at the Barnay castle. We experience great French hospitality and were welcomed by the whole family who also offered some very nice home baked cherry pie.
The apartment was great, very spacey with several nice rooms and original chateau fixtures. Great views out of the large windows of the surrounding countryside.
The furnishing of the apartment was great. It offered all the things a family like ours needed; two showers and towels, a kitchen and cooking equipment, three bedrooms and linen and it also included several toys for our children which were very handy as the weather wasn't great.
Overall experience great!! Very nice castle, apartment, countryside and last but not least people.
Catherine was easy to communicate with and gave us great directions to the castle. The castle is Awesome! Truly amazing! The apartment spans across one entire floor of the castle. The view is beautiful. All the charm of a country castle with all the ease of an up-to-date kitchen and bathrooms. Hope we can stay longer next time.
