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.

Guest access
Guests can roam around freely through the corridors linking the rooms, dining and living room with a good library, billiard room and all around the property of 15 hectares overlooking the village and valley towards hills.

Other things to note
There is a forest of 900 hectares at the back of the castle that has roman ruins and roads, fields, beautiful views and wonderful nature. At the back of the castle is also a converted farm where exhibitions and events take place from time to time, there is fruit garden and family chapel towards the woods. The village has a 11th century church with frescoes (monument) and a farm with a variety of animals that will amuse the kids. There is also a horse training facility with a superior selection of horses.

Burnand, Burgandy, France

Everyone knows that Burgundy is an important wine and food area but cannot ignore its historical value. Peace and quiet reign in this beautiful region of France where the French way of life seems preserved. The green of nature seems more vivid and the energy of the earth persists as witness of the old world.

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...
