Chateau de Burnand
Sublime castle in France 

This medieval dream castle lavishes with French elegance and nobility in many pleasant details. Peace, authenticity and energy is what this site promises. The accommodation served as a work room for the Augustine monks in the 17th century and later as atelier for artists residing at the chateau. 

Nine hundred hectares of woods provide for walks, horse-riding and picnicking along serene rivers in the middle of France, in south Burgundy. 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.
