Fairy tale castle, in good condition, with a guest house and a large former hunting lodge used as a reception room of 300 m; on 14.6 hectares. Situated in a quiet hamlet in southern Burgundy with most magnificent views.

General description:

- The castle originating from the 13th century, was renovated in the late 19th century, and more recently improved by the present owners. The two main living floors with over 300m2 per floor offer 4 reception rooms, 5 bedrooms (including 2 suites), 5 shower / bathrooms and 7 WCs, with large cellars below and a further floor to develop in the loft.

- The independent guest house has 2 bedrooms, bathroom and shower room

- The original hunting lodge is now used as an art gallery or large reception room

- Stable buildings house 4 horse boxes, garages and open barns

- A bread oven building can be renovated

- 14 hectares of wooded grounds, of which 12 hectares are attached and 2 hectares are detached.

The property is in good general condition maintaining its original details. The neighbouring 10th century church gives the area a high architectural protection status, whilst the present castle owner has kept the castle ‘non-listed’, allowing larger development freedom and privacy.

Situation:

The castle is located about 20 kms north of Cluny, at the crossroads of the Chalonais and Mâconnais vineyards, dominating its hamlet and maintaining privacy in the walled castle grounds without being isolated. Great views over the distant hills are seen from the property, reposing in its calm and privileged situation.

Many local shops and facilities are found at a few minutes’ drive in the medieval market town of St Gengoux le National. Chalon sur Saone is 30 kms away for any larger amenities.

The TGV station of Le Creusot/Montchanin is only 25 kms away; from here London is a 5 hour train ride, Paris 1h20 and Lyon 40 minutes.
