Marmagne chateau / country house description

The surpassing image that is provided upon arrival in St. Just (Fain les Moutiers), is the breathtaking view in the
burgundy landscape. About 30 km far the eye sweeps through meadows, forests, monasteries and farms in the west of the nature reserve 'Morvan', to the south with view of the medieval town Semür-en-Auxois, and continue towards Beaune.

The artists Susanne and Ralf Räde originating from
Sweden and the Rhineland have built their studios here 20 years ago
in the stone walls of an old homestead with a monumental barn, especially because of this inspiring location.
Today this place situated on the hill of St. Just emanates absolute silence, relaxation and contemplation in scenic idyll.

The building is oriented all the way to the south.
Two overlying studios are combined together by a wrought-iron spiral staircase to a type of loft,
and from inside out they also offer a view directly into the garden and the adjoining wide plateau.

The lower living area (54m2) has an open kitchen, dining area, fireplace, and at the rear side, a French double bed and separate shower room.
On the first floor an equally large room opens out with wide
double bed, spacious living area with sofa, separate
toilet and detached bathroom with view of the countryside.

The entire interior has been created with art and craft works, with stone walls, oak and limestone floors, marble mosaic. The furniture exclusively is of natural wood.

In the outside area there is a garden available for our guests, including a private swimming pool (7.20 m). Outdoor dining area, 4 - 6 persons, in front of the wall with the view is the grill and resting place with dining table for 4 persons.

              Saint Just is an ancient settlement, which is attached to Fain les Moutiers, 2km away. Here there are about 10 farmsteads with gaps, lined up on the hill with each other.

              You can sit here on a beautiful summer evening, perhaps with a glass of wine and looking into the open countryside to the south.

              Behind the final horizon line, you might probably dream of the sea, Marseille, Lavandou, Nice. This of course is not true, but along this line there, is the famous Weinstrasse of central Burgundy. Nuit St Georges, Beaune etc., where the famous wines of this region are grown. Each and everyone tells oneself, ‘I will go there tomorrow’.

              Maybe you can also simply reminisce the day, with a view of the dark forest areas of the nature reserve 'Morvan' one thinks of a visit to Avallon and Vezelay with its impressive Basilica 'Saint Madelaine'. Or, on the left side, just over the hill, Montbard, with its structurally interesting Cistercian abbey 'Abbaye de Fontenay'.

              Everywhere in the villages and small towns of Burgundy, the Tuscany of France, there are interesting churches, mainly in the Romanesque style of construction. Right at the foot of the hill of St. Just within a walk of 15 minutes is the old Moutiers St Jean, founded in 650, with its ancient monastery walls. A visit to the capital city Dijon is highly recommended. Gorgeous castles and manor houses appear here and there, on the way to this place.

              Maybe you can draw the circle closer and plan a bike tour for the next day without having to compromise on cultural aspects. (For e.g. Castle in Epoisses with a beautiful park, 35 minutes by bike )

              Following are some other highlights that are easy to reach by car:

              - Montbard and ‘Abbaye de Fontenay' 20 min

              - 'Alesia' with its impressive new museum 30 min

              - The medieval town of Semur-en-Auxois 15min

              - And Flavigny, with its magnificent stone houses 20 min

              - Chablis and the medieval town Noyers 35 min

              - Ancy le Franc, and its Renaissance Castle 40 min

              - Vezelay with a stop in Avallon 45 min

              - Dijon, not to forget, a piece of candy for all art lovers 75 min

              - Adventure Park: Animals, carousels and swimming pool 30 min

              - Baumkletterpark (Tree climbing) at Avallon 40 min

              - Small outdoor pool in Epoisses 15 min

              - Beach on the lake, Lac de Pont 20 minutes

              - A drive along the renowned 'Canal de Bourgogne'

              There are many castles in the nearby surrounding, which usually offer

              interesting exhibitions in summer....
