For history lovers , the oldest hospice in France is a walk away as well as a beautiful feudal castle.. Vineyards.' spring gardens and bric-a-brac markets, summer music and wine events, autumn Jazz, Christmas markets and winter wine festivals; there is always something going on no matter what time of the year.Close to home is Saulieus Saturday food market , a hunt for treasures at the local brocante, wine tasting, or a balloon ride across the region.

About anna morgan

Hello,

I am Australian and after 2 decades in the UK decided I needed to have a complete change. Burgundy has the best of France, great food, magnificent countryside, charolais cattle and wonderful wine. I hope visitors can enjoy the change of pace as much as I have.

anna morgan purchased this farmhouse in 2011

Why anna morgan chose Mont-Saint-Jean

Mont St Jean is one of Burgundy's hidden treasures and boasts some of the best and most peaceful views in the Auxois region.

What makes this farmhouse unique

A peaceful home to rest and recuperate from the fast pace of modern life.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A lovely place to rest, to walk, to smell the grass, hear the birds and have drinks on the terrace, to sleep and wake up with a good feeling.

Really fun stay- I'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Anna's, the place was clean and very well decorated. Anna was quick to reply to us regarding any queries, all the amenities were in good condition. The scenery of the village and surrounding forests were also lush. We'll be back soon!

Fantastique!!

  • 5 of 5

Un lieu paisible et authentique pour se ressourcer. De l'énergie positive se dégage de ce lieu magique où le temps semble s'être arrêté. La vue vous offrira tout ce que la nature a de plus beau à vous offrir. La maison est très bien équipée pour cuisiner, vous détendre et profiter du cadre exceptionnel. Anna est une hôte exemplaire, chaleureuse et de bons conseils. Bref, allez-y les yeux fermés.

A lucky upgrade

  • 5 of 5

Anna is a gracious host with some good tips on places to visit. Her studio condo is beautiful but we were lucky to be upgraded to the much larger one bedroom. The views are so good I felt like I was in a painting - the vineyard, the gardens (both flower gardens and vegetable gardens), the cows, the rolling hills - it was mesmerizing! The evenings were cooler and the fireplace added just another romantic aspect to the lovely barn. She did an incredible job creating this very special home; the quintessential barn/farm house in the French countryside. It was spacious with a full modern kitchen, fireplace, washer/dryer, large shower, plenty of hot water and peaceful. I would recommend this with 2 thumbs up! We also had dinner at the Château just across the street and I would highly recommend that as well.

Gite in tranquil setting

  • 4 of 5

The property is in a quiet hamlet with impressive views of the valley. The property is well maintained and has been tastefully renovated with adequate kitchen equipment. The amenities were as described except there is no washing machine, but Anna kindly did a load of washing for us. It was delightful sitting on the deck overlooking the valley eating our meals or having pre dinner drinks. Anna was a most helpful host whose local knowledge was much appreciated. A lovely weekend escape or a quiet time away from busy city living. We enjoyed a meal at the hotel La Roche just across the road and spent time looking at the nearby villages and chateau Neuf .
