We stayed just one night on our way south in February. What an amazing place - beautifully restored castle on top of a hill with stunning views. Very comfortable and quirky suite and the most delicious breakfast which we ate in front of log fire - would like to return for longer!

We are two Australians, who stayed in "Le petit gite" at Le Vieux Chateau for one week for the first time in May 2014.

The gite, which is part of the old chateau, has 2 bedrooms (first floor bedroom sleeps 2 in one bed, and the ground floor bedroom sleeps 3 in 2 beds), a lounge, a combined kitchen/dining area, and bathroom/laundry and toilet. It is centrally heated, but also has a wood stove, giving a different form of warmth and atmosphere. There is a private garden attached to the gite, which looks onto the surrounding hills and vineyards. During our May visit, we ate virtually all our meals in the garden, taking in the lovely views and atmosphere. It is a 1-2 minute walk to the boulangerie/la poste. The boulanger is a delight - you speak to him in French and he replies in English! There are 2 restaurants in the town square, but one was seldom open during our stay. There is under cover parking for one car at the gite, but ample parking space if you have more than one vehicle.

Leynes is a lovely, quiet and authentic French village. Whilst there are not many services in the village, it is very close to Macon and Creches-sur-Saone, which have all amenities you could want.

We loved it here so much that, at the end of the week, we asked our hosts, Martine and Francois Chabot, somewhat jokingly (but only somewhat!) if they would sell the gite to us. Not surprisingly, but regrettably for us, they said "Non", but fortunately for us when asked if we could return and stay for three months, they said "Bien sur".

We have just finished a glorious three month stay at the gite. You could not want better hosts than Martine and Francois. They are fluent in French (obviously), German and English, and provided us with invaluable assistance when we attempted to do unbelievably complex things, like opening a bank account in France (simple in Australia, very difficult in France!).

They are a mine of information about the local region and Burgundy generally, and are justifiably proud of their roles as custodians and protectors of their heritage - particularly the Chateau, which they have restored beautifully over a 20 year period.

The Chabots also have two donkeys - Paddy, the gentle old donkey, and Pepito, the young, frisky one. They are a delight and love carrots if you are inclined to feed them.

We could have stayed at the gite forever, but we needed to move out of our comfort zone into rural France and set up by ourselves. Martine and Francois have given us an amazing start to our new life in France. Merci beaucoup!

Nice restored smail castle, the B&B room consisted of a downstairs living room and bathroom and an upstairs bedroom. The facilities are simple and the bedroom had an old fashioned "closet bed". The view from the living room is beautiful, the hosts very friendly and the breakfast was marvallous.
