Play hooky in Burgundy

From La Maison Jeanne d’Arc, you can radiate several days following the advice we give you.

Imagine going for a walk in the castle park or around the lake of the Bourdon (the bumblebee 🙂 and ponds, two golf courses forty minutes from the house, a beautiful country market on Saturday morning in Toucy, castles to explore, wine taste, an old farm full of animals to visit for children, fantastic ropes to challenge, horseback riding, and Guédelon, unique medieval site in the world.

To penetrate the soul of the Puisaye, in addition to tourist guide books, read one of the beautiful pages of literature, The House of Claudine by Colette.
