This is the Medieval town of St. Genoux. A 30 minute walk from our temporary home in Burnand.
A small but beautiful town with a natural spring that a French King considered the fountain of youth, so naturally he had a castle built there.
All that is left of that castle is the dungeon tower and the ancient laundromat. The springs themselves still flow but now with a sign warning the water is non-potable.
While touring the city, we collected picnic foods and made plans to hike up to an old look out tower perched atop a near-by hill.
Heres the village from above…
Below is another nearby city, (this one much bigger, though still a small city) Chalon-sur-saone where our host Jeane took John to do some shopping at the Marche.
One thought on “St. Gengoux le National, our day off.”
What wonderful adventures your having!! Love your blogs. Love mom
