St. Gengoux le National, our day off.

Image

This is the mid-evil town of St. Genoux. A 30 minute walk from our temporary home in Burnand.

A small but beautiful town with a natural spring that an old French King considered the fountain of youth, so naturally built a castle 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.

Here’s Sierra post picnic.

This is another nearby city, (this one much bigger, though still a small city) Chalon-sur-saone where Jeane took John to do some marche shopping.
