= marks the location of this home
St Gengoux is a wonderful old mediaeval village with a 12th century church originally affilliated to the former 10th century abbey (now ruins) in nearby Cluny. There are two bistro-style restaurant/bars in the village and several shops, including bakers, butcher and general store, plus a large supermarket on the outskirts, and an extensive cave (wine warehouse).
Something about ourselves
I am Stella and my husband is Robert. We recently retired and purchased our house in Burgundy in 2010. We are lucky enough to live in Sydney Australia for their summer and six months in France for theirs. We enjoy walking and cycling, and tennis.
