The village has two good restaurants,3 and 5mn walk from the house, but no bakery. Two bakery vans are coming every morning with fresh bread and croissants, one of them has some groceries. Check for the horn!

Jean Delisle is native of Granville (Normandy) and used to be resident of Virginia for 14 years
Jean Delisle purchased this house in 1998
Jean Delisle first saw the house in 1998 and fell in love with the spectacular location and the beautiful architecture
The location is great in the village, quiet, close to 2 nice restaurants (3mn walk)
The house is spacious, the countryside is breathtaking and marvellously unspoilt with rolling hills and lovely walks
A huge and beautiful house, old but with every modern applicance and good heating. Beautiful garden and view. Lovely decoration, very elegant, a well accomplished mix between classic (lovely cristal lamps) and modern, it had the feeling of an upscale boutique hotel and at the same time was very cozy. . One of the small bedrooms had bunk beds and was ideal for children. It is next to a small medieval village. You need a car and there are no shops in the vicinity. All the bedrooms are in the second floor so not ideal for people with reduced mobility or small children. Great kitchen. Very nice owner, constantly availabel on the phone and email.
This is a great property. Very peaceful location but not isolated. The house is very well furnished and the owner is very friendly and extremely responsive. Just perfect. Thank you, mr. Delisle, for this carefree holiday ;)
We recently spent a wonderful week at La Bulnière in Mont Saint Jean. As the pictures suggest, the house has a fairy tale quality and wonderful, spacious grounds, which help to make a stay there particularly pleasant and restful. There are ample places to sit and enjoy a coffee outside and we also enjoyed sitting in the sunshine in the lounge each morning, admiring the view. The house itself is very clean and spacious with good facilities including an espresso machine. We also appreciated the ease with which we could access Wifi. There is plenty of space for all to relax and 'do their own thing' when required and, during the alternate days we spent at the house in between sight-seeing, our nephews were frequently found at the table tennis table.
The village itself is, as others have said, absolutely charming and so peaceful (even though Jean assured us that it was the 'busy' season there!). Supermarkets are within easy reach in Saulieu and Pouilly (only 15-20 minutes drive) and we found it helpful that the one in Saulieu was open until 12:30 on Sunday morning (the day after we arrived).
In terms of sight-seeing, there are many interesting locations to explore and we enjoyed a visit to Semur en Auxios (a medieval town about half an hour away) as well as to Dijon and Beaune. For children, the ruined castle at Thir makes an interesting visit, with medieval games to play in the castle grounds.
Jean himself was a very welcoming and helpful host who was very keen to ensure that we had everything we needed. As others have stated, he is also very prompt in responding to questions in emails which was an excellent help as we prepared for our visit.
All in all, La Bulnière is a wonderful location which we would warmly recommend to others and we very much hope to return one day in the future.

Look no further. La Bulniere fulfils all the above and more. We have enjoyed three weeks of complete R&R for three generations in this spacious villa. The house is exceptionally well mainained, exceptionally clean and the owner, Jean, goes out of his way to make one feel extremely welcome. He is ever available online to address any queries that may arise. Wifi and internet provide excellent communication links for those who feel they are totally cut off from the world in this rural corner. Being tastefully furnished, it is a haven in which to relax should the weather prove inclement. The village is quiet, populated more at weekends, but the local people are friendly even to those with rudimentary French. The rural walks around the village on roads with little traffic, are ideal to tank up on fresh air and admire the peaceful countryside,. Negotiable also for prams. Further afield Beaune and Dijon are reached within an hour by car whilst many other towns and villages of note are also within easy travel distance.
My children and grandchildren likewise gave their undisputed approval of the villa so this is not solely a destination for the other end of the generation scale ! A car is essential if only for shopping, some 20mins distant.
My wife and I were traveling with our good friends and we were looking for the idyllic Burgundy experience and we certainly found it in this property. This home simply epitomizes country charm yet has every possible modern convenience. The first floor living area and kitchen make for a wonderful social center and the grounds are spectacular. The village of Mont-Saint Jean is small and absolutely charming and the location is convenient to most of the area highlights. The owner of the property, Jean Delisle, is the perfect host. He familiarizes you with all the workings of the property and was always available to answer any questions that may arise. I should also add that prior to our arrival any questions I contacted Jean about were answered within an hour which made this rental experience smooth and hassle free. We have rented numerous homes throughout France and this was far and away the easiest experience. Lastly, I would like to add a recommendation for the restaurant Les Roches which is located literally next door to this property. We dined there on two occasions and the meals were excellent. The first evening we were made to feel very welcome and the second evening we were treated like long time friends and regular customers. If you stay in Mont-Saint Jean don't miss the opportunity to dine at Les Roches. A beautiful region and a lovely property made for wonderful experience.
La maison est vaste, bien chauffée, et très bien isolée (doubles vitrages, stores électriques). Elle est aussi très lumineuse, grâce aux baies vitrées et à sa terrasse, et jouit d'une vue extraordinaire. Elle se situe dans une rue du village et elle est environnée de maisons, mais le calme y est cependant parfait. Un restaurant réputé se trouve à côté, les premiers commerces à quelques kilomètres.
La maison est décorée de façon originale, très propre, tout est en parfait état.
Le propriétaire, Jean, est aux petits soins pour ses hôtes et nous a parfaitement renseignés avant notre arrivée.
Nous recherchions surtout le calme et le repos, mais pour qui veut faire des excursions, la région est extrêmement riche, et tout est à une demi-journée de voiture. Le village lui-même offre de très belles promenades sur ses sites médiévaux.
Une adresse à recommander, ou plutôt, à garder pour soi!
