Gîte Le Cochon Volant

Gîte le Cochon Volant is a large holiday farm on the highest point of the village of Fin, near the "Route du Morvan". The house has central heating, an authentic kitchen with modern facilities and a spacious dining/living room with a large fireplace. Characteristic are the one meter thick walls (cool in summers), oak beams and original tiled floors. There's plenty of space, whether it be in the courtyard or on the large garden terrace under the pergola of blue Wisteria.
Relax with a picnic overlooking the rolling hills. Rummage the numerous 'vide greniers' during the summer months in search of that perfect souvenir in local villages. Not to mention the reknown Burgundian gastronomy. And view art & culture in ancient Vézelay, one of the starting points for the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. For those who prefer a bit more action, there's canoe trips on the beautiful river 'La Cure' (also with children from 4 y.o.), horse riding, rafting and mountain biking in the Morvan National Park. Or climbing in ' The Adventure Forest'. And more water sports Water incl. sailing, windsurfing and canoeing on the numerous lakes of the Morvan. And for a day of rest, there's WiFi back at the Gîte.

We have been the proud owners of this large holiday farm for 25 years. In 1998, together with a friendly French couple, we celebrated a large Dutch / French wedding party here. The guests ate at long, white-covered tables in the large open barn and the band played in a typical French party tent. Over the years, we have had wonderful holidays in Le Cochon with our children, family and friends, both in summer and in the beautiful cold winters.

July 2017. Nice house in a beautiful setting! The kids loved the tricycles, scooters completely awesome !! Often a tricycle race held. The hammock and the big tub were also favorites. During the few rainy days we played a lot of games (Monopoly in French) and the DVDs were a godsend!
Trips we liked very much were:
- Pedal boats at Lac des Settons
- Grottes d'Arcy
- Avallon
- Vézelay: shopping street and church + view
- the lake in Lormes, also a good baker in the village
- Dinopark Cardoland
Greetings, N, N, C & S, the Netherlands

August 2017. Perfect stay in your beautiful home! With 4 adults and 2 kids there was enough space and always a nice place to find - rain or shine! On the night of my 38th birthday we saw 8 shooting stars from the sun loungers in the garden. From your house we have our house hunting in the region and we drive away today with at least 1 serious 'potential'. It was sometimes fire weather and sometimes BBQ weather so we got a lot out of the wood supply. Many thanks for that!

August 2017. What a beautiful week chin the Morvan! BBQ, fire bowl, fun outings, .. The kids who have amused themselves, the cows bath has done its job! ;). With regret in the heart we drive back to Antwerp, but we will cherish this week!

September 2017. We had two wonderful weeks here in Fin, which sometimes literally looked like the end of the world. Wonderfully quiet, devoid of (almost) everything. The Vézelay wine (white) tastes perfect with the crottins of the market in Clamecy. Occasionally we took the trouble to drive a bit further; Auxerre, Nevers. Both are pretty nice cities but in the end the small local villages still 'win' it. So we often 'buried' with the local wine, cheeses and beef, and then enjoyed in and around the house.
Au revoir! E & J, the Netherlands

Wat een fijne plek en wat een heerlijk huis!!! De afgelopen twee weken hebben we elke dag de regio wat beter leren kennen. Daarbij kwamen we tot de conclusie dat Le Cochon Volant toch wel op een hele mooie en ideale plek ligt. Het kasteel van Bazoches, de markt in Clamecy en natuurlijk Cardo Land: allemaal de moeite waard. En natuurlijk alle dorpjes in de regio, de ene nog pittoresker dan de ander.
In het huis hebben we vooral genoten van de prachtige, authentieke inrichting. Mooie vloeren, oude lampen, aan elk detail is aandacht besteed. Daardoor voelden wij ons extra welkom in dit met liefde ingerichte huis.
Wat ook heel fijn was: een complete keuken met alle keukenapparatuur.
De kinderen hebben eindeloos buiten gespeeld: torretjes zoeken, op "avontuur" in de schuren en de achtertuin. En natuurlijk zwemmen en spetteren in het koeien-zwembad.
Ontzettend bedankt voor jullie gastvrijheid! (en de welkomst-mand met lekkers bij aankomst).

We boeken altijd een huisje voor 1 week, en dit is de eerste keer dat het echt veel te kort was en we nog lang niet weg willen. We hebben vooral erg genoten van het heerlijke terras, de vuurschaal en het zitten in de avondzon.
Heel erg bedankt voor de goede uitgaanstips: we hebben gewandeld, met een kano over de Cure gevaren en paard gereden door het bos bij de manege in Montillot. Ook Vézelay was beslist de moeite van het bezoeken waard. Maar het beste was toch het lekker niets doen hier op het terras en tot rust komen!
We zullen dit huis zeker aanbevelen bij familie en vrienden!
Groet, H, N, M en A, Nederland

Gîte Le Cochon Volant heeft ons verrast! We huren al jaren 'n huis maar nog nooit was "ons" huis zo smaakvol ingericht en afgewerkt.
Iedere dag kan je 'n nieuw detail ontdekken. We hadden mazzal met 'n volle week zon en hebben regelmatig vertoeft in de heerlijke tuin.
Vézelay vonden we erg de moeite waard!
'n Bootje huren om te varen op de Nivernais is niet super spectaculair maar toch 'n leuk uitstapje. Zwemmen in het meer is als afwisseling van 'n duik in het koeienbad ook heerlijk. Genoten dus!
Groeten, A, M, R, C, M, B, B, F en L, Nederland

Super nice place here. We had a good time. For the children there was so much to do, really great! We love good food and drink and the kitchen was fantastic. Everything is there. But a lot of flies, perhaps that is why so many fly swatters :). Highly recommended for an outing is the castle of Bazoches, literally around the corner! We have enjoyed!
Thank you and au revoir.
B, M & children, Netherlands

We agree fully with the above!
What a lovely house! What a neat place! What looked after all!
What a great atmosphere! We can totally relax & enjoy!
And our daughter 22 months enjoyed double with us!
Merci beaucoup!

    Wij hebben een heerlijke nazomer-vakantie gehad in Le Cochon. We hebben veel en graag gebruik gemaakt van de enorme open haard en van de tuin die aan twee kanten van het huis veel ruimte biedt. Loop je even een stukje verder wordt je meteen beloond met prachtige uitzichten. Hier op het platteland in het noorden van de Morvan kan je genieten van de stilte en de ruimte.
    In de nabije omgeving zijn authentieke plaatsjes te vinden, zonder toeristische prullaria. Je kan je lekker onderdompelen in het Franse leven. De keuken is van alle gemakken voorzien; alleen nog wat inkopen doen op de zaterdagse markt of de boulanger en klaar ben je. Of anders op de barbecue in de tuin natuurlijk. Kortom: genoten!

    Geweldige week gehad in dit prachtige huis. Je ziet dat de eigenaren het met veel liefde hebben opgeknapt met oog voor detail. Wij voelden ons hier meteen thuis. Ook de streek is prachtig en rustgevend. Het huis ligt net iets buiten de morvan, maar de natuur en vergezichten zijn hier nog net zo prachtig. Een aanrader dus.

  • Cathelijn Bogaer, with the family. Gave on an average of 8.4  

    Prachtig Frans huis dat heel stijlvol is ingericht. Fijne badkamer en mooie nieuwe keuken. Veel ruimte in en rondom het huis. Rustig gelegen in mooie omgeving. Pitoreske dorpjes en mooie meren in de buurt.
