Beautifully renovated country house in tranquil hamlet in northern Burgundy. Here you find the silence and beauty of an authentic French "campaign" area, with beautiful forests, clear streams, beautiful villages and many local hospitality.
The beautiful architecture in Burgundy, combined with the brilliant "pierres apparantes" ensure that almost every village in this region is a feast for the eyes. Observe the excellent Burgundy cuisine combined with the legendary wines and you are assured of a successful holiday in gastronomic terms.
The house is ideally situated between the Champagne region (north of the house) and the Cote de Nuits and Beaune (south of the house). In both directions is a guarantee for a fun day trip.
For the Champagne region is that it immediately begins when the house north of the border between the departments and the Cote D'Or (Burgundy) and Aube (Champagne) is exceeded. Here you will find innumerable small hidden villages where you can taste and buy Champagne, almost always at better prices and with a personalized reception than in the famous Champagne regions around Reims and Epernay.
For the Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune is that these 2 wine regions, the "gold coast" of Burgundy forms. You drive there from the house through a beautifully undulating landscape and can in Dijon or Beaune beautiful city tour and visit the weekly markets. Directly south of Beaune are the legendary wine villages of Pommard, Volnay, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet, Saint Aubin and Santenay. In these villages you can taste renowned wines and buy and often great lunch. Our personal preference restaurant "le terroir" in Santenay (high quality, reasonable prices), but also "Le Montrachet" Puligny-Montrachet (high quality, higher prices) is very worthwhile.
When you return to the tranquility of "Le Chatillonais" (the area where the house is) you will notice that the restaurants here a better price / quality offer and that you also in the immediate vicinity of the house (eg Belan-sur-Ource and Massingly) beautiful white and red Burgundies can taste and buy, always at a price considerably more sympathetic than the Cote de Nuits and Beaune.
The rest of the house can be alternated with beautiful walks (trails available in the home) or visit the numerous "vide grenier" who have a very authentic character. You can also go swimming in the lake of nature or Marcenay Riel les Eaux (both free) or an the new municipal pool of Chatillon sur Seine or Recey sur Ource. Slightly further away is the water park in Amphititre Montbard. For the kids (but mostly for the adults) is a visit to Nigloland always successful. Finally you can also visit the beautiful Abbeys of Val de Fontenay and Choue.
The house is surrounded by a flat plot of approx 3000m2 including an orchard with fruit trees, a beautiful lawn, a natural pond and a beautiful "courtyard" with a cozy seating area. The house offers a variety of luxury, including 3 new bathrooms, 3 toilets, 4 bedrooms, a spacious living room, separate TV room, a big farmers kitchen, satellite TV, Internet, DVD, Stereo and a multitude of books and games.
Important in the spring and autumn and in winter, is that the house has central heating in all rooms. Also located in the living room a beautiful fireplace, offering free disposal well seasoned wood, which soon spread soothing warmth.
Many time you will also spend under the "hood", the royal summer kitchen which is built onto the house and comprises a terrace above a large solid teak table with chairs and a brick built BBQ. Here you can enjoy indoor breakfast, lunch, dinner or just spend the day reading a book or playing games. Always in complete privacy overlooking the garden.
We rent this home based on the "all-inclusive" concept so that all additional costs (cleaning, disposal + clean sheets and towels and firewood) included in the rent. In addition, we use a very service-oriented local couple (Richard and Caroline Williams) who handle your reservation, home care and also during your stay available for any assistance.
This character house stands in an oasis of peace next to a Romanesque church from 1350 and provides a nice base for both Burgundy and the Champagne region. The area is characterized by beautiful nature, friendly people, good restaurants and several swimming areas, children's attractions and ancient abbeys and other historical buildings in the beautiful Burgundy architecture.
