Les Ventres Bleus


Lac de Settons is a reservoir in the middle of the Morvan and was built in 1861 to enable the transport of wood via the rivers to Paris. Now it attracts many tourists in the summer when the weather is nice and there are plenty of opportunities for all kinds of water sports. In the winter the lake is an oasis of peace.

La Coupe Lyonnet is a small hamlet and is approximately 3 km. distance from Lac de Settons. The hamlet consists of 10 houses, including "Ventres Bleus".

The farm is approximately 150 years old.
It consists of living area, barn, stable. Everything in fairly original condition, but where the grain loft used to be, the bedrooms are now.

"Ventres Bleus" is old, rural and surrounded by nature.
Nature often comes in especially in the conservatory and barn.
As a climbing / crawling plant, but also as a small rod.

On the ground floor are the living room with conservatory and the kitchen. Cooking is done on gas or electrically. Half of the upper floor consists of an open attic, the rest consists of 2 bedrooms and a small bathroom. In the bathroom there is a shower, sink and toilet. An electric boiler provides hot water.

Depending on the desired privacy, 6 - 8 people can easily sleep. Duvets, pillows and blankets are available. Please bring pillowcases and sheets yourself. For heating you are dependent on 2 wood stoves and the tiled floor in the kitchen has underfloor heating. Wood is present, but there is no escaping any chopping or sawing work.

In the kitchen there is a fridge and a 4-burner stove. Cooking is done on a butane gas bottle and possibly electrically. The oven is electric. And there is a microwave. An electric boiler provides hot water in the kitchen and bathroom.

Small supermarkets can be found in Moux, Montsauche and Planchez; all about 8-10 km away. Large supermarkets are available in Saulieu, Autun or Chateau Chinon (all +/- 25 km). For fresh bread you can go to Moux, Montsauche or Planchez from 7 am. A baker comes by four days a week, but he or she must know that there are residents.

There is also a washing machine. There are 5 mountain bikes in the shed and there is an inflatable boat that can be used if any leaks are stuck. A sailboat is present; use it after consultation. There is also a table tennis table in the shed. In the house there are various maps of the area and there is a lot of information for the tourist. There are no big cities in the Morvan, but just outside the park there are cities that are definitely worth a visit: Autun, Avallon, Vezeley.

More than 15 years ago we started a search in the Morvan with friends. That search ended in La Coupe Lyonnet at this farm; because of the original architectural style and because of its location at the Lac de Settons. Over the years we have adjusted some things, but the traditional character has certainly been retained. We spend most vacations here ourselves. In winter by the wood stove, in summer by the lake and then we also scoured all the flea markets.
