Semur-en-Auxois is a small welcoming fortress town in the Cote d'or, the heart of Burgundy. It sits on a rocky bluff, an extraordinarily beautiful town full of cobbled lanes, medieval gateways and ancient gardens cascading down to the River Armançon.

The inscription above the archway leading to the oldest part of the town was inscribed in 1552 and translates as 'The people of Semur take great pleasure in meeting strangers.' The people of Semur are just as welcoming today as they were the inscription was done all those years ago.

All roads lead to place Notre-Dame, a handsome square dominated by the large thirteenth-century church of Notre-Dame characterized by its huge entrance porch and the narrowness of its nave.

Further down the street in front of the church and off to the left you come to the four sturdy towers of Semur's once powerful castle, all that is left after the main walls of the fortress was dismantled in 1602. You can then explore the winding streets around the castle – there's scarcely a street in this lovely little town without some building of note – and then continue down to the delightful stretch of river between the Pont des Minimes and the Pont Joly, from where there's a dramatic view of the town.

Semur-en-Auxois is less than an hours drive from the beautiful and historical city Dijon, the capital city of Burgundy and from Beaune, famous for its wine and the enchanting Hospices de Beaune.

It is within easy reach of the auto route du Soleil (A6) and is only about 3 hours drive from Paris Charles de Gaulle

airport and the high-speed train (Eurostar/TGV) from London or Paris. .Then using SNCF you can travel from Paris to Montbard or Dijon. There are car hire facilities at Dijon Station e.g. National Alamo & Budget,

Parking - Parking 1 car only is provided in bay 4 at the back of the mill. Extra parking is on the street.

Parking - parking is provided for 1 car and must be used at all times - Bay 4 at the back of the mill. Additional parking is available on the street.

Stunning apartment set in a beautiful landscape.

  • 5 out of 5
The property was of an exceptional high standard, extremely comfortable and homely. The facilities within the property were well provided TV, DVD. Wifi iPod connections lovely kitchen. Bedrooms very comfortable and spacious. The property was very clean and the layout extremely well planned to provide a very distinctive character- very impressed. The views were so picturesque (for which ever season of the year) neighbours very helpful for local information. Pool was great for all the family in a lovely tranquil setting. The town of Semur en Auxois is a short walk and accessed in various ways along the river and up the steps through the rampart or up a short hill aside the rampart are two such routes. The owner has obviously taken a great deal of time to compose such a lovely home and were available to offer advice. We visited the local restaurants in Semur of which there were a great selection both for lunchtime dining and evening the two we liked were Le Saint Vernier and la Parenthese Two different styles the first very rustic - with local dishes and the 2nd more fine dining. We visited the local area and took in places such as Avallon. Fontenay Abbey (stunning architecture). Vezenay a lovely medievil village with a beautiful church and lovely quaint and picturesque buildings - with local wines available in a caves on the exit of the town. Flavigny is worth a visit with the local aniseed Bon bons and a short distance from Semur is Epoisses which has a lovely chateau in a walled keep with moat - worth a visits plus it famous for its soft "smelly cheese" used in a lot of local cookery
You need to be aware that you can't take a late lunch in a lot of the local restaurants they seem to stick rigidly to the opening times 12.00 - 14.00hrs but you soon get into the local time zones ....
A wonderful holiday with something for everyone would definitely recommend to friends and family

Thank you Anthea and David

Owner's Response: Dear Liz, Paddy and Annie,

It was so pleasant for both of us to read your kind and thoughtful comments on Semur and on our French home. We loved Semur from the moment we first found it twelve years ago but it is nice to have others feel exactly the same way and also to know that you appreciated both Semur and our place,

Many thanks,

Anthea and David

Location and Luxury

  • 5 out of 5
The property was very well appointed with fantastic views, a rural feel and yet the town so close by, with lots of restaurants in walking distance. Kids loved it as well, especially having their own en suites.

What a fantastic part of the country with lots of day trips and the people so friendly.

Simply amazing

  • 5 out of 5
We had a group of female friends wanting to re discover France for a holiday after one of them could no longer fly. We got the Eurostar and then the train to montbard. The house is set in a beautiful setting with a river outside. The town is on a hill but a few great little restaurants and nice places to sit outside for a drink. The neighbours are lovely and helped us with making reservations.
We all loved it so much we are booking for next year and can't wait to go back.

Lovely apartment in Semur-en-Auxois

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely stay at this apartment which was absolutely beautiful. The photos on the website do not do it justice. It is quite spacious with lots of windows and a lovely terrace overlooking the river. We enjoyed feeding the ducks! The apartment had everything we needed in the kitchen to create some wonderful meals and had a very comfortable living area. Two of the bedrooms were very large with a fair sized ensuite; the third bedroom with two twin beds was quite a bit smaller, but still an ok size. I would definitely recommend this apartment.

We did not have a car so walked up the hill into town a few times (about 12 minutes). There is lots to see just walking around the town. Some of us also used the bikes. There was a lovely Sunday morning market in the main downtown area selling cheese, fruits, vegetables, bread and a few other edibles. There are several nice shops and restaurants. We took the local bus to Dijon (had to walk into town to catch it) which took about an hour and didn't cost much more than a euro! We also did a separate trip to Beaune although it is a couple of stops past Dijon on the train. We took the bus to Montbard and then the train to Beaune . Both cities are worth seeing.

We found a newer restaurant called (Parentheses) in town which we really enjoyed - excellent food, plus there is a lady there that speaks very good English. We liked it so much we went there twice for dinner and once for lunch!

We really enjoyed our stay. I would definitely recommend this apartment and hope someday to return.

Wonderful home in a lovely medieval town

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I loved staying in this large property with modern amenities, great location in Semur and plenty of room for 6 people. The kitchen and set up as well as the bathrooms were very nice. I am an avid cook and loved prepping meals and sourcing local ingredients in the area and Dijon/Beaune. 45 minutes from fantastic wine in Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune. The pictures do not do the property or the location enough justice. Its really a lovely spot.

Stay at Moulin Brazillieres

  • 5 out of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Gite. Everything was as the photos and words on the web described, indeed if not better. The decor and fittings were outstanding and the apartment had the feel of being furnished for the owners to a very high standard. The setting was magical with the mill stream on view from the terrace where we ate all our meals. The town of Semur is very beautiful and is the perfect place to start an exploration of Burgundy.
We stay in many apartments and this one was clearly one of the best.

Welcome to our corner of Paradise, Semur-en-Auxois in the department of the Cote d'Or, Burgundy the region world famous for it's wonderful wines.

Moulin Brazillier is a sympathetically converted water mill and sits beneath the ramparts of a beautiful medieval town. Typical Burgundian restaurants and pubs are a short walk away. It boasts it's own shared swimming pool, 5 acres of secluded meadow and garden with its mill race running through. Our wing has a built in private terrace over looking the river, wildlife abounds.

Semur-en- Auxois, the historic capital of Auxois, has the charm of a medieval city with turrets and ramparts dating from 13th century. Legend says that Hercules built Semur at the time of his return to Spain. It is a 5 minute walk into the centre of the town where there are restaurants, delicatessens, shops, cafes and, most importantly, boulangeries for fresh croissants daily. For the energetic we provide bicycles!

Semur-en-Auxois is a small welcoming fortress town that sits on a rocky bluff, an extraordinarily beautiful town full of cobbled lanes, medieval gateways and ancient gardens cascading down to the river Armançon. There is a quaint old theatre, cinema, and museum featuring a library which has a fantastic collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed books. There is an open air market in the centre on Sunday mornings. There are also tennis courts in the town and, further afield, a golf course at the Chateaux de Chailly (Pouilly-en-Auxois), 25 minutes by car. Wine and cheese are produced locally. This is the land of rolling countryside and canals, perfect for cycling and hiking.

Visit - Flavingy, where the film 'Chocolat' (author Joanne Harris) was filmed and starred Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche. Beaune is a must for all wine lovers, visit the 'Hospice de Beaune' and travel along the 'Route de Vin' the vineyards are spectacular and especially interesting during the 'Vendage'. Chablis to the North is for world beating white wines. The Abbey of Fontenay, a former Cistercian abbey, is one of the oldest in Europe and a World Heritage site. Vézelay was a major medieval pilgrimage destination on the way to St Jacques de Compostella, the abbey claims to guard the relics of St. Mary Magdalen. Chateau Epoisses also famous for it's pungent and luscious cheese is only a short drive (or cycle) and there are numerous other interesting and fascinating chateaux nearby. Dijon, the capital, is essential to visit. The architecture is breathtaking, there are just so many beautiful buildings and old streets, follow the 'Owl Walk', and the market on Fridays is wonderful too. It is the friendliest provincial capital in France.

For Gourmands - Le Cheval Blanc, in Alise-Sainte-Reine, traditional and good and also not as heavy on the wallet as these! Restaurant Bernard Loiseau in Saulieu. Still evocative of three star chef ‘Bernard Loiseau’ is a 35 min drive but well worth the journey! Abbaye de la Bussière southwards has an exceptional restaurant in it’s cloisters. The abbey is surrounded by a lake and a botanical garden. The grounds! At these prices spend a day. Close by is Chateau Commarin and on the way visit one of the prettiest villages in the region, Châteauneuf-en-Auxois. An evening in the local chateau listening to Ravel was magical and the restaurants are not expensive.

This is our home, furnished with paintings and antiques, we love it and hope you will too! For a quiet night or a day by the pool there are well stocked libraries of dvds and books.
