LOVINGLY RESTORED FOR TWO - GREAT VIEW, PRIVATE POOL & GARDEN

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Braux - Les Hirondelles

Wondeful Getaway for Two People With Private Pool and Garden With a Great View.

Step into Les Hirondelles and you will immediately sense the tasteful mix of old and new that the owners of properties 6396 and 99874 have created with this their latest house.

Respect has been paid to original features whilst the work of local artisans and use of Farrow and Ball paints and traditional lime-washes have enhanced the freshness and appeal of this unique building.

The living room has a traditional flagstone floor and stone fireplace, painted beams, and an adjoining old fromagerie now clad in wood making an ideal spot for catching up on emails with a desk and internet access. One window looks onto the woods of the neighbouring château whilst the other looks towards the garden. The bathroom is on this level and contains a large walk in shower with handmade Provençal tiles. Just off the living room is a fully equipped kitchen with access to the garden, terrace and swimming pool. An oak staircase leads up to the mezzanine area and double bedroom

which is light and airy with magnificent views of the garden and the Auxois countryside.

The house is detached and has private off-road parking; there is a separate room with a washing machine, dryer and an extra fridge for all those cold drinks! The heat exchange system gives the luxury of warmth in the winter and air conditioning in the summer.

We both came to France one summer for a few weeks work and never looked back! We threw away office work in exchange for a life outdoors in one of the prime regions of Europe. Whilst there are many great regions to visit, it's always wonderful to return to Burgundy.

Bill & Jenny purchased this cottage in 2012

A very rare find for just two people. If we didn't have children and dogs, we'd live here ourselves!

A great house with a private pool and garden yet having wonderful views as well.

A perfect place to get away from it all!

  • 5 out of 5
The house was beautifully renovated, retaining much of its original character. The colour scheme and furnishings were all tastefully done and every holiday need was catered for, from the small, but perfectly formed swimming pool, to the two mountain bikes for cycling along the nearby canal path; not to mention the boules, board games, books and dvds. The surrounding countryside was scenic and unspoilt, dotted with picturesque villages reminiscent of the Cotswolds, yet with very few tourists - heavenly! The owners were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it for a lovely break away from it all, and we would certainly like to stay again!

Braux has about 200 inhabitants and is situated at an altitude of 340 metres just outside the Morvan natural park in the beautiful Auxois region of Burgundy. It’s the perfect place to relax or be active with walking, biking, rock climbing, golf and numerous visits to local sights.....

the village sits on the 120 km Bibracte hiking trail which runs from Alésia to Mont Beuvray, sections of which can easily be walked from the house by following the blue and yellow markers. The village also lies on the Canal de Bourgogne - a waterway which provides the vital link between the English channel and the Mediterranean; alongside the canal the new cycle path provides endless opportunities for exploring - maybe pedal the full 75 kms through the stunning Ouche valley to Dijon or simply bike a short way to the picturesque village of Marigny-le-Cahouet.

The nearest restaurant and café to the house is 4kms away in Pont Royal (accessible along the canal tow path) - get there early as the simple but good food attracts local artisans like bees to a honey pot after midday.

The undiscovered medieval gem of Semur-en-Auxois is a 10 minutes drive away and provides plenty of choice for bars, restaurants & shops.

Nearby places of interest include: Historical sites (13th C Abbaye de Fontenay, Vézelay Basilica, Hospice de Beaune); Chateaux (Commarin, Epoisses, Ancy-le-Franc, Bussy-Rabutin); Medieval towns & villages (Semur-en-Auxois, Flavigny, Châteauneuf-en-Auxois) ; Markets & shopping (Dijon, Beaune, Chablis, Noyers); Morvan National Park, golf & tennis nearby. 5 hour drive from Calais or Zeebrugge. 1 hour TGV train to Paris or Euro Disney direct from Montbard (30 minutes from the house).
