CHARMING COTTAGE, NEAR TO TAIZE,CLUNY & MACON, WITH 12M POOL, SLEEPS MAXIMUM 4

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Cluny - La Dependance

Fully equipped self catering cottage that can sleep a maximum of 4 people

An attractive cottage in a very peaceful rural area not far from the historic town of Cluny and the religious village of Taize. A small village a mile away provides most basic needs.

The cottage enjoys a very peaceful location with panoramic views and is very private . The 12m swimming pool is a bonus for summer users (but not heated). Extra rooms are available in the main house opposite - please ask for a price and details.

A former farm building the cottage has a king sized bed on a mezzanine floor with large fitted cupboards. Downstairs is a fully equipped kitchen with all mod cons. A passage with fitted cupboards houses the fridge and washing machine amongst other things, and the adjacent bathroom has both bath and separate shower, as well as WC and washbasin.

Beyond is the living room, with folding patio doors and an enormous old bread oven (not in use !). The sofa doubles up as a very comfortable double bed. There is a music centre and a TV.

Extra accommodation may be available: A double bedded bedroom and a twin bedded bedroom are available as well in the main house from June onwards giving an additional 4 beds if needed.

Please take a look at our own website www.lafontaine71250.co.uk

BRILLIANT WEEK DESPITE THE WEATHER!

  • 5 out of 5
Had a brilliant week in this lovely house despite the 'rather naughty' weather for the time of year.
Lots of rain and overcast skies didn't dampen our enjoyment of the house, gardens and pool.
Very comfortable house with everything you could need. The photos do not do it justice although they are good. The pool is a delight and one of the nicest we have ever been lucky enough to enjoy.
Short drive to attractive Cluny with the added advantage of a very new and well stocked Intermarche supermarket on the outskirts.
Ideal area for visiting chateaux.
We visited and enjoyed nearby Pierreclos and Chateau Digoine.
As everyone says Richard and Birgit are charming and unobtrusive hosts.Thank you to both for a lovely, relaxing week. We can't wait to return.

WONDERFUL PLACE, PEACEFUL AND PRIVATE

  • 5 out of 5
A lovely restored house, with everything you could wish for. The owner, Richard, went out of his way to make our holiday perfect. When my husband talked with him about star gazing and told him he had forgotten binoculars, Richard provided us with two and some books about the subject. At arrival, there was a bottle of champaign, because Richard had noticed we had just got married. He was so attentive and thoughtful, and was at the same time very careful not to disturb us or intrude. The pool was fantastic as well, all to ourselves, and a great plus with the Summer heat. We picked fresh fruit and vegetables from the garden. Really, it is a little paradise. If you are looking for a private and peaceful place, with all mod cons and great views, we really advise this place. Lovely location as well by the way, with great opportunities for sightseeing and visiting local markets.

GREAT RELAXING HOLIDAY

  • 5 out of 5
Excellent barn conversion with with all mod cons. Clean, fresh and airy.
Richard was very helpful without being over attentive. The lovely big pool was certainly the icing on the cake. We had the place to ourselves and evenings spent having dinner on the lawn just looking at the views will be a lovely memory in years to come.

FANTASTIC TWO WEEKS IN CLUNY

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I spent two weeks in July with our two children in this wonderful house near Cluny. We all had a great time. The house, pool, garden etc. were fantastic and the owner, Richard, is the most friendly and helpful host. Just outside the property is some of the most beautiful scenery in Burgundy. This part of France offers lots to do and enjoy for both children and adults. Restaurants, shops and supermarkets are within easy reach. We cannot recommend this house enough and would love to return sometime.

A LOVELY COTTAGE IN BURGUNDY

  • 5 out of 5
I'm writing this review a little late as I couldn't remember the name of the website that I booked it through! We stayed at this cottage in May 2012 for just under a week and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Richard (the owner) was very friendly and made himself available to answer any questions. The cottage itself is well appointed - with everything you need to make meals, drink lovely wine and relax. The pictures on this site make the cottage look smaller than it is - we were very surprised by how large the mezzanine bedroom was. The cottage is located a short drive away from Cluny which has everything you need. The weather wasn't warm enough for us to use the pool, but it looked nice and would come in handy during the warmer summer months. We'd love to stay here again if we were ever back in France. Thanks for being such a good host Richard and best of luck with the ongoing renovations of the main house!

The historic towns of Cluny and Taize are nearby, with Macon, Beaune and Dijon within easy distance. Being one of the most famous wine regions in France there are a number of 'wine routes' discovering the delights of the grape. There are plenty of activities around to suit all ages from sight seeing to roller skating down the 90k length of the old disused train track that runs through the stunning Burgundy countryside. There are many famous Chateaux in the area with Cormartin being one of the closest.

More details on our own website http://www.lafontaine71250.co.uk/

Other Activities: There are numerous historical sites to see and a tour of the wine region is a must !
