A real 'retreat' on the banks of the River Armancon, nestled beneath the ramparts of the medieval town of Semur en Auxois, this former fisherman’s cottage has been restored with style by Patricia and local craftsman. Oak, local stone & family antiques add to the character and charm of this ‘petite maison’.
Once you walk through the little red garden gate, the ‘petite maison’ and its setting capture your imagination with breath taking views of the river and beyond. Perfect romantic getaway. Great for relaxing and be away from it all. NEW WiFi connection!.. So you are not completely disconnected!
Open plan kitchen, dining and living space with separate shower room & WC make up the ground floor accommodation leading to the riverside terrace - perfect for enjoying BBQ and candlelight dining under the stars.
Overhead is the cosy mezzanine bedroom accessed by a sturdy hand crafted oak loft ladder. The house is well insulated and suitable for winter breaks.

We have enjoyed the stay in your cottage. But indeed, the weather was really far from perfect so we could not enjoy the region a much as we had planned to in tems of outdoor activities. We shoul come back in spring or summer. The cottage is really nice - But would have been nice to use the garden.

I fell in love with the cottage as a child, the cottage was a family property. The house at the time was a fishermen's cottage with stone floor, no water nor electricity. I decided to renovate it and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
Its location gives you the best of both worlds, calm & tranquillity amongst the natural surroundings on the terrace or in the garden but, within a two minute walk you can be in the centre of town with all the local activity, weekly market, shops, cafes and restaurants etc.
Semur itself is a favoured and well positioned destination of many visiting the region. This medieval town is ideally set between Chablis to the North and Beaune & Dijon to the South with local Vineyards of Auxois close by, providing a perfect location for the wine & food lover. Historical villages and sites are also in abundance and within easy reach - Fontenay Abbey, Flavigny, Bussy Rabutin, Les Forges de Buffon, Vezelay, Epoisse, Chablis, Wine route. Plenty of local walks to discover the Flora and Fauna. Special visitors come in the garden - Ducks and heron.
