We both grew up in Europe -- Daniel in Holland and Juliet in England -- and we now live in Austin, Texas. Travelling in Europe has been a priority for our vacations, and a few years ago, we decided that we really enjoyed the Burgundy region of France for the authentic rural lifestyle, friendly people, beautiful countryside and fascinating places to visit. So we decided to buy a house in Burgundy!

Juliet Tapia purchased this house in 2011

When we made our decision to purchase a house in France, Maison Valois was the first house that we viewed, and we immediately decided it was perfect for us and anyone who shared our appreciation for the beauty and tranquility of the French countryside. The house is very comfortable and has a warm atmosphere that tells us that many generations have lived there happily. The village is friendly, safe and quiet, and is located within an easy 10 minute drive of a charming market town that provides guests with all the necessary amenities. We have enjoyed furnishing the house with a combination of authentic French antiques and contemporary comforts. We hope you enjoy your experience in Maison Valois!

Authentic Village Life

For the traveler seeking a genuine experience of "life in a small rural village in France" this is your place! It is comfortable and well equipped and located in an area surrounded by lovely villages, towns, farms and forests. Your neighbors are families of vintners, dairy farmers, foresters and craftsmen. The pace of life is slow and quiet. The owners are sincere and thoughtful in ways beyond imagination. And the property manager, Eric, lives just a few minutes away and is full of helpful information.

It is amazing how one can stumble upon the unexpected while traveling. Just a few kilometers from your base in Belan-sur-Ource, is the village of Essoyes, where P.A. Renoir spent most of his working life. Many of the neighboring villages are too small to support a bakery or market. Still, we were always able to find a restaurant with great food shared with the locals for lunch. A great restaurant is located in the Hotel du Parc in the town of Arc-en-Barrois, a beautiful little town worth a visit.

The nearest large town is Chatillon-sur-Seine where you will find everything you need to supply your visit, from butchers to bakeries, pharmacies to markets. Chatillon is an easy ten minute drive from Belan. Here can be found also, an interesting museum, church, restaurants and a very helpful tourist information center.

Now, I must ask a favor from anyone who visits this enchanted place. When you go to the market, stock up on carrots. There is a little Shetland Pony living next door who answers to the name of "Scotty". Actually, he answers to anything but, he (and I) prefer "Scotty". I promised him I would send carrots every chance I got. So, please don't let us down!

Beautiful house, beautiful landscape

I cannot recommend Maison Valois too highly. The house is gorgeous, and beautifully appointed. My wife and I went for two weeks, and wished only to stay longer. The house is situated in the Chatillionnais, which is significantly less crowded than, say, Beaune, which, to my eye, has become increasingly built for crowds and rote tourism. The Chatillionnais was, for us at least, a real revelation--strikingly beautiful--and this house is ideally situated to explore it in great detail. In fact, the house and the land are both so beautiful that we rarely wanted to leave the house or Belan-sur-ource itself--content as we were to cook, read, write and go for walks. That said, you are not that far from any part of the Burgandy region. The owner, Juliet, is very accessible, friendly, and unusually helpful. An added feature of this place is that it is in the heart of Cremant country, which means gorgeous sparkling wine that genuinely rivals Champagne in its best instances (there are many instances), and are very inexpensive. Last, the photos on the website represent the house very well. I was not in the least bit disappointed. We plan to return.

Perfect family house in Burgundy

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 16-May-2013

This is a lovely house in a very small village in Burgundy and perfect for wine and cheese lovers as the Champagne tasting route is nearby and it is nestled in the Cremant area and an hour from the best red Burgundy wines. The house is very comfortable and well equipped and there are loads of outdoor options on offer. A good way to get to know "La France Profonde". Juliet is very solicitous which ensures that all goes well during the stay and the people in the village are very friendly. Definitely a "vacation keeper!"

What a charming house in a beautiful part of the world. This was my wife's and my first trip to France and we wanted to immerse ourselves in the French culture without the congestion and expense of a week in Paris. This place turned out to be the perfect option as it is in a peaceful little village but has access to modern amenities and is in proximity to an abundance of sightseeing.

The owners have done a wonderful job updating the house while still maintaining the charm and history one would expect. It also has important things such as local tour books and internet, critical for gathering information on local attractions and keeping in touch with the world. For experienced cooks such as ourselves who's trip essentially revolved around food (French grocery stores are a real treat), the kitchen is spacious and stocked with pretty much anything one could need.

We didn't spend much time roaming outside due to our visit being in the rainy spring, but the owners have also provided a grill, outdoor sitting areas, and even bikes to roam the village with. Bring the kids...they will have lots to do with everything provided.

Lastly, the owners were very helpful throughout the entire process and a pleasure to work with. Don't hesitate to consider this house as part of your travel plans, I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay and great base for touring all things Burgundy!

An enchanted escape to the French countryside

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 01-Dec-2012
  • Date of Stay: Nov 2012
We had a sudden change of vacation plans which gave us 3 days in France with nowhere to stay. At the last second (literally the day of our flight) we booked our stay at this lovely home. We are a family of 5 with three girls 1, 4, and 6. We were a little nervous about the drive from Charles De Gaulle airport but it went by in a flash (just make sure your rental car has GPS). Driving through the charming French countryside was amazing, going through gorgeous fields, rolling hills, and quaint small villages. We followed Juliet's instructions and easily found the house and parked in the gated courtyard. Eric, the caretaker left us a delightful gift basket to welcome our stay. He also helped setup a crib and mattress for our 1 year old. The house was exactly what we hoped for, and plenty big for a family of 5 or even larger. The beds were very comfortable and the furnishings beautiful with all the comforts of home. The home is quietly setback from the street with a backyard that is wide open to the country, literally feels like you are in the middle of a vineyard. The location is perfect for short 30 minute trip to lots of attractions, we found ourselves visiting castles, museums, and local shopping markets. If you are looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city, and want to enjoy authentic French country .... then this is the place to book!

The house is located in an authentic and characterful village on the Route de Cremant in the Cote d'Or region of Burgundy. Strolling around the village, you will see a church that is on the list of Historical Monuments of France, a chateau, an ancient 'lavoir' (wash house), a tree-lined river, vineyards and a winery that produces and sells Cremant, the sparkling white wine of Burgundy. The house is equipped with 5 bicycles, so feel free to cycle into the gently rolling countryside outside the village.

At a short 10 minute drive is the charming market town of Chatillon sur Seine, where you will find all the amenities that you need, including a bustling weekly market, large grocery stores, restaurants, a cinema and lots of little shops and businesses. Chatillon was a residence of the early dukes of Burgundy and has a beautiful 10th century church, interesting walks and historical streets and houses.

Many fascinating and beautiful sites are within an easy drive of the house, including the medieval towns of Dijon and Semur en Auxois, the ancient pilgrim destination of Vezelay, the 12th century Fontenay Abbey, and numerous chateaux and picturesque villages. And, of course, you are very well located for exploring the vineyards of the area, since you can tour the wine roads of the Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune to the south and the area of Champagne a few miles to the north of the house.

The area has many natural attractions, such as the Parc du Morvan, where you can hike, bike or picnic. Of course, you may wish to spend your days relaxing at the house, cooking a fine dinner and watching the star-studded night sky. There is so much to do and see in this wonderful area of France!
