Maison Valois is a charming stone-built village house that has architectural characteristics typical of this area. Located in a private gated courtyard on a quiet village street, the house has three bedrooms, a large living area with fireplace, a dining area that looks across the fields and vineyards, and a large garden where you can enjoy the spectacular views. The house is enhanced by antique furniture that is from the region. The kitchen is large, airy and stocked with all the equipment you need to create your meals made with ingredients that you purchased at the market or at one of the many excellent grocery stores in the local area. There is a good, casual restaurant a few steps from the house, where grilled meats, pizzas and salads are the specialty - a must try! Recent renovations and updated decor will make your stay memorable while you relax in this authentic Burgundy country house.
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!
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!
