Absolutely charming cottage for 2 people in the pretty village of Semur en Auxois, just a stones throw away from the river and town center.
There is ample parking just across the road, and a lovely lawned area to the side of the property on which to sit and eat lunch or dinner. There is a lovely metal bistro set of table and 2 chairs in the Kitchen to take outside, and we even put them outside the front door in the evening to catch the last of the sun before it set. The cottage has a lovely Kitchen with dining table and chairs, equipped with pans/cutlery/crockery etc. There is a coffee maker and the owner, Evelyne, who is just as charming as her lovely holiday cottage, very kindly supplies Coffee and filters. There is no kettle, but we just used a pan on the hob for hot water for cooking. There was also washing up liquid/cleaner etc, so no need to purchase those from the local supermarket. We cooked in the kitchen a few times, and had everything we needed. If you want to eat out, there are a number of lovely restaurants in the town, and Les Minimes just down the road from the cottage was very nice indeed. We also ate in Le Saint Vernier, which served very tasty reasonably priced food, the Saute of Poulet avec Epoisses was divine.
The bedroom and bathroom are very roomy and again there was shampoo/shower get etc in case you'd forgotten yours. The view from the bathroom window of the river below is wonderful.
The bedroom has a cupboard and clothes rail with hangers which was very useful. There was also a table and 2 arm chairs. Plug sockets were plentiful. The bed was a bit on the soft side for our taste, but everyone has different tastes when it comes to mattresses, so would suit others I'm sure!
The cottage is situated just under the Ramparts of the town and so a short but steep walk into town takes a couple of minutes. Be sure to go to the Tourist office and ask for the circuit map - follow the brass triangles on the pavements around the town to get a good idea of what's going on. We had a lovely time here, and would love to return one day.
Many thanks Evelyne.
Lucy’s hideaway was the most perfect accommodation for us and our young dog Lucy. The Bergundy area has much to offer from medieval villages, abbeys and chateaus. Sharon was so helpful and has a vast knowledge of the area. We enjoyed a memorable visit to Abbaye De La Bussiere... fantastic!!
Would highly recommend Lucy’s hideaway.
