House is fully featured, comfortable and has been modernised without losing its character. It is on the outskirts of a charming little village called Thury, with cows in nearly every field setting off the pretty landscape. About 800m away is the village shop that sells essentials (not open on Mondays) and a traditional, honest to goodness restaurant called the Thurysien that serves home-cooked food with a smile. This is not a tourist village but it's all the better for it. You'll get a real taste of rural living in Burgundy in glorious tranquility - a far cry from the hustle and bustle of England's towns and cities. For more lively towns there is Beaune and Autun about 25km away, and of course Dijon at about 60km. The smaller towns of Chateauneuf and Nolay are essential visits too, with the former offering some jaw-dropping views. And of course, how could I forget the glorious vineyards around Pommard that were ripe for cultivation at the time of our visit. Last of all, if you have kids the forest of Givry offers a fantastic treetop adventure park at very reasonable prices. The proprietors Benoit and Caroline were very friendly and attentive, answering questions promptly and sending plenty of information ahead of our visit. My father is disabled and walks with a rollator and the house was a great fit. A couple of steps either side of the living area joining bedrooms and kitchen were no hassle for him. Thanks also to Nathalie who was equally pleasant. Highly recommended.

                                                                                                      The cottage corresponded precisely to the description, although words do not do justice to the surroundings. The cottage is situated in a hamlet of a handful of homes, reasonably distant from traffic without being too isolated. The garden, planted generously with geraniums and herbs, and graced with apple and mirabelle plum trees looks out over rolling green hills interspersed with vines, copses, grazing land, a whole agricultural panorama. To be clear, this was very important to us, a place to withdraw from hectic city centre life. I do not mean to detract from the interior, which is correctly appointed and equipped, comfortable and not fussy. The owners have been thoughtful in providing instructions and advice to facilitate your arrival, pointing up all the local facilities necessary or desirable, as well as a wide selection of tourist information. Located between the Burgundy region and the Morvan nature reserve, there is plenty of choice for visits and activities in striking distance, the immediate vicinity is equally worth ambling around, and of course you could just lounge around on a sunny day in that gorgeous garden, rounding off the day with a barbecue and, if the sky remains clear (it did for us most nights) staring into the star studded sky in a way that the city does not allow. We like to visit different places, but I wouldn't be surprised if we returned here.
