A lovely cottage in a lovely part of France

5 of 5
We spent 6 days in the property in Fontaines. Michelle and Claude were welcoming , friendly and helpful.It was clear that they wanted to make sure we had a pleasant stay.They managed to strike the correct balance between making sure all was well without being intrusive. We were left apricots from the garden and it is obvious[from the visitors book]that they give produce from the garden to all their guests. The cottage is ideal for two people. It is clean and offers a high quality at a very reasonable price. It was very hot during our visit so the addition of air-conditioning both upstairs and down was a great feature. The garden is gorgeous [and huge] with several private seated areas where you can read or just sit and think.We wanted to visit the region to experience a stage of the Tour de France, concluding at Nuit St George. We had a great time and saw the winner at the finish line. However, Burgundy provided so much more - clean and picturesque scenery, beautiful wine and many historical buildings especially Chateaus. Château de Germolles is about 10 minutes away - the guide was fantastically informative & pleasant, giving us a full on enjoyable lecture linking England and Burgundy's history-is recommended. We didn't have nearly enough time to see everything the area has to offer.
