The locals with whom we shared bread, wine and conversation made us feel SO welcome. It was a great area to explore but also the house was perfect to relax in. We would love to return.

Our family of 4 (2 children age 11 & 13) stayed in one of the 2 bedroom suites, which was very quiet. The owners Nina and Matthias could not have been more helpful, they made dinner reservations for us, advised us on where to cycle (we borrowed their bikes and had a fantastic bike ride along the tow path for 15km to lunch). The breakfast was excellent, traditionally French, but much more than just bread and jam that their website states. The children really enjoyed the swimming pool, but unfortunately we didn't have time to play tennis. Definitely recommended.

There is a good wi fi connection. What is not spelt out on the web site is that a "caution" (breakage deposit) of €200 plus a final cleaning charge of €30 is due on arrival. When travelling in France I use my card for most spending and only take a minimal amount of cash for smaller items so if I had known of this I would have budgeted accordingly. As it was Madame Ducerf waived the need fpr the caution, she probably thought that two oldies would not run riot. There is an reasonably sized Atac supermarket about 60/70 metres away which also sells fuel. The centre of town is only 10 minutes walk where everything is available. We ate out in the evenings as our view of self catering does not go beyond boiling eggs for breakfast and plating meat,pate,cheese and salads for lunch. There are good eating places available, if you go on Trip Advisor you will find my comments under the pseudonym wouldbegourmet. Cluny is interesting and this is is a first class place in which to stay to see it.
