Absolutely wonderful

5 of 5
An outstanding property in a beautiful rural area. It's perfect for those who enjoy walking and cycling, visiting vineyards, eating good food and of course lounging by the pool. The owners Briar and Michel go out of their way to make you welcome and feel at home. The property is very clean and well presented in a lovely old characteristic farmhouse on the outskirts of a rural village with good shops to wander up to buy the morning croissants and baguette. The grounds are delightful with some stunning views towards Mount Blanc. There are plenty of bicycles at the property for guests to borrow at no cost, which allow you to explore the beautiful scenery via some well marked cycle routes. There are also plenty of marked walking trails in the area that take you into the heart of the Beaujolais often passing through the vineyards. There are some lovely picturesque villages nearby with plenty of options for somewhere to eat. I would definitely recommend this property, especially if you like the outdoor active lifestyle and, yes, we will go back.

Wonderful cottage in tranquil setting

5 of 5
Fantastic beautifully restored cottage - lovely owner who has developed these former farm buildings into a real home from home. Very well appointed kitchen and bathroom. Very spacious sleeping mezzanine and comfortable sitting room with satellite TV. Wonderful accommodation with the added bonus of a lovely swimming pool adjacent to cottage and main house.

Lovely cottage in peaceful countryside

5 of 5
This is a very nicely designed and spacious cottage with a beautiful garden, in a hamlet high above gentle countryside. We enjoyed cycling, walking and good wine-tasting! Plenty of interesting local places to visit - Cluny, Cormatin, Macon, Tournus - and a lovely place to return and relax. Lydia, the owner, is very friendly and helpful, and her dog Virgule came to say hello at the gate every evening! Our only suggestion would be clearer instructions for finding the cottage when you arrive in the hamlet as it is hard to spot the well which is the marker! We would absolutely recommend 'la petite maison' to others. Merci Lydia pour une bonne vacance! Diana and Andy
