The apartment is large, comfy, warm and well equipped. There is an excellent hypermarket in Saulieu which is ten minutes away by car, although the property is rural and quiet. The owner lives above and is helpful and friendly but also discrete and unfussy. The Morvan as a district proved stunningly beautiful in autumn. Vézelay is a splendid day out and the local brand of Burgundy wine is under-rated, i.e. cheap. The walks are clearly signed and attractive. We walked around one of the bigger lakes and also through the high woods towards the south. Thoroughly recommended.
We stayed at the Barn Owl for 2 weeks this summer. What a charming little barn this was! It was very tastefully decorated, with a generous sense of space and oodles of character. Juliette, the host and her cats were wonderful and made our stay very comfortable and welcoming.
Do not expect a great mobile or 4G or wifi data allowance - but this limitation really fades into insignificance once you soak in the beauty and character both inside and out.
The place is just a short drive from Saulieu for groceries and the odd crate of wine! There are several lakes in the region for a swim and barbecue.
The best thing about this region is the weather - it is not baking hot like some places in France. It was extremely pleasant (punctuated by rain, but that was ok too!) and it cooled down at night for a comfortable sleep.
We cannot wait to go back again.
