We enjoyed our stay in Dancevoir. The Bar/Tabac has a shop for bread and croissant in the mornings and a good supermarket is only 10 mins or so away. We visited Dijon, Chaumont and Troyes which we have had overnight stays at in transit in previous holidays so it was good to have time to explore.
There are some nice walks around the village on quiet roads and paths but my grand daughter may not have appreciated them as much with the intention to get her to sleep!
An excellent and truly relaxing two weeks in River Cottage, in the pretty village of Boudreville in Northern Burgundy. The cottage is comfortable and modern whilst retaining the traditional features that really made us feel that we were somewhere unique. We loved the extensive gardens and grounds surrounding the cottage, in particular the river running alongside the property. It gave our girls their first (very memorable!) first experience of 'wild' swimming - just great. Paul and Julie were exceptionally welcoming and helpful hosts, pointing us in the direction of things to do, local walks and beauty spots and places to go that fitted our interests. The cottage is in easy reach of historic cities like Dijon and Troyes, but my favourites were the beautiful, world heritage Abbey de Fontenay and the understated, but incredibly pretty village of Flavigny sur Ozerain (where the film 'Chocolat' was filmed). The boulangerie in Montaigne was an easy cycle away, so we were well supplied with croissants, fresh baguettes and amazing pain au raisin most mornings. We would not hesitate to recommend River Cottage to families wanting a relaxing (or active!) holiday, in a beautiful area with access to many cultural and historic sites. A lovely, lovely holiday.
