The accommodation was in part of a beautifully restored old mill building alongside a small stream. My girls fell in love with the animals - ducks, chickens, goats and our course their lovely dog Diego. They were also kept entertained with the great play equipment. The apartment was very clean and quiet, and has everything you need for a comfortable stay, and the hosts were perfect - so welcoming and friendly. We weren't planning to do much touring, but managed to visit Beaumes les Messieurs, Louhans market, Chateau Chalon and other small towns within an hours drive from the gite. Everything was very quiet as it was mid winter, but charming none the less. I would definitely recommend this property to other families/couples wanting a quiet rural retreat.

The views from the terrace and pool area are spectacular. The property is very private and secluded. We would describe the property as rustic but comes complete with all mod cons that made the stay very comfortable. The owner was not able to greet us however we had a good line of communication and Nina's instructions were very clear and helpful. Nina contacted us a few days after we had left to ask how things were during our stay. Nearby places of interest are the towns of Cluny and Paray-Le-Monial. Excellent bicycle country if you like rolling terrain. Would definitely stay again if we found ourselves in this area.
