Lovely county getaway!

5 of 5
Tucked away in the countryside, not far from a small French village, this accommodation was just what we wanted as a country escape with our 2 young girls. 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.

Tranquil location, spectacular view.

5 of 5
This is a charming cottage overlooking the valley. 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.

Beautiful home and very kind owner

5 of 5
My family spent 10 holiday days in those house And it was one of our best holiday. The owner was very kind and gave us many useful information about house, holiday activities, shopping and many other things available nearby. The house is really cosy, good equipped. It is excellent starting point for many holiday activities. We were interesting in cycling, wine tasting, cheese tasting, shopping markets. And there were many possibilities for that. if you are wine lover you must visit Burgundy. And this house is located near many small picturesque villages with really good wine. We enoyed during our holiday all time. Therefore I hope I will repeat our visit next year as well.
