Our children loved staying here and spending time in the huge garden. My husband and I were able to relax and, once the children were in bed, we enjoyed the peace and tranquility provided by such a beautiful setting. The accommodation itself far exceeded our expectations and was incredibly welcoming for children. My eldest child particularly enjoyed the opportunity to spend time with the ponies and I'm sure will have lasting memories of her evening rides. In fact, thank you Anne for helping us as a family create some really special and lifelong memories and we're looking forward to returning in the future to create some more!

We first rented in 1999 and have now rented a total of 9 times. However, there had been a gap of 10 years before we returned in June 2017. We were delighted to find that the only changes were improvements- a new oven, excellent wifi and new tv system all contributed to another excellent experience at Les Garruches. The proximity of Beaune and easy access to the wineries and sights of the southern Côte de Beaune and the quiet location next to the canal are the highlights of this rustic and delightful property. The next door neighbors look after the house so help is at hand for information and guidance on the area. We have recommended Les Garruches to others and will certainly be back!
