Cosy cottage

5 of 5
Very well equipped, comfy cottage with everything you need for a super holiday. Great location near to The beautiful town of Cluny and also the Taize community. Great area for wine too! The setting of the cottage is beautiful and restful with the use of a lovely pool. We were given a warm welcome by Ellie and her dog Bunny! Lots to do in the area or just relax and enjoy the scenery. We hope to return, thanks Ellie for a lovely stay!

Well equipped and tranquil gite.

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. Our initial impression was that the gite was very remote, but actually, it was only a few minutes to the nearest town, and the situation of the gite meant that it was completely tranquil. Victoria has provided everything you need, including toilet paper and washing up liquid! The bed was very comfortable, and there was English TV for the evenings. We actually ate at the house frequently during our week as it was so pleasant. Fantastic walks from the door, and easy accessibility by car to Macon, Beaune and our favourite, Cluny. We had some excellent degustations and bought some what we hope will be good wines to be savoured over the year. We would happily return for more exploration of the area. The weather was also superb - wall to wall sunshine!
