                                                              Picturesque location, peaceful comfortable holiday

                                                              We stayed at Gîte de Thivelle in for one week in mid-April with our two children, aged 3 and 7 and had a truly wonderful and relaxing time. The village of Cussy-en-Morvan is quaint and very quiet and the position of the house relative to the village is ideal for having a proper get-away-from-it-all. Sheep and horses were our only close neighbours! The house was very comfortable, clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The pictures provided are very accurate, and if anything, it was better in person. A selection of toys, books, games and DVD's was a much appreciated bonus! The house is heated with two wood-stoves which served to make the house warm and cozy despite quite cold nighttime temperatures that week. Although we were happy to mostly explore the local area by foot, the house is well positioned to explore many of Burgundy's attractions by car. We did make the trip to Vézelay and recommend it highly. Beaune and Autun, which we have been to on previous trips, are very accessible by car from Cussy and are also well worth seeing. Contact with the owner was very straightforward and he was always very prompt in responding to e-mails. Instructions for the house and detailed suggestions for eating and sightseeing were provided in advance and we had no troubles once we were there. In short, we would like to thank Mr. Brox for the use of his lovely home. It would be our great pleasure to return for another stay in the future!

                                                              An excellent choice for a rural retreat

                                                              This was "home from home" for us being clean, spacious and comfortable. It was so nice to have such a well equipped kitchen. Breakfast outside with the view to enjoy made a wonderful start to the day. The bed was very comfortable and the roomy bathroom was supplied with really hot water. Beside all the brochures in the lounge, Victoria took the time to answer our questions about which places would be good to visit. We found this very helpful. Thank you, Victoria, for paying such attention to detail in your cottage which made our holiday so enjoyable. We will certainly recommend this holiday cottage to our friends .

                                                              We had a warm welcome of Colette which is the concierge. She is really great! We enjoyed her support as well as her cooking very much! We stayed in La Forge which is a nice house. The only thing is that the living room, diningroom and kitchen is in one room so that there is not so much space with two children. We had perfect weather so that anyway we were most of the time outside. We enjoyed the quiteness and surrounding very much!
