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 people were charming, the food & wine superb. Santenay is a fantastic location for the "discover Burgundy" trip we had planned. The drives were all short, plus a whole day dedicated to Santenay itself. Your recommendation of Chagny Sunday market was spot-on. I don't think I've been to a better one, it enabled us to stock up on our first day, for most of the week. We tended to eat in a lot, apart from a few lovely lunches at Fixin and Montagny which were good. Slightly disappointed with Les Terriors in the village, but it was a busy evening. The wine tasting we enjoyed were the less formal places: Prosper Maufoux & Chateau de Santenay; Louis Picamelot & Domaine De L Renaissance (Rully); Domaine du Palais de Nuits (Nuits St George), to name a few. We learnt a lot during our holiday. A shame Domaine Jessiaume were too busy to let us taste. One thing we'd do on day one, not the last day, would be a trip to the Buxy Coop, exceptionally good value & quality. It was lovely to see the vineyards come alive as the harvest began whilst we were there. Your house is delightful, a fantastic location, lovely grounds & very homely. Well equipped with plenty of cutlery, plates etc. The dining area & lounge were perfect for us 5 adults. Beds were comfortable, the whole house was surprisingly warm esp as it was getting chilly in the evenings near the canal. The stove does heat things up quickly. The only slightly negative comments is that the showers were very small & a bit basic, I understand your comments ref French plumbing, but one decent size shower would be a good improvement. However the above small whinge did not stop us from having one of the best holidays we have had for years. You are very lucky to have such a charming home in France.
