Fabulous location, beautiful and highly practical property

5 of 5
We had a fantastic week here in July. This small village is full of character and the house oozed charm. As well as being visually pleasing, the layout of the property and its fixtures and fittings is also highly practical. It is also extremely well provided for in terms of the equipment - plenty of pots and pans, crockery, a vacuum cleaner, even a dishwasher and washing machine, and much more (we have never had such a good property!). A lot of thought obviously went into the renovation; a particular feature is the 3-part patio door which pushes back into just 1 segment, opening up the main room onto the spacious terrace, which comes with a table, bench, chairs and a parasol. In addition there is bicycle store beneath the house which also housed our car's bicycle carrier. There is plenty to do within up to an hour's drive: villages to visit e.g. Vezelay, Semur; walking or cycling along the very well-maintained Burgundy Canal which passes just beyond nearby Pouillenay; take a tasting at one of the many local wine caves or cheese producers; visit the Roman remains at Alise/Alesia with its new visitor centre (then follow up by reading 'Asterix and the Chieftain's Shield' (Fr. 'Le Bouclier Arverne') which is based on the story of this site!). Also don't forget the restored Abbey de Fontenay with its chequered history. For supplies, Venarey Les Laumes is just a 10-minute drive away and has petrol stations, supermarkets, and the railway station Les Laumes-Alesia which has trains to Dijon once per hour, returning from Dijon up to 9pm (journey time half an hour, half what it takes in the car, and parking in the station car park is free all day!). Then when you have done all that, find a buddleia or lavender bush in full sunshine and site and identify the exotic butterfly visitors! By chance we found ourselves there on Bastille Day and so went to see a [free] local firework display. Benedicte, one of the owners, lives next door and although my French is not very extensive, I had no trouble understanding her as she takes care to speak clearly and without too much complex vocabulary for those of us hopeless Brits who don't speak much of anything else! She also speaks German. We would thoroughly recommend this property for a visit to Burgundy.

Juliette's house is wonderful, she has put a lot of time and effort into the furnishing and the decoration. The house has a really good vibe, is cool and stylish and the garden is lovely and fantastic for an evening watching the stars. Thank you, Juliette, for a wonderful stay
