Jane and Jim welcome you to their well appointed gîte for up to four people which has been newly renovated and converted from a small farmhouse. It has been designed to provide you with an exceptional light and airy home from home in which to enjoy your relaxing holiday in the beautiful Burgundian countryside.
Rural Burgundy, renowned for its good food, is an ideal spot for a relaxing holiday. Get away from it all and charge your batteries beside our superb heated pool. Indulge in some quality lounger time, reading a book and sipping a glass of wine which you have bought from one of the many small producers nearby.
Jane and Jim Williamson moved to live permanently in the Clunysois in 2009, from an another area of outstanding natural beauty, the English Cotswolds. We had been looking for a holiday home, which would then be our permanent home after Jim had retired from his job as an independent IT systems and Business Consultant.
We undertook a major renovation project to update our own house and create a special gite for friends and family to use and to let out to people who appreciate this area and are looking for a restful holiday.
As you can see in the pictures of the work being undertaken in the gallery, we lived in a builders yard for a year!.
Jim has worked very hard on the vegetable garden and has created an entirely new orchard, in which he keeps the chickens.
We love living here, it is a special place and we have made very good friends and been accepted into the local community.
Living here we are between our two daughters, one who lives in Munich and the other in Bury St Edmunds.
We offer a warm welcome to you.
Jim and Jane Williamson purchased this house in 2005

We had such à relaxing time during our stay. It started upon arrival, a beautiful garden and a stunning view and the beautiful pool to top it off.
Than we discovered the gîte which was beautifully decorated and contained everything we would need for our stay, and the fridge filled with jam, wine, eggs from the garden... We also really enjoyed the fact that the gîte had all the basic things which we would need during our stay going from tea, coffee, showergel .... And also bed sheets, shower and pool towels...this is a real plus as all this takes a lot of space in the car if you need to bring it all !
The cooling system is also a real plus.
And we mostly enjoyed the quiet and rural aspect of the gite, Jim and Jane are very discreet but aways there when needed. Our boys even got to go and see the hens and collect their eggs, as well as pick blueblerries and rasberries from their yard. The children loved it.
I would definitly recommend this gite for anyone who is looking for a peaceful place to stay because this is really what you get by all means at les volets bleus: tranquility.
And if you décide to leave the gîte to discover the area there are plenty of things to do. The children enjoyed the varions castels and the rope parl very near by as well as a helicopter ride ! Great fun in Burgundy ! Thank you Jim and Jane.
Les Volets Bleus is a very well equipped and beautiful gite. Jim and Jane have clearly put a lot of thought and planning into making the accommodation have every item you need for the practical side of life, but the comfort factor too. We even had fresh flowers in the accommodation which was a lovely touch.
The gite was spotlessly clean and the grounds well maintained. The views were memorable. Swimming in the pool early in the evening overlooking the rolling countryside was so relaxing.
We were very well looked after by Jim and Jane. The evening meal (optional) on arrival after the drive down from the channel tunnel did not disappoint. The freshly laid eggs and local bakery produce in our welcome hamper were delicious.
If you are interested in staying in this region of France, we certainly recommend this accommodation. It is important to have transport, but the distances to travel to get to shops and restaurants are not too great.
Thank you for a lovely week in Burgundy, Gill & Brian.
We had such a pleasant time staying at this enchanting Gite! Jim and Jane are very warm and hospitable hosts. It was really nice to escape into the country side, where rolling hills are visible and fresh lavender grow. The Gite was impeccably clean, and had all the amenities.
Upon arrival we were greeted with a basket of fresh croissants and a few other goodies. Jim and Jane had also put together an information package on the area, places to visit, places to shop, and places to eat. This was very helpful indeed.
If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing spot in the country, this will be ideal for you. Everything is a short drive away. Overall, it was quite a lovely experience!
It was wonderful, we had a great time!
A beautiful house with all what we needed. A beautiful pool for swimming and relaxing. A beautiful view around the nature and wideness. And the best are Jim and Jane (and LEA) and their genial support - at our arrival, we found everything we needed and if Jim works in the garden we got potatos, zucchini and others.
We enjoyed the time there very much.
We had a wonderful time!
At our arrival, we found everything we needed ready. The beds were made towels were ready for use and some fine food was available.
We were happely surprised to find the gite so beautifull and complete with games, books and kitchen appliances.
Our children loved swimming in the heated swimmingpool. We were able to fly our kite on the mountain face.
Furthermore we had good advise on the trips we could make in the surroundings, and enjoyed them very much.
We had a wonderful time.
Les Volets Bleus provides the ideal base to investigate Maconais and Beaujolias vineyards, local historical chateaux, Romanesque churches and French open air markets and after all that why not just chill out by the pool and recharge your batteries!
