About the property

Spacious and private property, close to vineyards of Chablis, Beaune, Champagne

Le Moulin sur la Seine is a beautifully converted watermill of 230 square meters, set

in a peaceful village in Côte d’Or, Burgundy. It sits at the end of a quiet lane on the banks of the River Seine. You can park your car safely off the road, lock the gates behind you and let the children (and dogs) roam freely! The peaceful gardens sit alongside the river and access to these is through a gate, so there’s no need to worry about small children playing too close to the river. There is plenty of space for you to eat outside on the terrace, barbecue or play games. Moving inside there is a large well-equipped kitchen with all the mod cons (dishwasher, microwave etc) and a large dining table big enough for you to enjoy your meals in the rustic setting. The comfortable sitting room has plenty of sofas, an open fire and TV, and there is a more formal dining area, so you really can make the most of all the space and relax. The gorgeous oak staircase leads upstairs to the landing and 4 bedrooms, one of which is ensuite. Three of the bedrooms enjoy views over the front of the house, courtyard and river. This is a perfect base from which to explore Burgundy or other nearby areas as transport links are so good. In addition, free WiFi internet and excellent mobile phone reception enable you to stay in touch with the outside world. Le Moulin sur la Seine is a perfect getaway for families, or for couples looking to indulge themselves with a bit of comfort and luxury.


Within an easy hour's drive of Etrochey are Dijon, the vibrant and beautiful capital city of Burgundy; the medieval town of Troyes with its half-timbered houses, street-side cafes, and excellent shopping; Flavigny-sur-Ozerain where the film ‘Chocolat’ was filmed and Semur-en-Auxois, a walled town with enchanting cobbled streets & excellent restaurants - a hit with children and adults alike. Other attractions include the Chatillon museum with its famous bronze ‘vase de Vix’ which was found nearby and is around 2,500 years old; Chateauneuf-en-Auxois, a lovely flower-decked town with an impressive, mediaeval castle which just has to be visited; the Abbey de Fontenay, a superb Cistercian abbey & UNESCO World Heritage Site; and the museum and park of Alésia where you can travel back in time to see history as it happens! The new Interpretation Centre of park immerses you completely in the conquest of Gaul by the Romans, Caesar and Vercingétorix pitted against one another.

And for wine lovers? Chablis, Beaune, Meursault, Volnay, Pommard, Champagne and the local Crémant de Bourgogne; all good days out...ask us for more details and recommendations.

The property is delightful, the facilities are up-to-date and easily accommodated all of us. The furniture is very comfortable and the kitchen is large and well appointed. There are multiple bathrooms. Two of them are very large. The bedrooms are roomy and extremely quiet thanks to very tight shutters.

The garden is beautiful and offers multiple places to sit, in the shade or in the sun.

We had a two-year old with us. The perimeter of the garden was secure and we felt that she could safely run around.

The hosts are very friendly and helpful.

We recommend this property with enthusiasm.

Magnifique propriété au bord de l'eau. Exceptionnel!

  • 5 of 5

Vaste propriété arrangée avec goût tant en ce qui concerne l'intérieur que les extérieurs. La maison est très confortable avec une literie au top. Le tout d'une grande propreté. Tout ce dont on peut avoir besoin est là ! Quant aux extérieurs ils sont aménagés de façon à ce que chacun trouve l'espace qui lui convient.

Les oiseaux vous bercent quant à la rivière elle fut une source de plaisirs, même si les eaux étaient basses les poissons sont présents...

Et Michel et sa compagne, les hôtes, sont très sympathiques et de bons conseils. Nous avons apprécié le panier d'accueil qui nous attendait à notre arrivée

En bref un séjour agréable dont nous nous souviendrons avec plaisir
