Secure off-road parking is in the courtyard and can take several cars.
The large courtyard has planted areas and provides good shade on hot days. Al fresco dining is on a wrought iron garden suite and outdoor games include table tennis, skittles and pétanque. There are also some loungers to lie out in the sun, and herbs and fig trees that you can help yourself to. Living next to the house, the courtyard has not been planted for ease of maintenance but to provide a variety of flowers and herbs, with something to see nearly all year round.
L’Ancien Domaine is located at the edge of a quiet village (which has essential shops), next to the countryside but only 5 mins from Beaune, Pommard, Volnay and Meursault.
