Newly Restored House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms And A Heated Swimming Pool

Maison de Colline is a spacious, sunny house on a hill with heated swimming pool, a south facing garden with 2 dining terraces with magnificent views of over 30 miles of the Morvan Park with English satellite TV and broadband internet access.

There are 3 nearby lakes:

St Agnan lake is just 10 minutes away, perfect for swimming, lovely beaches, walking around the lake, picnics, fishing and kayak hire ( no noisy water sports or outboard motors allowed)

Lac du Setton is very lively, it is 20 minutes away and offers hire of water sport equipment, beaches, restaurants and swimming.

It lies on the edge of the friendly and lively village of Quarre les Tombes which still has the original French market square, bars, shops, museum and chocolaterie. It regularly holds, along with all the neighbouring villages in the Morvan, Vide Greniers, fairs and festivals and is situated perfectly for escaping into the Morvan National Park or exploring Burgundy's many treasures and wine trails.

Fantastic family holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 2 week family holiday at Maison de Colline. The cottage is in lovely grounds with amazing views. It is very comfortable and well equipped. The surrounding areas are great to explore with the children. I would highly recommend this place and hope we may return to it one day!

A wonderful house in Burgundy

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Maison de Colline. We were nine persons, and there was plenty of space, beds and bathroom facilities for everybody.

The garden is wide and pleasant. Everyone loved the pool, and the kids were really happy with the trampoline.

The views from the house and the garden are magnificent; you see some typical rolling French farming landscape and parts of the Morvan park.

The nearby Quarre-les-Tombes is a wonderful little village with a small and pleasant local market three days a week. There is also a tourist office and a nice little public library. It is a short drive to a lot of different Burgundy attractions.

We spent a week in the house, and experienced no problems. I can recommend the house to everybody looking for a pleasant stay in Burgundy.

Lovely house in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable and spacious house superbly equipped and maintained for a family stay. The owners were most accommodating and had the repair to the heating of the outdoor pool completed quickly. The town of Quarre le Tombs has all the facilities of a small Burgundy town with larger towns close by. There is much to do in the area with lakes, notable abbeys and the Zoo at the Parc de l'Auxois within easy reach. All in all Maison de Colline is a great place to stay for a memorable holday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. We had a wonderful season last year and , happily, our bookings are doing really well for this year also. Just to mention that we have extended the gardens now so that there is another large area for dining with the extraordianary valley views and the trampoline has its own space too!

It is just a few minutes drive to the N6 and A6 , 5 hours drive to Calais, 1 hour on the TGV from Montbard to Euro Disney and Paris and 5 hours to London on the TGV/Lille Eurostar. The A6 whisks you down to Dijon (55 mins.) and Beaune or north to Auxerre, Chablis and Paris…. what could be easier? The house is newly renovated & has stripped oak beamed ceilings, tommet floors, spacious light rooms with plain walls & large windows. There are fireplaces in 2 of the main living areas, the whole house is tastefully decorated, balanced and peaceful. There is a winding stone staircase to the large bedrooms, the newly fitted bathrooms are modern .The dining kitchen is a large interactive space for families and groups to socialise easily. The heated pool is at the end of the garden with valley views, dining areas and tastefully planted.
