This delightful cottage is situated in the centre of the village of Escamps (pronounced Eh-cong), Burgundy, just 2 hours drive on the motorway from Paris or a more leisurely two and a half hours taking the “route national” through the forests of Fountainebleau, past small villages and undulating fields of sunflower and canola. Desjardins Cottage is perfect for a weekend getaway or longer stays where you can relax and experience this quintessential French countryside and all it has to offer.
Escamps is a tiny village with a Romanesque church circa 800, just 14 kms from the impressive gothic cathedral town of Auxerre on the river Yonne and 25kms from the wineries of Chablis and Irancy. The house has two bedrooms, one with queen sized bed and the other 2 singles that can be made up as a second queen. There is also a sofa bed in the lounge room for a 3rd child or friends dropping by.
The cottage itself is 400-500 years old. We believe it may have belonged to a religious order since renovations revealed a tiny habited face on the outside wall. The home is well equipped, warm, comfortable and delightfully decorated in the classic French provincial style. The garden is fully fenced in and secure so parents can feel relaxed while children play!
Information is provided for short trips to neighbouring market towns, wineries, restaurants, important religious sites and historic attractions as well as day trips inviting you to explore villages, caves and castles further afield.
