L'Ancienne Forge (FeWo-direkt. De 2046245) now has a sister: Die kleine Schmiede - La Petite Forge!
In the extension of the old smithy, in the spring of 2018, a separate holiday apartment for two people was built.
An old wrought iron lattice surrounds the approximately 18 square meter southwest-facing terrace and leads into a light-flooded living room. Linen fabrics filter the light and give the four-meter-long canapé the view of a magnificent landscape. Warm light sources and reading lamps invite to idle hours.
The small open kitchen offers the Viel-Koch a sufficient basis for the delicious self-proclaimed
supply. Glasses and dishes are stored in a wall shelf and provide the backdrop for the round cozy
Dining table with the old curved garden armchairs from a good home ...
A staircase leads to the upper area of the apartment to the warehouse and a shower room with toilet and a
separate vanity. An armchair with adjustable backrest provides a further reading / resting corner on the de gallery.
An awning also protects the large terrace from raindrops. From here you can enjoy wonderful sunsets and witness the leisurely village and country life ...
In the course of the year, the small garden in front will also be given its shape. Planned is a terrace with gravel from the nearby Saône. Here you have the opportunity to take breakfast in the morning sun, surrounded by hydrangeas and oleanders ....
Our village of Saint Didier sur Arroux, located on the southern foothills of the Morvan, is a good starting point for exploring the near and far. Right from the house you are in just a few steps in nature. Guests arriving by bicycles can park in a garage 200 meters away. Endless hiking trails in the heights and expanses of the Morvan will challenge and delight you.
For those interested in culture, a visit to the old Roman city of Autun (about 20 minutes) is a must. There is a market held on Wednesdays and Fridays. The way up to the cathedral leads through medieval streets. Here time seems to have stopped.
From your terrace you look out onto Mont Beuvray, once the seat of the important ancient Celtic city of Bibracte. The museum and the excavations are worth seeing and exit for beautiful walks (about 25 minutes)
Nearby, in La Boulaye, is the Temple of the Milles Buddha, one of the largest active Buddhist temples in Europe (about 15 minutes).
If you are staying a few days longer, you can take a trip to Beaune (about 60 minutes) with its world famous Hospice Hotel Dieu. The path leads through the route of the Grands Crus through famous vineyards ....
After Cluny (about 90 minutes) with the ruins of the largest church in the West, possibly connected with a tour of the Brionnais with its Romanesque village churches.
Also to Veselez, World Heritage Site by UNESCO (about 90 minutes) in the northern Morvan worth a drive, possibly combined with a trip to Chablis ...
If you just want to laze around, you will find a bathing lake with shady spots in the neighboring village of Thil sur Arroux.
In the evening, you will return to our restaurant La Petite Auberge (about 200 m) and end the day on our terrace surrounded by wild wine (please book in advance under 0033 (0) 3 85 82 2246)
