Wine country getaway with fabulous home cooking

  • 4 of 5

This two bedroom house is perfect for families. We stayed there in early August with our two children and two dogs. The weather was a bit cool for the pool but if it had been warmer, we would have spent all day there! The kitchen is well equipped but there is no need to cook if you arrange a meal with the hosts, Claude and David. In addition to treating us to a welcome drink and a late afternoon aperitif, they were available to deliver croissants and baguettes in the morning and serve us a three-course dinner in the evening. The amenities were as described in the listing. There is wifi available and is quite fast. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Ideal for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at La Charmée in June 2017. The property lies in a very small 'village' consisting of only a few houses. It is the last one on the western edge of that village so that you live absolutely close to nature and have a beautiful view over the open landscape on the setting sun in the evening.

The weather was sunny and hot and so we took full advantage of the beautiful pool. It has a cover, so that you have always water temperatures from 28 - 30 degrees. You can remove that cover easily so that you swim under the open air.

The part of the property, that you can use totally on your own is large (maybe 2000 m² or more) and you have everything you can wish for a relaxing holiday at your hands. Montberthault lies at the northern edge of the mountain area 'Morvan'. The landscape is lovely and is built out of smooth hills. On one hand It's a very quiet area (unbelievably stillness in the evening), on the other hand you are near to some of the most beautiful sights of Bourgogne - for example Vezelay (38 Km), or Fontenay (35 Km). Even Beaune or Dijon are only 90 km away.

Claude and David are very friendly hosts that help you whenever you need it, but keep very discret and unvisible if you don't.

Prachtige tuin met zwembad.

  • 4 of 5

Een keurig huisje met zwembad en prachtige tuin. De eigenaar, die achter het huisje woont, houdt alles nauwlettend in de gaten met als verklaring dat hij het de huurders naar de zin wil maken. Zelf geniet hij van een fantastisch uitzicht terwijl wij het moesten doen met zijn, inderdaad, prachtig aangelegde tuin.

Ruhig, sehr gepflegte Umgebung, Nette und unaufdringliche Gastgeber - Immer gerne wieder

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt in einem abgelegen Weiher und man erlebt die Natur pur. Sehr schöne gepflegte Umgebung mit Kindersicherem Pool (mit Abdeckung bei schlechtem Wetter). Das Haus ist bietet Platz für 4 Personen (1 Doppelbett und 2 Kajütenbetter). Nicht sehr grösse Fläche im Haus, aber dennoch genügend für 4 Personen.

Die Gastgeber sind sehr zurückhaltend und überhaupt nicht aufdringlich und man ist wirklich für sich alleine beim Aufenthalt.

In der näheren und weiteren Umgebung stehen viele Erlebnismöglichkeiten zur Verfügung.

Wir werden sicherlich in Zukunft wieder einmal dort unsere Ferien verbringen.

Calme et sérénité

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine bien agréable, avec enfants et chien, et avons apprécié la piscine, le “cottage” et le grand jardin très acceuillant. La location est tout à fait conforme à la description. David et Claude sont très discrets mais toujours disponible si nécessaire. Un grand merci pour cette semaine bien reposante.
