Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Jeux-lès-Bard - Les Lilas

Completely restored Burgundian farmhouse with magnificent views 2 BR, sleeps 4

Built in the early part of the 19th century, Les Lilas is a classic Burgundian stone farmhouse attached to a large converted barn, recently completely restored by the present owners.

Although totally modernised, Les Lilas retains the features and the feel of its origins. Situated on the edge of the village of Jeux les Bard, in a walled-in south-facing garden, the property offers privacy with unobstructed views across pasture land to the distant hills.

The spacious house, which can sleep 4 in 2 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms (1 en-suite bedroom upstairs with private entrance; 1 bedroom with adjoining shower room on the ground floor) . Many charming features: flag-stone and red-tile flooring; massive beams in the open-plan barn and an elevated terrace.

Pastoral tranquillity between Chablis and Beaune: Built in the early part of the 19th century, Les Lilas is a classic Burgundian stone farmhouse attached to a large converted barn, recently completely restored by the present owners.

Although totally modernised, Les Lilas retains the features and the feel of its origins. Situated on the edge of the village of Jeux les Bard, in a walled-in south-facing garden, the property offers privacy with unobstructed views across pasture land to the distant hills.

The spacious house, which can sleep 4 in 2 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms (1 en suite bedroom upstairs with private entrance; 1 bedroom with adjoining shower room on the ground floor) . Many charming features: flag-stone and red-tile flooring; massive beams in the open-plan barn and an elevated terrace.

Lovely perennial gardens surround the house, and a vegetable garden provides salad and vegetables in season.

Les Lilas: The house is centred on a massive converted open-plan barn with fully equipped kitchen, dining area, comfortable lounge, bar and elevated corner library.

The west wall is entirely composed of French doors and windows, giving on to a furnished elevated terrace with unobstructed views across the fields.

The room features dramatic oak beams and a décor that, while modern, still reflects the 19th century origins of the property.

Off the main barn, in the old Burgundian stone farmhouse, is the main floor bedroom, with adjoining bathroom and laundry.

The second en suite bedroom is accessed by exterior stairs and has a private entrance from a balcony above the main terrace.

There is a small walled in flower garden in front of the house, with perennial beds surrounding the rest of the property. There is a substantial vegetable garden situated near the private parking area.

Markets and tourism: Point of interest:

• Sunday morning, there is a small street market in Semur en Auxois. There are food shops open there as well. There is also a larger market in Chablis, but is a longer drive.

The supermarkets in Montbard and Toutry are open Sunday morning. The village of Epoisses has basic necessities.

Otherwise, the best markets are:

• Avallon is 20 minutes away. The market is Saturday morning, though this is a good town to shop in general.

• Montbard is 20 minutes away. The market is Friday morning.

• Auxerre is an hour away. The markets are Friday and Saturday mornings.

• Dijon is an hour away. Market Tuesday and Saturday morning

TOURISM:

The area in general is very rich in history and culture.

• Chateau at Epoisses

• Semur en Auxois

• Avallon

• Dijon

• Beaune and the Wine Region

• Auxerre and the Chablis Wine Region

• The Burgundy Canal valley has many sites: Alesia; Flavigny; Abbey of Fontenay; Chateaux at Ancy le Franc and Tanlay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very nice view over the fields from the terrace, everything is clean, nice furniture, very impressive kitchen. We had a little bbq yesterday. We also went to Semur-en-Auxois which really surprised us. Tomorrow we are heading for some Beaune visiting. We have had a good time here. We were able to get some sightseeing during the day and relax on the terrace and the large living room during the evening. Also the kitchen was very pleasant…

Beautiful and well equipped holiday home

  • 5 of 5

It is a pleasure to stay in a holiday home which is so clean and well maintained. The kitchen has everything you could possibly want (2 fridges!) if you are eating in. There is also plenty of information and recommendations for restaurants and places to visit. We visited Chablis which has a Sunday market and sampled the wines in the centre of the village.

The property is in a rural situation and very peaceful. We had beautiful weather and spent most of our time sitting in the sun on the veranda.

I would highly recommend this house and hope to,return in the future

Relaxing, clean cottage with amazing view.

  • 4 of 5

On arrival the property does not look too pretty at the front outside, but don't be fooled! The terrace area on the other side is lovely, we loved having the cows as near neighbours! The inside is fully kitted out and very spacious. Ideal for taking some time out of hectic life and just relaxing! Plenty of places to visit nearby, although the wrong area of Burgundy if you are looking for wine!

Owner's Response: Thanks! The house sits at the corner of the village, so the best views are out back...270 degrees of uninterrupted pasture off into the distance. It's why we bought the house in the first place! And while it is true that we are 45 minutes from Beaune, and 45 minutes from Chablis in the other direction...if you are coming to Burgundy for the wine country, we are in the wine business and can get you into places that tourists would never find on their own. All the best from Burgundy!

Mittendrin und herrlich ruhig

  • 5 of 5

Zwei Ehepaare waren zwei Wochen in Burgund unterwegs. Eine Woche mit dem Hausboot auf Saone und Seille, eine Woche in dem herrlichen Ferienhaus "Les Lilas". Anreise und Abreise waren völlig unkompliziert und von gegenseitigem Vertrauen getragen. Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet, der Sonnenschutz muss noch etwas verbessert werden, damit man die schöne Terrasse besser nutzen kann. Zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten ist es mit dem Auto nicht weit. Innerhalb von einer Autostunde erreicht man interessante Orte, nach der Rückkehr genießt man die Ruhe des Dorfes.

Wir bedanken uns für einen Genussurlaub.

Relaxing! Literally pastoral!

  • 5 of 5

My wife & our six year old son stayed here at Les Lilas for 3 weeks. It was perfect for us. We took frequent walks in the surrounding countryside and became quite familiar with Epoisses and Samur en Auxois as these two villages are where we shopped for groceries. We truly enjoyed the antics of the cows and our son fed them fresh grass almost daily.

The house was very comfortable for us. We slept upstairs and our son slept downstairs and this was never a concern for us or our son. Internet access was a plus and there is a television but we never turned it on. It was a great home for exploring the sights in Burgundy but be advised you will need a car and to be prepared to do some driving. This was the only slight negative for us as during our previous stays in France there has been at least a boulangerie within walking distance. Epoisses is really close however and we became very friendly with the local merchants.

We saw a lot during our 3 weeks but some of our fondest memories are of just walking the local roads and fields, cooking & having dinner at the house and just relaxing and playing. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners, Dennis & Ellie, and we thank them for their hospitality, help and kindness.

Bucolic!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully restored farmhouse with a pastoral view at the edge of a tiny village. Upon arrival we were pleased to see that the interior and exterior looked exactly like the photos on the website. The house was well furnished, roomy beyond our needs and expectations, and very comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed and a joy to play in. The location was convenient for taking day trips in every direction. We never ran out of ideas for outings. If we had been luckier with the weather that week we would have thoroughly enjoyed spending (a lot) of time on the deck sipping wine and watching the cows!

Car: necessary

The village of Jeux les Bard in Burgundy is situated about 300km south-east of Paris. It is about an hour by car from either Dijon or Beaune (by auto-route) and about a half-hour from Chablis cross-country.

It is convenient to 3 interesting towns, each about 15 minutes drive from Jeux. Semur-en Auxois is a fortified medieval gem with good shopping and restaurants. Montbard is located in the Burgundy Canal valley and has many interesting sites nearby (notably the Abbey at Fontenay, Flavigny-sur Ozerain and Alesia, as well as many of Burgundy’s best chateaux). The TGV stops 8 times a day at the Montbard station, with Paris 1h05 away, and London (via Lille and the Eurostar) or EuroDisney is an easy morning trip. Avallon is about 20 minutes away, but boasts a wonderful market and many excellent shops and restaurants. Access to the Morvan regional park is easiest via Avallon.

  • As is typical in Burgundian farmhouses, the upstairs en-suite bedroom is accessed by an outside stair, hence it has a private entrance. Because of the stair, however, we do not recommend this room for children. High-beamed ceilings and built-in cabinets create an open spacious feel. The downstairs bedroom and bath can be partitioned off to create an en-suite, or the bathroom can be made available to general use. If used en-suite, a foyer opens on to a small private terrace.
