Ideal for wine tasting
This is our second visit. The first was in 2016 and we can see the improvements that have been made over the past few years. An excellent property, ideally located for the wine regions we love in France.
“Shabby chic” family home, lovely garden
We loved our stay at the house, lovely long garden and super pool (after we asked for it to be cleaned). The outside covered eating and bbq area was perfect. This is a “shabby chic” property with an unpredictable oven and NO air conditioning. But still a lovely family home.
Thank you for your nice description of our lovely property.
The pool was clean but had leaves on the bottom because of wind and the tenant before you that didn't cover the pool.
Tranquil and beautiful
Lovely house in quiet village location.
The garden is spectacular, really beautiful, peaceful, magical; a delight!
Swimming pool was very nice, a godsend on rare hot days.
Village was small and friendly. Baguettes sold each morning in the pub within a stones throw.
Would highly recommend this for an escape for some down time. It suited our small family very well. I would not want to go there with a group of 10, particularly non-family members as I do not think it would cater well for this- plenty of beds but only 2 bathrooms and no large tables to sit around, but for a small group looking to escape the strains of busy life in a charming surrounding it was perfect.
The house was very stylish. I imagine it would be lovely in winter too with the nice log fire.
Well positioned for our needs. Clean and tidy. Welcome on arrival was perfect.
The accommodation was exactly as described with comfortable seating and the most wonderful open fire. The kitchen and dining area was suited to 8 guests, and there appeared to be a problem with the cooker thermostat. It didn't stop us cooking.
The weather was disappointing as we had hoped to use the pool, which Jon had kindly opened for us just in case.
The village itself was quiet, but Clamecy was only a short drive.
A perfect New Year!
We were fortunate to be able to celebrate such a fabulous New Year in such beautiful surroundings. Despite the bitter cold outside, the house was lovely and warm and the cosy fireplace created an inviting atmosphere and became the centerpoint of many a delightful evening of food, wine and joyful banter! The countryside offered many enjoyable and cultural outings and charming villages to stop for long lunches on the way!
We would definitely consider a spring or summer visit to enjoy the lovely gardens and pool and explore the area further.
The property is on the outskirts of a small village. This beautiful spacious home, restored by the architect owner, has a 40,000 sq.feet private landscaped garden, a 5m x10 m heated mosaic-lined swimming pool and badminton-court, enclosed by stone walls. The enchanting garden, rich with flowers - lilacs, roses, lavender, tulips; fruits - cherries, wild strawberries, apples, quince, mirabelle; and trees - walnut, linden fir and juniper - is really a paradise for adults and children. Excellent shops and restaurants in the vicinty. Wonderful area for jogging and biking; tennis courts nearby.
The property is easily reached by car from Paris in less than two hours by the A6 Paris-Lyon motorway, or by brand new train direct from Paris Bercy to the railway station within walking distance of the house.
