About the property

Two old cottages each for 5 people between Morvan and Loire River

The holiday houses of the Domain Dreuzy used to be outbuildings of a 19th century mansion inhabited by the gardener and the doorkeeper.

They are separated by some 400 metres of meadows, about the same distance from the owners.

LE JARDINIER stands on a wooded hill. Due to its most unusual architecture it is listed in the patrimony department of the Nièvre.

Restored using authentic materials, the amenities offer all modern comforts.

Exposed beams, Burgundian terracotta floor tiles, panned windows and stone steps lend unique character to this cottage.

The living room, traditionally furnished, in a comfortable country style with a monumental fireplace for cosy evenings, gives on to a covered patio and immense open spaces inviting to outdoor activities either in the sun or in the shade of ancient trees.

The ground floor kitchen, large enough to eat in, is fully equipped to the highest standards.

The house, which includes a basement, is on two floors, each with its own WC. A wooden staircase leads from the living room upstairs to the bedrooms and bathroom.

No need of any garden fences...the private space around the house is of over 1000 sq.m., surrounded by meadows, clumps of trees and fields. No road, just nature.

50 metres ahead, horse stables can be prepared to welcome the best friends of our rider visitors. An exclusive shaded and fenced meadow of 4000 sq.m., with water point, is at disposal. Horse rides start directly from the spot !

LE GARDIEN stands in the middle of a 600 sq.m wide garden., with a mix of shade and sun surrourded by big trees, wide fields and meadows. A fence and a thick hedge protect children and dogs and ensure outdoor privacy.

It is a house with a lot of charm, restored using authentic materials, the amenities offer all modern comforts.

Exposed beams, wooden inside shutters and large flagstones on the ground floor, Burgundian terracotta floor tiles and exposed main beams on the first floor, panned windows, open fireplaces of stone lend a very specific character to the house.

The living room is filled with light during the day and is very cosy with its open fireplace in the evening. A large door gives access to the garden with its former park gate and a bridle path lined with huge ancient trees.

The kitchen is spacious with a large dining table, fully equipped with all modern amenities. A wood stove can complete the electric heating of the kitchen.

The house includes a basement and two floors, each with WC.

One can reach the ground floor from the garden over several stone steps either through the kitchen door or the living room door ; a wooden staircase leads from the living room to the upper bedrooms and bathroom.

Ruhe und Beschaulichkeit

  • 5 of 5

Wer mal wirklich wieder nichts hören möchte ausser Vogelgezwitscher und Grillenzirpen ist hier richtig. Radfahren am Kanal oder über Land ist sehr empfehlenswert, sowohl Rennrad als auch Tourenfahren. Sabine und Jean kümmern sich liebevoll um alle Bedürfnisse.

Einmalig, ruhig, sehr autentisch und ländlich in einem sehr schönen Bereich von Burgund gelegen.

  • 5 of 5

Auf unserer Suche nach einem Wohnobjekt in der Gegend von Burgund haben wir das Landhaus in den Angeboten entdeckt.

Alle im Angebot gezeigten Bilder und gemachten Aussagen kann ich voll bestätigen.

Trotz der teilweise wechselnden Wetterlage haben wir die Sehenswürdigkeiten der Umgebung besuchen können.

Dazu hat das Vernmieter-Ehepaar mit Ratschlägen, Beschreibungen und umfangreichem Prospektmaterial beigetragen.

dépaysement total

  • 5 of 5

ce fut un dépaysement total dans cette maison " le gardien"riche en histoire, rénovée avec gout tout en gardant son âme.

La maison est confortable, propre, spacieuse, lumineuse. Tout est là pour pouvoir passer un bon séjour.

Le paysage est splendide et reposant, nos voisines les plus proches sont les vaches charolaises. Très discrètes!

Le jardin est vaste, varié et cloturé, très appréciable pour notre chien. La maison étant au centre , nous avons le soleil toute la journée.

Monsieur Lacofrette est un homme tout à fait charmant , intéressant , nous faisant partager son amour pour sa région et son histoire. Il est plein de bons conseils concernant les visites, les restaurants, les caves, les activités . Nous n'avons pas été déçus. Un cahier regroupant tous les conseils et adresses est à notre disposition ainsi qu'un petit cadeau de bienvenue.

Quel délice de ne plus etre importuné par les portables. Pas beaucoup de réseaux (sauf dans le jardin)

Encore merci à Monsieur Lacofrette pour sa disponibilité et la rapidité avec laquelle il résout les problèmes même les we.

C'est avec tristesse que nous avons quitté cet endroit.

The Domain of Dreuzy is the former park (over 30 acres) of a 150 years old mansion, victim of a fire today disappeared. Its trees are over hundred years old.

Both houses, 'Le JARDINIER du château' (the Gardener) and 'Le GARDIEN du château' (the Doorkeeper) are isolated and enjoy spectacular panoramas. The surrounding countryside is composed of rolling hills and hedged farmland.

Flora and fauna abound in unspoiled nature : red squirrels, game of all sizes, birds of prey...

There is a nature walk next to the properties and the Nivernais Canal, just 5 km away, is perfect for easy walks and bike rides ; horse riding stables 3 km from the houses, swimming in either the river Yonne or nearby lakes.

Le JARDINIER and Le GARDIEN are situated next to the natural park of the Morvan region and are ideally located to discover all the cultural riches of the region : Vézelay, Autun, Avallon, Clamecy, Château-Chinon, Nevers, Guédelon...Wine regions of Loire and Burgundy, gastronomy, amusement parks, hunting, all types of fishing, golf courses and other sports easy to reach.
