About Stewart Greer

Myself and my wife Christina live and work in London. I work in IT and Christina is a civil servant. We have an 8 year old son. We first visited the Cote D’Or area in 2002. We were on our way home from the Alps when we stopped off in Chatillon sur Seine to visit the local museum. We stayed there for a couple of days because we found the area so charming and unspoilt.

Stewart Greer purchased this house in 2007

Why Stewart Greer chose Laignes

We started looking for a holiday home shortly after that trip, and kept coming back to the Cote d’Or. We fell in love with this house and bought it 10 years ago. We love the fact that when you are in the garden, you feel like you are in your own little piece of France and you can just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. The house was built just a few years after the battle of Waterloo. It has a lovely garden enclosed by the old fortified village walls and a real sense of history about it.

What makes this house unique

There are bakeries, a supermarket, a restaurant and a bar in Laignes all within 5 minutes walk of the house. There are a wider range of restaurants, shopping and bars in Chatillon sur Seine which is just 15 minutes away. For the best and freshest food it’s worth driving to Chablis for the Sunday market. There is a lot to do in the area. We visit the great vineyards and cheese-makers and the medieval villages like Noyers, that seem to have come straight from a fairytale. We enjoy picnics at the wonderful lakes in the Foret de l’Orient with child friendly beaches, though we often go swimming in the local lake at Marcenay just 15 minutes from the house.

We love our house and the Cote d’ Or and hope you love it too.

Great location and lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Stewart’s house – it was peaceful and quiet and we enjoyed sitting in the garden with a glass of wine after a busy day of visiting the local tourist areas. There are some really good Cremant producers within easy reach of the house and we enjoyed sampling the local fizz. The house was very comfortable with everything that we needed. We would highly recommend a stay here.

A spacious and well equipped restored house in a quiet village.

  • 4 of 5

Pleasant and practical restored house in a quiet village with a small enclosed garden. Nicely equipped kitchen and utility room, and comfortably beds. We enjoyed our stay. The owners and their family seem to use the property for their own visits and this is reflected in the level of facilities provided.

Owner's Response: Hello Adrian, We are really glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. We don't get to spend much time there but we love it when we are there. We find it a great getaway place and love to relax in the back garden and enjoy a good burgundy wine and meal on the patio. Kind regards Stewart and Christina

Lovely rustic farmhouse!

  • 4 of 5

If you want a holiday in the unspoiled countryside, this is your spot. Easy access to Chablis, Tonnerre, Tanlay and Noyers, walk to the Boulangerie in town and explore the Côte d'Or and Tonnerrois. Three bedrooms meant space for the teenagers and the walled in backyard meant complete privacy. We had a lovely relaxing vacation.

Exceptional house in unspoilt France

  • 5 of 5

We visited Burgundy last summer and stayed here for a week in June. The house is well set up for eight people with three big bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen, and a self contained garden where the kids could play safely. There is a big lake nearby which was great for swimming and picnics.

There are shops within five minutes walk from the house. For a bigger shop the supermarkets in nearby Chatillon were only 15 minutes drive away. There is also a wide selection of restaurants in Chatillon for an evening out.

While there are some lovely places to visit nearby, part of the fun was exploring the local countryside in a very unspoiled part of France. We loved the open air Sunday market in Chablis. It's a very pretty town and the selection of local produce was brilliant.

It was a lovely house to stay in, very comfortable and restful and remarkably good value. Will certainly stay there again

Gut ausgestattetes, aber hellhöriges Haus

  • 4 of 5

Schönes Haus, gute Ausstattung (wenn auch ohne Wi-Fi). Der E-Mail-Kontakt zum sehr freundlichen Vermieter hat gut funktioniert. Die Wände im Obergeschoss (da sind die Schlafzimmer) sind dünn - wenn jemand durch die obere Etage über die knarrenden Holzdielen geht, sind schnell alle wach. Neben dem Haus liegen Schule und ein Bauernhof,

es ist daher nicht immer ganz ruhig (und durch die Kühe kann es auch schon mal ziemlich streng riechen). Dafür sind es aber nur ein paar Minuten bis zum Bäcker oder Supermarkt. Das Dorf ist (wie alle Dörfer in der Gegend) sehr ursprünglich. In der weiteren Umgebung gibt es viele Sehenswürdigkeiten, die Straßen sind wenig befahren.

Owner's Response: Thank you Stefan for your review and the four stars. We agree Laignes is a charming village. We feel part of the charm of our house is its traditional build and the rural setting, though some compromises have to be made. We have been looking into wifi and it will be available soon.
