Fantastic stately home
We had a fantastic stay in St Didier. The house was very large we were a group of 7 but could easily have put 5 more people in. Everything we could have needed was supplied. The kitchen is very modern and well appointed. The wifi worked very well. We did use the pool a couple of times and it is nice to cool down in after a days travelling. We had many evenings sitting out the front of the house looking over the fields with cattle grazing by. The owners were very welcoming and lovely living only a few minutes away in St Christophe. You do need a car as it is away from the town but this gives you the opportunity to see the many little villages around. We had dinner 1 night in St Didier and it was very good. Wineries in Beaujolais and Pouilly Fuisse both about half an hour away. No hesitation in giving 5 stars.
Thank you very much for your comments.
We are happy you enjoyed your stay in Saint Didier and the Burgundy region.

L'accueil a été très cordiale, quelques provisions étaient à disposition dont une confiture maison, des fromages, pains et saucisson magnifiques. La maison est très bien meublée, la propreté impeccable, les lits de qualité, nous étions 11 et nous ne nous sommes gênés à aucun moment. Le niveau des sanitaires est parfait, avec un bon éclairage. Le propriétaire s'est montré très disponible pour nous renseigner sur les environs et nous procurer une poussette-cane pour notre petite fille. Le point faible, c'est la piscine, ce n'est qu'un bassin pour les enfants, mais qui a fait le joie des 3 jeunes enfants de la famille. Le lieu est très calme, bien situé entre Paray le Monial et Marcigny, les commerces les plus proches sont à St-Christophe en Brionnais à environs 15 min de voiture. Une belle découverte.
Visit the site of Solutré, the mills of the river Arconce and spend the day at the amusement park LE PAL, a superb amusement park, for both children and adults.
Near the house an equestrian center located by the river offers horse riding
or on ponies for adults or children
The area known for its history is rich in castles, Romanesque churches, museums in Marcigny, Paray the monial, Charolles,
A superb municipal swimming pool in Paray le monial and many tennis courts will delight children
If you like fishing the river Arconce is full of fish and is safe for children if they want to fish for darts or bleaks.
Concerning the restoration the restaurant of the village proposes to you meals which you can order and to go for a price quite reasonable
For those who wish a gourmet restaurant 3 restaurants are famous: Three Gros near Roanne of international reputation
The banks of the Loire in Pouilly sous Charlieu managed by a former chef of Trois Gros
The post office restaurant in Charolles of national renown.
the country landscapes are very varied and the many paths through the fields and the hills will make you discover always different points of view.
At 5 km from the house a cattle market in Saint Christophe en Brionnais takes place every Wednesday, visits are organized to understand the principle of market dial or animals are auctioned and are dispatched to be sent to foreign countries or farms for fattening.
Inside the property we have installed a ping pong table
a small platform on a tree, a table for outdoor meals and sun loungers to rest and admire the landscape.
It is possible from July to fish frogs in the surrounding ponds using the technique without hooks, you can release them if you wish.
During small rains in July the collection of burgundy snails is allowed, once the preparation is completed the constraints and the hardness of the task will be largely offset by shared usability.
You can go for long walks and enjoy the white oxen grazing in the meadows, the smell of hay cut in mid July, the larks' field in the morning, the cooing of turtledoves will inspire you or invite you to meditation
For those who wish to work in peace each room is equipped with a table that can be used as an office, the house is large enough so that you are not distracted by those who watch television or listen to music
