I bought this small farm in 2003. Since then we have done a huge amount of work to it with new heating, new kitchen, new bathrooms etc. But keeping as much of the original character and materials as we can.

Amazing stay will be back
We had an amazing holiday, the house layout was perfect for us being 2 families. Every room was big and airy.
Peter was so helpful and lovely.
We will be back.
Beautiful relaxing week
I booked the house for me and my family, all 9 of us and a baby. Only 5.5 hours from Calais and mainly motorway.
We had glorious weather most of the week and the pool was lovely to have when it got really hot to cool off.
The house itself had everything we needed, lovely kitchen we cooked in every night.
We didn't do much, we visited Dijon for a day and went to the national parks and went kayaking. My boyfriend and I had a glamping reservation mid week further South so it was the perfect location to go from.
I would say it's the perfect place to relax and laze around (we are used to packed itineries wherever we go )
And we had a lovely time and feel refreshed.
Thanks for having us!
A fantastic tranquil property in rural France
We were 8 adults and 2 teenagers. In addition to that we had 3 babies under a year with us and the property accommodated us all easily. The place is well equipped with all necessary facilities for a restful self catering holiday. The pool was a life saver as we had 34 degrees heat for most of the week.
The owners responded to requests for information or clarification really promptly.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the week at En Menelot. We would certainly consider a return holiday in the future.
We had 2 trips out. Firstly to Beaune and then to Château neuf. Both beautiful places and worth a visit.
If you have a large family and are looking relax this is the holiday for you.
We all loved it x
Fantastic holiday again.
this was our second visit and just as good as the first. The house is so spacious and well equipped. The view from the pool onto the wildlife packed lake is stunning. We had two groups of friends who came to visit us and they were all so impressed and loved there stay. Visited chateau nerf again. Had a wonderful meal. This is a must visit for all ages. As always very sad to leave.
Perfect holiday home
Super house in great order in a standalone position. Lovely area but unfortunately the village restaurant is currently shut. Would definitely recommend the property
Lovely secluded renovated farmhouse.
A lovely renovated farmhouse in a peaceful, secluded spot. Very tastefully decorated, spacious bedrooms, large garden. Pool area very suited to families with small children as safely fenced off. We spent the majority of our holiday on the roofed pool terasse as weather was fabulous and took advantage of the large outside dining area. House is within 30 mins of all wine areas and very good wine cave in village of Pouilly en Auxois (15 mins by car). Hotel de Commerce very good family restaurant in Pouilly also. Very helpful caretakers available for all questions and we even had their daughter as a babysitter one evening. Highly recommended.
Very private location, just on the edge of the village of Clomot. Change over day saturday
