A fantastic stay! Thank you – I’m sure we’ll be back. We’ve very much enjoyed staying in your house.
The listing description of this house was very accurate - indeed, the house was even better than described. It is a beautiful spacious old house, very well-equipped and extremely comfortable. We were particularly taken with the swimming pool area across the road. The pool house was marvellous, with its own kitchen and fridge. The astroturf area next to the pool appealed to our two boys who could play football and boules. An English friend of the owners lives nearby and he helped when we had a problem with the pool. The nearby medieval chateau was within walking distance. The town of Couches, with its two restaurants, was further but only a 30 minute walk away. And the southern Burgundy countryside around is simply beautiful. A fine place to stay.
We did not know the area or the house in advance, and therefore did not know what to expect - but we were all very pleasantly surprised!
The most charming and pesonally restored house, spacious, secluded, private, luxourius surroundings with all the owners little tips for a perfect holiday. The nearby village is charming and contains the most of what you need such as a baker, a small supermarket and a couple of restaurants.
This property can be only highly recommended - go there, and you never want to leave!!
