Built in 1840, La Cheneviere is a traditional French country cottage, which has been tastefully restored by its owners, since they bought it in 2004. It is close to Montbard where the TGV stops but it is a very quiet location. La Cheneviere is very much a home from home, where you can relax and 'escape from it all', reassured that the owners have thought of most things you may require- be it a sunbed in Summer or a sledge in Winter! The truly spectacular views, together with the well considered (part-covered) outside space means that relaxing on the patio or in the garden during the warmer months is sublime.The Tour of Burgundy by cycle runs along the Burgundy canal for 580 km. The canal is just at the bottom of the valley from Benoisey. http://www.le-tour-de-bourgogne-a-velo.com/ An article about cycling in the area around Benoisey is at http://experiencefrancebybike.com/bicycling-the-burgundy-canal-for-100-euro-a-day/ The welcoming atmosphere of the house, with woodburners in both reception rooms, means that it can be equally enjoyed in Winter, especially, perhaps, after a bracing walk along the Canal or across the snowy hills!
All this adds up to providing you with a holiday home that, despite the plethora of visitor attractions in the local vicinity, you will always be happy to return home. As many of our visitors will testify!
