About Ellie Gleave
I am English with a permanent residence in the UK, but now spend six months a year in Burgundy after retiring from the television industry. I have a delightful chocolate cockerpoo dog who is quick to make friends with all my guests.
Ellie Gleave purchased this Apartment in 2016
Why Ellie Gleave chose Sailly
My family in Geneva introduced me to Burgundy 30 years ago and I have had a love affair ever since with its glorious unspoiled countryside and peaceful medieval villages and towns. I owned a holiday home nearby for 22 years while I was working and then got the chance to buy this amazing property three years ago.
What makes this Apartment unique
This stunning property was built in 1862 by a local family who had built a chateau for their first son. Looking at it you would say that the building is halfway between a normal house and a chateau because it has very grand proportions. It sits in a large garden surrounded by fields and has far reaching views over the wonderful rolling countryside.

Quiet and Peaceful Retreat with Spectacular View of the Valley
If you are looking for a really quiet place and some privacy you should take this apartment into consideration.
The former farmhouse is set back from the street by 200 m. The traffic is light during the day, almost nothing during the night. No noise from farming, water pumps, air conditions, airplanes etc. Only the wind, insects, and once in a while a muuh from the cattle.
The apartment has just been built. We were the first using it. The design is clear and warm, inventory and materials all good quality. It is perfect for 2 persons. It has a large sleeping room with a double bed that fits long people. The large window opposite the bed gives a nice view over the valley and you can watch the sunrise from bed.
The bathroom is roomy and light, modern. The shower is larger than usual. Again, a very nice view over the valley.
The kitchen is well equipped for cooking. Stove and oven are high end. If you miss something, tell the landlady and she will look for it.
The sitting room is large and comfortable enough to spend a rainy day inside. When it is warm enough you will anyhow be outside on the terrace or the wooden porch which are next to the sitting room door (actually the entry to the apartment). You will always find a place in the sun or the shade, from sunrise to sundown. And in privacy. From the porch you have a spectacular view over the valley with its old trees, pastures, and hamlets. If you prefer sitting in the green, place the canvas chairs on the near lawn and enjoy the view from there.
The pool area which is spacious and well maintained you share with other people. We always had the pool for ourselves when taking a swim. Somehow people arranged for privacy.
On the premise there is one other apartment (in the former barn) for lease and the landlady may have some private guests. Definitely not an issue in terms of noise and privacy, quite the contrary. The landlady is a perfect host and we met kind and friendly people.
The landlady's little dog is very friendly and quiet, definitely not one of the yelping and nervous kind. You will love her.
