River Cottage is excellently positioned on the edge of the tranquil village of Boudreville bordering the Chatillonnais forests in North Burgundy. Ideally placed to discover and explore the region or simply relax away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life!
On entering the main entrance gates, you are welcomed with the beautiful countryside of the Aube valley with its forests and rolling hills. The cottage is set in a private 2 acre park of meadows, orchards and wooded areas and the river Aube which runs alongside the grounds of the property providing a haven for wildlife (trout, deer etc). It has a private south facing garden with secluded patio area and is fully enclosed making it safe for small children. There is an above ground swimming pool of 4m x 2m x 1.20m ideal for relaxing and cooling down.
The cottage itself is a beautiful and historic building, which has been fully renovated by the current owners who have carefully restored many of the original features whilst providing a high level of comfort and space. One of the highlights being the large “Burgundy” style kitchen / dining room and separate sitting room showing original oak beams, large stone fireplace, open stone walls, burgundy floor tiles, and stone cut washing bowl, which historically allowed the release of water under the main window! There are 3 large double bedrooms and a large family bathroom.
A butchers, bakery, grocery store and pharmacy are available in the neighbouring villages of Veuxhaulles-sur-Aube and Montigny-sur-Aube which are only 5 minutes away, with the larger supermarkets only a 10 minute drive at Chateauvillain or Chatillon-sur-Seine. Local vans call at the village during the week with fresh delivery of bread, meat / delicatessen and cheese.
