Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Corsaint

Oak beams, flagstones, French doors, patio, one bedroom and bathroom

This delightful house has it all - oak beams, flagstones, underfloor geothermal heating, log fire, French doors, south facing garden, large bedroom and bathroom with shower and bath; linens and towels provided, bed made up. It's the perfect romantic getaway for two people. From the garden you can see the sun preparing to set behind the trees beyond, and listen to loads of birdsong. There is a parking space outside the front door on the 'village green'. The downstairs is one large open-plan kitchen/living/dining area; the walls have all been beautifully plastered and lime-washed with a warm but very light shade of honey. Upstairs, exposed oak beams throughout the bedroom and mezzanine enhance the recent renovation of this charming property. Our stonemason and estate agent now tell me that they both regret not having bought the house for themselves!

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome

Pure Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The property is situated in an idyllic situation, next to the village church. It is well equipped, well maintained and very clean.

It has a charming garden, and is highly recommended for retired people. We have many happy memories of our visit to this beautiful gite.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

This property was even nicer than we anticipated - beautifully renovated and decorated and larger than it looked from the photos on the website. We loved hearing the church bells, and enjoyed walking around the local countryside (it's always a bonus to be able to walk from home). We thought Epoisses was lovely - the chateau is totally underplayed - and we had a fascinating trip to Guedelon (a 13th Century castle in the making, less than 2 hours drive away). Recommended!

Essence of French country cottage living

  • 5 of 5

This is a quaint cottage in a picturesque Burgundy village next to an old church whose bells provide a tranquil and spiritual atmosphere. I stayed here for three weeks and loved every minute of it. It is very close to Epoisse which has a wonderful bakery where one can get fresh bread and pastries. It is also close to the beautiful walled city of Semur en Auxois which has several superb restaurants. The countryside has rolling hills which are easy to walk along and the village is very peaceful.

The cottage itself is very tastefully furnished with everything one needs for a memorable stay. The owners are very helpful in providing information re: restaurants and interesting places to see in the surrounding countryside. I hope to return again soon for another wonderful immersion into the Burgundian lifestyle.

A Wonderful Month

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely cottage for 4 weeks. Throughout our entire stay, Bill, the owner, made every attempt to make our stay most enjoyable. He was always just a phone call away, and supplied us with our every need including extra wood for the fireplace during the cold spell.

The cottage itself is very comfortable and spacious, with all the amenities that are needed for a long term stay. The setting is bucolic with rolling hills and picturesque villages throughout the area. And if a dose of city life is needed, then Dijon & Beaune are just an hour away. We highly recommend this countryside escape. Thanks Bill & Jennie

We could not have been more pleased. Beautiful countryside, fabulous accomodations, and excellent hosts! We would recommend your villa with no hesitation to all our friends and family. It was a pleasure meeting you, Jenny, and the girls, Bill. Thanks for a great vacation.
