              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: Marc and Sophie and their children: Julien, Joseph and Lucie, are happy to welcome you in this charming guest house of Brianny. We speak English and we can communicate in German and Spanish.

              Why the Owner Chose Semur-en-Auxois:
              We chose to buy this house because it's very well situated - 7 kms from the exit #23 “Bierre-les-Semur” on the A6 highway - An hour from Paris with the 'bullet train'.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The guesthouse is an authentic little farmhouse renovated 'in his juice' (low doors, bread-oven, well protected, rabbithouse, kitchen garden.... Many cultural activities around and on Sundays “Vide-greniers”: these village-wide “garage sales” in various villages between May and September are very popular.
