Property description

"La Maison de Susan" - This tastefully decorated manor from the 1600's was restored in 2008 to include all modern day conveniences while still maintaining the beautiful period details. Though private, the location offers the benefits of a bakery, butcher, market, florist, pharmaceutics, restaurants and bars within one block. The gite (apartment) overlooks a courtyard behind a beautiful iron gate and provides lots of sunlight. It is situated within rural French countryside surroundings, in the small, picturesque village of Nolay (2000 persons).

The countryside near Nolay offers the spectacular cliffs of Le Boute du Monde (World's End), Nolay is a small medieval town nestled in a valley where the granite outcroppings give way to limestone hillsides.... a transition from farming to woods to the ever present vineyards that Burgundy is known for. The central plaza, or heart of the village includes a XIV century market hall and beautiful church from the 15th century which has figures which strike the bell tower every hour.

The perfect retreat for lovers of superb French wine and cuisine...Imagine savoring the flavors or Burgundy. If you are looking for a more unusual holiday, then this is the choice for you. Burgundy is an area rich in history, outstanding beauty, fabulous cuisine and boasts the best wines to be found in France.

A Welcome pack will be awaiting all visitors and includes condiments, tea, coffee, fresh bread, milk and juice.


This country French manor maison/house actually is the quintessential European style of home over top a retail establishment. There are two dwellings, an antique shop, courtyard, an old barn and a loft.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: English woman who decided to give up the city and start a new life by doing the things she loves.... restoring historic homes, making people happy, entertaining, buying beautiful things for her antique store.

Why the Owner Chose Nolay:
This location seemed like the perfect blend for me, and perspective guests, to enjoy the tranquility of the countryside while still having the amenities of modern day life and the quintessential small specialty shops that France is often known for (bakeries, butchers, flower shops, etc). Here you can get away from the hustle and bustle while still being close to all the amenities of larger cities.
