                              Year Purchased: 2006

                              About: I have spent the last 20 or so years in France , I came here in 1990 with my partner looking for a typical French holiday house. We traveled all over France and almost gave up until we stumbled on this relatively unknown part of Southern Burgundy. It was so beautiful with the lovely forests, hills and hedge groves and the traditional stone houses.The wine is fantastic too... It was perfect for us. We settled to living here 6 months of each year. As we were both artists , he a painter and I a photographer we had the luxury of being our own boss.

                              Why Cluny:
                              I had been looking for a property with enough land to keep my horses for a long time. One day my cleaning lady asked me if I knew anyone who wanted to buy a house. Her father had died and her mother wanted to move to town so they were selling the house that had been in the same family for nearly 200 years ! I went to see it . The house was a complete wreck but the view was staggering. I fell in love with the property on the spot.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                              The views are truly gorgeous . The hamlet is small and the road very quiet. This a place to enjoy natural beauty and commune with nature. There are extensive walks to be made in all directions through forests and fields. The paths are well defined. Despite the feeling that you are a hundred miles from civilization , there is a small town nearby (6 kilometers) that has all amenities including a large supermarket that also sells petrol.
