Semur-en-Auxois farmhouse description

Built in the early part of the 19th century, Les Lilas is a classic Burgundian stone farmhouse attached to a large converted barn, recently completely restored by the present owners.

Although totally modernised, Les Lilas retains the features and the feel of its origins. Situated on the edge of the village of Jeux les Bard, in a walled-in south-facing garden, the property offers privacy with unobstructed views across pasture land to the distant hills.

The spacious house, which can sleep 4 in 2 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms (1 en-suite bedroom upstairs with private entrance; 1 bedroom with adjoining shower room on the ground floor) . Many charming features: flag-stone and red-tile flooring; massive beams in the open-plan barn and an elevated terrace.


Pastoral tranquillity between Chablis and Beaune: Built in the early part of the 19th century, Les Lilas is a classic Burgundian stone farmhouse attached to a large converted barn, recently completely restored by the present owners.

Although totally modernised, Les Lilas retains the features and the feel of its origins. Situated on the edge of the village of Jeux les Bard, in a walled-in south-facing garden, the property offers privacy with unobstructed views across pasture land to the distant hills.

The spacious house, which can sleep 4 in 2 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms (1 en suite bedroom upstairs with private entrance; 1 bedroom with adjoining shower room on the ground floor) . Many charming features: flag-stone and red-tile flooring; massive beams in the open-plan barn and an elevated terrace.

Lovely perennial gardens surround the house, and a vegetable garden provides salad and vegetables in season.

Les Lilas: The house is centred on a massive converted open-plan barn with fully equipped kitchen, dining area, comfortable lounge, bar and elevated corner library.

The west wall is entirely composed of French doors and windows, giving on to a furnished elevated terrace with unobstructed views across the fields.

The room features dramatic oak beams and a décor that, while modern, still reflects the 19th century origins of the property.

Off the main barn, in the old Burgundian stone farmhouse, is the main floor bedroom, with adjoining bathroom and laundry.

The second en suite bedroom is accessed by exterior stairs and has a private entrance from a balcony above the main terrace.

There is a small walled in flower garden in front of the house, with perennial beds surrounding the rest of the property. There is a substantial vegetable garden situated near the private parking area.

Markets and tourism: Point of interest:
• Sunday morning, there is a small street market in Semur en Auxois. There are food shops open there as well. There is also a larger market in Chablis, but is a longer drive.
The supermarkets in Montbard and Toutry are open Sunday morning. The village of Epoisses has basic necessities.
Otherwise, the best markets are:
• Avallon is 20 minutes away. The market is Saturday morning, though this is a good town to shop in general.
• Montbard is 20 minutes away. The market is Friday morning.
• Auxerre is an hour away. The markets are Friday and Saturday mornings.
• Dijon is an hour away. Market Tuesday and Saturday morning

  • As is typical in Burgundian farmhouses, the upstairs en-suite bedroom is accessed by an outside stair, hence it has a private entrance. Because of the stair, however, we do not recommend this room for children. High-beamed ceilings and built-in cabinets create an open spacious feel. The downstairs bedroom and bath can be partitioned off to create an en-suite, or the bathroom can be made available to general use. If used en-suite, a foyer opens on to a small private terrace....moreless

Car: Necessary

The village of Jeux les Bard in Burgundy is situated about 300km south-east of Paris. It is about an hour by car from either Dijon or Beaune (by auto-route) and about a half-hour from Chablis cross-country.

It is convenient to 3 interesting towns, each about 15 minutes drive from Jeux. Semur-en Auxois is a fortified medieval gem with good shopping and restaurants. Montbard is located in the Burgundy Canal valley and has many interesting sites nearby (notably the Abbey at Fontenay, Flavigny-sur Ozerain and Alesia, as well as many of Burgundy’s best chateaux). The TGV stops 8 times a day at the Montbard station, with Paris 1h05 away, and London (via Lille and the Eurostar) or EuroDisney is an easy morning trip. Avallon is about 20 minutes away, but boasts a wonderful market and many excellent shops and restaurants. Access to the Morvan regional park is easiest via Avallon.
