Semur-en-Auxois cottage description

Nestled beneath the ramparts of the medieval town of Semur en Auxois, this former fisherman’s cottage has been restored with style by Patricia and local craftsman. Oak, local stone & family antiques add to the character and charm of this ‘petite maison’.

Once you walk through the little red garden gate, the ‘petite maison’ and its setting capture your imagination with breath taking views of the river and beyond.

This very special garden, enclosed by a stone walled on one side and the river on the other, the leafy green garden and the river carry you away to a world of your own.

Perfect romantic getaway. Great for relaxing and be away from it all. WiFi connection!.. So you are not completely disconnected!
Patricia warmly welcomes you

Car: Recommended

Its location gives you the best of both worlds, calm & tranquillity amongst the natural surroundings on the terrace or in the garden but, within a two minute walk you can be in the centre of town with all the local activity, weekly market, shops, cafes and restaurants etc.

Semur itself is a favoured and well positioned destination of many visiting the region. This medieval town is ideally set between Chablis to the North and Beaune & Dijon to the South with local Vineyards of Auxois close by, providing a perfect location for the wine & food lover. Historical villages and sites are also in abundance and within easy reach - Fontenay Abbey, Flavigny, Bussy Rabutin, Les Forges de Buffon, Vezelay, Epoisse, Chablis, Wine route. Plenty of local walks to discover the Flora and Fauna. Special visitors come in the garden - Ducks and heron.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Hello, my name is Patricia. I lived abroad most of my life, USA, Portugal... and I spend 12 years in the UK. I worked in Sales and Marketing in the IT Industry and I now teach English and French. I moved to Burgundy in 2010 and renovated 3 gites, I am also the founder of 123lang.com and provide immersion classes in French and English.

Why the Owner Chose Semur-en-Auxois:
I fell in love with the cottage as a child, the cottage was a family property. The house at the time was a fishermen's cottage with stone floor, no water nor electricity. I decided to renovate it and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
