Cluny farmhouse description

Set in a beautiful valley facing Mont St Cyr, the highest point in southern Burgundy, this characterful 18th century farmhouse provides the perfect place to relax and to explore the surrounding area. Only 15 minutes from historic Cluny the house offers accommodation for eleven people in five lovely bedrooms (three en-suite). Every room offers panoramic views across the surrounding countryside. Downstairs is a large fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, fridge/freezer, cooker and a long table which comfortably seats twelve. The relaxing and spacious living room, with its enormous stone fireplace, comfy sofas, rocking chair and book cases, presents the perfect setting to unwind. On cooler evenings, simply enjoy the glow of a real fire. The orchard makes a wonderful setting for dining al fresco. The swimming pool is floodlit giving an opportunity to take some exercise or simply drift on a hot afternoon. There is a large brick built BBQ for outdoor cooking close by the pool.
