About Philippe Martyniak

We are a couple and own the Gîte de La Lampisterie. We live in Lyon with our 2 children where we manage an interior design and illustration agency in Croix Rousse. We often go biking, rollerblading, Nordic skiing and go hiking in family along the canals and the Green Way. We chose this area after discovering the Burgundy region and the Green Way and La Lampisterie seduced us as a holiday house.

Philippe Martyniak purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Philippe Martyniak chose Saint-Gengoux-le-National

We chose this area after discovering the Burgundy region and the Green Way only 1 h30 from Lyon. While we were hiking, biking and rollerblading on the Green Way, we came upon the “For sale” sign and an improvised visit with the owners, a Swiss couple, did the rest.

What makes this cottage unique

The delicate renovation of these beautiful volumes with 4-m high ceilings, an ironwork in the bathroom and simple and relaxing furniture in the functional former style of this place appease us. We hope to share this serenity with our guests and we are sensitive to the preserved architecture of this station house.

Besondere Unterkunft zum rundum wohlfühlen

  • 5 of 5

Die Lampisterie ist ein besonderes Ferienhaus in einer sehr schönen Umgebung. Die Einrichtung ist sehr geschmackvoll und hochwertig. Das Flair eines alten Bahnhofsgebäudes ist wirklich einzigartig und bietet an sich schon sehr viel zu entdecken. Wir haben insbesondere den schönen Garten und die toll ausgestattete Küche intensiv genutzt. Einzig der Grundriss ist vielleicht etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig. St. Gengoux ist zwar ein recht kleiner Ort, bietet aber alles für den täglichen Bedarf. Wir haben den Urlaub sehr genossen !

Magnifique !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passés vraiment des bonnes vacances dans une ambiance extraordinaire. Il nous n'a pas manqué rien du tout. La Lampisterie est un endroit très calme et sans agitation où on peut laisser son esprit vagabonder.

Les renseignements et conseils donné par Phillipe était d'un grand secour pour nous. On y retournera.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This is an excellent Gîte, with great kitchen and cooking facilities, and a pleasant lounge/dining area. The owner was also a pleasure to deal with. However, the 3rd bedroom, which is accessed from outside but without its own bathroom, would not make it ideal for large families wanting to use this room. The Gîte also has a great shower, but the bath is in a semi-open bathroom outside the main bedroom. I recommend that you study the layout of the Gîte carefully. Having said this, the Gite was ideal for the two of us, and the easy access to the Voie Verte right outside the door was fantastic. There is plenty of room for bike storage. We had a great Sunday lunch at the Hotel de la Gare, 50m from the Gîte, before that closed for 2 weeks. We enjoyed our stay at La Lampisterie, but have only awarded four stars for the overall score as there was nowhere to eat at night in St. Gengoux-le-National: we expect to have reduced dining options at this time of year (20th to 27th September), but to have all the restaurants closed in the evening (due to all the restaurant owners taking their holidays at the same time) was a great disappointment, and rendered the Taxe de Sejour somewhat of a joke!
