Stay at the most beautiful (and most photographed) spot in Burgundy, nestled in the charming, quaint, peaceful medieval town of Semur-en-Auxois!
Our lovely restored cottage with a large, detached riverside garden, patio, orchard and vineyard awaits you. On the banks of the gently flowing River Armançon with views of the cathedral, castle towers, and ancient bridge, the house is just a stroll away from the town center.
The location offers convenience, privacy, and off-street parking.
Walk up the gently winding stairs around an ancient Burgundy tower for your morning baguette or croissant, or watch the town wake up from your table in a friendly café as you sip your first espresso of the day.
This enchanting little town of 5,000 is both vibrant and relaxing, a hidden treasure. Host a garden party or just relax on our large garden patio with stunning panoramic views of the towers, pick flowers for your table, and when in season, sample grapes from our organic vineyard, apples, cherries, pears, plums, and wild strawberries to your heart's delight. The detached garden/vineyard/orchard is 60 steps from the house along the river (which keeps the ants in the garden, not in the house!)
Offering tranquil relaxation an hour from Paris by TGV train and minutes from the cobblestone walkways of the town centre, the location is ideal for your next romantic or family getaway with the dog.
You can explore the lively Burgundy region on day trips by bicycle or car, go wine tasting, hop on a fast train to Paris or Euro Disney for the kids. There is a fresh water lake 3 km away for swimming and boating. There is bike rental shop in Montbard that will deliver rental bikes to the house and a rental car can be delivered to the Montbard train station for your pick up and return.
Your home away from home is comfortably decorated to create a warm, cozy home base for your Magical History Tour of the Burgundy Region. Perfect for small families and the dog or two couples traveling together. The house comfortably sleeps 4 - 5, with two large bedrooms plus a sleeping loft. There are modern appliances, washer and dryer, a towel warmer in the bathroom and a soak tub.
