About the owner: We fell in love with Semur-en-Axois and travel there several times a year. We enjoy biking, hiking, gardening, wine tasting, wine making, fine dining, learning the French language, and experiencing the French lifestyle. We started Share Maison in order to share this magical place with others through fractional ownership. We have found that by returning to the same beautiful location during different seasons builds more vivid memories from which we are nurtured during our busy city lives the rest of the year. We are proud to have restored and preserved this historic property.
Why the Owner Chose Semur-en-Auxois, France:
We have traveled the world, and when we stumbled upon this hidden treasure, this charming, lively little town, we had to be part of it. It is incredibly peaceful there. We are wine enthusiasts and have been making attempts of coaxing some drinkable wine from our small vineyard. We love harvesting and enjoying the seasonal fruit from the orchard, as we know you will, too. The town is about an hour east of Paris by nonstop TGV, easy to get to and smack dab in the middle of the Burgundy wine and cheese making region. The house is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac that offers both peaceful tranquility and easy access to the town center. The entire town is an historic monument status and yet still retains a vibrant local culture with modern amenities and restaurants open all year. Once you visit this enchanting, tranquil, and friendly town, you will understand how we feel.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This house has both the feel of a French country farmhouse and pied-a-terre in town. Children's laughter echoes down from the primary school up on the ramparts above, punctuated by sounds the busy ducks on the lazy river below. The views from our property are some of the most photographed scenes in all of Burgundy. The visual beauty is stunning and inexhaustible! A few steps along the river brings you to our cloistered vineyard, fruit orchard and garden, where you can enjoy quiet meals from our patio with stunning tower views. During the summer months, there are weekly festivals in town as well as wine events at local wineries in the fall. The town has an historic Italianate Theatre, which hosts musical concerts and other events throughout the year. The town is well situated for wine and cheese tasting day trips, and there is huge freshwater lake nearby for swimming and boating. You may want to hang out in the local cafe in town and soak up the ambiance of the local culture, take in a current run film at the local movie art house, or rent bikes to explore ancient ruins and ride along the famous canals of Burgundy at Motbard. During the summer months, there is even a bike rental shop that will deliver your bike to our doorstep! The Abby of Fontenay, also classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site like the entire town of Semur, is just a 30 minute car ride though the lush, rolling farmlands surrounding the area. Whatever your unique taste, this town has much to offer.
