Stay at the most beautiful (and most photographed) spot in the charming, tranquil, medieval town of Semur-en-Auxois! This lovely and recently restored house with a large riverside garden, patio, orchard, and vineyard awaits you. Nestled along the banks of the gently flowing River Armançon with spectacular views of the cathedral spires, castle towers, and ancient bridge, the house is just steps away from the town center, offering both convenience and privacy.
Stroll up the winding town stairs to buy your morning baguette or watch the town wake up from your table in a friendly café as you sip your espresso. This extraordinary little town of 5,000 is both vibrant and relaxing, an undiscovered treasure and a world heritage site. Host a party or just relax on the patio of our large, private, walled garden, sample grapes from the organic vineyard, or pick apples, cherries, pears, plums, peaches and strawberries to your heart's delight. We invite you to make our home your own.
Charming Romantic Getaway w/ Quiet Vineyard/Garden: Offering tranquil relaxation an hour from Paris by TGV train and minutes from the cobblestone walkways of the old town center, the location is ideal for your next romantic or family getaway. 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 with the kids. There is a fresh water lake just 3 km away for swimming and boating. There is a Hertz Car Rental agent in nearby Montbard who will drop a rental car off at the Montbard train station for you and a local bike rental agency that will drop bikes off at your doorstep!
Comfortably Furnished: Your home away from home is elegantly decorated to create a warm, comfortable stay. Perfect for small families or two couples traveling together. The house comfortably sleeps 4 - 5, with two large bedrooms plus a sleeping loft. There are new appliances and modern comforts throughout, including towel warmer, shower and soak tub in the bathroom.

Lovely Semur-en-Auxois is a hidden jewel of the famous Burgundy region. There are many nearby wineries and historical points of interest for day trips. Each spring there are music and Medieval festivals and even a horse race through town. There is also a large freshwater lake just 3 km from the house that feeds the Burgundy canals for swimming and boating. The rolling hills and lush country side make for wonderful bike rides.
Although a car is recommended, it is not necessary. The bus stop is about 300m from the house. The TGV Train drops you off in nearby Montbard and during commute times there is a connecting bus waiting at the train station for the 20 minute ride to Semur. For sight seeing, buses to local towns are frequent and inexpensive. There is a tourist office staffed with an English speaker at the town gate (on your walk between the bus stop and the house) which will help you with bus schedules and local attractions.
One hour away by car in the 'grottes' of D'Arcy sur Cure there are prehistoric cave paintings dating back 28,000 years.
Other Activities: shopping, boating on the canals, hiking and bicycles for rent in town.
Year Purchased: 2006
About: We both live in San Francisco, are self-employed, have two children and spend as much time in Burgundy, France as we can...our alternative universe.
Why Semur-en-Auxois, France:
Sarah stopped by this charming little town and fell instantly in love. The first time she brought Ken here, it was so beautiful he cried. Now it is how we balance our busy lives in SF.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love to dine on the patio in the garden with the panoramic views of the towers and listen to the bird song. It is so peaceful and quiet. During the French school year, children's laughter echoes in the valley from the school above. We enjoy the cherries and apples from the orchard, and in good years we make wine from our vineyard.
