Located in a private gated courtyard on a quiet village street, the house has a large living room with a wood stove, a dining area that looks across the fields and vineyards, and a large garden where you can enjoy the spectacular views.

The kitchen is large, airy and stocked with all the equipment you need to create your meals made with ingredients that you purchased at the market or at one of the many excellent grocery stores in the local area. There is a dishwasher in the kitchen, and a washing machine and dryer in the utility room next to the kitchen.

Downstairs, you will find one bedroom and one bathroom, and upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and an en suite bathroom. There is also a second living area that is perfect for reading and relaxing.

The views across to the fields and vineyards are spectacular, and the garden is large and private - perfect for playing badminton or soccer! There are 7 bicycles that are at your disposal - 3 adult bikes and 4 children's bikes - the country roads are quiet and perfect for exploring local villages.

The house is located in an authentic and characterful village on the Route de Cremant in the Cote d'Or region of Burgundy. Strolling around the village, you will see a church that is on the list of Historical Monuments of France, a chateau, an ancient 'lavoir' (wash house), a tree-lined river, vineyards and a winery that produces and sells Cremant, the sparkling white wine of Burgundy. The house is equipped with 5 bicycles, so feel free to cycle into the gently rolling countryside outside the village.

At a short 10 minute drive is the charming market town of Chatillon sur Seine, where you will find all the amenities that you need, including a bustling weekly market, large grocery stores, restaurants, a cinema and lots of little shops and businesses. Chatillon was a residence of the early dukes of Burgundy and has a beautiful 10th century church, interesting walks and historical streets and houses.

Many fascinating and beautiful sites are within an easy drive of the house, including the medieval towns of Dijon and Semur en Auxois, the ancient pilgrim destination of Vezelay, the 12th century Fontenay Abbey, and numerous chateaux and picturesque villages. And, of course, you are very well located for exploring the vineyards of the area, since you can tour the wine roads of the Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune to the south and the area of Champagne a few miles to the north of the house.

The area has many natural attractions, such as the Parc du Morvan, where you can hike, bike or picnic. Of course, you may wish to spend your days relaxing at the house, cooking a fine dinner and watching the star-studded night sky. There is so much to do and see in this wonderful area of France!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We both grew up in Europe -- Daniel in Holland and Juliet in England -- and we now live in Austin, Texas. Travelling in Europe has been a priority for our vacations, and a few years ago, we decided that we really enjoyed the Burgundy region of France for the authentic rural lifestyle, friendly people, beautiful countryside and fascinating places to visit. So we decided to buy a house in Burgundy!

Why the Owner Chose Belan-sur-Ource, France:
When we made our decision to purchase a house in France, Maison Valois was the first house that we viewed, and we immediately decided it was perfect for us and anyone who shared our appreciation for the beauty and tranquility of the French countryside. The house is very comfortable and has a warm atmosphere that tells us that many generations have lived there happily. The village is friendly, safe and quiet, and is located within an easy 10 minute drive of a charming market town that provides guests with all the necessary amenities. We have enjoyed furnishing the house with a combination of authentic French antiques and contemporary comforts. We hope you enjoy your experience in Maison Valois!
