About the Property

Huge 1 Bedroom renovated cottage

Commune with nature and feast your eyes . This is a renovated farmhouse in a tiny hamlet on top of a hill, with stunning panoramic views.
Set on a 3 hectare property next door to the owner's house , it has its own huge South facing terrace, large table and chairs , sun umbrellas and BBQ facilities. Your views look down to a large water feature , forests and far distant mountains .

Please Note: Because Of The Depth Of The Water Feature, I Do Not Accept Bookings For Children Under The Age Of 10

Note : The owner has 2 very friendly golden retrievers and a cat . Any, or all of these animals might visit you to make friends . As they are all on very strict diets I ask my guests to kindly refrain from feeding them any treats.

'The Cottage layout : upstairs : 1 large double bedroom and huge bathroom with shower , washbasin and toilet
Downstairs:, huge open plan modern kitchen/dining room, living room with a new leather sofa, a laundry and a downstairs toilet. Satellite TV, CD player

Equidistant between Charolles and Cluny , and 30 kilometers from the wine regions of Vire Clesse , Pouilly Fuise and the Beaujolais hills . There are prehistoric caves at Aze , and at Bergeserin (10 ks) an adventure park for the brave at heart. Walking is the most popular passtime in the area with hundreds of kilometers of tracks in forests and tiny country lanes.
Fishing is another activity keenly supported by the local community. Maps and permits are easy to obtain at the local mairie. If you want history , the Chateau of Cormatin is only 20 minutes drive away with it's medieval kitchen gardens and 16th century interiors it is a 'must see' in the area. The tourist office at Cluny has a list of Chateaux to visit in the area. Cluny itself is a lively town with the remains of the largest church in Christendom still very evident in the main square.

Why Pressy-sous-Dondin, France:
I fell in love with this property for three reasons , the views , the quiet and the large garden .

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The views are truly gorgeous . The hamlet is small and the road very quiet. This a place to enjoy natural beauty and commune with nature. There are extensive walks to be made in all directions through forests and fields. The paths are well defined. Despite the feeling that you are a hundred miles from civilization , there is a small town nearby (6 kilometers) that has all amenities including a large supermarket that also sells petrol. * Star gazers take note ; As there is little extra light the night sky is easily vewable .
