Why Victoria Fernandez chose Pressy-sous-Dondin

I fell in love with this property for three reasons , the views , the quiet and the large garden .

What makes this cottage unique

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 .

Very peaceful - roomy and well appointed accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay in this accommodation. It is in a lovely peaceful rural setting. The house is attractively furnished, roomy and well equipped for around 6 people. However, because of the distribution of space, there is only one bedroom - which is particularly spacious and attractive - and it is hard to see where further people might sleep. It is a few miles from the nearest shops/activities so not for those who need a lot of distractions! It was ideal for what we needed - a get away from it all R & R. The owner lives on the site and was pleasant and helpful without being intrusive.

Tranquillity and sunshine in rural Burgundy.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is fabulously equipped with everything one would need for a superbly tranquil and restful holiday. Victoria had really taken on board the needs of her guests and even provided us with two wonderfully attentive dogs who appeared punctually at meal times on our terrace! We of course succumbed to their French friendliness and shared the odd meal with them but not the wonderful Cremant de Bourgoine that we found in the local supermarche. We had a super stay in this lovely property which was perfect for a couple who love tranquility and easy access to the many interesting Abbeyes and chateaux in the region.

The Abbeys at Cluny and Para Le Monial, the castle at Brancion and the Rock of Solutre are absolute places one must visit. There are great Burgundy reds to have in abundance and Charolais beef for barbecues to purchase in all supermarkets. Naturally we felt that we had a duty to support these local producers! We visited the Saturday market in Beaune which was about an hours drive away and bought the most amazing Goats cheese, artisan bread and charcuterie produce before visiting the Hotel de Deu or hospital with its amazing roof and history. For the visitor who wants both a restful setting and easy access to historical sites Les Marions is perfect!

Splendid views: spacious comfort

  • 4 of 5

very enjoyable. Why 4 not 5 stars is the inconvenience of having to drive to get bread; I don't want to use my car every day.

Welcoming, informed, and also a well equipped kitchen. My only suggestion here would be a small electric blender for soups, smoothies or whatever -- nothing fancy or expensive but v useful. We both would recommend strongly.

Owner's Response: Hello , Thank you for your review . It is true that the house is in the country which explains the peace and quiet as well as the beautiful views. The nearest town with a boulangerie is 7 kilometres away , a five to 7 minute car drive. Many of my guests feel like you and don't want to get in their car every day . Some of them bring bicycles , some buy extra bread and freeze it . Thank you for the suggestion of an electric blender. I had not thought many people would want one but why not ? If it improves the experience of The Cottage then I am all for it ! Cheers Victoria

Victoria was a wonderful hostess. We enjoyed our time at her place, that was very quiet, peaceful and in a great location. It was also nice to visit with Victoria and she gave us plenty of suggestions on where to go. Her place is highly recommended, very clean, comfortable and felt like home. We really liked our time with you and your pets. Thank you for everything!! Sincerely, Paul & Ann

Rural Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Les Marions was "just what the doctor ordered". A charming converted cottage, equipped to a high standard and set in a very peaceful rural location yet within easy reach (by car) of a number small towns with lots of stunning historical sights to see

The cottage is so very comfortable and full of character with a sunny terrace looking out across the countryside that it is tempting to just sit and relax but with Victoria's helpful suggestions of sights to see and places to eat we ventured out most days and found lovely quiet towns like Cluny and Tournus as well as bustling places such as Chalon Sur Saone and Beaune to explore.

The surrounding countryside is ideal for walking and cycling but being there during a heatwave (34 deg) we opted to visit medieval abbeys, chateau's and enjoyed the Caberet Evening show at the Cluny National Stud.

Victoria is close by and discreet but very willing to answer any queries.

We would thoroughly recommend Les Marions as an ideal location for those wishing to immerse themselves in the beautiful rural countryside and local cultures whilst "recharging your batteries"
