Nestled beneath the ramparts of the medieval town of Semur en Auxois, this former fisherman’s cottage has been restored with style by Patricia and local craftsman. Oak, local stone & family antiques add to the character and charm of this ‘petite maison’.
Once you walk through the little red garden gate, the ‘petite maison’ and its setting capture your imagination with breath taking views of the river and beyond.
This very special garden, enclosed by a stone walled on one side and the river on the other, the leafy green garden and the river carry you away to a world of your own.
Perfect romantic getaway. Great for relaxing and be away from it all. WiFi connection!.. So you are not completely disconnected!
Patricia warmly welcomes you

Why the Owner Chose Semur-en-Auxois, France:
I fell in love with the cottage as a child, the cottage was a family property. The house at the time was a fishermen's cottage with stone floor, no water nor electricity. I decided to renovate it and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
