About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)
Stroll the narrow, curved streets, walk the ramparts, and listen to the church bells chime the hour.
Our house dates from the 17th century and is situated at the end of the main street in town, right on the ramparts of the village, overlooking a peaceful valley with cows, sheep and grapevines dotting the hillsides.
Les Remparts is available for rent in two configurations—either as a 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath house for 275€ per night or as a 4 bedroom 4.5 baths house for 375€ per night. The 3 bedroom configuration is approx. 2200 square feet and sleeps 6, and the 4 bedroom is approx. 3500 sq feet of interior space and sleeps 8.
The house was featured on the HGTV television series, House Hunters International Renovations (which aired for the first time on November 22, 2014--it is being repeated fairly often--check HGTV schedule), where our creation of two full bathrooms, a WC, and a brand new kitchen was filmed. This renovation is documented on the show, which is episode 4 of the HH International Renovation series.
This spacious house has beautiful meter-thick stone walls and was built in 1628 and 1775.
The THREE BEDROOM configuration for 275€ per night (the 1775 portion--the NEW house!) consists of the ground floor, with an airy lounge off the entry door, with a french door leading to stairs to the garden , a washroom with a shower, washer & dryer, toilet and a SAUNA, our Library Bedroom (bedroom 2) with an en-suite bathroom with a rain shower, toilet and sink in an antique cabinet. There is a brand new, eat-in, open plan kitchen (fridge, freezer, dishwasher, oven & induction cooktop) with a WC under the stairs and direct access to the garden.
Then go up those curving stone steps to our Remparts Master Bedroom (bedroom 1) with a window seat opening on the view over the forest and valley. As you lie in bed, you can look up through a skylight to the stars above. This room has a brand new WC with sink, and a washroom with a soaking tub/rain shower, and a sink in an antique cabinet. This floor also has our “Convent Bedroom” (bedroom 3) which has as one wall doors sourced from a 19th Century Convent. The Convent bedroom can be made up either as twin beds or as a queen sized bed. Guests in this second-floor bedroom can use the WC/sink on the ground floor under the stairs just outside their bedroom door, and will have as their private bathroom the full bathroom on the ground floor next to the sauna.
For an additional charge of 100€ per night, you may rent the house in the FOUR BEDROOM configuration. (I can change the price per night in the payment screen when you send an inquiry for the 3 bedroom config.--just tell me you want all 4-bedrooms.) These 5 additional rooms will be included in the 4 bedroom rental:
The main salon in the "old" house (built in 1628) is reached through a door 6 steps up from the upstairs landing. This grand room with its large fireplace with brand new stove insert, is the perfect spot to gather and relive the magic of your day in Burgundy. There is a terrace deck off this room overlooking the garden and the valley—a perfect spot for a glass of wine!
There is a formal dining hall with huge fireplace and a table for 8, an additional kitchen with full-sized fridge, dishwasher and cooktop, and a full bath with shower and tub all on the main floor. There is a cozy loft/mezzanine/TV room above the dining hall, and a bedroom with a ceiling of the original hand-hewn wooden beams. The roof windows in this room look over the valley, our garden and up the hill to the church.
Adding these additional rooms will allow the house to sleep 8 people.
Our large, delightful garden is full of climbing roses, lilies, lavender and hollyhocks. There is a koi pond with a curved bridge for peaceful contemplation, and tables and chairs for hors d’oeuvres and dinners al fresco!
There is a lovely covered pavilion in the garden, situated to take advantage of the view. Under the pavilion, enjoy sitting on the couches to enjoy coffee in the morning, or a glass of wine in the evening! The view over the rampart walls is unchanged since the middle ages—no modernity is visible!
A 2-minute walk through town brings to you to an “Epicerie” which sells bread, eggs, cheese, milk, wine, canned goods and gift items. Also a 2-3 minutes walk brings you to the farm-to-table restaurant “La Grange” which is open for lunch most days during the summer & early fall, a Vietnamese restaurant, Le Garum, opened recently, and the Abbaye Restaurant is open for lunches and dinners most days of the week. Also in town is the famed Anis de Flavigny candy store, where the little licorice candies are created in an ancient abbey.
A 10 minute drive takes you past the Flavigny Winery (tastings available) to the village of Veneray Les Laumes, with a huge supermarket, a train station and many other shops and services. Twenty minutes away is the medieval town of Semur-en-Auxois, with it’s beautiful stone towers and river.
Flavigny is a 3 hour drive from Paris or the airport, and is 25 minutes away from a TGV High-speed train station which can whisk you into Paris in one hour!
Flavigny is ideally located an hour’s drive away from the charming cities of Dijon, and Beaune, and is within an hour’s drive of the Champagne and Chablis wine areas, and an hour and 15 minutes away from Côte de Nuits, and Côte de Beaune wine regions.
Come to Burgundy and share our little slice of paradise!

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We have always loved France, and have traveled extensively in France throughout our married lives (34 years!). We were introduced to the village by American friends who have a house here, and we fell in love with it. We live in Laguna Beach, California, and have a grown daughter who is a teacher. We try to get to France 5 times a year.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love our house because of the spaciousness and the view. Sitting on the deck with a glass of Burgundy wine and looking out over the valley, it seems like you've gone back in history. The view and the valley are unchanged from medieval times. The sense of history in a house built in 1628 is marvelous. We imagine all of the people who lived here in over the past 400 years, and how difficult their lives must have been, and are extra grateful for our cozy beds, bathrooms, heating and internet connection!!
