First, Semur is a wonderful old town with a bunch of excellent restaurants, bakeries, markets and friendly people. It is an old walled medieval city and every turn up the narrow streets is a new photo opportunity. The house sits at the foot of the wall, just across the river. The deck and art studio look right up at the wall. It is a breathtaking location. Yet it is a short walk across the bridge and up the stairs into town. Parking is very difficult at the house and in the city, so it is best to go on foot. The house is quirky, as you would expect in a location this old. It has two staircases leading to different bedrooms. But it is very clean and in excellent condition. It is also very roomy and provides excellent privacy for two couples. This would be a five star location except that the furnishings are a little spartan. A nice sofa and easy chair would add a touch of additional comfort. The owner is very friendly and helpful and communicates well in English. I would certainly stay here again.
The moment we enterend the house we felt like home! Very nice decoration with a few scattered french antiques, great views from the terrace or the windows, beautiful paintings on the walls... Our favorite memories are of time spent on the terrace in the evening enjoying the beautiful view of the medieval city, with a glass of local wine or cup of coffee. The cottage easily slept 5, and was within walking distances of all amenities in town,
We loved Semur En Auxois. one of Burgundy's prettiest and liveliest village. We just crossed the tiny stone bridge down the house, walked up the winding stairs through the ramparts and were in the heart of the old town. where you can enjoy the café culture, restaurants, bakeries, shops or the sunday market with local products.
The surrounding countryside was scenic and dotted with picturesque villages. We used the house as a base to explore the area : the Burgundy canal, the abbey of Fontenay, the vineyards....
I was a little worried about not having a closed parking lot. In fact, parking was easy, safe and convenient in the street. And there was so many things to do by foot.
I would definitely recommend this house for a lovely break away from it all ! Thanks Patrick.
Der Urlaub in Semur-en-auxois war traumhaft. Ein wunderschönes, mittelalterliches Städtchen mit vielen kleinen Gassen, Restaurants etc. Von der Wohnung aus ist man in 5 Minuten in der Stadtmitte. Die Wohnung ist schön eingerichtet, von Föhn bis Spülmachine alles da. Der Vermieter Patrick ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, und kann sehr gut deutsch. Von der Terrasse hat man einen atemberaubenden Blick auf die Stadt, und wir haben es genossen morgens dort zu frühstücken und abends den Tag bei einem schönen Glas Wein ausklingen zu lassen. Semur-en-auxois eignet sich hervorragend um Ausflüge in die Umgebung zu machen da es relativ zentral liegt. Angefangen bei Avallon über Vezelay, das Morvan Djion, Beaune , Schlösser, Kloster und Burgen sind innerhalb kurzer Zeit zu erreichen. Wir haben die 2 Wochen Urlaub sehr genossen und werden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen.
