This restored 17th Century Farmhouse features the chestnut beamed ceiling 'a la Francaise', hand hewn stone walls, low fired floor tiles and antique furniture of the period. In a small hamlet in the National Park, Le Morvan, the House is very peaceful with a remarkable view of Autun & the vineyards of Burgundy far below the mountain top where it sits. It is in a tiny hamlet on a one lane road that leads you through a forest to a river & waterfall with some terrific walks right from the House. The house is wheelchair friendly.
Burgundy is known for its excellent wines & gourmet foods & restaurants. Autun is a walled city rich in Roman & Gallic history with magnificent ruins and a Roman Theatre still in use today! The outdoor markets are a treat, the shopping elegant and comparatively inexpensive, with lots of delightful small villages & vineyards to visit. The farmhouse is 1 km from the closest restaurant, 2km from the closest village & 8 km from the super market for shopping for provisions.
The National Park is so pristine that it has unusual wildlife not found elsewhere in Europe. It is a popular area for outdoor sports in France, a destination for hiking, biking, horse-back riding, fishing, swimming, rock climbing and more!
At 345 Km from Paris, it is a short drive from the airport (3- 1/2 hours), & is also easily reached by flying to Geneva (a 3 hour drive), Lyon (a 2 hour drive), or Nice. The climate is temperate since it is on the Mediterranean corridor.
The House has 2 bedrooms; one with 2 beds and each with an armoire and closet. The living room has another bed. There is a bathroom & separate W.C. as well as a laundry room. The House has a private garden with fruit trees and garden furniture.
