About the Property

Single-level gîte for 2 people with own garden, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom

Lying on the edge of a quiet village called Viserny in a rural river valley given over to small-scale, hedged livestock & arable farms dotted with woodland & the occasional vineyard, this property has its own walled garden. Converted in 2011, the “Joli Regain” is a cosy, modern & comfortable, single-storey holiday rental suitable for two people. It has a professionally-fitted, fully equipped kitchen, one double (or twin if preferred) bedroom & a bathroom with spacious modern shower. Unusually for Burgundy, there are no steps into or inside the building; its design is open plan, with a large living area & plenty of light being provided by large south-facing windows & French doors leading onto the garden. “Le Joli Regain” comfortably accommodates people of reduced mobility - in order for us to make your stay as comfortable as possible, please let us know at the time of booking.
Enjoying the tranquillity of a rural setting, this gîte is also within easy reach of some important tourist sites, the A6 & A5 autoroutes & Montbard high-speed (TGV) station. Dogs welcome, provided they do not get up onto the bed oro ther furniture! Gated parking off the road.
Owners usually on site - help or advice, if needed; otherwise we'll leave you in peace!

WINE LOVERS* - if you are interested in buying Burgundy wines, we can put you in touch with a bilingual colleague who runs private wine tours and/or tastings in the region.
BIRD WATCHERS* - we know a local bilingual enthusiast who can accompany you on a CYCLING or WALKING trip (half or full day).
HOT AIR BALLOONING* is also a possibility - early morning or evening - weather & number of passengers permitting.
* The above activities need to be booked before arrival.

VISERNY (population 200) is situated in the Auxois area of the Côte d'Or 'département' of Burgundy, between the towns of EPOISSES (12km), SEMUR-EN-AUXOIS (12km) and MONTBARD (14km).

EPOISSES, world-renowned for its pungent and creamy AOC (PDO) cheese, also has a small château open for visits.

The medieval, walled town of SEMUR-EN-AUXOIS, sitting atop a pink granite promontory above the River Armançon, is very picturesque with its ramparts, towers and cobbled streets.

Overlooking the Burgundy Canal, MONTBARD has a high-speed train (TGV) station - with a journey time of a little over an hour, a day-trip to PARIS is perfectly feasible. There are also less frequent (but also direct) services to Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport or Lille.

Also in the area, the interesting cities of DIJON & AUXERRE are just over an hour's drive away. After visiting the ducal palace & doing some shopping in DIJON, you may like to take a drive along the 'Route des Vins', do some wine tasting and visit Clos de Vougeot.

BEAUNE, 'capital of BURGUNDY WINES', takes fractionally less time to reach and will satisfy lovers of wine, food & history alike!

To the north-west of Viserny, the vineyards of CHABLIS, IRANCY & SAINT BRIS are also within easy reach.

Places of HISTORICAL INTEREST in the area include ALESIA, where the Gauls made their last stand against Julius Caesar in 52BC and the superb UNESCO World Heritage sites of FONTENAY ABBEY and the hill & basilica at VEZELAY. The Forges de BUFFON, Burgundian Renaissance châteaux of TANLAY & ANCY-LE-FRANC, half-timbered houses & atmosphere of NOYERS-SUR-SEREIN, hilltop, fortified village of CHATEAUNEUF-EN-AUXOIS and hilltop village of FLAVIGNY-SUR-OZERAIN (used as a set for the film 'Le Chocolat') are also worth visiting.

Bsides this, we're spoilt for choice for colourful markets, including AVALLON, CHABLIS, MONTBARD, SAULIEU and even BEAUNE & CHALON-SUR-SAONE.

If you enjoy more NATURAL & LOCAL PURSUITS, the immediate area around Viserny is ideal for walking, running and cycling; the mostly hedged lanes are very quiet with numerous walking paths across a mixed landscape of small-scale arable & livestock fields and wooded areas. Birdwatching is another rewarding activity.

Not much further away, you could take a picnic with you to the MORVAN natural regional park, more locally swim or rent a pedalo or kayak at Semur's Lac de Pont or follow part of the BURGUNDY CANAL along the European 'VOIE VERTE' cycle path.
