Le Coin Tranquille-Numero Six
from £22 /night help
Bungalow | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Our spacious house is on the edge of the village. Backing on to farmland, the views that extend for miles up and down the valley.
Relax in the large enclosed garden. Although you might need to use the shade of the trees as it is bathed in sun all day. Cool off in the small splash pool and then barbeque your favourite steak .
A two minute stroll will take you to the river and play area. Fish, paddle or watch the canoeists .Watch the boats navigate the lock on the nearby canal.
A short drive will take you to all amenities. Two bakers provide bread and the most wonderful pastries six days a week.
You'll find two large bedrooms that enjoy the view, one with a king-size bed and the other with two singles. Both rooms have ample space for a cot -provided. The double bedroom has a new en suite attached to it with power shower.
There is a family bathroom, the one room we left untouched as a reminder of the home's previous ownership. This has a deep bath with overhead shower, wash basin and wc and enjoys a decorative style that can only be described as belle époque!
There is a door separating this bathroom and the second bedroom with the rest of the hall,so it can become an en suite to that room if wanted.
The kitchen has a dual fuel cooker plus washing machine, microwave, fridge and table and chairs if you opt for breakfast indoors. Across the hall from the kitchen, double doors open to welcome you into the main reception room.
Past the dining table and chairs is the sitting area with a three seater settee and double sofa bed and ample room to bring in some of the occasional seating should you want to.
Entertainment indoors is provided by a television –with sky freeview. a DVD and video player, a hi-fi unit, and a selection of books, board games and jigsaws. There are plenty of CDs and DVDs to choose from. From either of the patio doors you can get to the front or side patio with tables and chairs for dining or relaxing.
All the accommodation being on one floor (albeit up a set of shallow steps through the front garden with a hand rail) may help those families who have problems with mobility.
The property is suitable for families with young children ,although supervision is advised in the front garden for the smaller ones.

So, what are you going to do each day?
As much or as little as you like is the best answer. If you're an early riser, start by listening for the boulangerie van that brings fresh baguettes and croissants as well as milk etc. to your door at 8:30 every morning (except Monday) and enjoy breakfast in the early morning sun on the balcony at the side of the house. You might then choose to shop in one of the weekly markets held in many of the beautiful old villages in the area or visit a local chateau. For example the World heritage site at Fontenay or the UNESCo site at Vezelay. Go back in time and fight the Romans at Alesia.
If the bustle of a larger town appeals Auxerre ,Chablis , Beaune or Dijon are all within an easy drive. If you'd like to look for wild deer and boar, go white water rafting or explore 225,000 hectares of forests, rivers and lakes head for the Morvan regional park. If you want to go further afield, drive through the spectacular Jura mountains to Switzerland.
Families will find plenty to do with a Zoo, three lake beaches -including one with pedaloes- about half and hours drive away. Nigloland and a fascinating dinosaur park are about one hours drive away. Go underground to see the second largest cave painting in France
The TGV stops 15 kms away in Montbard, catch it and you're just over an hour either from the delights of Paris or the alternative delights of Disneyland Paris. In the house are a selection of guidebooks and suggestions if you want some inspiration.
If, on the other hand you'd rather not be occupied, don't feel bad. Who could blame you if you just want to enjoy the tranquillity of the house and the village with a good book and a glass of wine or spend the day snoozing in the secluded garden under the shade of a weeping willow while the kids play badminton or boules. Your only decision might be whether dinner is to be a barbecue of locally bought Charolais beef followed by possibly the best cheese you've ever tasted made in the local village of Chaource or an evening with the locals spent in the comfortable surroundings of L'Hotel du Pont's restaurant.
To the south east of Auxerre you'll find a village where things seldom change. Because of the importance of its architectural heritage ( the church crypt dates from the Xth century) the Maire's office has to approve even such things as a change to the colour of the paintwork of your house.
Through the village runs the Armançon river, where you can wade in the shallows, enjoy a drink or an ice-cream from the bar or just lean on the parapet of the 14th Century stone bridge that crosses it and take in the view. If you're a fisherman you can (depending on the season) buy a licence at the tabac and try your luck .
A hundred and fifty yards away the Canal de Bourgogne flows at an even more leisurely pace. Depending on how energetic you are, decide between a picnic on the grass while you watch the lock-keeper operating the “ecluse” for the narrowboats, or a stroll of two or three kilometres along the tow path for a drink in one of our neighbouring villages, Ravieres or Perrigny. If you'd like the drink without the distraction of the walk, drop in to L'Hotel du Pont which houses our other village bar and the “tabac”.
The footpath that runs aongside the canal has recently been updated . Ideal for cyclists and walkers alike. The woods adjacent to the canal offer miles of tracks for walking and hiking .Look for the chateau hidden amongst the trees as well as the wealth of widlife [check on the hunting seaon though!]
Bikes can be hired from Ancy- Le -Franc or Montbard - can be hired by phone .

"Peaceful stay in quiet village"
Very French house in quiet village. The baker honks his horn at 10 in the morning and there are a restaurant opposite the church and a playground across the bridge. That's about it, but perfect f… More
