Further details indoors

This house is furnished and equipped as our second home, so everything you would expect to be here, is here. We have French and UK FTA TV, a DVD player, CDs and a music system, books, games, jigsaws. In the kitchen, there is also a coffee maker and a food processor. If you want to try some of the local recipes, there are English and French cookbooks. There is a telephone for incoming calls only.

Further details outdoors

With large terraces east and west, there is a set of garden furniture for each. In the garden, there is also a stone table with benches, giving superb views across the valley. You can breakfast on the east, lunch in the garden, and have your evening meal on the west terrace, making the days go well. There is a basketball ring, a badminton set and a boule set. Part of the garden is laid out as a boule court! Large gates close off the property from the road, and provide security, with space for several cars to park. PIR lamp helps when coming home after dark.

Further details

The east terrace and the steps from it leading to the garden are unfenced, so we do not feel the house is suitable for young children. The property is looked after by our French neighbours, who are willing to help and advise if necessary. There is a list of emergency numbers in the house. There are two steps from the drive to the terrace, with a small step into the house, but we have had wheelchair users who found them easy to negotiate

The Burgundy region

Burgundy is famous for it's wine, and Cote d'Or produces some of the best known in the world. It is also well known for it's gastronomy, from escargots to Epoisses cheese, enjoyed by many, including Napoleon. Other specialities are andoulliettes, jambon persille, cassis, anise.

There is an enormous range of buildings, secular and sacred, all beautiful, sites ranging from pre-history to modern times, museums, art galleries, etc.


Courcelles-les-Montbard is a small, friendly village halfway between Montbard and Veneray-les-Laumes. Itis reputed to be the home of the Bussy family, whose descendant is Debussy, the composer. It has a 13th century chateau and church, with some interesting polychrome statues. One was discovered last year and is being renovated.

The Burgundy Canal runs alongside the village, and provides easy walking and cycling. Bikes can be hired in Montbard, which is the nearest town, with shops, supermarkets and restaurants. It has a traditional jazz festival in late June, holds magnificent fireworks displays to celebrate festivals, and has an interesting museum and art gallery.

On Friday there is a large open-air market in the square, mainly selling clothes, books, jewellery, and there are lots of stalls selling a wonderful selection of meat, fish, bread, vegetables etc in the Market Hall. Nearby is the Abbey of Fontenay, a very calm and relaxing place to visit. Veneray-les-Laumes is close to Alesia, the site of the defeat of the Gauls by Julius Caesar in 52 BC. There is now a magnificent centre showing lots of details about the siege, with plenty to keep everyone interested. The town has a large supermarket, a range of shops and several restaurants. Flavigny of Chocolat fame is not far, nor is Semur-en-Auxois. Further afield Dijon, the home of the Dukes of Burgundy, has beautiful buildings, a magnificent art gallery, shops and restaurants. Beaune is the centre of the wine industry, has a good market on Saturday, and again lots of shops and restaurants.

Auxerre and Avalon are not far, and well worth visiting. Further south, Autun has a Roman gate and an amphitheatre, Saulieu has Bernard Loiseau's restaurant if you are feeling very rich, but is also the gateway to the Morvan, an enormous area offering lots of outdoor possibilities.

At Bibracte, there is a large Celtic site. North of Montbard, Noyers-sur-Serein is a very picturesque town, and not far away is Chablis, the northernmost wine area. Vezelay, site of the original call for the Crusades, is very interesting, and worth the steep climb. There are many more places within easy reach, and there is a basket of leaflets in the house for you to choose where to go.
