“Stunning garden and house in a fantastic setting”
The garden is stunning with mature trees and lawn leading down to the canel. We spent most of our time eating outside in the sunshine. The house is very comfortable with plenty of local chracter and we were made to feel very welcome on arrival. The local town is a gret place to go a sit in the sunshine with a glass of wine. We would very much like to go back again next year.
“Perfect place to stay”
My wife, our dog and myself spent one week in the house in May and we found the house better than we expected. Sometimes pictures of vacation houses on websites can be misleading, but in this case the photos showed the reality: the house is a real paradise. The beautiful park (it's more than just a garden), the location directly at the canal and the friendly and helpful neighbour Serge (who prepared the house for our arrival in a perfect way) made our stay there a real relaxing, nice week. Thanks to the good weather we could stay outside most of the time and in the evenings we liked to cook on the great gas stove in the well equipped kitchen. The beautiful vineyards in Santenay and the surrounding villages invite for degustations and buying some tasty Burgundy wines. There are several good restaurants in short driving distance and you can cover your daily needs in the boulangerie and the little supermarket in Santenay. We can recommend the house 100%.
After staying 10 days in Paris this was a lovely country retreat - an easy 3hr drive from Paris down the A6. We were travelling with a 9yr old. House suited our basic needs - grass area, boules, rowboat, hibachi style BBQ, woodfire, eat inside or outside, Monopoly on rainy days, easy drive through vineyards, to different villages & markets, 15-20 min from Beaune. We found the Chagny & Sat Beaune markets best. It was lovely in the mornings to open the bedroom window, lean on the windowsill, listen to the bells and watch the boats go past on the canal. The canal is not that busy so the accommodation still feels private. So peaceful & very relaxing. You can easily row along the canal 15min, moor the boat and walk into Santenay. This is a comfortable clean & relaxing house to stay in and we would certainly stay again...given the opportunity.
The property is set in a very peaceful garden by a canal. It is a very quite and private location. We enjoyed the closeness to the town of Santenay and other surrounding attractions. The rides along the canal were particularly enjoyable. You can hire bikes at the tourist info centre in Santenay. If you want something that is very French and private this Cottage is ideal.
“Super querky place to stay and play”
Three couples and three Morgans visited for a few days in a very cloudy May but what fun we had! Morgans didn't like the bumpy steep exit onto the road but loved the drives through the vineyards. Used the boat to ferry across the canal and row left to moor so visits to Santenay possible. Lovely restaurants, boulangerie, wine tasting (buying), little supermarket and tourist office at the station where you can hire bicycles.....what more can you want? House full of character with ropes to help you up the stairs. We all want to return in the sunshine when our boules don't sink in the mud and we can really enjoy the setting.
“A lovely holiday experience, with great facilities”
The garden has a very good outlook over the nearby canal, and watching the craft negotiate the waterways creates a serenity around the place. The house is very comfortable, and has a very rustic feel. The staircase is a challenge for some but is fine once you have become accustomed to it. Having satellite TV and wifi is a big bonus. There are plenty of places to visit and Beaune and Dijon afre well worth seeing. The market in Chagny on a Sunday is well worth the short drive. A car is necessary, and be aware of the challenge of the driveway to find and exit - again, fine once you become used to it. A perfect location for a relaxing break and a taste of this wonderful region.
“Charming canal-side house”
This is a lovely, comfortable house with light and airy bedrooms and is well-equipped and very clean. The location can't be bettered. The garden has beautiful views over the canal and it is delightful relaxing, watching the boats go by and waving to cyclists as they pedal down the tow path on the opposite bank. There are 2 tables with chairs outside so you have a choice for eating outside in the lovely grassy garden. There are loungers with plenty of comfortable cushions and there is nothing better than settling down with a book in the sunshine and whiling away the afternoon. As far the local restaurants, we were spoilt for choice! Nearby Chagny has a great market on Sunday morning. If you are feeling a bit more energetic then Beaune or Dijon aren't far away by car - or Autun with its Roman amphitheatre and medieval cathedral. We have been to this house several times - and keep coming back!
“Charming, beautiful house. Perfect.”
A great house in a lovely location. The photos just don't do it justice. The house is quaint and charming. The outdoor space is amazing and the beds are very comfortable. A car is necessary but the walk to Santenay is short and pleasant. Great for visiting the vineyards! There are two great restaurants in the village and the boulangerie/ patisserie is lovely (but not open Wednesdays). This property is great for families or close friends- the showers are in the bedrooms so you need to be friendly! We spent a great week here, 8 adults and there was enough space. A great location for vineyards and climbing.
