Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 7 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Semur-en-Auxois, Cote d'Or, Bourgogne-Franche-Comte
Escape to our holiday rental home in lovely Semur-en-Auxois in the heart of the Burgundy countryside. Sip wine and sample local cheeses and boulangerie treats on our riverfront patio; retire to either of our two bedrooms (each with en-suite bathrooms) after a day of sightseeing and gastronomic delights.

Our two-bedroom, three-bathroom house is situated directly on the banks of the Armançon river, with spectacular views of the medieval town ramparts through the weeping willow trees that gracefully drape their boughs over the river's calm water.

Getting to the house is easy -- only an hour from Paris on the train (2.5-hour drive), or a 4h15m drive from the Le Havre ferry port. The house is the perfect base for exploration of the local countryside, from the vineyards of the Cote d'Or to the gorgeous wilderness of the Morvan nature...

The house is quirky, but charming and in such a beautiful location. We went with another couple and the house was plenty big enough. The downstairs bedroom isn't connected to the house, but we soon got used to popping up to the kitchen for our...More

Additional amenities & feature info
The house offers modern amenities including high-speed wireless internet, French and English satellite TV, a washer and dryer, and a fully-equipped kitchen including a dishwasher. Both of the bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms, and there is also a main bathroom with a large soaking bath.

About the neighbourhood
Semur-en-Auxois is a medium-sized town with a charming village feel. The people are friendly and helpful, and the town clearly cherishes its history, ranging from its role in World War I to the story of its once-powerful castle (now evidenced by the stunning ramparts visible from the house). Semur is known for being one of the most picturesque towns in Burgundy -- and yet it is also a thriving, modern town with all the amenities you will need during your stay.

Any of the several boulangeries can provide you with your morning croissant, and you can sit and enjoy it at one of many cafes while you people-watch. You can purchase supplies at one of the full-sized grocery stores, or you can shop at smaller specialty shops: meat from the butcher's, cheese from the deli, wine from the excell...
