    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5
    A charming cottage with a large private garden and stone patio terrace, just at the walls of a medieval village in the heart of Burgundy. You can have a bucolic country experience, while enjoying village life. Our lovely home is just a five minute walk from the center of the cobbled village of Semur en Auxois, which has restaurants, shops, bakeries, butchers, an old church and beautiful and historic architecture. The village has ramparts and old towers. There are walks everywhere and plenty of other marvelous sites to drive to - villages, churches and vineyards. The famous "route des grands crus wines" is only 45 minutes away, as is the historic town of Beaune.
    The house has two bedrooms and two floors. It is fully furnished and has a wood burning stove upstairs. there are bikes...

    Additional Location Information
    Downstairs you will find a cozy living / dining room connecting to a fully remodeled kitchen, which opens up onto a lovely terrace with stunning views of the medieval town. On the other side of the living room is a double bedroom and a full size bathroom. French doors open out onto a balcony which looks up at the manor houses above the ramparts. There is a winding staircase that leads upstairs to a cozy living room with exposed wooden beams, comfortable seating, and a fireplace. That's where we keep the television and a second stereo system with plenty of French cds to get you in the mood. There is a second bedroom and half bath upstairs. There are also two nice couches and a daybed. The upstairs and downstairs have an entirely different feel. Both are charming and every window offers a spectacular view of the medieval town of Semur Auxois.

    The terrace leads down to a large private garden with fruit trees- pear, quince and cherry--and a giant chestnut tree nestling a treehouse....

This gem of a house is located conveniently across the small river which meanders round the Medieval hill town of Semur en Auxois. The lawn reaches down to the river and from the east facing terrace outside the kitchen door one can look up to the ramparts the old town towering above you. This terrace is a sun trap for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The evening view was my favourite as the sun lit up the town walls and buildings which reach up to the church and other ancient town buildings across the river
Less than 100 yards across the river by the old bridge there are steps winding up through a break in the walls leading into the centre of the old town where there are a small supermarket, baker, butcher, touristy shops and banks. The centre also has cafes and restaurants and it would be possible to have a great stay without getting into the car – as long as you were game for the steps.
We loved the house too. It is tucked off a lightly used road and well away from the...
