After travelling for 5 months I was looking forward to a place where I could relax away from thr rat race of the 21st Century. I certainly found it in this lovely cottage in Bligny-sur-Ouche
This two bedroom cottage , with up to date English appliances, spotlessly clean and beautifully appointed comfortable furniture was much appreciated by this weary traveller.
We were welcomed by the owner and made to feel very much at home. The Welcome Basket was a great idea as we settled into the house. This gesture is a sign that the owners care about their visitors and sets a high standard of relationship.
The house has everything that we needed and it was a joy to always come back after a day on the roads to a pleasant environment.
Location was excellent , being in a small French village surrounded by history, forrest and rivers.
Ideal place if you have a small car as it is in easy reach of the major attractions of the area.
I have no hesitation in recommending such a beautiful cosy cottage as a treasure to be enjoyed.
We stay in June 2014 booked it in Australia and from the start the line of communication was first class Helen was fantastic with this. The three of us arrived after a long drive greeted by a welcome smile and provisions including wine, mineral water, cheese, biscuits an excellent welcome pack. The house as previously described is lovely. We struck a little heat wave and although fans are supplied they did not get turned on. The bedrooms are large and beds comfortable. Bathroom spacious includes seperate bath and shower. Very quiet location with two large loung suites English TV and full kitchen and laundry with everything needed. As previously stated the locationi is great with Beaune a stone throw away. This is a great house and you will want for nothing. The town is also well equipped with a large supermarket and post office, bakery, bistro and numerous other shops including a medical centre. We highly recommend this house for your stay.
A great place to stay. House is spacious and beautifully presented. The village location is lovely and the surrounding countryside beautiful. The house is well appointed and we would recommend it to anyone looking in this area.
We rented this property to have a family holiday whilst combining a visit to relatives who live nearby. The house was a charming, traditional French property decorated in a modern, sympathetic way. We were particularly impressed with the cleanliness. We stayed with our one year old and I was also pregnant at the time. There was plenty of room with very good sized bedrooms and the house was well equipped for our little tot with a good solid stair gate downstairs. There is a small outside space at the front of the property which was adequate to have a relaxing glass of wine in and for our little one to play but would be a squeeze if you had older children who needed more room.
The local amenities are good - there is a big supermarket nearby which is within walking distance in the village and also a couple of shops and bars. There are beautiful walks surrounding the village and the local town of Beaune is stunning and highly recommended. There is also an unexpected steam railway nearby which was great fun!
We will most definitely be staying again we had a wonderful holiday and it will still be perfect for our expanding family.

This was our second visit to Burgundy but our first to Bligny sur Ouche and this fantastic property.
Situated in the heart of Burgundy, Bligny is a great base to explore the area with some fantastic walks in the surrounding hills.
The property itself suited us compleatly. It was clean, well appointed, situated centrally to the village and provided us with everything we needed for our two week stop. The owners (one English) could not have been more helpful providing lists of shops, points of interest, restaurants and the all important wine producers (free tasting!).
We cannot recomend this super place to stop more - there is so much to do in this area we will be returning.
