4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Montpont-en-Bresse, Saone-et-Loire, Bourgogne-Franche-Comte
The beautiful old house is a restored, rustic watermill situated in the heart of the Bresse region in Southern Burgundy peacefully set between the mountains, lakes and waterfalls of the stunning Jura region on the one side and one of the powerhouses of French winemaking, Burgundy’s Côte D’Or, on the other.

Interaction with guests
Guests will find a small welcome package and a useful handbook on how to use the mill. We usually stay in close touch with our guests and friends at the beginning, provide them with directions, suggest restaurants and can be reached any time. We also like to stress the fact that the mill is in a calm, rural setting. We have a lovely neighborhood: not only busy farmers, but also animals foxes, fawns, birds, beaver rats, fish, horses, cows and their dung - thus we're in pretty natural surroundings.
