General Description

This is the ideal family home in the heart of Burgundy. It sits in a peaceful setting surrounded by lush countryside and stunning views over the Morvan National Park, yet within walking distance of a charming market village.

The village is a pretty 20-minute walk away and is one of the largest in the Morvan. It has all amenities including good local restaurants, various boulangeries, butcher, an excellent cheese shop, antique shop and a small weekly market, as well as a large monthly market which takes over the whole village. There are also other pretty walks in the area which lead to the village. It even has a Lido with tennis facilities.

This 200-year-old barn has been restored with care and features many rustic and charming features like exposed wooden beams, stone walls, terracotta floors and a large stone fireplace with wood-burning stove. Modern creature comforts have not been forgotten and include flat screen TV with Bose Home Cinema with I-Pod docking station, Sky TV and Wii.

This house was created for memorable family holidays. There is a billiard table, board games books, boules court, children's swing, Weber gas barbecue and two eating terraces with outside speakers for alfresco dining.

The local area not only offers plenty of typical Burgundian gastronomic delights, but lots of adventure too, from white-water rafting to lazy cycle routes along the Nivernais Canal and rambles in the National Park. The spa town, St Honoré les Bains, with Spa and indoor pool is only seven kilometers away.

This lovely home in the heart of Burgundy is the ultimate family retreat which combines tranquility, charm and modern comfort in an idyllic setting.
