About the property

HOUSE OF CHARACTER 3 bedrooms, barn and garden, village, coffee, river & canal

Eighteenth-nineteenth HOUSE OF CHARACTER with barn and shady garden, in the heart of a pretty village with a café-restaurant, surrounded by fields, the river and the Burgundy CHANNEL. Charming & simplicity, fireplace & pigments, stones and wooden beams ...

Easy house to live. Ideal for families with garden, playground along the river, swings, canoeing, superb aquatic center 15 minutes ...

It's so cool to go just opposite the house, for a lunch in the café-restaurant or take away dishes to enjoy in the garden... So cool to prepare your own picnic or aperitif above the river just on the other side of the bridge...

With BURGUNDY CANAL 200m is paradise cycling with your own bikes or those rented via tourist office.

Some hosts even chose the train + taxi + bike rental, delivered to the village! Groceries? In villages around by bike, or just "home" thanks to the various deliveries by van (baker, butcher, grocer) as before!

A charming haven for relaxation or visit the area (Abbey of Fontenay, Vezelay, Semur, Chablis, Alesia ...) 1 hour from Paris by TGV!

Countryside with UNLIMITED INTERNET...


The house can comfortably accommodate 6 or 7 people with 5 rooms (115m2 in total including 3 bedrooms) and 200m2 garden. It is a practical house with charm, for those not seeking luxury.

LOCATION week from Saturday to Saturday, unless otherwise agreed.

1- In ground-garden: 1 bedroom with sink and bed 140, barn with garden furniture and barbecue. Access from the garden.

2 - On the main level:

large kitchen (gas, freezer, conventional oven, dishwasher), lounge with fireplace, bathroom with tub and toilet.

3- On the upper floor, two bedrooms:

- Room 1 with bed 160cm + two trundle beds of 90cm.

- Bedrooms 1 double bed 140 + 90 + crib.


It is a house with no TV, no microwave.



This old house also has a special feature in the two upstairs bedrooms, the floor "sings" a little underfoot. This is not the case of the room on the ground floor.

There is also the church bells may wake up in the morning! The Angelus is at 7 am ... It can be appreciated or not ... or even not notice !!

About Christelle Willemez


Here is a host in her first steps with HomeAway ...

Born on April the 1st, from a military father and a mother born artist.

I inherited the rigor and imagination, practicality and taste for beauty - sweet mix !

My activities have led me from marketing... to theater and therapy. Wonderland!

I love nature and I love Paris. I like to meet and exchange with people and I like silent retreats. I like to eat and drink and I like sobriety. I love the abundance and I love parsimony. I like action and I like meditation. I love humor and I like depth ...

My favorite phrase at the moment:

" These are not the things that trouble us, but the opinion they inspire us. " Epictete.

And Bam!

Welcome here in anyway, you should feel good there ...

Christelle Willemez purchased this house in 2001

Why Christelle Willemez chose Cry

A lovely house in a lovely region that allows the daughter of a military father to "take root "... after so many relocations!

Happiness to share this place with my friends and careful hosts, loving old stones ...

What makes this house unique

Charm, tranquility, authenticity, simplicity ...

Stylish and homely holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We really loved staying in the house. The kitchen wants for no utensils which is rare, and we had the space to chill out and enjoy the amazing surroundings. The house itself is set back from the road and enjoys a generous and private garden with lots of shade, and is conveniently close to the village bar/cafe which will serve beer to take away if you ask nicely.

There are good bike rides to be had locally, both for hardened cyclists, as well as more gentle and flat rides to do along the canal.

Christelle is a wonderful host who is responsive to questions and quick to contact back in the event of any issues you may encounter.

Generally everybody we met in this region was insanely friendly - but they may have been fixating more on the baby than us.

This property is thoroughly recommended.
