About the property

Secluded within it's own orchard with the sound of birdsong, croaking of frogs in the mill pond, scent of wild herbs and views southwards down the valley to the nearby vineyards and rolling hills of Burgundy.

The massive medieval walls above of Flavigny- where the film "Chocolat" was shot - will draw you in to discover artists shops, restaurants and the ancient abbey where they still make the famous aniseed pastilles.

This stunning 2 bedroom cottage of exceptional charm, entirely renovated to an exacting modern standard with considerable flair, will seduce you with it's atmospheric feeling of peace and contentement.

The cottage is on 3 levels ; the attic twin bedroom has an old beamed ceiling with a roof window making it light and airy. There is a seperate toilet and washbasin making it ideal for children or adolescents.

On the middle level there is a fully fitted kitchen with all modern appliances, eating area and sofa.

On the lower level, that can be accessed by the oak ladder or by going outside, there is the double bedroom, an ensuite shower, toilet and washbasin and double doors that lead out to the terrace and garden.

The garden has several mature fruit trees, help yourselves to make apple or cherry tarts, everything you need can be found in the house.

There is a bar b que for hot summer days, sun lougers and a good selection of deck furniture. If you are looking to sunbathe or read a book in the shade you will find plenty of choice in the garden, pots of flowers and bird watching could also inspire you to paint....

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is out of sight of other properties and lying in the valley below the un spoilt hilltop village of Flavigny (shop, church, Carolingian crypt, ramparts)

Accommodation is small and favours the sprightly, being 3 single rooms vertically ordered and joined by steep internal stairs (or you walk around externally). Fun though, and it allows fir 2 patios for relaxing and taking meals. Everything works well, even if the Wifi is unsurprisingly prone to cut out, and the building has been refurbished with quality finishes and good taste.

An ideal place from which to visit abbeys, chateaux, lovely villages and small towns plus Dijon and Beaune are all amid glorious countryside and the usual half-empty french roads.

Louise made us feel very welcome and we'd definitely recommend this property.

The property was lovely. Everything we had expected plus extras.

  • 4 of 5

The property was very well equipped and the environment was gorgeous. Everything we needed. No problems with the cottage at all. We were a little disappointed with the facilities in Flavigny. We had been told that there were 2 restaurants available and a bar/pub. When we got there we found out that both restaurants only opened at lunch time and there was definitely no bar. All very nice and quiet but not what I had been led to expect. Never mind we are resourceful and ate in every night which, because of the lovely weather etc was most enjoyable. Flexibility is the key word when doing self catering holidays we have found!

Possibly later on in the year the one larger restaurant will be open in the evening. We went mid June which should have been O.K. and I had checked but hey ho. Overall an excellent place to stay for a week but do suggest the description on facilities in the village should be reviewed and expanded upon re dates of opening etc.

A Nice Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a great little cottage in a beautiful setting.

We stayed as a family of 3 + a dog.

The cottage itself is small but well designed. It has a well kitted out kitchen and we cooked some great meals there. The stairs are more ladder like and would be difficult for anyone with mobility issues or small children but our 4 year old managed fine. The shower is great - plenty of hot water and powerful.

We took the owner up on the offer of a meal and some local wine and it was a welcome sight when we arrived after a long journey. The food was great and we would recommend.

My only disappointment was a note in the brochure when you arrive advising you are expected to clean the place in full prior to leaving or pay an additional fee. We did speak to the owner who advised that if we put everything away and swept up it would be ok and we received an e-mail reminder about this prior to departure.

Overall a great place.

Amazing stay in Flavigny

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about Louise's place in Flavigny, truly a dream getaway. Stayed for two nights and didn't want to leave! Communication from Louise was timely and clear. As some of the other reviews have mentioned we opted for a meal prepared by Louise on the first night...delicious! The pictures hardly do it justice and only a short walk up the hill to quaint village of Flavigny. This is French country perfection! Would love to visit again!

Beautiful Burgundy cottage

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I (plus our small dog) enjoyed a fantastic week at this beautiful cottage in Flavigny sur Ozerain. Owner Louise was away on holiday herself during our stay, but all communication before and during was great, and her friend came round at a mutually agreed time to check all was well. We opted for the pre-prepared homemade Burgundian meal on our first night, which was left in the fridge for us on arrival and was lovely after a long day of travelling. The

cottage is full of character and very well-equipped and clean. It is situated in a very peaceful location and it's an easy walk up to the village. We were very lucky with the weather (heatwave!) but the master bedroom, being on the ground floor, stayed lovely and cool. The area is beautiful and there's loads to do. The local vineyard down the road produces lovely wine and is very friendly. We will definitely be back. Thank you!

This is a wonderful cottage, cleverly modernised across 3 floors (although as a couple we only used the lower two), beautifully situated only minutes walk from the lovely village of Flavigny sur Ozerain yet in a private secluded spot.

It is very well equipped and was perfectly clean on arrival (something we haven't always found in French gites). The area is gorgeous, there are numerous chateaux within easy driving distance and Beaune and Dijon are only about an hour away.

Communication with Louise was problem free and the payment process and arrival and departure arrangements were smooth.

The only possible wrinkle is that there are steep stairs between the three floors, which whilst no problem for most people could be problematic for some older or less mobile guests. it is worth noting that external access is available to the ground and first floors, so those stairs can be avoided if you wish.

If you want to stay in this area (and frankly why wouldn't you!), then this cottage is about as near perfect as you'll find.
