About the property

Le Petit Village

Coach House and Spring Cottage are two homes from home in the heart of the Yonne region of Burgundy. Each rental has it's own garden & orchard, shared use of a heated swimming pool , wifi and fresh croissants delivered to your door! They are both open all year and are equally perfect for autumn and winter breaks as both cottages have heating throughout and a wood burning stove. Perfect for families, friends or couples!

Coach House and Spring Cottage form part of the overall property called Le Petit Village which consists of the our home, and the two cottages. All three properties are set within a large enclosed courtyard where you can also park your car, making Le Petit Village an excellent holiday for families with young children. As we live on site, we are here to welcome you and to help you with any everyday enquiries. We deliver your morning bread, but we will also leave you alone to enjoy your holiday!

A car is necessary as distances between places are quite long, there is no public transport and the nearest shops are 5km away.

There is shared use of an outdoor heated swimming pool in an enclosed corner of the the grounds of Le Petit Village. Free Wifi is also available. We arrange a daily morning delivery of fresh bread and pastries direct to your door!

We're open all year round! We have two friendly cats and an affectionate Border Collie and your pets are also welcome at a small extra charge. Although there are no shops in our village ( apart from our little gift shop and tea room!) we organise a daily bread delivery hung on the door of your cottage in time for breakfast!

BED & BREAKFAST: Subject to availability, if you're just passing through on the way to the Alps or the south coast of France, we can offer bed and breakfast and an evening meal.

We are stone's throw from the Burgundy canal which is wonderful for cycling and long walks in the wide open peaceful countryside. In the summer, with the cottages are covered with Virginia creeper and surrounded by flowers, they are romantic, very comfortable and well equipped and with free 24/7 wifi access throughout the property.

The surrounding area is not only rural tranquility, but has some world class heritage nearby; the UNSECO Abbey De Fontenay, numerous chateaux, two of the "plus beaux villages de France" of Noyers-sur-Serein and Flavigny, plus the vineyards of Chablis and Cote D'Or and Cote De Nuits all a short drive away.

Lovely home in Burgundy

  • 5 of 5

We spent several days with Nick and Annabella while attending a wedding in Burgundy. Annabella kept us supplied with goodies from the local boulangerie along with homemade jam. There was a table in our private garden and we had access to the swimming pool. Couldn't have asked for a better stay!

Our First Trip To Burgandy...

  • 4 of 5

After many years enjoying French holidays without a pet we thought that finding a good standard dog friendly place to stay would be difficult. How wrong were we. The Coach House at Le Petit Village is a wonderful high quality cottage with all the necessary home comforts that you would want from a holiday let. Annabella and Nick ensured we recieved the warmest of welcomes and gave us good advice of places to visit within the area. The cottage had everything needed including a lovely large private garden for relaxing and enjoying evening barbeques. The pool area is of a high standard and very child friendly. The Coach house in Le Petit Village is very well placed for visiting local places of interest including Chablis, local markets and vineyards. We would definately recommend a visit to Le Petit Village and hope to return one day.

Howard,Dee,Ray, Lesley and Ollie the dog!!!

Sehr schöner, entspannter Frankreich-Urlaub

  • 4 of 5

Nick und Annabelle sind die perfekten Gastgeber, sehr angenehme und persönliche Atmosphäre. Die Verständigung auf Englisch ist sehr angenehm für Urlauber, die nicht so gut französisch sprechen. Sie geben Tipps / Empfehlungen und regeln Reservierungen, z.B. für Kajaks oder Fahrräder.

Wer mit Kindern reist, findet in den Kindern von Annabelle und Nick tolle Spielgefährten. Ideal ist das Cafe, das Annabelle mit viel Liebe betreibt, der frisch gebackene Kuchen ist lecker.

Wir mieteten das Coach House. Optimal ist, dass hier der Garten direkt hinter dem Haus ist und mit drei Schlafzimmern genug Platz für eine große Familie ist.

Der Pool ist einzigartig, sehr gepflegt und mit toller Bepflanzung des Bereichs. Auf der Website gibt es ein paar schöne Fotos.

WLAN kostenlos - tolles Angebot.

Ein Wermutstropfen sind die nahe liegende Bahnlinie und die Straße direkt vor dem Anwesen. Stündlich fahren je ein Güterzug und ein Personenzug vorbei und auf der Straße sind wochentags einige Laster unterwegs. Wer also die volle Ruhe sucht, wird hier nicht zufrieden sein, uns hat es nicht gestört, da ansonsten die Erholung perfekt war. Trotzdem daher ein Stern Abzug.

Die Gegend ist sehr ländlich, aber es gibt sehr viel zu entdecken. Sehr schön ist, dass der Burgung-Kanal fußläufig für Spaziergänge oder Radfahrten erreichbar ist. Ancy-le-Franc (5min mit Auto) ist ein kleines aber hübsches Städchen mit allem, was man zum Einkaufen braucht und einem sehr sehenswerten Chateau.

Von uns klare Empfehlung...

Agréable maison - excellent accueil

  • 3 of 5

La maison est conforme au descriptif, agréable, avec un grand jardin, mais ce dernier n'est pas entièrement clos, il donne également sur celui des propriétaires (au fond uniquement), ce qui a été gênant pour notre chien, que nous n'avons pu laisser en liberté.

L'intérieur est très spacieux, et la literie de qualité, un plus également pour les draps et couettes également de qualité. Seul bémol, il n'y a pas de volets, et il faudrait des rideaux occultants pour les chambres, car nous étions réveillés par le jour.

Présence de savon, dans chaque salle de bain, et toilettes, sac plastique dans les petites poubelles, c'est un plus !

Par contre, le ménage (50 euros) est obligatoire par une personne extérieure, (nous ne le savions pas, car souci avec envoi du contrat) à défaut cela devrait être inclus dans le prix de base, afin de ne pas avoir de mauvaise surprise.

Annabella et Nick ont repris cette activité il y a 10 mois, et donc encore quelques incohérences entre ce qui est mentionné sur Abritel et le contrat final, cela devrait s'arranger. Ils sont très gentils et à l'écoute des besoins, Annabella fait un excellent gâteau, à découvrir dans le salon de thé !!!! NOus leur souhaitons réussite dans cette nouvelle activité.

PS : également un plus, la livraison le matin, à notre porte de croissants et pains qui sont très bons

The Yonne region of Burgundy has something for everyone; beautiful landscapes, great cycling and walking, world class wine, a rich and vibrant history and traditional cuisine; and not forgetting Burgundy's famous white Charolais cows! The countryside is a mixture of vast open fields of wheat, barley and sunflowers, rolling hills, large forests, vineyards, rivers and canals. Fulvy is a charming medieval village and provides an ideal base for exploring the region. The famous vineyards of Chablis and historic chateaux and abbeys all within easy reach. There are lots of good family friendly restaurants in the area. The Burgundy canal and the Armancon river are just a 3min walk away from Le Petit Village, ideal to have a picnic, paddling or for long walks or cycling. There are lots of activities for children in high season including horse riding, swimming and kayaking in the river. Weekly wine tastings are organised at Le Petit Village in the summer months and we can also give you lots of recommendations for local producers.

There is a daily morning delivery of bread and pastries to the door of your cottage.
