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.

Sincere thanks for having given us the 'loan' of Spring Cottage for this week. It is a charming delightful place to spend a holiday. The warmth of your welcome and your interest in our welfare has been greatly appreciated. We loved visiting various places of interest you recommended and will go home with many happy memories.

'Lovely cottage, lovely weather, very relaxing time. The wineries were great and the little villages quaint. Great place to come to from the other side of the world. Helena and Moe are the perfect hosts.'

Beautiful and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We thought the Spring Cottage had everything we could want until we saw the amazing breakfast Annabella brought in the 1st morning. The cottage was spacious, comfortable and well-appointed. We made dinner for ourselves one night after going to the local farmers market (wonderful produce) and then relaxed outside in the beautiful courtyard garden while their very friendly dog Jester entertained us. The location was perfect for short days trips driving through the beautiful countryside to several places we were interested in seeing. Loved meeting Annabella & one of her daughters. We would love to return one day since we decided the only complaint was that we weren't there long enough. Thanks again, Annabella, for everything!

We loved it all!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in September and it was a fantastic and relaxing time. Spring cottage is nicely furnished and very comfy. Both bedrooms -really comfortable beds- have spacy en suites and showers, one of them is very big. And the owners are the nicest and friendliest you can wish for. It is comfortable, historically interesting with beautiful countryside to explore. Thank you.

Tolle Gastgeber, toller Pool.

  • 5 of 5

Eine sehr schöne Anlage, die sich nur zwei Parteien teilen. Die Vermieter bewohnen selbst das Haupthaus und unterstützen wo sie können. Sie sprechen perfekt englisch. Tipps jeder Art, wie in einem Tourismusbüro, stehen zur Verfügung. Sehr angenehm ist, dass der Poolbereich durch eine Tür (Thema Kinder) abgegrenzt ist. Die Anlage ist sehr familienfreundlich. Der Pool ist top gepflegt! Das Grundstück selbst ist auch vollkommen umzäunt. Die Wohnungen sind sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet.

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.
