About Amanda Opere-Hoyal

We lead busy lives in London and look forward to spending our holidays in Cheilly (pronounced shayee). We have spent many years holidaying in France and now feel like we are coming home as soon as we hit Calais.

Amanda Opere-Hoyal purchased this house in 2003

Why Amanda Opere-Hoyal chose Autun area

Cheilly is a beautiful and unspoilt village, situated away from the main road over a canal bridge. If you're looking for a place to relax and chill out Cheilly is ideal, we certainly unwind as soon as we arrive at our house. The area is a superb location for walking and cycling along the 'voies vertes'. These are wide pathways which run through the village and you’ll be spoilt for choice between the old railway line or the canal path both with a smooth tarmac surface. These pathways will lead you effortlessly through stunning villages, vineyards and rolling hills as far as the eye can see. Near by at St Leger sur Dheune you can hire a barge to explore the Canal de Centre at a more leisurely pace.

What makes this house unique

There are many historical towns within easy reach such as Beaune, Cluny and Autun with many cultural events taking place throughout the year. For shopping, especially bric a brac you are in easy reach of Chalon sur Saone. The autoroute from Calais takes just 6 hours, but should you wish a more relaxing journey, you can travel from St Pancras International to Paris and then take the Eurostar directly to Le Creusot (15 kms from Cheilly). A hire car can be booked before you leave home and collected at le Creusot/Montchanin TGV.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Couple Buckingham May 2014

We cannot say enough about your lovely home! So comfortable and just feels like home. We have travelled over France to stay in gites for many years and whilst many are outstanding, this is the first one we have fallen in love with.

Couple Exeter June 2014

We found the house ideal in every respect for our needs. It is an ideal base for visiting the Burgundy area and provides a quiet haven for resting after more energetic days spent cycling and walking.

Couple July 2014

We have really enjoyed our stay in Cheilly. Your house was perfect.

Couple Chichester September 2014

We've had a wonderful perfect and relaxing week. The weather was ideal and we really appreciated the location and lovely house. It is just right for what we like doing, wine tasting (and buying) and bike rides, though not at the same time.

Two couples West Yorkshire and Cambrideshire October 2014

We have been coming to Cheilly for several years, but this was our first visit to your lovely gite. It's a little like a tardis, full of nice surprises inside.

Maranges Magic

  • 3 of 5

Great location in peaceful village and glorious scenery. Great access to pretty towns and points of interest, helped by a multitude of fantastic cycle routes with varying levels of challenge. Wine-tasting available locally through several small vignerons. Comfortable and well-equipped gite with private garden space. Our one disappointment was our arrival...despite arriving when expected and comfortably within the agreement the gite was not fully ready with cleaners finishing off and a cold feel to the house. This was a bad experience and poor start after a long journey.

Owner's Response: Hi Chris, Thank you for leaving a review, it has been very helpful. I'm very sorry that the house was not ready for you on your arrival and had a cold feel. In future I will ask Paul to put the heating on to warm the house up prior to guests arrival. I will also look into the reason why the house was not ready. We're very glad that you found our house comfortable and enjoyed Cheilly and surrounding countryside. Best Regards Amanda and Will
