About the Owner

Where to start, my wife Debra and I are the owners of the holiday home you're looking at. It's my fault that we spend most of our free time in France as I used to cycle race in Brittany in my younger days and loved the whole cultural experience. The subsequent revisits to see old friends hooked us into the lifestyle and created the desire to own a property there. After exploring all corners of France we settled on South Burgundy, which from the UK is both accessible, and at the same time enjoys generally better weather giving you a definite feeling of being on holiday. We love being there, but like most UK owners can't be there all the time due to work commitments.

Perfect holiday home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This year, 2016, was our fourth stay at "Les Champs de Cloux", what more can one say?

it is a marvelous property situated atop a hill above Couches. Views from the garden are superb particularly early morning with mist rolling across the valley below.

The villa is modern and equipped to a high standard with all that is required for a wonderfully relaxing holiday. The kitchen is complete with everything needed for preparing lovely meals to be eaten on the garden

terrace. However, the area is also full of excellent restaurants along with numerous chateau, markets and with many beautiful walks.

Wine production predominates and during late September the vineyards are full of pickers and the roads are busy with tractors transporting the grapes. An superb time for wine tasting at the vineyard.

"Les Champs de Cloux" can be easily summarized as a perfect holiday home in a perfect location...

From the Owner

We found this house listed in the village notaire's office on the last day of a property searching trip, it had no pictures just a description, 'Pavilion, deux chambres, belle vue'. We drove up to have a look. Although neglected for some years the views were indeed amazing and I knew with a lot of hard work we could make it a lovely holiday retreat, we were smitten.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Lyon at 185 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Couches at 2 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Autun Golf Course at 20 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Beaune at 38 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Couches at 2 Kilometres Car: necessary


By car from Calais taking the A26 to Reims then onto Beaune it is around 640Km in total. See the further details section for a more detailed route description.

Paris Orly is around 3 hours by car, Lyon a little closer at around 2 1/2 hours.

There is a new service from Southampton to Dijon by Eastern Airways where it will only take about an hour to reach the house.


Couches (5 minutes) - Has everything you are likely to need for everyday life.

Autun (20mins) - Quiet Medieval/Roman town, very historic. Markets on Wednesday and Friday mornings.

Chalon sur Saône (20 mins) - Excellent old town centre, good shopping with lots of boutique style outlets.

Beaune (25 mins) - Saturday morning market including regional produce, very chic with some beautiful architecture.

World renowned vineyards (25 mins) Meursault, Pommard, Montrachet and Volnay.

Further Details:

Travelling by car.

Crossing the channel using either the Dover to Calais car ferry service or the very convenient Euro Tunnel, it’s then around 6.5 – 7hrs driving depending on rest stops. Some SatNavs will show routes through Paris, which may indeed be the quickest if there is no traffic, but this is rarely the case. Perhaps on a Sunday or very late at night, 10.00pm onwards, but at peak times it can be horrendous.

The preferred and much less stressful route is to take the A16 towards Reims, I would recommend a stop at Tinqueux J22, where you can refuel at Carrefour and there are plenty of outlets to have lunch.

Then set your SatNav to Eguilly 71490 and you’ll take the A26 towards Lyon and get off the toll road at Beaune, and then enjoy the scenic run in down beautiful tree lined roads past the famous vinyards of Pommard and Montrachet.

More specific directions will be included in your booking confirmation.


Eastern Airways are now offering flights from Southampton to Dijon, with departures on Mondays, Fridays and Sundays. It’s then just 50 minutes to Couches.

If not convenient, then there are flights to either Lyon (St. Exupery) or Paris (Orly). It takes around 3 hours from either along the motorway to reach the house.

From the Owner

We have tried to create a comfortable contemporary and uncluttered holiday home that you can relax into. We love to relax on the south facing terrace peering into the far distance and soaking up the lovely views. If you like a peaceful holiday, enjoy culture and a slower pace of life, good food, wine and friendly local people you will love spending some time around this area..
