Overview

About the property

Fully Renovated 3 Bedroom Stone Cottage in 2 Acre Private Garden.

River Cottage is excellently positioned on the edge of the tranquil village of Boudreville bordering the Chatillonnais forests in North Burgundy. Ideally placed to discover and explore the region or simply relax away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life!

On entering the main entrance gates, you are welcomed with the beautiful countryside of the Aube valley with its forests and rolling hills. The cottage is set in a private 2 acre park of meadows, orchards and wooded areas and the river Aube which runs alongside the grounds of the property providing a haven for wildlife (trout, deer etc). It has a private south facing garden with secluded patio area and is fully enclosed making it safe for small children. There is an above ground swimming pool of 4m x 2m x 1.20m ideal for relaxing and cooling down.

The cottage itself is a beautiful and historic building, which has been fully renovated by the current owners who have carefully restored many of the original features whilst providing a high level of comfort and space. One of the highlights being the large “Burgundy” style kitchen / dining room and separate sitting room showing original oak beams, large stone fireplace, open stone walls, burgundy floor tiles, and stone cut washing bowl, which historically allowed the release of water under the main window! There are 3 large double bedrooms and a large family bathroom.

A butchers, bakery, grocery store and pharmacy are available in the neighbouring villages of Veuxhaulles-sur-Aube and Montigny-sur-Aube which are only 5 minutes away, with the larger supermarkets only a 10 minute drive at Chateauvillain or Chatillon-sur-Seine. Local vans call at the village during the week with fresh delivery of bread, meat / delicatessen and cheese.

Lovely property in idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to get away from it all then look no further. Its a lovely character cottage that has been thoughtfully renovated. Sat next to a stream, in a huge garden, and on the edge of a stunning forrest its hard to imagine anything more relaxing - particularly if you like spending time outdoors.

The owners live next door so help is at hand should you need it. The village itself is very small (no shop) but with a bit of planning its not a problem - lots of (stunning!) villages dotted around for the morning bakery run. Its like stepping back in time in most respects, but mobile reception is good (as is wifi at the property)

The owners were warm, welcoming and very helpful.

Only thing to look out for if hiking in the forrest are ticks - we pulled about 15 off of our dog in the week we were there so just need to take usual precautions - not a big deal.

Beautiful, calm and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in a perfect setting in its own grounds with a charming river running adjacent to it. Listening to the water whilst sitting outside with a glass of wine..everyday life seems an eternity away..bliss.

Highly recommended for a relaxing quiet getaway

Fabulous Escape

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this fantastic cottage. Paul and Julie are very friendly and I would echo an earlier report in which someone said they were greeted like old friends. It felt like we hadn't been away and look foward to getting back there as soon as we can escape work again!

The cottage is well stocked with everything you could need equipment wise and close to a large Auchan for stocking up with food. There are some lovely walks along the track that runs from outside of the cottage into the forest and if you don't fancy a walk just sitting by the river is relaxing. It's very clean and we would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to family and friends.

We were with two young chlldren who love the place, it is safe for the them playing in the garden, certainly the top main area and we had to vitually drag them away Saturday. Max the dog was a hit and a day didn't pass without them saying hello to him. In fact I've already been asked when we're going back.

In summary I'd say this is suitable to any group that want to get away and relax as well as sample some of the local Cremants etc.

Looking forward to returning soon.

Picturesque cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week at the end of August and it was delightful! A quaint stone cottage by a stream, it feels like a secluded country haven if you want to get away from it all - perfect for reading a book in the sunshine or a barbeque in the evening.

There are shops a short drive away and Chablis is about an hours drive. No wi-fi but wired internet access is provided.

Highly recommended.
