Semur en Auxois House Rental Photos and Description

2 BR, 1.5 BA, sleeps 4-5

Stay at the most beautiful (and most photographed) spot in the charming, tranquil, medieval town of Semur-en-Auxois! This lovely and recently restored house with a large riverside garden, patio, orchard, and vineyard awaits you. Nestled along the banks of the gently flowing River Armançon with spectacular views of the cathedral spires, castle towers, and ancient bridge, the house is just steps away from the town center, offering both convenience and privacy.

Stroll up the winding town stairs to buy your morning baguette or watch the town wake up from your table in a friendly café as you sip your espresso. This extraordinary little town of 5,000 is both vibrant and relaxing, an undiscovered treasure and a world heritage site. Host a party or just relax on the patio of our large, private, walled garden, sample grapes from the organic vineyard, or pick apples, cherries, pears, plums, peaches and strawberries to your heart's delight. We invite you to make our home your own.

Charming Romantic Getaway w/ Quiet Vineyard/Garden: Offering tranquil relaxation an hour from Paris by TGV train and minutes from the cobblestone walkways of the old town center, the location is ideal for your next romantic or family getaway. You can explore the lively Burgundy region on day trips by bicycle or car, go wine tasting, hop on a fast train to Paris or Euro Disney with the kids. There is a fresh water lake just 3 km away for swimming and boating. There is a Hertz Car Rental agent in nearby Montbard who will drop a rental car off at the Montbard train station for you and a local bike rental agency that will drop bikes off at your doorstep!

Comfortably Furnished: Your home away from home is elegantly decorated to create a warm, comfortable stay. Perfect for small families or two couples traveling together. The house comfortably sleeps 4 - 5, with two large bedrooms plus a sleeping loft. There are new appliances and modern comforts throughout, including towel warmer in the bathroom.

atmospheric cottage with fantastic view

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
The cottage has a very home-like atmosphere and is full of antiques and personal touches. everything you could need was provided. We loved the view from the dining table and the front bedroom, and also the bbq in the orchard around the corner. There are lovely river walks from the front door for a relaxing evening. The area has a lot to offer: chateaux, villages, vineyards - we easily occupied a week. We would return again. Ken and Sarah are very easy and friendly owners.

The Sweet Life in Semur

  • Stayed: Oct 2012
This was a trip with my daughter, son-in-law, granddaughter and wife to renew our French experiences before another grandchild was added. We spent 3 days in Paris which was wonderful but wanted to experience the slower pace of a small village.
We were in the house in Semur about 3 minutes and my son-in-law questioned why we had spent any time in Paris. The rental was so inviting and engaging we had to pinch ourselves that we were not in a dream. This was all we could have hoped for and more. Every comfort and amenity was met. The house was clean, the beds comfortable, the village within a 5 minute walk. The owners were very accommodating of our 2 1/2 yr. old granddaughter with her sleeping arrangements. We truly felt we had stumbled on jewel. It felt like "home".
All of this is in addition to the friendliness of the neighbors and the acceptance of the villagers. Our time was truly a "moment of happiness".

Wonderful completion to a French holiday

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 20, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
We stayed at the cottage the last 5 nights of a month-long French holiday. The place was perfect for us, quiet, relaxing, beautifully furnished and in a magical setting along the river beneath the village towers. The owners also have quite the library of travel information as well as classics. It was great to just sit with the shutters open listening to a storm rumble through reading a book in the heart of Burgund while enjoying the nice gift basket left for us at our arrival. Life does not get much better than that,

The cottage was a little hard to find at first but only because I did not pay careful enough attention to the directions. Once we were situated it provided remarkable easy access to the village (albeit up 142 steps - good excersize) as well as the surrounding French countryside.

Arrangements were handled by professionally dispite the many changes in schedule that we initiated due to our changing travel plans

Would love to stay here again if our travels take us to this lovely area or Burgundy in the future.

Perfect location in a beautiful medieval village

We have visited Semur-en-Auxois a number of times on day trips over the past 12 years. In 2012 we wanted to find a cottage so we could stay for a week. We chose this property for its close location to Pont Pinard and the amazing views of the town in this area. We are a family 3 adults and 1 young child and were very satisified - from the location to comfort and the range of facilities available. The charming adjacent orchard and vineyard were a bonus and a great place to enjoy leisurely time outdoors in a private setting. Just a short walk over Pont Pinard to the steps leading to the upper town. We would happily stay here again. Semur-en-Auxois is still one of our favourite towns in France.

A Great Retreat

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 31, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
This is very nice accommodation and it exceeded our expectations. We had a fabulous week exploring, cooking, eating out and relaxing by the river bank next to the accommodation with the ducks each sundown, sharing our bread and cheese. There is nothing the accommodation lacked and all things it supported, were well supported. Local information, radio and TV, well utensiled kitchen, bath, laundry, garage - everything was fabulous. The neighbours are nice. Locally there are many restaurants to choose from and the small walk to and from the restaurants is just adequate to walk off dinner each night. You need a car in Burgundy as there is so much to do. There are just so many activities to balance out a relaxing visit. Cycle the canals, markets at nearby towns most days historical visits like Vezelay, the lovely Dijon old town and markets and then there's even a winery or two.

Lovely Semur-en-Auxois is a hidden jewel of the famous Burgundy region. There are many nearby wineries and historical points of interest for day trips. Each year there are music and Medieval festivals and even a horse race through town. There is also a large freshwater lake just 3 km from the house that feeds the Burgundy canals for swimming and boating. The rolling hills and lush country side make for wonderful bike rides.

Although a care is recommended, it is not necessary. The bus stop is about 300m from the house. The TGV Train drops you off in nearby Montbard and during commute times there is a connecting bus waiting at the train station for the 20 minute ride to Semur. Make sure to ask about the conntecting bus when you buy your train tickets. For site seeing, buses to local towns are frequent and inexpensive. There is a tourist office at the town gate (on your walk between the bus stop and the house) which will help you with bus schedules and local attractions.

Other Activities: shopping, boating, wildlife viewing
