Set on a 3 hectare property next door to the owner's house , it has its own huge South facing terrace, large table and chairs , sun umbrellas and BBQ facilities. Your views look down to a large water feature , forests and far distant mountains . Note: Because of the depth of the water feature, the cottage is not suitable for children under the age of 10.

There are prehistoric caves at Aze , and at Bergeserin (10 ks) an adventure park for the brave at heart. Walking is the most popular passtime in the area with hundreds of kilometers of tracks in forests and tiny country lanes. In Summer there is a donkey that can be hired for the day to carry provisions for your picnic along with maps to help you find your way . If you wish you can hire a horse and cart to carry you through stunning landscape at a gentle pace. Fishing is another activity keenly supported by the local community. Maps and permits are easy to obtain at the local mairie. If you want history , the Chateau of Cormatin is only 20 minutes drive away with it's medieval kitchen gardens and 16th century interiors it is a 'must see' in the area.

About Victoria Fernandez

I have spent the last 20 or so years in France , I came here in 1990 with my partner looking for a typical French holiday house. We traveled all over France and almost gave up until we stumbled on this relatively unknown part of Southern Burgundy. It was so beautiful with the lovely forests, hills and hedge groves and the traditional stone houses.The wine is fantastic too... It was perfect for us. We settled to living here 6 months of each year. As we were both artists , he a painter and I a photographer we had the luxury of being our own boss.

Victoria Fernandez purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Victoria Fernandez chose Chiddes

I had been looking for a property with enough land to keep my horses for a long time. One day my cleaning lady asked me if I knew anyone who wanted to buy a house. Her father had died and her mother wanted to move to town so they were selling the house that had been in the same family for nearly 200 years !

I went to see it . The house was a complete wreck but the view was staggering. I fell in love with the property on the spot.

What makes this cottage unique

The views are truly gorgeous . The hamlet is small and the road very quiet. This a place to enjoy natural beauty and commune with nature. There are extensive walks to be made in all directions through forests and fields. The paths are well defined. Despite the feeling that you are a hundred miles from civilization , there is a small town nearby (6 kilometers) that has all amenities including a large supermarket that also sells petrol.

A recommander!!

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine très très agréable chez Mme Fernandez. La maison est arrangée avec beaucoup de goût. Rien ne manque. Elle est agréable, et jolie comme tout. Nous avons pu souper tous les soirs sur la terrasse en utilisant le bbq au gaz très fonctionnel. La région est magnifique. Nous avons fait des balades, du vélo, du golf, des visites de châteaux etc. Mme Fernandez est extrêmement gentille et discrète. Par contre toujours prête à nous donner des renseignements utiles. cette maison est certainement à recommander!!

Owner's Response: Bonjour Merci pour votre gentille commentaire . J'espère de vous revoir un jour à The Cottage . Bien a vous , Victoria

A wonderful recreative and inspiring stay

  • 5 of 5

The holyday cottage is wonderful for friends of old houses in combitation with modern convenience in a harmonic landscape. The house is ample, aesthetic furnished and also a pleasent and clean stay at cold and rainy weather. The heating is good, the kitchen good appointed, sitting on the patio and looking into the landscape is the greatest. Everything is as discribed, sometimes even better. Unfortunately we could not swim in the pond. Our charming landlady Victoria gave us any information we needed, hints for good restaurants and maps for hiking. We found guides and brochures in the cottage for our planing.

We thank Victoria that we could take part of her little paradiase. May be we will come again.

Owner's Response: Dear Margarete, Thank you very much for your review. I enjoyed meeting you and look forward to welcoming you back someday. Have a lovely autumn season. All the best, Victoria

Delightful cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is an exceptionally well equipped, tastefully furnished, comfortable and well looked after gite. The view is very beautiful even in the cold and wet during our stay!

The owner is charming and discreet. Although her house is very close it is a lovely stone building which just adds to the remarkable view.

We would give the whole location 9 out of 10.

Amazing Cottage Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cottage for our honeymoon and it was perfect. The property was clean with a very well equipped kitchen which felt like a home away from home. The bed was very comfortable, as was the sitting room which has a DVD player and satelliteTV including English channels! The setting was perfect for us - very quiet in the middle of the countryside with lovely walks on the doorstep. You need a car to get to the shops, but there are villages nearby, the biggest of which is Cluny which has everything you need and a beautiful abbey.

The grounds are lovely with a pool that has frogs. We spent some happy hours trying to get the pefect photo but they were a little shy!

The owner was incredibly freindly and helpful, taking us on a walk one day to show us a good spot for a sunset photo! All in all, we will be returning and we would highly recommend this property to other people who want a peaceful and relaxing get away.

Hier ist Entspannung angesagt

  • 5 of 5

Diese Unterkunft ist sehr zu empfehlen für Menschen, die sich ausruhen wollen. Das Haus ist für zwei Personen (und auch für drei Personen noch) sehr großzügig. Die Räume sind groß und sehr komfortabel eingerichtet. Die Küche ist mit allem Nötigen ausgestattet und bietet viel Platz zum ausgiebigen Kochen. Es gibt drei Gasflammen,eine Elektroplatte und einen gut funktionierenden Backofen. Auch eine Mikrowelle ist vorhanden. Im Wohnraum kann man sehr bequem sitzen, fernsehen oder Musik hören. Aus der Küche und von der Terasse hat man einen wurnderbaren Ausblick über die Landschaft. Dort kann man stundenlang einfach nur sitzen und gucken.

Die Vermieterin ist sehr nett und steht zur Verfügung, wenn man sie braucht. Ansonsten hält sie sich zurück. Die Hofhündin ist sehr lieb und schließt die Gäste sofort ins Herz. Kuscheleinheiten inklusive.

Man braucht definitiv ein Auto, um die nähere Umgebung zu erkunden. Für sportliche Gäste ist die Boulangerie und der Supermarkt im nächsten Ort auch per Fahrrad erreichbar.

Wir hatten einen sehr angenehmen und erholsamen Urlaub und würden gerne wieder in dieses Ferienhaus fahren.
