NEAR CHABLIS, ON THE PROPERTY OF A 18 C. WATERMILL WITH HEATED SWIMMING POOL.

Vermenton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4, 1 Bathroom

Previously named Le Petit Moulinot, La Tourelle was a granary which was renovated and comfortably furnished to accommodate four guests.

The cleverly designed kitchen is built into the shape of the tower. On the ground floor, the living room with wood beamed ceiling overlooks the South facing terrace and private garden beside the mill pond. The wooden staircase in the living/dining room leads to the first floor and the attic style bedrooms, one twin and a king double with adjacent small turret dressing room. The bathroom has a bathtub with shower and the wc is separate. This property features WiFi Internet access.

La Tourelle is set in fourteen acres of green grounds, bordered by its own millpond and the River Cure. The 10m x 8m solar heated swimming pool is sunk into the ground, adjacent to and level with the millpond.

On the far side of the pool stands Le Moulinot, a renovated watermill originally built as a grain mill in the 18th Century. Le Moulinot is occasionally rented and the swimming pool is shared by all.

OUR BEST HOLIDAY EVER!!

  • 5 of 5
I'm almost afraid to say too many nice things about this place as it might not be available next year! What a lovely house and what a great location!! The house itself is lovely, the furniture comfortable, the kitchen more than sufficient and overall just beautiful. The location is great, so private and breathtaking. The garden is quite big and it was a delight to just sit on the large terrace and look out over the fields and the river. The squirrel, watervoles and kingfishers made the feeling of being surrounded by nature complete. All in all it was better than the pictures!The town of Vermenton is nearby and was lovely as well. By car Chablis and Auxerre were also close by. Horse riding is again nearby and the caves are definitely worth a visit! The pool is great and big enough for he four of us.
Dee made us feel very welcome and took great care of us.We love you Dee!!
We certainly want to come again next year!

WHAT A ROMANTIC SETTING!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at La Tourelle following the directions provided by Cinda. I do have to admit that driving over the narrow iron bridge to get to the property is not for the faint of heart but there is another route to take when coming and going that is far less exciting! The location of this cottage is absolutely perfect, in the countryside alongside a rushing stream and a tranquil mill pond. We really could not believe our eyes it was like stepping into a fairy tale. There is a lovely park next door with rivers and islands and quaint brides and many walking trails. We also walked into Vermenton, not 5 minutes away and in the other direction a nice stroll brings you to another village with a nice restaurant in a wine cellar. We loved our stay here, and although the owner and her children were close by, they were never intrusive and were very helpful. The cottage is well equipped, even with a wine fridge! Furnishing are comfortable and ample for 4. There is a lovely patio at the front of the cottage overlooking the mill pond and we ate supper there a few times. We decided on a BBQ and a bottle of good French wine one evening and my man surprised me with a proposal and an engagement ring he brought all the way from Canada. This will always be a special place for us and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet get away in the country. The area has lots to see and do if you are so inclined.

BRILLIANT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
Where do I start.. from the moment we pulled up to the moment we left we were in awe of this place. It was everything we hoped it would be and more for our stay in France. The home was perfect for my mum and I with the two bedrooms upstairs.The cottage La Tourelle was set in its own private space with huge patio overlooking the pond. Out the kitchen window, which is set in the round tower, you can see the beautiful pool and pond water, the most perfect view when making our coffee in the morning. The place is spotless and has everything you need to cook dinners or bake, if that is what you would wish to do. We didn't :) There was a lovely sitting room in the top part of the tower, off the double bedroom - it was the perfect spot to relax at night with a book or your iPad and a glass of wine :)

The location was wonderful as well. Every day we would get in our car and explore one of the many villages near by. We went to Chablis (which is the most beautiful town) to the open air market on Sunday. We drove to Vezelay (another gorgeous village) and saw the Basilica of Mary Magdalene. We explored Auxerre, Accolay, Noyers and Flavigny sur Ozerain (where Chocolat was filmed) and other little towns not to far from Vermenton. The countryside of Bourgogne is the most beautiful I have ever seen (and I am from Ireland) and the people even nicer. Even though the language was a challenge some times, everyone was very patient and helpful. We came at low season and it proved to be challenging as a lot of places were still not open for the tourist season. But I am very glad to have experienced this area, more as a local than a tourist. The towns were quieter and we mingled with the locals I think pretty well :)

Cinda, the owner, is English speaking and was wonderful and was there when ever we needed anything or had a question. I can't thank her and her family enough, for opening up their property for rent. We would not have had the same experience in a hotel. Staying at La Tourelle, was like a home away from home.

The village Vermenton is only a 10 minute walk away, with a great supermarket, boulangerie, and bank.. plus gas/petrol station there as well. everything you needed, in this most beautiful old village. For our first visit to France, and Bourgogne, this could not have been any better than I could have wished for. Thank you Cinda! We have been raving about your place to all our family and friends!! Wish I could be back there right now! :)
