BEAUTIFUL 1850 MAISON BOURGEOIS WITH POOL, BETWEEN CHABLIS AND BEAUNE

Crain Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 bedrooms, 2 bath, antique furniture; heated pool. WiFi

Situated in the heart of Burgundy, with beautiful Landscapes and magnificent Vineyards, this lovely property is ideally placed within easy reach of Chablis and Beaune, and many famous attractions, rich in French History and tradition.

This wonderful 19th century Maison Bourgois, restored by the architect owner, has kept all its old charm with tiled floors and selected colours inside, now equipped with all modern amenities, which makes it cosy, elegant and comfortable.

The 5 bedrooms are spacious, decorated with antique furniture and silk curtains.

The dining room for 10 people is open to the lovely new but old-fashioned well-equipped kitchen, and with a huge gas oven that makes it a pleasure to cook Burgundian cuisine.

The living room has a huge stone fireplace, a grand piano and two double patio doors straight to the garden and the terraces with tables and chairs, to dine in the sun or in the shade under the terrace-roof.

This house is exclusively for you, with private pool and beautiful 4000 m2 - 40.000 sq.ft private landscaped garden, enclosed by stone walls.

The garden has big spaces for children, and a rich array of fruit trees and flowers – lilacs, roses, tulips.

The kitchen garden with lettuce, tomatoes and herbs is a delight.

Birdwatchers will love the sound of swallows and goldfinches singing.

The heated 5 x 10 meter swimming pool in blue mosaic is enhanced by the perfume of the lavender border.

On the grand piano in the living room you will find a map indicating where to buy, to dine, and what to visit.

WiFi installed.

Shops, bars and restaurants are all within walking distance, and a wealth of vineyards are a short drive away.

There are numerous monuments in the region to be visited - Vezelay, a hilltop village, famous for the St Magdalene Basilica - magnificent ! 25km from the house, and with many nice shops and restaurants in this medieval city. The Abbey of Fontenay is also in the region: both are listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites.

Four bicycles are at your disposal; there are wonderful trails nearby for biking and jogging.

Many different châteaux such as Bazoches and St Fargeau are nearby, as well as the great vineyards of Chablis, Irancy, Côtes d'Auxerre, Beaune, Cote de Beaune and Côte de Nuit.

The region is sprinkled with art and history treasures. There are maps and guidebooks in the living room at your disposal.

You will also find TV, DVD player and CD system with a fine selection of classical music and jazz. There is a great selection of books on literature, art, architecture and more.

The property is easily reached by A6 motorway from Paris in less than two hours, or by direct train.

It is a lovely place and I invite you to read some of the visitors’ comments :

'There are not enough superlatives to describe the contemplative life we found here. We admired the intelligence displayed in the renovation of the house maintaining the integrity of the original and making changes that only enhanced the pleasures of the house. We wish you well and continuing enjoyment in the home you lovingly labored to bring back to life for the pleasure of all who reside here.'

Mr and Mrs D, New York

'This house is a splendid place to spend a week of family-time, away from our normal fast-paced, hectic lifestyle. The pool was just perfect for cooling off in the intense Burgundy sunshine. An experience not to be missed, thank-you for sharing your house!'

Bain Family, Cambridgeshire, UK

'Fantastic house, incredible garden and a beautiful setting. We have enjoyed the surrounding towns, Toucy and Vezelay especially and wine tasting in Chablis is not to be missed. Thank you so much for providing such a delightful residence.'

The Johnsons, Bolton, UK

Burgundy is the heart of French history, food and wine. With its castles and châteaux, museums and churches, vineyards and beautiful landscapes, it is like traveling in paradise on earth. In Burgundy buildings, food and wine are in complete harmony

Harvest moon

As a newly established family of three, we happily exchanged our jobs and stressful big city life for a calm and peaceful September month on parental leave with our new-born son in Crain, France.

The beautiful and well restored house, the perfectly planned private garden, the sound from the village church bell and the landscape surrounding it all, offered us the calm peacefulness that we were in search for. The well equipped kitchen soon became the center for our daily activities, using plenty of time to plan and prepare great “slow-food”, being creative with the fresh supplies we found on the village markets. The private garden was rich with fruits, fresh herbs and vegetables that gave us plenty of ideas and delicious ingredients for dinners, deserts and marmalades. Along with the gardens generous nature, it provided us with an intimacy and privacy whether we were walking or playing around in it, preparing ourselves breakfast, lunch or dinner in the beautiful green scenery or allowing yourself a refreshing swim in the pool. The village surroundings has plenty of great stroller walks in the nearby woods, along the riverboat canals or crossing the cultivated fields covered with oats, corn and wild flowers. For longer excursions into the neighbor villages or the Bourgogne vineyards, one becomes dependent on the car.

The owner has collected a great number of travelling books side by side with a large collection of architecture and design book that comes handy for trip-planning, or general good reading on a rainy days. The house in Crain is highly recommendable for young adults and families with interest in great food and wine, spending a slow pace vacation in peaceful, charming and beautiful environments.

A perfect New Year!

We were fortunate to be able to celebrate such a fabulous New Year in such beautiful surroundings. Despite the bitter cold outside, the house was lovely and warm and the cosy fireplace created an inviting atmosphere and became the centerpoint of many a delightful evening of food, wine and joyful banter! The countryside offered many enjoyable and cultural outings and charming villages to stop for long lunches on the way!
We would definitely consider a spring or summer visit to enjoy the lovely gardens and pool and explore the area further.

Lovely house

  • Submitted: Jan 31, 2011
  • Stayed: Aug 2001
The weather has been beautiful and we have loved having the pool to swim in each day. Your house is lovely with some distinctive pieces of furniture. We were fascinated to see your book of how you transformed the house into the present style – so light with beautiful colours, textures and fabrics. All your wonderful books and music have given our summer quite a cultural flavour. Our visits to surrounding towns of interest and the wonderful restaurants nearby have made our stay so enjoyable.

What a wonderful holiday! Thank you for allowing us to use your home, which has obviously been lovingly restored. We have all enjoyed our excursions to the surrounding areas, to the Morvan, Sancerre, Pouilly-sur-Loire and many others. We have had much pleasure watching the swallows, swifts and gold finches. Thank you once again, we would love to visit again.

The property is on the outskirts of a small village. This beautiful spacious home, restored by the architect owner, has a 40,000 sq.feet private landscaped garden, a 5m x10 m heated mosaic-lined swimming pool and badminton-court, enclosed by stone walls. The enchanting garden, rich with flowers - lilacs, roses, lavender, tulips; fruits - cherries, wild strawberries, apples, quince, mirabelle; and trees - walnut, linden fir and juniper - is really a paradise for adults and children. Excellent shops and restaurants in the vicinty. Wonderful area for jogging and biking; tennis courts nearby.
