Take a dip in the heated pool, or in the evening fire up the BBQ and enjoy a glass of local wine from Chablis or Beaune , a fresh cheese from Epoisses and enjoy!
We had an amazing 2 week family holiday at Maison de Colline. The cottage is in lovely grounds with amazing views. It is very comfortable and well equipped. The surrounding areas are great to explore with the children. I would highly recommend this place and hope we may return to it one day!
We had a wonderful week in Maison de Colline. We were nine persons, and there was plenty of space, beds and bathroom facilities for everybody.
The garden is wide and pleasant. Everyone loved the pool, and the kids were really happy with the trampoline.
The views from the house and the garden are magnificent; you see some typical rolling French farming landscape and parts of the Morvan park.
The nearby Quarre-les-Tombes is a wonderful little village with a small and pleasant local market three days a week. There is also a tourist office and a nice little public library. It is a short drive to a lot of different Burgundy attractions.
We spent a week in the house, and experienced no problems. I can recommend the house to everybody looking for a pleasant stay in Burgundy.
A very comfortable and spacious house superbly equipped and maintained for a family stay. The owners were most accommodating and had the repair to the heating of the outdoor pool completed quickly. The town of Quarre le Tombs has all the facilities of a small Burgundy town with larger towns close by. There is much to do in the area with lakes, notable abbeys and the Zoo at the Parc de l'Auxois within easy reach. All in all Maison de Colline is a great place to stay for a memorable holday.
