About the property

Stylish house in the village, quiet, beautiful views, terrace, 2 bedrooms

The house was built in 1928 and lies at the edge of the peaceful village square of the small South Burgundy village of Saint-Didier-sur-Arroux, which is located in the Regional Morvan Nature Reserve. The house offers a magnificent view of the undulating pastures in which the white Charolais cattle roam, of the Etang de Bousson and of the southern flanks of the wooded Morvan Mountains.

The annex to the house was in use as a smithy until the sixties of the last century. The village square was then in use to shoe the horses of the farmers and nobilty and to repair farming equipment.

The village has about 250 inhabitants, most of them live on farms in the surrounding area. In the village itself, you will find, aside from our restaurant La Petite Auberge ( several houses, a post office, the town hall, the school, the church and a flea/antiques market operated by a Dutch couple.

Delightfully decorated and resourced village house surrounded by glorious French countryside.

  • 5 of 5

House well appointed, terrace perfect for lazing, enjoying the odd glass of wine, hostess who met every request and surpassed all expectations. Plenty to see driving round the local and wider area - chateaux, beautiful villages, abbeys and Roman ruins.

Traumhafte Herbstwoche

  • 5 of 5

Selten hatten wir eine so eine grandiose Unterkunft !

Ein Ort um die Seele baumeln zu lassen, Spaziergänge und Wanderungen vor der Haustür, dazu ein prachtvolles Farbenspiel der herbstlichen Wälder, ein "Indian Summer" für den andere bis nach Nordamerika reisen.

Dazu kommt eine herzliche Aufnahme durch die Gastgeber, die nicht nur durch das stilvolle und perfekte Ambiente des Feriendomizils verwöhnen ,sondern durch ihr kleines aber feines Restaurant vor Ort.

Kurzum - ein ideale Ort für Burgundreisende.

Beautiful setting and very comfortable and well-at

  • 5 of 5

Lovely welcome by Ana with flowers on table and bottle of wine. Weather very wet on and off but the views from the property were still spectacular. Great to have the Auberge along the road for our first night and the food was excellent there.The house was spotless and well maintained. Only disappointment was although it states there is a washing machine - there was not one in the property. We would stay there again and would recommend it to friends.

Owner's Response: Dear Elisabeth, thank you for you words. I am glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay despite the wet conditions outside. Concerning the washmashine it is actually stated that there is one for your disposal at the Auberge. If I had only known you certainly could have used this mashine at any time. Sorry about this! Best regards and until we'll meet again.... Ana Cristina Baulan

Leuk huis in prachtige omgeving

  • 5 of 5

je voelt je gelijk thuis in L'ancienne Forge. De eigenaresse heeft het met veel smaak ingericht en opgeknapt. De eigenaresse is zeer aardig en heeft een restaurant in het dorp waar je prima kunt eten. Het dorp is zeer stil, voor vertier moet je er niet zijn, wel voor rust, lekker wandelen en genieten van de prachtige omgeving.

Zum ersten Mal im Burgund…

  • 5 of 5

... und gleich an einem der landschaftlich schönsten Orte. Die alte Schmiede – ein Haus zum Wohlfühlen und Entspannen; die herrlichen Ausblicke von der Terrasse auf die Wiesen mit den Charolais und auf den Mont Beuvray; das hervorragende Restaurant der Vermieter, die Petite Auberge gleich nebenan; und die Ruhe in diesem schönen kleinen Dorf, die auch durch die wenigen Autos und die Traktoren der Bauern nicht gestört wird, da die Straße unterhalb der Terrasse und des Hauses vorbeiführt. Besonders wohl gefühlt haben wir uns in der Dorfgemeinschaft, die sich hier zwischen den Einheimischen, den zugezogenen Holländern und den wenigen Gästen gebildet hat – wir haben unvergessliche Begegnungen gehabt und waren von der Freundlichkeit der Menschen – hier im Dorf wie auch insgesamt im Burgund- mehr als beeindruckt. Autun hat uns sehr gut gefallen, ein schöner Ort mit einem hervorragenden Wochenmarkt und netten Cafés, in denen man sich auch bei größerer Hitze gut aufhalten kann. Und wenn uns dann noch die beiden Hunde der Vermieter bei unseren abendlichen Spaziergängen rund um St. Didier mit seinen vielen herrlichen Ausblicken begleitet haben, dann war alles in Ordnung und wir wollten nicht mehr anderswo sein. Wir freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen mit Land und Leuten in diesem schönen Ort.

Owner's Response: Liebe Sommergâste der alten Schmiede, vielen Dank, dass Sie sich die Zeit genommen haben, Ihre Eindrûcke als 'Burgund'-Neulinge zu schildern. Wie schôn, dass es Ihnen hier bei uns im Dorf so gut gefallen hat. Da Sie sich als potenzielle 'Wiederholungs-tâter' geoutet haben, freuen wir uns schon jetzt auf Sie. Quiran und Zita begleiten Sie bestimmt gern wieder bei Ihren Spaziergângen....Bis dahin, Ihnen eine gute Zeit. Ana Cristina Baulan

Car: necessary

The beautiful pastures just outside the Morvan village are the perfect decor for walks and bike rides. Nature lovers can also enjoy the nearby Morvan mountains. These can be traversed on foot, by bike, car or on horseback.

For those interested in culture, the ancient Roman town Autun (20 minutes by car) or the Celtic settlement of Bibracte (30 minutes) should not be missed. A drive to Citeaux and Cluny (90 minutes), the home of the Cistercians, may well be combined with a tour of the Brionnais with its many 1000-year old Roman village churches.

Wine lovers can take the Route des Grands Crus to Beaune (60 minutes) with its famous hospital or visit the Chablis wine cellars on the way to Vezelay, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

And....during the evening, there is no better place to relax and dine than the terrace of the bistro/restaurant La Petite Auberge ( a 200 meter walk from the house.
