Overview

Saisy Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Private home with large park-like garden accommodations for six people

A Chez Peshi vacation holiday in Burgundy’s wine country is an opportunity to experience the real France and enjoy one of the most captivating regions of Europe. Chez Peshi is a fully-furnished private home in Saisy, a farm village minutes west of the charming, medieval market-town of Nolay. It is at the center of a vast area considered among the most beautiful in France – a region of stunning scenery, unbounded outdoor opportunities, three thousand years of fascinating history, castles and châteaux, Roman antiquities, cathedrals and monasteries, quiet winding canals, palate-pleasing gastronomy and, of course, the world’s finest wines.

There is something for everyone and all within minutes of your cottage with five rooms and large, park-like garden. Two bedrooms comfortably accommodate four guests; a sofa bed offers room for two additional guests. All amenities are provided. Guests need only pick up some groceries in nearby Nolay or Epinac and settle in.

THE COTTAGE

Chez Peshi is the dream home of Pete and Shirlene. They fell in love with Burgundy in 1981 after first falling in love with Burgundy’s wines while living in Seattle some years earlier. In 1990 they were able to purchase the house as a vacation home while working in various locations in Europe. Renovation and restoration began in 1991 and continues today. An old attic was converted to a comfortable studio and lounge in 2003 and 2012 saw complete restoration of the exterior. Chez Peshi today is very comfortable and offers a rare opportunity to experience Burgundy’s wine and farm country the way it is known and loved by Burgundians. It is ideally located to explore and discover the many treasures and flavors of Burgundy.

The name “Chez Peshi” comes from a contraction of the owners’ names, Pete and Shirlene, and originated with a 5-year old German girl who named her dog Peshi after the American couple who befriended her.

GARDEN

The quiet park-like rear garden (or back yard in American English) is ideal for outdoor dining with friends or simply relaxing and enjoying the natural beauty of Saisy. Lawn furniture and barbecue grill are available. Sun-setting skyscapes are amazing and make a perfect time to enjoy a glass of wine before beginning evening activities.

LIVING ROOM

The living room highlights the ground level and features a large German Schrank with enough plates, serving dishes and wine glasses to serve a 5- or 6-course dinner to eight people. An Old-World beamed ceiling gives a feeling of going back in time to a simpler age. Facing the Schrank is large open fireplace guaranteeing cozy comfort and romance on chilly, off-season days. For entertainment, there is a large, flat-screen television with connection to iTunes, U.S. podcasts and movies. There is also a DVD player with a library of 30+ movies. A comfortable sofa converts to double bed for additional sleeping accommodations.

KITCHEN

The large kitchen is fully furnished with cooking utensils, pots, pans, serving and mixing bowls, plates -- everything needed for a simple or elaborate meal. Uniquely, a wine-barrel table with Carrara-marble top for 6 people is ideal for snacks or conversation while chef and sous chef prepare dinner.

There is a clothes washer under the kitchen counter.

Picnic baskets are provided for lunches at nearby picnic areas. Picnicking is a French passion and charming picnic sites abound. A list of Peshi favorites is provided with guests’ welcome packages.

There is also a portable radio-CD player with iPod dock in the kitchen.

DINING

The dining room seats 4 to 8 people. A multitude of dining experiences are possible with raclette grill, hot stone grill and fondue pot, all with accompanying cutlery.

For more elegant dining or hosting several guests there is a long, traditional Burgundian dining table in the upper level studio.

BEDROOMS

Sleeping arrangements for six include downstairs master bedroom with double bed, a large loft with roll-out double bed, and a sofa-bed in the living room. Two roll-away beds are available for nominal additional charge.

BATHROOM

The large circa 1970s bathroom includes shower, large double sink and facilities for ironing clothes.

STUDIO-LOUNGE

The upper level studio is a spacious, French-classic room with elevated comfortable lounge offering a beautiful view of forests and pastures dotted with Burgundy’s white Charolais cattle.

This multi-functional room also has a large, 8-person dining/work table and chairs and a reading and reference library with 500 volumes.

A large chamber below the lounge deck opens to reveal a double bed which can be rolled out to covert the studio into our 2nd bedroom.

ALSO OF INTEREST

Two mountain bikes and two cross-bikes are available for guest use. (See more below.)

There are many kilometers of well-marked hiking trails through forests, vineyards and farmlands in the area.

Chez Peshi has limited handicap accessibility. The first floor is wheel-chair friendly and there is a ramp available in the garage for descending from the back step to the garden. Handicap access to the upper level studio would be difficult.

Well-behaved animals are permitted with an additional cleaning charge and at our renting agent’s discretion.

A variety of unique French experiences are available in the area including luxury barge excursions on Burgundy’s famed canals, renting a small yacht to explore the canals on your own, hot-air balloon rides and renting a restored Duck, the popular Citroën 2CV of the 1940s-1990s.

OUT & ABOUT

An important part of a Chez Peshi holiday is getting and out and about – touring, wine hunting, dining, biking, visiting weekly markets, etc. We know of no place in Europe that offers so many unique and fascinating options within a half-hour or half-day drive. We have attempted to gather all the information you need, from leaflets to guidebooks to private touring notes to peruse upon arrival. In the meantime, we urge you to google “burgundy” plus subjects of possible interest: “wines burgundy”, “history burgundy”, “gauls and romans burgundy”, “canals burgundy”, etc.

The following are brief notes on what we love about Burgundy.

WINE HUNTING

Visiting wineries and tasting Burgundy’s wines is one of the great joys of a Chez Peshi holiday and an experience different from other wine regions of the world. Burgundy vineyards were largely owned by the Catholic Church until the French Revolution after which properties were broken up and sold to small land owners. Napoleonic inheritance laws continued subdivision of the most precious vineyards with the result that today, most vineyards and wineries are small, family-run operations. Competition for quality is fierce and with a little bit of homework you can find wines of amazing quality at reasonable prices.

But best of all, wine hunting – Pete and Shirlene’s term for visiting and tasting – offers a chance to meet Burgundy’s unpretentious, friendly owners. You can, of course, visit a few important chateaus where you can pay to taste and talk to tasting-room employees but our pleasure comes from meeting hard-working vintners who love their work, are immensely proud of the wines and are willing to stop what they’re doing and explain the ins and outs of their profession.

BEAUNE & AUTUN

Beaune, the wine capital of Burgundy, is a marvelous town of old-world ramparts, winding streets, sidewalk cafes, Michelin-star restaurants and miles of underground wine cellars (caves) waiting to be toured. There are wine-focus shops to tickle every imagination. Our favorite is Athenaeum, located across the street from Beaune’s famous Hospice de Beaune. It is Europe’s most amazing wine shop and offers thousands of books on wine and gastronomy, wine gifts and gadgets for every desire and even tastings. Beaune’s Saturday street market is one of the nicest in Europe and its annual wine auction in November attracts buyers from around the world.

Autun is famed for its Roman antiquities. Founded during the reign of Augustus after Julius Caesar’s final defeat of the Gauls, it’s attractions include an ancient amphitheater, two well-preserved Roman gates and the Temple of Janus. Autun’s St-Lazare’s Cathedral dates from the 1100’s and is famed for its architecture, most notably the sculpture art above the main portal. The city had an incredibly rich medieval history and the Count of Autun became the first Duke of Burgundy.

HIKING & BIKING

France boasts 35,000 km of marked and signposted hiking trails. Many are within a short drive of Saisy and two begin in our village center. Burgundy paths are mostly gentle and lead through farmland, vineyards and forests. The long-distance GR7 trail which runs from Germany to Spain passes through nearby Nolay. Hiking guides and a list of Peshi favorite hikes await our guests when they arrive.

A former railway that passed by Saisy has been converted to a paved hiking and biking trail that runs easterly 20km to Santenay. From Santenay, cyclists can pedal north on paved routes to explore vineyards, wineries and villages of the spectacular Côte d’Or, or ride along the old tow-paths of the Canal du Centre all the way to the Loire River, over 80 km from Santenay. Four bikes plus helmets are available for Chez Guests to use at their own risk. Rentals are also available in nearby villages.

UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY

A one-or two-week stay at Chez Peshi is an opportunity to experience the real France, to taste great Burgundy wines and to sample and prepare French country foods you will not find in restaurants. You can drive-tour the wine roads, bike or hike, or simply relax in Chez Peshi’s large, private garden while sampling the tastes of a successful wine hunt.

About Pete and Shirlene

A long time ago in the last Millennium, Pete and Shirlene were living in Seattle where Pete was an environmental executive and Shirlene was an civil engineer. One day a friend introduced them to an awesome white wine called Meursault from Burgundy. The more they learned about Burgundy the more they wished to see the country and sample its other wines and foods.

Shirlene discovered jobs were available in Germany where engineers were needed at American Military Communities. She applied and was offered a job at an American base in Bavaria. Pete decided to give up his office job and become a free-lance writer. In 1980 they moved to Bavaria and were soon hiking and skiing in the Alps and kayaking and rafting wild rivers.

But continued to dream of Burgundy and that magical wine they had enjoyed back in Seattle. A year passed before they could visit. They immediately fell in love with Beaune and its network of narrow streets surrounded by medieval ramparts. Wine and cheese shops, cafés and bakeries all pulled on them like magnets.

Meursault turned out to be a wonderful wine village with delightful restaurants, a maze of narrow crooked streets and white-stone homes and wine buildings. Friendly vintners welcomed them into cool, dark caves and offered generous portions of crisp, flinty-flavored Meursaults.

Wouldn’t it be nice to live here, they often thought. But Shirlene’s work was in Germany. Finally, in 1990, they found themselves looking at photos in the window of Beaune realtor. What about a modest vacation home? A few prices looked affordable. “Let’s ask,” said Pete. They were shown a house in Saisy not far from Meursault. It needed a lot of work but was livable. They shook hands with the realtor, signed some papers and drove back to Germany wondering how the new adventure would unfold.

Twenty years and many work vacations later, Shirlene retired and the vacation home became a part-time retirement home. Pete continues to write.

Pete and Shirlene purchased this cottage in 1990

Why Pete and Shirlene chose Autun area

We chose the property, Chez Peshi in Saisy, for a variety of reasons. Most notably, because of it’s ideal location on the border between the best vineyards of Burgundy to the east and the Morvan, France’s equivalent of Germany’s Black Forest, on the west.

We are wine lovers and active outdoor people. Some of the world’s best wines are produced just a few minutes to the east by honest, hard-working families, the kind of people we feel richer for getting to know. Generous tastings and always learning something new are the rule.

While wine is the attraction of most visitors, we found the same territory is a paradise for hikers, cyclists and rock-climbers. Trails begin in Saisy and multiply into an amazing network extending to the Beaune plain. Beginning in Nolay, 5 minutes east of Saisy, limestone cliffs offer fascinating hikes and serious rock-climbing challenges. Trails are named after Jean-Marc Boivin, the great French mountaineer who learned to climb here in his youth. The Bout du Monde, just north of Nolay, is a fascinating blind canyon dating back 170 million years to the Jurassic Period – ideal for walking, climbing and picknicking.

Twenty minutes west of Saisy is Autun, “gateway to the Morvan.” The Morvan is vast forest laced with rivers and dotted with lakes that offer fishing, boating and beaches. For us the attraction was kayaking.

Our market town, Nolay, was another factor. It has all the post-card charm of French villages featured in coffee-table books that include “most beautiful” in their titles.

Additionally, Chez Peshi’s location directly across the street from the mayor’s office and grade-school offered security. Isolated homes risk break-ins when owners are not in residence. We have never had to worry.

The large, park-like back yard was another factor. We like to dine outside on summer evenings. The house was and remains perfect for this activity.

What makes this cottage unique

Chez Peshi is uniquely suited and located for wine and food lovers who seek an active, educational vacation holiday.

Wineries, most of which welcome walk-in visitors, number in the thousands. Tastings are generous and free. Questions are always answered with patience and wisdom and, after buying a couple or few bottles, we always depart feeling richer and enlightened.

Burgundy’s gastronomy ranks among the world’s best. Slow, multi-course, palate-pleasing, artfully-presented dining is the rule. Supermarkets and weekly street markets offer wonderful food surprises for dining at your vacation cottage.

Hiking and cycling opportunities through vineyards and forests and along ancient canals are unlimited and unique in multiple ways.

Châteaux and castles, cathedrals and churches wait to be explored. Romanesque churches, like the one in Saisy, date from the 1100s.

Charming medieval villages are also a joy to explore with the added pleasure of café terraces to relax with a café crème or a glass of wine.

Burgundy’s history is incredible, beginning with the Gauls, moving up through the Roman period, early Christians, Islamic and Visigoth invasions and then 900 years when the Dukes of Burgundy ruled. Places to visit and learn abound: the Gaulish village of Bibracte and archeological site fascinates both young and old. A new 2012 museum dedicated to Julius Caesar’s final defeat of the Gauls at Alésia is worth a half-day visit. There are Roman gates in Autun and a World War II Resistance museum in the Morvan. The Château de la Rochepot near Saisy is one of France’s best preserved castles.

Activities seem unlimited: Hot-air ballooning, gambling at the Santenay casino, barging the 1800 hundreds canals of Burgundy.

All of this and so much more is in the area surrounding Chez Peshi. Tips, maps and guides await guests in the Chez Peshi WELCOME PACKAGE.

We can't say enough nice things about the property

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as described in VRBO materials. The owners have thought about all the little things that help make an extended stay in an unfamiliar area a very positive experience. The location was excellent for exploring the entire Beaunne region and there were numerous ideas and tips for places to visit provided by Pete and Shirlene. We would love to visit here again!!

Would Love to Return!

  • 5 of 5

Delightful home; unique art; complete kitchen in a lovely, rural French village. The owners, Pete and Shirlene, have what I would consider to be the most readable, useful and complete guide to their home and to the surrounding area that could possible be put together. They had bikes (which we used twice), hiking poles (which we used twice), a bike rack that fit our car, every possible kitchen need that we wanted and even a few welcoming amenities in the refrigerator when we arrived. They had a complete guide to restaurants, wine caves and local attractions and their recommendations were spot on! The internet and TV were user friendly (although we did need to call them for some minor technical advice) and everything in the "cottage" worked just fine! I don't need to mention the restaurants we went to because the guide they provide is so complete and it is hard to find a bad restaurant in the Burgundy area. We do recommend the bike trails that go through the Cote d' Beaune area and we even had a picnic (they have a great picnic basket too!) alongside one of the canals. Overall, this was a memorable stay for us and we so appreciate the attention to detail that they provided in their guide and anyone staying at their cottage will share in that appreciation.

Third visit and it keeps getting better!

  • 5 of 5

This was my third trip to Saisy and it was perhaps the best stay yet. The newly finished terrace and well are a wonderful place to enjoy breakfast or just read a book. The owners provide the most detailed and diverse information possible, especially the famed "Chez Pehi Guide Book" will leave no questions open in regard to the house or information on the area (i.e. places to see, markets etc.). Any questions that arose before our trip were answered within the day, most within a few hours even, which was wonderful. The house is spacious, accurately portrayed, and lovely to stay in. We especially enjoyed the large open fireplace while watching movies or reading and the big kitchen (with a door to the terrace and yard), which is fully equipped. The large windows looking over the countryside and comfortable couch on the second floor made it a favorit place to rest in the evening. We recommend taking one of the bikes provided by the owners to explore the countryside, where a there seems to be a chateau in nearly every tiny village. At least one of the recommended "Chez Peshi Hikes" should be taken, as they will bring you to some beautiful places and really are a wonderful way to get to know the area. The nearby market town of Nolay offers everything needed from food to antiques and Saisy is excellently located to reach any location in the area, such as Autun, Beaune, Santenay, Meursault etc.

I would recommend this home to anyone.

Better than home

  • 5 of 5

This house is set in a picturesque village a few kilometers from the little town of Nolay. The area is beautiful with farm fields and woods. Vineyards abound just a few minutes drive to the east. The town of Autn about 20 kilometers to the west has a Roman amphitheater that the community still uses today, awesome!

The home is immaculate and has everything you need plus more. We enjoyed using the bikes in the garage for some great rides and picnics. Local wineries were fun to visit and the store in Nolay had a great food selection. We prepared most of our meals in the kitchen which was fantastically equipped.

The kids loved the loft and it was so cool my wife and I almost traded them for the very comfortable master bedroom. Internet, wifi, cloud tv, wow.....this place has it all. Did I mention a washer, nice back yard with comfortable patio, ect,ect,ect. And the original structure is hundreds of years old. So cool to think of all that history.

Everything was as it was reported to be when we arrived. We got alittle lost on the way in but it wasnt a problem. We called the owners while they were on vacation in Italy and they got a map and guided us in.Fantastic personnel service.

We spent sixteen days total in France and a total of four at this great house. Our only regret of the whole trip is that we didnt spend a few more days here.

TRULY AN EXPERIENCE YOU WILL NOT WANT TO END!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot think of all the wonderful words to use to tell you about how great Chez Peshi was -from the homeowners themselves (Pete & Shirlene) to everything you have ever dreamed of having in a visit to the wine country.

From the first time we stepped into the house, we were amazed at how homey it felt. You actually get to have the feeling of what it would be like to live in this beautiful little hamlet. The house is not only fully furnished, but fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. There are more things in the kitchen than I knew what to do with. All you need to stay at this great place is your clothes, food, and drink. The rest is taken care of for you. I loved the large backyard. My husband and I would sit out on the patio drinking wine and listening to the cows moo in the evening. That is how quiet it is, which was delightful for us being from the suburb of a large city (Houston). The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed sleeping with the window open a little for some cool, fresh air. There were so many interesting things to look at throughout the house. Apparently, the owners are quite the travelers since there are things from everywhere sitting around and hanging on the walls, and also some fantastic antiques. We just loved being in Saisy and having so much peace and quiet. And the countryside is absolutely beautiful with green rolling hills and castles dotted throughout. Depending on what type of outings you enjoy most, there are plenty for everyone’s tastes. And there is so much information left at the house for you to pick what you might want to do.

The owners were just fantastic. It was obvious that they took a lot of time to make everyone’s stay there exceptionally easy by leaving more information about the house and the area than you could find on the internet in a year! We ran into a little snafu with getting to our next location in France because that owner only spoke French and we speak only English. We did not have an address or even a town where we were supposed to go! Shirlene was gracious enough to contact the lady and got all of the information that we needed and even arranged the meeting place and time.

Shirlene was very interesting to talk to and went above and beyond what you would ever expect of your owner. We enjoyed talking to her and Pete and I wish they had not been so far away because we would loved to have met them! Our time here was Incredible – a dream come true!!

Beautiful Country Home Situated in an Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We choose Chez Peshi for a two week adventure in Burgundy wine country and were not disappointed. From the moment that we made contact with Pete and Shirlene to the final day of our stay, everything was top-notch. We greatly appreciated the information about wine hunting, hiking and cycling that they provided prior to arriving, the detailed information about how to find Chez Peshi and, most of all, Chez Peshi. They even provided a very informative Welcome package that contained a lot of excellent information. Chez Peshi was such a lovely French country cottage with way more space and warmth than we had imagined. Pete and Shirlene have worked very hard to make sure that the home is welcoming, well-appointed and a place where you can relax and decompress. It was very evident that this is their home and that a lot of love and care had been given to it. The kitchen was very well-equipped, the beds were very comfy and the studio upstairs was a lovely place to spend some quiet time in the sun. The back patio was a beautiful place to enjoy some food and wine and we enjoyed playing boules in the very large garden. The wireless service was a welcome surprise and we enjoyed a few free Apple TV movies. We had three relatives stay with us for several days and we never felt cramped and our cousins enjoyed having their own private space in the upstairs studio.

From a sightseeing and adventuring perspective, Chez Peshi is in a wonderful location. It is very close to the wine touring areas (Beaune, Santenay, Chagny, etc.) and a short drive to interesting sites like Autun, Bibrekte and La Rochepot. I would highly recommend a cycle along the canal by Santenay and a visit to the museum at Bibrekte (Mont Beuvray), an ancient Gaul village. If you have time, Vezelay is absolutely beautiful and dessert at Le Blanc Cheval is to die for. There are also some lovely picnic spots in the area, such as the Mountain with Three Crosses, and some great walking trails if you enjoy nature. Pete and Shirlene have provided many suggestions, maps and pretty much any guidebook that you need. We will be recommending Chez Peshi to all our friends. It was amazing.

Chez Peshi Cottage is located in the small village of Saisy, Burgundy, France. It is just off the D-973 highway roughly midway between Beaune and Autun. The village has limited bus service and a car is required for an enjoyable stay.

Beaune is easily reached by superhighway (autoroute) from Paris and Germany to the north and from Lyon and Geneva, Switzerland to the south and east. The village is 3 hrs south of Paris, 1hr 40 min north of Lyon and 2 hrs 30 min west of Geneva. The great Alpine mountaineering center Chamonix is 3 hrs east on the Italian border.

High-speed train service on the TGV from Paris, Geneva and Marseilles to nearby Beaune and Le Creusot is frequent. Rental cars are available at the Beaune and Le Creusot stations.

There are no commercial services in Saisy and guests shop in nearby villages. Nolay, with charming, medieval center is 5 min away in the direction of Beaune and offers all normal services.

Saisy is at the center of a geographic triangle – roughly 30-50 km per side (20-30 miles) with Beaune, Chalon and Autun at the points – which is considered one of the “most beautiful areas of France.” It is a region of stunning scenery, unbounded outdoor opportunities, three thousand years of fascinating history, castles and châteaux, Roman antiquities, cathedrals and monasteries, quiet winding canals, palate-pleasing gastronomy and, of course, the world’s finest wines.

Chez Peshi is thus perfectly located for wine and food lovers who enjoy active, educational vacation holidays.

Nearby wineries, most of which welcome walk-in visitors, number in the thousands. Tastings are generous and usually free. Questions are always answered with patience and wisdom and, after buying a couple or few bottles, one always departs feeling richer and enlightened.

Burgundy’s gastronomy ranks among the world’s best. Slow, multi-course, palate-pleasing, artfully-presented dining is the rule. Supermarkets and weekly street markets offer wonderful food surprises for dining at your vacation cottage.

Hiking and cycling opportunities through vineyards and forests and along ancient canals are unlimited and unique in multiple ways.

Châteaux and castles, cathedrals and churches wait to be explored. Romanesque churches, like the one in Saisy, date from the 1100s.

Charming medieval villages are also a joy to explore with the added pleasure of café terraces for relaxing with a café crème or a glass of wine.

Burgundy’s history is incredible! It begins with the Gauls who had developed an advanced civilization in the centuries before Christ and moves up through the Roman period, early Christian period, Islamic and Visigoth invasions and then 900 years when the Dukes of Burgundy ruled. There are Roman gates and an amphitheater in nearby Autun, a Gaulish village and archeological site in the Morvan, a new museum dedicated to Julius Caesar’s final defeat of the Gauls at Alésia and important art and history museums in Dijon and Autun. Several World Heritage sites are to be found in the area. The Château de la Rochepot, one of France’s best preserved castles, is just minutes from Chez Peshi.

Activities seem unlimited and googling is highly recommended. Who would expect activities such as hot-air ballooning, gambling at the Santenay casino and barging winding canals to bed part of the Burgundy résumé?

And Chez Peshi in Saisy is located at the center of it all. Tips, maps and guides await guests in the Chez Peshi WELCOME PACKAGE.

Notes:
Chez Peshi cottage on the western edge of Burgundy’s famed wine vineyards is an opportunity to experience authentic France. The house is a fully-furnished private home in Saisy, a few minutes west of the charming, medieval market-town of Nolay. Cookware, food serving and wine glasses are very extensive. The surrounding area is a region of stunning scenery, unbounded outdoor opportunities, three thousand years of fascinating history, castles and châteaux, Roman antiquities, cathedrals and monasteries, quiet winding canals, palate-pleasing gastronomy and, of course, some of the world’s finest wines. There is something for everyone and all within minutes of Chez Peshi. The house has five rooms with large, park-like garden and will comfortably accommodate four guests in two bedrooms or six counting the living-room sofa bed. All amenities are provided. Guests need only pick up some groceries in nearby Nolay or Epinac and settle in.
