Overview

Sailly Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Fully equipped self catering cottage that can sleep a maximum of 3

An attractive cottage in a very peaceful rural area not far from the historic town of Cluny and the religious village of Taize. A small village a mile away provides most basic needs.

The cottage enjoys a very peaceful location with panoramic views and is very private . The 12m swimming pool is a bonus for summer users (but not heated).

A former farm building the cottage has a king sized bed on a mezzanine floor with large fitted cupboards. Downstairs is a fully equipped kitchen with all mod cons. A passage with fitted cupboards houses the fridge and washing machine amongst other things, and the adjacent bathroom has both bath and separate shower, as well as WC and washbasin.

Beyond is the living room, with folding patio doors and an enormous old bread oven (not in use !). The sofa doubles up as a very comfortable double bed. There is a Sat TV withintegrated DVD player and free WLAN.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Super Holiday Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

Met by Richard who was great host, his holiday home was even better than its description and far exceeded our expectations. The large pool was an added bonus, but rather chilly after the recent spell of cool weather in this part of France. The views are fabulous.

It is well situated for visits to Cluny, Joncy, Taize, Cormatin, Brancion, but the local villages and hamlets are a delight in themselves.

Fantastic value for money, too. Well recommended.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Spent the last 2 weeks at this wonderful gite. The location is idyllic with great views in every direction. Amenities only a 30min walk or 10 min car drive away. The gite was the best equipped we have ever stayed in. It was clean and comfortable and had high quality equipment. Richard the owner was very friendly and helpful. We would love to return.

Every comfort and beautiful location

"Had a lovely week here.....very comfortable and quality accommodation, in a very beautiful and peaceful setting. Fantastic pool, and loved watching the wildlife....saw a hare in the drive! Lots to do and see, and particularly enjoyed the walks

locally....Salornay sur guy has some well marked and enjoyable country walking trails from the centre of the village. Owner Richard was very kind and considerate and gave us plenty of space. and shared his homegrown tomatoes and courgettes too! Just the week we wanted. Maggi and Colin Stewart. Cambs UK

Lovely surprise

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful stay with a lovely friendly welcome. Superbly equipped kitchen and very comfortable lounge area. The bedroom was much larger than the photograph portrays. Lovely pool area just for the two of us. We would highly recommend.

Brilliant week despite the weather!

  • 5 of 5

Had a brilliant week in this lovely house despite the 'rather naughty' weather for the time of year.

Lots of rain and overcast skies didn't dampen our enjoyment of the house, gardens and pool.

Very comfortable house with everything you could need. The photos do not do it justice although they are good. The pool is a delight and one of the nicest we have ever been lucky enough to enjoy.

Short drive to attractive Cluny with the added advantage of a very new and well stocked Intermarche supermarket on the outskirts.

Ideal area for visiting chateaux.

We visited and enjoyed nearby Pierreclos and Chateau Digoine.

As everyone says Richard and Birgit are charming and unobtrusive hosts.Thank you to both for a lovely, relaxing week. We can't wait to return.

Droomhuis in zuid bourgondie Excellent place to r

  • 5 of 5

Onze derde(en zeker niet onze laatste)vakantie in deze fantastische gite!

De ligging is bijzonder goed:uitermate rustig en toch voldoende dicht bij alle voorzieningen.

De gite is heel goed uitgerust,keuken en badkamer volledig in orde,heel netjes,gezellig,mooi!de gite is ruimer dan de foto s weergeven.

Een zalige terras met prachtig uitzicht op de beboste hellingen,de weiden,de wijngaarden!de mooie tuin en het "prive zwembad"zorgen voor een meer dan vakantie gevoel!!

Richard is de beste gastheer die je je kunt dromen!Discreet,maar aanwezig,altijd bereid om te helpen.

Zuid bourgondie is verrassend mooi:Het landschap heeft een mooie diversiteit,je ontdekt prachtige dorpjes,de vele wijngaarden,de voie verte voor de fietsersplis een bijzonder rijk erfgoed.

Kortom een aanrader!

A short translation:

The house is a very good place to relax,quiet,very clean,comfortable,Great views,a beautifull garden and terrass,a dream of a swimmong pool.

The location is also very good,you can visit a lot in the areas.

Richard is really the most friendly and helpfull host you can dream.

The historic towns of Cluny and Taize are nearby, with Macon, Beaune and Dijon within easy distance. Being one of the most famous wine regions in France there are a number of 'wine routes' discovering the delights of the grape. The area also offers plenty of sight seeing with numerous historical sites and famous Chateaux in the area with Cormartin being one of the closest. Or bike or roller skate down the 74k length of the old disused train track that runs through the stunning Burgundy countryside. Then come back to the cottage and relax by the pool.

Other Activities: There are numerous historical sites to see and a tour of the wine region is a must !
