Why Victoria Fernandez chose Saone-et-Loire

I fell in love with this property for three reasons , the views , the quiet and the large garden .

What makes this cottage unique

The views are truly gorgeous . The hamlet is small and the road very quiet. This a place to enjoy natural beauty and commune with nature. There are extensive walks to be made in all directions through forests and fields. The paths are well defined. Despite the feeling that you are a hundred miles from civilization , there is a small town nearby (6 kilometers) that has all amenities including a large supermarket that also sells petrol.

* Star gazers take note ; As there is little extra light the night sky is easily vewable .

Rural Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Les Marions was "just what the doctor ordered". A charming converted cottage, equipped to a high standard and set in a very peaceful rural location yet within easy reach (by car) of a number small towns with lots of stunning historical sights to see

The cottage is so very comfortable and full of character with a sunny terrace looking out across the countryside that it is tempting to just sit and relax but with Victoria's helpful suggestions of sights to see and places to eat we ventured out most days and found lovely quiet towns like Cluny and Tournus as well as bustling places such as Chalon Sur Saone and Beaune to explore.

The surrounding countryside is ideal for walking and cycling but being there during a heatwave (34 deg) we opted to visit medieval abbeys, chateau's and enjoyed the Caberet Evening show at the Cluny National Stud.

Victoria is close by and discreet but very willing to answer any queries.

We would thoroughly recommend Les Marions as an ideal location for those wishing to immerse themselves in the beautiful rural countryside and local cultures whilst "recharging your batteries"

An excellent choice for a rural retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was "home from home" for us being clean, spacious and comfortable. It was so nice to have such a well equipped kitchen. Breakfast outside with the view to enjoy made a wonderful start to the day. The bed was very comfortable and the roomy bathroom was supplied with really hot water. Beside all the brochures in the lounge, Victoria took the time to answer our questions about which places would be good to visit. We found this very helpful. Thank you, Victoria, for paying such attention to detail in your cottage which made our holiday so enjoyable. We will certainly recommend this holiday cottage to our friends .

perfect hide-away

  • 5 of 5

We spent one wonderful week at “les marions”. The cottage is very comfortable. There is a kitchen well equipped, living room with large sofa and two chairs you may sink in, look outside and listen music. The furnishing all over the house is made with love, tasteful and cozy. Even when we got in, there was some coffee and tea, a bottle of wine to welcome us, no need to buy toilet paper or dish soap. Really nothing is missing!

The terrace with panoramic view on beautiful landscape invites for a long stay. Everything inside and outside the cottage is very well looked after.

Besides there are two very friendly dogs which like to be caressed.

Victoria is very discreet and always responsive to any questions.

The place is perfect for who is looking for quietness and repose. The beautiful environments offer to visit lots of medieval churches, castles and old towns.

We enjoyed our stay and returned very relaxed. We easily recommend this cottage to our best friends. Thank you for this week!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have visited numerous places in the countryside of France and Italy and our stay at Les Marions ranks as one of the best. It has an isolated beauty, while still being accessible to shopping and great things to see and do. The comfort level of the small house was superb, with all needs for furnishings and enjoyment met or exceeded. Victoria is the perfect host both before and during. This is a don't miss if you want relaxation and proximity to beautiful countryside. Just under 2 hours from the Lyon airport.
