Overview

Saone-et-Loire Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Huge 1 Bedroom renovated cottage

Commune with nature and feast your eyes . This is a renovated farmhouse in a tiny hamlet on top of a hill, with stunning panoramic views.

Set on a 3 hectare property next door to the owner's house , it has its own huge South facing terrace, large table and chairs , sun umbrellas and BBQ facilities. Your views look down to a large water feature , forests and far distant mountains . Note: Because of the depth of the water feature, the cottage is not suitable for children under the age of 10.

There are prehistoric caves at Aze , and at Bergeserin (10 ks) an adventure park for the brave at heart. Walking is the most popular passtime in the area with hundreds of kilometers of tracks in forests and tiny country lanes.

Fishing is another activity keenly supported by the local community. Maps and permits are easy to obtain at the local mairie. If you want history , the Chateau of Cormatin is only 20 minutes drive away with it's medieval kitchen gardens and 16th century interiors it is a 'must see' in the area. The tourist office at Cluny has a list of Chateaux to visit in the area. Cluny itself is a lively town with the remains of the largest church in Christendom still very evident in the main square.

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.

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.

TROP BEAU !!!

  • 5 of 5

Un havre de paix, de tranquillité et d’authenticité. Un accord indescriptible, fait de discrétion et de présence vigilante pour le bien-être des locataires. Cette maison « le Cottage » est un lieu d’où il est difficile de partir, tellement on s’y sent bien. Une vue imprenable depuis la terrasse sur les collines de la Bourgogne du sud. La maison est aménagée avec goût et très fonctionnelle.

NB : Victoria est une maîtresse de maison « hors pair » et nous l’embrassons très fort.

Quiet nice house with stunning view

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I prefer quietness in the countryside - and that is what we found. The cottage is well equipped and from the terrace you can see for miles. If your French is not that good it is convenient to have an English speaking landlady. Although she lives next door she is very discrete. We are a couple aged around 60 and just outside the gate we found a varied landscape ideal for biking on calm roads or walking on marked tracks. There are several viewpoints in the area and cultural sites, e. g. in Cluny, Macon and Autun. We can highly recommend the place.
