Benjamin Haas purchased this cottage in 2007
We love the location as it has beautiful views on the Dheune valley to one side and is at the foot of the vineyards of the Cote Couchoise on the other. In between Couches and St. Leger sur Dheune it is very close to all amenities. The cottage we now rent out, we comfortably lived in whilst the main house was renovated. It is next to our main house and there is a large hedge that separates the two preserving privacy.
Great view, private garden, cute setting and cosy house, honest quality materials, comfortable beds. Satellite TV and internet via WIFI included.
Swimming is possible in a lake, 10 minutes from our home.
We live in the main house, so if you need anything, you can ask immediately.
Shops and facilities 5 minute drive away
TGV Le Creusot is 20 minutes from our house ( for a day trip to Paris or elsewhere)
Beautiful cottage, located on a hill with a great view over the Valleys and Hills of Burgundy. This cozy cottage comfortably accommodated the four of us for a week. It has everything a family needs to spend a vacation, and it is nicely decorated. Comfortable beds, great kitchen, towels, clean bathroom, good outdoor furniture.
The friendly owners continuously provided great service; from suggesting day-trips to ordering fresh bread from the local Bakery.
We particularly enjoyed our visits to the nearby Lake for a swim. We went to the Acro-Givry Parc for some adventurous climbing but most of all the kids enjoyed horseback riding right through the local vineyards.
We would highly recommend a visit to MontduLievre.
We chose this particular gite because it was close to family we have in the area. What a treat to stay in such a pretty house. Charming, extremely comfortable, we really wanted for nothing. Our hosts were friendly and helpful, providing us with ideas of where to go in the area and directions to get there. For anyone not sure about the area, this part of France is beautiful, lots to do, lovely weather and scenery. Having such a lovely house to stay in made our holiday just perfect.
Thank you Benjamin and Frances, I have no doubt we will be back soon.

Das Ferienhaus von Benjamin und Frances Haas ist besonders liebevoll eingerichtet, in der Küche findet man alles, was an Geräten benötigt wird, zur Begrüßung stand auch schon eine Flasche Cremant im Kühlschrank. Handtücher, Bettwäsche, Putzmittel, Toilettenpapier, sogar Pulverkaffee und Kaffeekapseln waren vorrätig.
Man fühlte sich vom ersten Tag an geborgen, fast wie zuhause. Hinzu kommt die liebevolle Betreuung, Beratung und Unterstützung durch Familie Haas, die im Haus gleich nebenan wohnen. Das große Grundstück ist umzäunt und es ist immer jemand anwesend, so dass man das Ferienhaus gar nicht abschließen musste, wenn man auf Entdeckungsreise ging. Oberhalb des Grundstückes beginnen die Weinberge der Bourgogne. Wir haben große Touren mit dem Fahrrad zurückgelegt, entlang des Canal du Centre findet sich gleich in der Nähe ein wirklich toller Radweg, ohne Auf- und Ab. Es gibt aber auch sehr gut beschilderte Radwege über die Berge. Die Städte Beaune, Clouny und Tournus sind besonders sehenswert und entlang der Saone findet sich ebenfalls ein sehr schöner Radweg. Auch zum Wandern bietet die Gegend um Beaune sehr schöne Routen.
Wir haben uns auch kulinarisch verwöhnen lassen und die Weißweine der Bourgogne haben uns besonders zugesagt. Alles in allem ein unvergesslicher Kurzurlaub, der viel zu schnell wieder zu Ende ging.
Wir werden sicher noch einmal dorthin fahren, vielleicht dann gleich für 2 Wochen oder mehr....
We had a perfect stay at this compact , well appointed cottage situated in a great location with wonderful views over the countryside. Benjamin and Frances made us very welcome and could not have been more helpful without in anyway being intrusive. It is a very peaceful location but with necessary shops at Couches 10 mins away by car, Beaune at 40 minutes is great but very crowded on Market day. The Hospice de Beaune is stunning and well worth a visit on non-market days. Do visit Benjamin Haas' local vineyard www.domaine-royet.com for great value quaffable wines at very reasonable prices.
Wunderschönes, kleines Häuschen mit eigenem Garten und herrlichem Blick über's Tal. Parkplatz direkt vor der Gartenpforte. Das Haus ist liebevoll eingerichtet und mit allem ausgestattet, was man sich nur wünschen kann. Abends haben wir in den gemütlichen Sesseln gesessen und das schnelle WLAN genossen. Vielen lieben Dank auch für den blauen Ordner, der Vorschläge für Ausflüge, die Markttage der umliegenden Orte (absolut sehenswert) und insbesondere Restaurant-Tipps enthielt. Das 'Au P'tit Kir' in Saint-Léger-Sur-Dheune hat uns besonders gut gefallen. Es ist, genau wie Bäcker und Supermarkt, keine 10 Minuten entfernt und liegt direkt am hübschen Kanal. Die Vermieter haben sich sehr, sehr nett (aber nie aufdringlich) um uns gekümmert. Wir können das Burgund und insbesondere dieses Ferienhaus jedem empfehlen. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt!
Vielen lieben Dank aus Hamburg, Claus und Susanne
We wanted to rent a self catering cottage in the Burgundy area, so that we could have a base to visit various villages, wine farms, and markets in the surrounding area. This was the perfect location, in a perfect setting, in an absolutely perfect cottage. Benjamin made you feel so at home and was full of helpful information. Hope to return in the near future

A very nice old stone house in typical burgundy architecture, best renovated and in a great surrounding. A very pleasant place, very quit with a lovely small garden and with a great view over the beautiful landscape of burgundy. Nevertheless it is not far away from the places of interests like Beaune and Dijon or the very famous old wine villages of burgundy.
The house was very clean, the equipment completely and the owner were very friendly and helpful. We liked our stay very much and we really recommend this property.

You can visit a market every day of the week. We specially like the cosy Beaune Saturday morning and Chalon sur Saone on Sunday morning. Unique is the early Monday morning market in Louhans, where there is livestock and the famous Bresse chicken.
Wine lovers heat your heart out! Lots to visit and taste of course! Many of the large wine houses can be visited, for example Pommard (red) and Meusault (white). In most villages you will find a cellar to visit, or see the wine farmers about their daily chores in the fields. At the house are introductions to our neighbours, Mrs Berbezy for red, and Bernard Royet for whites and wonderful Cremants ( the local champagne)
At less than 30km from us there are 4 golf courses: Montchanin 18 holes, Levernois 18 holes, Chalon 18 holes en Autun 12 holes.
Our neighbours run a equestrian centre ' le chante renards'. Hacking is possible with their horses as from 40 euros the hour.
The area around Montdulievre is hilly, from here you walk straight into the vineyards with magnificent views of rolling country.
We have lamas at the house, we can organize a walk with them.
Also for children there are several activities such as Arboretum in Givry at 15minutes drive, to swing from tree top to tree top, the pools and sailing lake at Autun, and the summer slide, steam train and carting at le Creusot.
The voie Verte is just in the valley, at the capitanerie of St leger sur Dheune you can rent bicycles for a stroll along the canal
Last but not least is Couches castle, just reopened with new owners at only 5 minute drive, making a must see place for young and old. If you wish you can book a wine tasting after the visit.
We live in the house next door, and will be your guide in the area. Of course if you just want to lie in your deck chair and enjoy the view with a glass of wine that is also possible.
