About the property

Old cottage with modern comforts, beautiful view, quiet, and very private

Charming 19th-century stone cottage, situated on a hillside in the Regional Park of Morvan at the altitude of 560 meters, with a panoramic view of the Burgundy countryside. Calm, secluded in its natural setting, this 'fermette' has been entirely modernized this year. It is surrounded by 4.3 hectares of private forested land of which a half an hectare is a terraced yard. It is situated in a small hamlet 'Le Niret.' The access to the cottage is via a semi private dirt road. The cottage has 5 principle rooms on two floors: the lower level--a family room cum dining room with large old fireplace, a cathedral ceiling, and a fully equipped modern American kitchen; across from the entrance is a separate large living room. On the second floor there are three bedrooms and a mezzanine overlooking the family room. A small shed houses wood and garden furniture. Private parking beside the house easily accommodates three cars. The gardenterrace has several walnut and chestnut trees.

Charming hillside cottage in hamlet - Le Niret, par Villapourcon, Nievre, France
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

tasteful charm in the heart of france

  • 5 of 5

such a beautiful spot to really feel like you can get away from everything. the house has been beautifully and tastefully renovated but keeps its morvandois charm whilst being modern and cosy. I plan on coming back with friends next year! to those of you who haven't spent any time in the Nievre/le Morvan - I highly recommend it.

Ruhiges Haus mit schönem Blick

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist noch schöner als beschrieben in einer sehr ruhigen Lage mit schönem Blick. Es ist toll und geschmackvoll eingerichtet, es fehlt an nichts. Wir haben uns in dieser Ruhe sehr wohlgefühlt. Man muss es mögen, wenn nicht viel um einen herum ist, dann ist man hier bestens aufgehoben.

Une maison très agréable, une région à découvrir

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette belle maison très bien rénovée et très bien équipée.

Nous avons apprécié le calme de l'environnement et le charme de cette campagne du Morvan.

Maison que nous avons trouvé bien adapté pour des vacances avec des enfants.

Belle région, belle maison, très au calme

  • 4 of 5

Cette ancienne ferme a été très bien rénovée, alliant l'authenticité de la salle à vivre, très agréable, et la modernité de l'étage (chambres et salle de bain). Et l'endroit est très calme!!!

La région est belle, très verte (le bémol de cette verdure : il pleut un peu...). Que des petits hameaux isolés (reliés par de petites routes sinueuses, un peu pénible parfois), des maisons en pierres en général bien entretenues, des prés avec des Charolaises, leur petits veau et leur gros taureau, des haies, des bosquets, les ruisseaux, la forêt...

Idéal pour les amoureux de la nature, des randonnées, du calme. Les activités d'eau (rafting...) sont un peu loin (1bonne heure), ainsi que le lac des settons.

Les moins : pas de restau intéressants, difficulté à trouver des souvenirs.

A faire : Bibracte, Autun, Chaos de Luchon, gorge de la Canche, cascade de la Dragne....

Owner's Response: Il y a comme dans toutes autres régions de nombreux restaurants. Difficile à recommander lorsque l'on ne connaît pas les envies et le budget des vacanciers. Je peux citer le restaurant du Morvan à Luzy (18 km), le Pré Fleuri à St Honoré les Bains (7 km), Le Clos de la Bussière à Semelay ( 8.5 km).... Le Lac de Pannecière (35 km) est le plus proche du Niret.
