Superbly clean and quiet (English)

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at L'Esprit des Lieux, the gite is an absolute pleasure to stay in, modern bathroom and kitchen, some elements of shabby chic design and not overly cluttered. Room to breathe, room to relax and take in the view and just unwind.

Surrounded by breath-taking countryside, at one end of a small village, the only traffic is the twice daily commute of the goats past the driveway, some small distant tinkling of bells but nothing to disturb your afternoon nap.

Schönes Ferienhaus, herrliche Landschaft

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei wunderbare Wochen in einem liebevoll ausgestatteten Haus inmitten der herrlichen Landschaft des Burgund verbracht.

Sehr nette und aufmerksame Vermieter, das Haus ist sehr sauber und gepflegt.

Abseits von Touristen-Rummel und Verkehr gelegen, bieten sich vielfältige Möglichkeiten für Ausflüge und Besichtigungen an. Cluny liegt etwa 4 km entfernt und bietet Restaurants und Einkaufmöglichkeiten.

Wir können diese Unterkunft auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen.

Danke und liebe Grüße, Pascal und Pascale!

Un gîte d'un très grand charme

  • 5 of 5

Une semaine de vacances parfaite : le lieu est très chaleureux grâce aux propriétaires à la fois discrets et disponibles, à leur maison fleurie où l'on se sent bien. Et la région est absolument superbe pour qui aime les visites culturelles, les randonnées, les concerts à Cluny sans oublier la gastronomie!

Owner's Response: Merci à nos profs émérites de passage, venues respirer l'air de la campagne Bourguignonne loin de leur région Parisienne d'adoption . Bon courage pour la reprise en Septembre en attendant de vous accueillir à nouveau avec plaisir pour de nouvelles randonnées et découvertes de notre patrimoine historique, sans oublier nos conseils " sur mesure " :-) Bien cordialement Pascale & Pascal

Erholung im Burgund

  • 5 of 5

Zwei Wochen durften wir im "L'Esprit des Lieux" verbringen und die guten Geister des Ortes auf uns wirken lassen. Pascale und Pascal empfingen uns ganz herzlich und gaben wertvolle Tipps, um die Umgebung zu erfahren. Neben dem toll eingerichteten Häuschen durften wir die schmackhaften Tartes von Pascale geniessen. Bei heissem Wetter verbrachten wir die Abende auf der Terrasse und liessen die Ruhe und den Frieden der Umgebung auf uns wirken. Das mit viel Geschmack und Liebe eingerichtete Haus ist jedem zu empfehlen, der Ruhe, Abgeschiedenheit und viel Natur geniessen möchte. Wir danken Pascale und Pascal für die Gastfreundschaft und Herzlichkeit, die sie uns entgegenbrachten und wünschen ihnen alles Gute und dass "L'Esprit des Lieux" immer von guten Geistern begleitet wird. Roberto und Cornelia

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank Roberto und Cornelia für die netten Kommentare. Wir sind ebenfalls sehr glücklich gewesen, Ihre Bekanntschaft zu machen. Sie bekommen von uns eine “Goldmedaille” für die mit dem Fahrrad zurückgelegten 300 Km. Eine gute Heimreise nach Binningen.

Most complete gite we ever had!

  • 4 of 5

Every thing was perfect. Pascale and Pascal are really nice people and make you feel at home rightaway. It was the most complete gite we ever had. The garden is really beautiful. We enjoyed the silence of the surrounding. The only minus is the wifi. In the house you cant recieve anything. There is not much to do in the village Vaux. No shops, hardly any people. Only the Chapel is nice. Overall we give it a 8+.

Owner's Response: Thank you Bert & Marijke for your review . I'm surprised about your minus about the internet access ; it is the first time that one of my guests had a problem ... As I told you at your arrival wifi is better in the living room . Perhaps was it an issue with your laptop or cellphone ? ;-) Also Vaux isn't a VILLAGE but a little hamlet ; just about 50 persons live in this place , it 's why you enjoyed the tranquility of the place ... And most of the people the week of August 15th were gone for holidays like you :-) Finally in Cluny ( just 4 kms far from the cottage ) you took advantage of all kinds of shops , restaurants, supermarkets etc .... The best of wishes for you in Netherlands for the future . Pascale

Schönes, ruhiges Landhaus im Burgund

  • 5 of 5

In diesem wunderschöne Haus im südlichen Teil von Burgund haben wir uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Es ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und es hat alles was man braucht. Ganz besonders gut hat uns gefallen, dass man an diesem Ort die Ruhe genießen kann. Auch der wunderschöne Blick von der Terrasse in das weite Tal hat uns begeistert. Es gibt viele Möglichkeiten seinen Urlaub zu gestalten. Diese Region bietet für jeden Geschmack etwas an. So kann man schöne Schlösser und Kirchen besichtigen, Wanderungen unternehmen, schwimmen im See, Weinverkostung und gutes Essen genießen. Die Vermieter Pascale und Pascal sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und haben uns viele Tipps für die Gestaltung der Woche gegeben, die alle super waren. Überhaupt war es sehr angenehm an diesem wunderbaren Ort. Gerne denken wir an den Abend zurück, wo wir gemeinsam mit unseren Vermietern bei einem Glas Wein uns über Gott und die Welt unterhalten haben. Wir kommen sicherlich gerne wieder hierher zurück.

Der französische Film über eine Schokoladenfabrik im Burgund heißt übrigens"Les emotifs anonymes" von 2010.

Merci beaucoup et a bientot. Johanna und Pavlos
