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, 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

Ein wunderbarer Ort

  • 5 of 5

Wenige Autominuten von Cluny gelegen, ist das Ferienhaus ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für alle, die kulturgeschichtlich interessiert sind und die Ruhe und Entspannung der Natur suchen. Die Gastgeber Pascale und Pascal haben einen wundervollen Ort geschaffen, der alles bereit hält, was man sich von einem Ferienhaus wünschen kann. Vom Empfang bis zur Verabschiedung darf man sich einer umsichtigen, herzlichen und dennoch sehr diskreten Gastfreundschaft sicher sein. Auf diesem Weg möchten wir uns bei Pascale und Pascal nochmals herzlich bedanken für diese sorglose Urlaubswoche.

Great place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

What a place to relax! Beautiful, breathtaking view, quiet village, comfortable cottage with everything you need.

We spend two weeks in the cottage of Pascale and Pascal Dumez and had a great time.

When we arrived we recieved a warm welcome by the owners and got a short tour through the cottage. We could place our bicycles in their garage.

The cottage was clean and well equiped and maintained. We are not used to an electric bbq so we didn't use that very much.

Information about the region and places to visit was available and if we wanted more information or tips for visits we could ask the owners. They were always very helpful, yet discret.

For those who love great wines of France this is the place to be. Great white wines like Pouilly Fuissé and Saint Véran, and beautiful red wines of the Beaujolais.

A special recommendation is the Hameau du Vin in Romaneche Thorin if you like to know about (and taste) Beaujolais wines.

We liked touring through the beautiful countryside and visit villages like Cluny, Tournus and les Pierres Dorées.

The region is also great to make bicycletrips (although not untrained), to take a walk or to go geocaching.

We like to thank Pascale and Pascal again for having us stay in their cottage.

Best wishes

Rob and Mona

Kleinod in Südburgund

  • 5 of 5

Wir können uns den positiven Bewertungen unserer Vorgänger vollumfänglich anschließen, möchten aber einige uns wichtige Punkte nochmals herausstellen.

Diese Feriebhaus ist einzigartig, denn es geht hier nicht nur um die gute Einrichtung und Ausstattung, denn auch durch die Liebe zum Detail in allen Räumen wird dem Gast schon von Beginn an eine hohe Wertschätzung vermittelt.

Wer der Hektik des Alltags entfliehen will, ist hier genau richtig; der Blick in die weite Hügellandschaft ist wohltuend und beruhigend. Trotzdem ist man nach 10 Minuten Autofahrt in Cluny, zum Erledigen der Einkäufe und zum Bummeln, besonders am Markttag.Ebenfalls lassen sich vom Haus aus kürzere und längere Wanderungen unternehmen, in einer fast menschenleeren Landschaft..

Die Betreuung von Pascale & Pascal war kompetent, herzlich, aber auch diskret.

Insofern ergänzen sich Gastgeber und Ferienhaus in einer schönen Weise.

Nochmals herzlichen Dank für die "7+1 Woche" in eurem Ferienhaus.

Liebe Grüße

Peter Susanne
