Complete and comfortable gite
This is our third stay with Stuart and Jules and they have all been very enjoyable. The gite is fully equipped with everything a traveler could need during their stay, including excellent WiFi. The gite is a separate house all on one level with a nice walled garden and private parking. Stuart and Jules live adjacent - they were always available for assistance, but were not intrusive.
a perfect stay in a homely home
Rest and peace in a beautiful landscape. A very nice house and symphatic landlords!
We like to come again.
Thanks for your nice comments and we’re glad you enjoyed your stay in the little barn. You’re both welcome back anytime
Everything was perfect
Our hosts were perfect, helpful and informative. The meticulous attention to detail in the property could not be faulted and the house ideal for or holiday.
We would highly recommend a stay and we plan to return in the near future.
Hi George and Katy
Thank you very much for your great review, it’s nice to know you liked the barn so much.
You’re very welcome to return anytime!
This is the second time we have stayed here - and it remains as good as the first time. Situated in a quiet village where everyone is friendly, the gite is exceptional. It has everything you could ask for. Exceptional quality and value for money and the hosts are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
Comfort and relaxation in unspoiled Burgundy countryside
The LIttle Barn was the perfect place to spend a few days. Beautifully renovated and tastefully decorated throughout, it was also very spacious. The secluded garden was an ideal place to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. We were made very welcome by Stuart and Jules who were happy to offer help when needed but equally happy to respect our privacy. We would certainly return and would have no hesitation in recommending it as a base to explore a very beautiful part of France.
Lovely private gite in a typical French rural village setting.
Lovely private gite with walled garden. Hosts on hand when necessary but discrete. Pleasant typical French village aspect. Facilities clean and well equipped.
Viserny is situated in the Pays de l'Auxois area of the Côte d'Or 'département' of Burgundy, roughly half way between CHABLIS & BEAUNE.
There are NO shops in the village; local services & businesses can be found 12-14km away in Semur-en-Auxois (12km), Montbard (14km) or Epoisses (12km).
The medieval, walled town of SEMUR-EN-AUXOIS, sitting atop a pink granite promontory above the River Armançon, is very picturesque with its ramparts, towers and cobbled streets.
EPOISSES, world-renowned for its pungent (!) and creamy AOC (PDO) cheese, also has a small château open for visits.
MONTBARD has a TGV (high-speed train) station with a regular service to PARIS, taking a fraction over an hour. There is also 1 direct TGV train per day in each direction between Montbard and Marne-la-Vallée (Disneyland Paris), Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport (terminal 2) and Lille (Eurostar station).
The BURGUNDY CANAL passes though MONTBARD and is perfect for a walk or cycle ride; the canal's tow path now forms part of the European "GREEN WAY" CYCLE ROUTE - bikes can be hired in Montbard, Venarey-les-Laumes and Pouilly-en-Auxois to cycle along sections of the canal.
Places of HISTORICAL & CULTURAL INTEREST in the local area include the superb UNESCO World Heritage sites of FONTENAY ABBEY and the hilltop basilica at VEZELAY. ALESIA - site of the Gauls' last stand against Julius Caesar in 52BC - is just 20 minutes away.
Other places of interest include the Forges de BUFFON, the Burgundian Renaissance châteaux of TANLAY & ANCY-LE-FRANC, the small town of NOYERS-SUR-SEREIN, the hilltop villages of CHATEAUNEUF-EN-AUXOIS and FLAVIGNY-SUR-OZERAIN.
Further afield, you'll find good markets in AVALLON, CHABLIS, MONTBARD, SAULIEU and even BEAUNE & CHALON-SUR-SAONE.
DIJON & AUXERRE are each just over an hour's drive away.
For WINE LOVERS, the ROUTE DES GRANDS CRUS winds through the Côte de Nuits & Côte de Beaune vineyards. BEAUNE can be reached in under an hour and, to the north-west of Viserny, the vineyards of CHABLIS, IRANCY & SAINT BRIS are also within easy reach.
If you are interested in buying Burgundy wines, we can put you in touch with a bilingual colleague who runs private wine tours and/or tastings in the region (needs booking before arrival)..
For those who enjoy OUTDOOR PURSUITS in the countryside, the immediate area around Viserny is good for walking, running and cycling; the mostly hedged lanes are very quiet with numerous walking paths across a mixed landscape of small-scale arable & livestock fields and wooded areas.
Not far away, the MORVAN natural regional park is a great place for walkers and cyclists to explore. Water enthusiasts will enjoy its lakes, some of which offer dinghies and small catamarans for hire.
FOR BIRD WATCHERS/CYCLISTS - we know a local bilingual enthusiast who can accompany you on a CYCLING or WALKING trip (half or full day) tailored to suit your level of fitness (needs booking before arrival).
HOT AIR BALLOONING is also a wonderful experience - early morning or evening - weather & number of passengers permitting (needs booking before arrival)
