About N. Suomalainen

The house served in 1940-50's as a farmhouse and garden for a local vegetable grower. At the property were found letters from that time from local shop-owners inquiring the current going price for lettuce and other vegetables! The location was ideal for vegetable farming thanks to the sunny slope position and its private water source. The property was acquired by the previous owner in 2007, who made a major renovation turning the simple farmhouse into a holiday home and building the pool. The ownership was changed in 2014. The current owner only rents out the house during limited number of weeks in summer, otherwise keeping it for personal leasure-time use.

N. Suomalainen purchased this Farmhouse in 2014

Why N. Suomalainen chose Chiddes

The house is situated at an amazing location with a spectacular view over the rolling hills. It is rare to find an available holiday house at such a peaceful location, with no immediate neighbors, with a private pool, with such a view and rustic atmosphere. The house is only rented out a few weeks in the summer, otherwise remaining at the private use of the owner. The house is a perfect place in summer for those who want to relax in the sun, enjoy breakfast by the pool and watch the scenery, have walks in the nature as well as enjoy all the good Burgundy can offer for wine tasting, nice restaurants and familiarizing with the historic locations.

What makes this Farmhouse unique

Spectacular scenery, private-use pool, large garden and a private forest. Large terrace overlooking the pool and the scenery. Wonderful rustic, old stone-house. A private watch-tower to see over the whole 10-15 km valley.

                                                                  This is a charming cottage overlooking the valley. The views from the terrace and pool area are spectacular. The property is very private and secluded. We would describe the property as rustic but comes complete with all mod cons that made the stay very comfortable. The owner was not able to greet us however we had a good line of communication and Nina's instructions were very clear and helpful. Nina contacted us a few days after we had left to ask how things were during our stay. Nearby places of interest are the towns of Cluny and Paray-Le-Monial. Excellent bicycle country if you like rolling terrain. Would definitely stay again if we found ourselves in this area.
