Charming Ancient Renovated House in Asquins Vezelay

Space 1,668 sq. ft.
Property type house

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 7)

Our house is a completely independent building located in a nice quiet village near Vézelay in the National Park of Morvan.

The garden, carefully tended by the owners is completely enclosed. The house was originally built in the 1850s and has been totally renovated and refurbished by the owners in the traditional style of the area a few years ago ; yet they added all modern facilities to make it a comfortable and pleasant place to spend your holidays in. Free internet access (Wifi) .

Asquins is in the vineyard of Burgundy; you will be able to taste its wine, swim in its river and of course visit Vezelay, one of the most famous Roman Abbaye in France. The Park of Morvan in which the village is set is very famous for its lakes and nice landscapes.

The Northern part of Burgundy has a lot to offer for holiday makers fond of good food and wine, nice scenery, history and outdoor activities. Our gite has the label 'gite de charme ' of the Gites de France and Odile, the owner speaks fluent English.

Asquins is a two and a half hours' drive from Paris (220kms) and it takes an hour and fifteen minutes to go to Dijon and Southern Burgundy.

About Odile Hoog Rousseau

We have been living in this village for about 25 years ; we know the area pretty well and we like to share the knowledge we have of the area (historical background, outdoor activites, gastronomy...)

Odile is an English teacher in Avallon, the nearest ciry and Marc has just retired ; However he was a building contractor and he has renovated part of the house . He likes gardening and is doing his best for the garden to look great in all seasons !

Lovely well equipped house

  • 5 of 5

Great house with lots of space and garden. Only two of us in a house with five bedrooms. Well equipped modern kitchen in a house with lots of character but modern bathrooms. Everything you could possibly require in a holiday house. Odile and Mark have made it a first class property and it was a pleasure to meet them. Two miles down the road from Vezelay and so much to do and see in this area. House is down narrow lane behind the cafe but room to park large car in yard ....even our BMW X5. Many Thanks Odile we had a wonderful week and would recommend your house to anyone. Xx

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house, with lots of character ( there is a bread oven from the era gone by, decorating the living room ). The very nicely decorated five bedrooms are very clean and comfortable.We loved the little town of Asquins as well as other small towns in the area.It was like stepping back in time. Odile was very kind and helpful , she even brought us some vegetables from her garden.The place is very well situated for all sorts of sightseeing activities : castles , churches , caves , archeological sites , lakes , you name it , and the countryside is just gorgeous.We had a truly memorable vacation and we would definitely come back in the future.
