la Petite Maison in Saône-et-Loire, a cottage in Burgundy: la Petite Maison exterior

Character Cottage in large gardens, short walk into village with shops & cafes

Fontaines is a picturesque village with five ancient washhouses, the last one having been built in 1927. Located between Beaune and Chalon-sur-Saone it is close the Chateaux of Germolles, and Rully. The Canal du Centre is a link in the waterways connecting the Atlantic with the Mediterranean Sea, its towpaths have been developed to provide an ideal facility for cycling and walking in a tranquil environment. And then there is the wine and gastronomic offerings of the local villages.

La Petite Maison is a nineteenth century stone-built cottage set within a one hectare (2.5 acre) garden of the owner's property. It has a large living/dining room with an open plan kitchen, and ground floor shower room. Upstairs is double-bedded room and a twin-bedded gallery room. Central heating - cool in summer, warm in winter. Separate street entrance to cottage; off-road parking.

The village has two bakers, a grocer, two hairdressers, chemist, two doctors, a dentist, a café and an hotel with restaurant, are within walking distance. Restaurants, swimming, cultural, walking, cycling and sight-seeing are within easy reach. Spend the evening relaxing in the courtyard with wine from local domaines.

Prices are for two persons and a baby in a cot. Children under 5 years are free, however, a supplementary fee of £55 per week is required for each additional guest. Linen and towels are provided. Gas, water and electricity are included in the price. Since April 2013 the local authority has required us to collect on arrival a tax of €1.00 per person per night from all guests above the age of 12 years.

The kitchen is well equipped with crockery and cooking utensils. The washing machine is installed in a separate external room, that also provides storage for the BBQ and bicycles.

WiFi and a range of books are provided.

We have a cot and mattress; and a high-chair for a baby, but parents will need to bring sheets and blankets. We have a child and toddler kit available for parents who do not want to travel with a mass of equipment.

The grounds cover a little more than one hectare or around 2.5 acres. There are a number of outdoor games and a couple of sun-loungers on which to relax the summer sun. We have two bicycles that might be available for your use, and additional cycles can be hired locally.

Burgundy wine is renowned throughout the world, and la Petite Maison is central to the vineyards of Mercurey - Rully - Givry - Santenay - Beaune - Meursault - Pommard - St. Aubin - Volnay - Puligny Montrachet. The local villages host a range of restaurants from the 3-star Maison Lameloise at Chargy, to the more humble, but nevertheless highly praised by guests, Hotel du Nord in Fontaines.

Whether your search is for interesting wines, good food, swimming, rock climbing, walking, cycling, culture, history, or relaxation, your stay at la Petite Maison will not go unrewarded.
