Le Manoir in Côte-d'Or, a cottage in Burgundy: Le Manoir exterior

3½ en-suite bedrooms sleeps 7, pool, river, tranquillity

Our Manor house is between Champagne, to the North, and Burgundy to the South. From it you can visit Romanesque churches or Burgundian Châteaux, taste wines, walk, fish, ride or think. The Manor and its park are in the centre of a tiny village, but with its surrounding wall and rivers, it's very private. There's a small café/restaurant in each of two adjacent villages both 2kms away, and many supermarkets and restaurants in our local town, Chatillon sur Seine (12kms) which also has a lovely 11th century Romanesque church, an excellent museum and tennis courts. Other places to visit include the renowned Fontenay Abbey, Vezelay, Troyes and, to the north, the champagne vineyards near Bar Sur Seine, or, further south, the illustrious Burgundian ones between Dijon and Beaune.

We've got a 12 metre swimming pool, rivers, a rowing boat, wooded paths, and a huge lawn for croquet, badminton, football or cricket etc. Though the pool is shared with the dower house (La Vieille Maison) and the cottage, each of the two bigger houses has it's own terrace and lawn area and they don't overlook each other. The cottage is in a courtyard behind the big houses.

There's lots of space for each house to be private, though children do tend to seek each other out to play together. Several three generation family groups have become regular visitors, as have people who take just one house. Perhaps the key words to describe Thoires are 'space' and 'tranquility'. It“s not grand, but for a peaceful holiday in an idyllic place, Thoires is excellent, though for its drawbacks, it might be as well to check the warning on the Vieille Maison page!

Large salon with polished stone floor, log fire, comfortable seating, EnglishTV/DVD, extensive bookshelves, formal dining table.
Large well-equipped kitchen (dishwasher, fridge/freezer, electric cooker, microwave, food processor etc, walk-in larder, long eating table, 2 tall windows across lawn to river, and a door out to its wide flowery stone paved eating terrace.
