La Vielle Maison in Côte-d'Or, a cottage in Burgundy: La Vielle Maison exterior

Sleeps six in spacious house with wide terrace overlooking lawn & river


La Vieille Maison was probably the dower house to the original chateau. Like Le Manoir, it has very spacious rooms, and a lovely outlook across the lawn towards the river. It has been modernised to some extent but retains much of its original rustic character.

Ground floor:
Large kitchen with tiled floor, old fireplace with stove, an original stone sink, dishwasher, fridge, induction cooker, microwave and larder, large wooden table & door out to wide, flowery eating terrace.
Large wood panelled sitting room with wood stove in old fireplace, comfortable seating & long oak refectory table.
First floor:
Two large pretty bedrooms, one with double bed and en suite salle d’eau (washbasin and bidet),
One with twin beds that can clip together to form a double, and en suite bathroom (bath, washbasin and WC, with door through to the salle d’eau)
Second floor:
Attractively beamed but smaller attic twin bedroom with a sloping
ceiling. Adjacent shower room with wash basin and WC.

The Vieille Maison has a long, flowery, stone eating terrace with views across the lawn to the river. It, like the Manoir, has sole use of the lawn in front of its house and its terrace, has access to all the rest of the park and rivers, and shares the pool and the laundry room if there are tenants in either of the other two houses.

Although the wifi internet access does not currently reach the Vieille Maison, it is possible to access it from the communal area behind the Manoir, or from by the river at the end of the front lawn, and sometimes from the Vieille Maison's own terrace and the laundry room. We intend to get it in the Vieille Maison by 2018.

A warning that we hope will not discourage you from coming:
Like the Manoir, La Vieille Maison is not grand, but for a peaceful holiday in an idyllic place, Thoires is excellent.

But both houses are old and in the middle of the country, and though they're comfortably furnished and have reasonable modern facilities, the bedroom floors are wood with rugs, not fitted carpets, and if there’s a storm the lights may occasionally go out! We try to keep the wildlife at bay, but can't guarantee that a field mouse, a vole or a spider may not occasionally visit. We certainly don’t want to discourage you from coming, but we hope that you'll visit Thoires for what it is, not for what it is not and cannot be.

We don't like rules, but do ask that tenants do not smoke inside the houses, and not to leave their stubs around if they must smoke outside

Prices include linen, electricity, bikes etc, but exclude small per capita charge for more than 2 people. Tenants in the big houses are asked to pay for one hour's cleaning a week.
