Le Marronnier in Saône-et-Loire, a cottage in Burgundy: Le Marronnier exterior

Weekly peak season rate only £1,250 & availability still in June & July!

C'mon guys - grab a bargain! Our lovely gîte, Le Marronnier, named after the large chestnut tree which guards the entrance, is a 250 year old farmhouse with private swimming pool situated on the edge of a small, pretty village in an area in the south of Burgundy called the Brionnais. This picturesque & largely unknown area is ideal for holidays with the true flavour of France.

Secluded with panoramic views over the rolling Brionnais & Roannais countryside, this character farmhouse has been sympathetically renovated & furnished to provide a mix of traditional features with modern facilities.

From the gates, the drive sweeps down to the house where there is plenty of parking (one space in the hay barn acting as a shaded car port) beyond which is a terrace perfect for dining ‘au plein air’!

Through a gate to your left is the garden measuring just under half an acre which is mainly laid to lawn & bordered on one side by a tall laurel hedge, a row of conifers on another affording complete privacy whilst the third side is open allowing you to sit & enjoy a glass of wine looking out to the countryside beyond.

This is where the totally private swimming pool (9m x 4.5m) is located. The pool is bordered by a paved area where you can relax in the sun or there is leafy shade under the trees. There is also a barbecue area handily situated just beyond the terrace.

The front door opens onto the spacious dining area with table & seating for 8 with stereo with lead for MP3 or iPod. To the left is the sitting room complete with beamed ceiling and furnished with comfortable sofas & TV/DVD. There are two cupboards (which used to be the original door & window to the one-roomed farmhouse!) containing board games, books & DVDs. Both of these rooms have tiled floors which help keep the house cool during hot weather.

To the right of the dining room is the open plan, galley style kitchen area (hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher & plenty of cooking utensils, crockery & cutlery), downstairs loo, laundry room (washing machine, iron & ironing board plus sink) & storage room for cleaning equipment – all of these rooms are also tiled for easy cleaning and maintenance.

Up a short flight of stairs, there are 4 bedrooms – two twins & a double with a king size bed at the front of the house overlooking the garden & a further double bedroom near the two smart shower rooms. All bedrooms have wardrobes complete with a variety of quality wooden hangers, chest of drawers, chair, hairdryer & fan.

All linen is provided including bed linen, towels & swimming towels - even tea towels! All beds are made up ready for your arrival.

Why not have a look at our other gîte, L’Ecluse, in nearby Briennon (property 211689) which also has availability for June and July 2017.

Finally, we're sure you've heard of scams where fraudsters have taken payment without a property to rent out. Please be assured that, after 10 years renting out gîtes, your payment is safe with us.
