CHARDONNAY – Saône-et-Loire – Sleeps 2
One Bedroom spacious apartment in converted farmhouse complex
En La Marre is a splendid ancient farmhouse set amidst forests and meadows in a tranquil rural Burgundy location, 4 km from the country town of Couches and within easy reach of Beaune, the wine capital of Burgundy. and Autun, which was the former Roman capital of the area. The TGV railway station is at Montchanin (Le Creusot) and is only 15 minutes away by road.
The residential English owners Chris & Judith Mosedale have lived here permanently since 1990 and they are happy to share their local knowledge with their guests. This might be to make a recommendation for a suitable restaurant, which Judith will happily book for you or to recommend which vineyard to visit or where the best market is held. The list of ideas and opportunities is endless!!
On arrival at En La Marre all guests are invited to a welcome drink or two at 6pm to meet other guests and be updated on local events, markets and general information.
A communal BBQ is held on Thursday evenings for those interested and weather permitting – each couple contributes a food dish and some wine; anyone with a talent such as singing, playing an instrument, story or poetry telling etc is given an ideal opportunity on this occasion to entertain us all.
En La Marre caters for couples as the apartments are not suitable for children of any age.
Chardonnay is one of 6 spacious, independent apartments which are set around a delightful flower-bedecked courtyard in which there is a well stocked herb garden at the disposal of our guests. The swimming pool provides the finishing touch, but there is also a private tennis court adjacent to the Chateau de Dracy in the nearby village of Dracy (3kms), which is available to guests free of charge (tennis attire required).
CHARDONNAY is a spacious, light and airy apartment situated on the ground floor of the original farmhouse. It features 2 wood/coal burning stoves, and a wealth of white-painted timber beams. The spacious kitchen/dinning area has easy access to the veranda on which there is a gas fired BBQ. The toilet/shower room with large walk-in shower is off the kitchen. There is a large comfortable living room area furnished attractively with antiques. paintings, books, magazines & tourist information. Off this is the sleeping area with a romantic curtained-off king size bed, again with access to the veranda.
The apartment is cool in the summer and cosy at other times. The large veranda runs along the front of the apartment and faces onto the courtyard. Being all on one level on the ground floor this apartment is the most suitable for anyone with agility problems.
Bikes are available at a modest rental.
