Our cottage is in Varzy, Burgundy. Easily sleeps 6 and can sleep around 10 with fold-out beds in attic and sitting room, and even more if you bring your own sleeping bags. This is basically a home away from home and we’ve made sure it’s provisioned with basically everything you’ll need!

Cottage contains:

  • 3 separate bedrooms, one with ensuite.
  • 2 additional bathrooms with shower and toilet.
  • Cosy sitting room on ground floor, with a fold-out sofa.
  • Dining/entrance area and small kitchen, easily sit 6 at the table.
  • An extra room on ground floor where you can store all your luggage etc.
  • All your linen and towels, as well as some toiletries and cleaning products.
  • A top-floor attic (living room), with original wooden beams, fold out bed and furniture, accessed by spiral staircase. A flat-screen smart TV which you can watch your own Netflix account, digital channels, youtube etc.
  • Oodles of books! Enough wine glasses, plates, cutlery and kitchenware for more than 25 people!
  • A small courtyard, pots of various herbs, table, chairs and umbrella.
  • A semi-stocked bar in the attic that you can use, and top up before you leave for the next booking! It’s based on an honesty system. If you drink it, buy a replacement bottle.
  • Extraordinarily fast Internet (beats anything we get in Australia).
  • Fridge, oven, toaster, kettle, washing machine, iron, portable clothes line. Everything you need to cook a Sunday roast. Also a small electric bbq for courtyard use.
