  • Descrição

    Descrição

    We are a couple of retired chaps living in rural Burgundy (France). We have a large manoir-style house in a small village in the Morvan national park, with a substantial garden. It is peaceful and beautiful, but quite remote... the nearest shops are a five minute drive away and the nearest town about 20 minutes by car, but there are some wonderful walks and it is a great place for cycling. We are retired English professionals and love to meet new people and to explore the world as well as our own area. We have lived here for 10 years and know the area well.

    The area is rich in French culture and history, with fascinating historic sites and towns nearby - ancient Gallic sites (Alesia and Bibracte), Roman ruins, Medieval villages, chateaux and Romanesque churches. The cities of Autun and Dijon are not far away, and the lovely towns of Semur-en-Auxois, Chateauneuf-en-Auxois and Beaune within a short distance. The vineyards are close by too as well as the cheese makers of Epoisses and Chaource. There are plenty of activities on the Lac de Settons (swimming, sailing, canoeing etc.), cycling and walking. Burgundy is the centre of French cuisine and a great place to explore this part of French culture. It would also be a good opportunity to brush up your English or French.

    We are hoping for some help to restore and repaint 18 window shutters - ie taking them down, scraping them, painting them and replacing them. There may also be some light gardening, if you are interested - weeding, pruning etc.

    You would have your own (private) bedroom(s) with your own shower room/toilet and a sitting room. We would love you to join us for meals, but you would also be welcome to cook for yourself. Washing and ironing facilities are available and we have a library of books, DVDs and CDs to borrow while you are here.

    The village is remote. Without your own car you would be reliant on us to take you around (which of course we are happy to do). From Saulieu (20 mins. away) there are buses to Montbard and Dijon where you can get TGV trains to Paris, or Bern, Zurich, Beaune, Chalon etc. There are many good restaurants nearby, and Autun (about 30 minutes away) has a few bars and clubs. There are cinemas in Autun and Saulieu with daily programmes (usually one film a week in the original language (mostly English), but otherwise a chance to see French language films). There is opera and theatre in Autun and Dijon. There is a good golf course quite close and swimming baths in Saulieu and Autun as well as the lakeside activities in the Morvan. There are also plenty of places to fish, play tennis etc.
