Our two-bedroom, three-bathroom house is situated directly on the banks of the Armançon river, with spectacular views of the medieval town ramparts through the weeping willow trees that gracefully drape their boughs over the river's calm water.

The house is the perfect base for exploration of the local countryside, from the vineyards of the Cote d'Or to the gorgeous wilderness of the Morvan nature park. The bedrooms in the house can sleep four people, and the house can accommodate up to six people, if two use the sofa-bed in the salon. In that case, the sofa's end tables have drawers for storage, and the doorway to the salon can be closed off with thick curtains. For further details, see our floor plans in our photos and on our website, or contact us if you have questions. PLEASE NOTE: We have an extensive website devoted to the house, with many photos, floor plans, testimonials, and a virtual tour of the property, as well as further descriptions of the region and an FAQ. Please feel free to click the website link in our contact details lower on this page, and if you enquire with us from our website, mention that you found us via Holiday Lettings. Thank you!More

The house is quirky, but charming and in such a beautiful location. We went with another couple and the house was plenty big enough. The downstairs bedroom isn't connected to the house, but we soon got used to popping up to the kitchen for our...More

Additional amenities & feature info
The house offers modern amenities including high-speed wireless internet, French and English satellite TV, a washer and dryer, and a fully-equipped kitchen including a dishwasher. Both of the bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms, and there is also a main bathroom with a large soaking bath. We have tried to furnish the house so that it is extremely comfortable and feels like a 'home away from home.' Come sit in our sunny salon and soak up the gorgeous views! The upper bedroom has a UK king bed (American queen-size) and en-suite shower room (added in 2009), as well as a sitting area, a desk with high-speed internet access (wifi is available throughout the house), a walk-in closet, and a balcony with stunning views of the river and ramparts. The lower bedroom has a flexible bedding arrangement, with your choice of either two single beds or one super-king (American king-size) bed. There is also a built-in armoire and an en-suite shower room. The lower bedroom has direct access to our riverfront patio: for more details, see our floor plans here or on our website. The house itself is in a tranquil section of town, but is only a short walk (or a very short drive/bicycle trip) to the centre of town. Semur is a modern town with all the amenities you will need during your stay -- yet it retains its ancient roots and is full of friendly, welcoming people.

About the neighbourhood
Semur-en-Auxois is a medium-sized town with a charming village feel. The people are friendly and helpful, and the town clearly cherishes its history, ranging from its role in World War I to the story of its once-powerful castle (now evidenced by the stunning ramparts visible from the house). Semur is known for being one of the most picturesque towns in Burgundy -- and yet it is also a thriving, modern town with all the amenities you will need during your stay. Any of the several boulangeries can provide you with your morning croissant, and you can sit and enjoy it at one of many cafes while you people-watch. You can purchase supplies at one of the full-sized grocery stores, or you can shop at smaller specialty shops: meat from the butcher's, cheese from the deli, wine from the excellent ...
