" La Bergerie" recently converted into a cottage, offers many advantages for a pleasant stay in the Morvan Natural Park, a paradise for hikers. It offers not only a breathtaking view without vis-à-vis, on the undulating meadows and surrounding forests, but, again, it is only fifteen kilometers of Autun, city of art and history, and forty kilometers of the most prestigious vineyards of Burgundy. Spacious, the "vintage" decor very neat, where it is good to rest with a wood stove in case of cooler evenings, also has, besides the above amenities, a beautiful terrace with table, parasol and garden chairs.

Remarkable little quiet cottage in Burgundy ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ - a quiet, tasteful retreat in the Burgundy countryside, far from traffic and commotion. La Grande Verrière is a delightful 2-3 km walk from the rental, past fields and forest along dirt roads and lovely trails. There you will find a friendly little restaurant (Chez Cecile) and country store which surprisingly has everything you might need for a one or two week stay ; meats, fresh cheeses, vegetables and fresh bread every morning. They even made gluten-free bread nearby, for my wife by order for Sunday, they day after we arrived. Charolais cows greeted us each morning with their mooing, just bordering our yard and the views from the yard and house are really stunning and expansive. We hiked a few of the gr trails to adjacent towns like St-Léger-sous-Beuvray and even though it rained a lot (mid- Sept) we were able to enjoy the outdoors without much discomfort. The house itself (la bergerie) does look like a converted sheep barn, but the inside is very tastefully laid out and decorated. There are plenty of pots and pans, dishes and silverware and also a washing machine (not listed in the description) which spins to 1400rpm. The proprietors (Pierre and Michèle) were very kind to us and provided us with useful advice and everything we needed to enjoy our time there - they also gave us a drying rack as we couldn't use the outdoor line while we were there. We cooked several of our meals inside and the induction cooktop was fast and very convenient (I had not used one previously), and we had no trouble at all operating comfortably in the kitchen. Tall ceilings with interesting drapes and window treatments, and the tall windows produce very nice lighting inside the house. Very clean air inside and out and the bed was large and comfortable - we slept well there, perhaps too well as we didn't get up as early as planned to complete all of our planned activities. This was a very comfortable and relaxing place to stay. We would really like to return again in a couple of years. Many nice activities in the area like Mont Beuvray (Bibracte), Autun, Beaune, Vézelay, but the local walks and towns that are less visited and quiet are a treat to see in a relaxed manner. We stayed one week, but two would have been ideal.
