Ancien resto is in the middle of the quiet village of Marcilly-Ogny in the depth of the Burgundy countryside. Originally the village's restaurant/ bar/ general store, the house is fully equipped for a family holiday and is conveniently located for trips to the Morvan National Park, historic Dijon and Vezelay and, of course, the vineyards of the Côte d'Or and the beautiful town of Beaune. Nearby lakes offer the opportunity to swim, sail and windsurf. There are two Golf courses close by. The countryside around the village is ideal for walking and bicycling… and then of course there's the wine and food….. You can either provide for yourselves or visit excellent restaurants in Saulieu, Chailly, Chateauneuf or Arnay le Duc.

Pets (cats, dogs, etc) - We are happy to welcome pets to Ancien Resto during your stay. However, we'd be grateful if you would remove any “gifts” they leave around the garden as guests who follow you into the house may not appreciate these. They are a health hazard for children. If the “gifts” need to be cleared by the housekeeper/gardener, there will be a minimum charge of €40 for their time and inconvenience. Please also note that Dogs (or other pets) are not permitted to go in the swimming pool
Our group consisted of six adults and five children aged between 14 months and 5 years old. The house was a great size with plenty of space for us all. The outdoor terrace and bbq provided a great spot for most of our meals. The supermarkets in the nearby towns provided us with all we needed, and the housekeeper was also very helpful, kindly arranging for a delivery of bread and croissants upon our arrival. The selection of games and the swing set were fantastic for the kids, and the swimming pool was used several times a day!
