BFB's Overview

Beautiful outside and in, this charming stone barn conversion has been given a sensitive yet chic conversion to make it a stylish 3-bedroom retreat ideal for a family of four or five, plus babies. Its friendly owners live onsite but maintain a discrete distance despite being on call for tips and advice and, best of all, fantastic meal deliveries from gourmet 3-course dinners to home-made pizza delivery, thanks to the fact that one of them is a fully trained French chef.

Guests find that relaxation comes easy here thanks to well furnished interiors complete with fabulous handmade kitchen, ensuite bedrooms offering large comfortable beds and stunning views over the valley and village below, not to mention the lovely furnished terrace which adjoins the living area via patio doors and the handy services such as pre-arrival shopping, optional meal deliveries, pre-bookable babysitting and a long list of baby gear, all of which help to ensure that even packing and travelling can be stress-free.

The barn enjoys a rural location in the heart of Burgundy's beautiful Cote d'Or counstryside but it is surprisingly convenient too, being less than 10 minutes from the nearest town with bank, supermarket and petrol, and 10-30minutes from the famously beautiful towns of Flavigny-sur-Ouzerain, the backdrop for the film 'Chocolat', and Semur-en-Auxois, with its Cinderella-style ramparts, pedestrian streets, cafes and restaurants. The family-friendly Parc de l'Auxois, with its animal park, rides and high season fun pool with toddler friendly slides and fountains is also within a short drive.

Accommodation Overview:
This attractive barn conversion sleeps 5+ cots in 3 bedrooms of which two benefit from ensuites. The house has its own private terrace garden and shares wider grounds with the owners house, which is on the same plot.
Downstairs, there's an open-plan living/dining kitchen area with a lovely hand made kitchen. The kitchen is well equipped with full size electric oven with gas burner, microwave oven, ample crockery, cutlery, glassware and serving bowls. There is also a washing machine for guests use. The rest of the downstairs comprises a dining table for six and lounge area seating five comfortably.There's an English TV and a DVD player with a large selection of films for all ages. The lounge area's log burning stove makes it cosy in winter, whilst the two French doors opening out onto the sunny, south facing terrace, furnished for al fresco dining plus sun loungers and barbeque, brings the outside in during Summer evenings.
Upstairs, there is a spacious and light master bedroom with a large double bed ( 160x200), console tables and lamps either side. A walk in wardrobe and drawers provide plenty of storage and an electric radiator warms the room, should it be needed in cooler months. This room boasts its own modern en-suite shower room with oversized basin and shower cubicle, and stunning views across the village and valley. The twin bedroom is decorated in attractive blue tones and has two single beds (190x200). It also has wonderful views and plenty of storage. A few steps lead up to another en-suite bathroom with a large basin and shower cubicle. Electric radiators warm the space in cooler months. The single bedroom is a small but charming room ideal for a third child or single relative. It boasts a pretty old fashioned French day-bed (80x190) and a chest of drawers. An antique window opens onto the upstairs landing where there is a large picture window looking up the hill to the village Chateau providing plenty of light for the room. Across the landing there is a toilet with basin for the occupier of this room. All bedrooms have space for a cot, of which two can be provided.
Outside, the house has its own furnished deck and terrace complete with sun loungers, dining set and BBQ.
