This tranquil and bright traditional house looks out over pastures and a medievel chateau. It sleeps eight in typical Burgundy village surroundings, that offer history, beauty, cuisine, walking, cycling, spirituality and relaxation. Details and a two year blog of our comings and goings at

The four bedroomed house which is brightly decorated, well furnished and comfortably fitted is located in a large closed garden with 7 cherry, 2 peach and a plum trees. It is situated on the edge of Le Gros Chigy bordering on pastures on two sides and looks out to the medieval Le Gros Chigy Chateau. The village of around forty houses is part of the Saint Andrés le Desért commune. The house is furnished to accommodate eight adults although is large enough to accommodate more.

Le Gros Chigy only has a home based wine and traditional foods seller but Salornay Sur Guye 4 kilometers away provides all neccesities through small shops, while Cluny 12 km further has supermarkets, hardware warehouses, petrol stations and a range of speciality shops. Thirty kilometers away in the opposite direction, Montceau Les Mines is a small city with all amenities and a TGV station.

The beautiful green and rolling countryside makes cycling, especially on the voie vert and walking favorite actlivites.

Cluny, Taize and La Boulaye represent the old, new and eastern centers of spirituality around Le Gros Chigy, while almost every village has a church with some cultural or archetural significane even if very small congregations.

Restaurants, bakeries, patisseries and a variety of food activities are scattered throughout the area with some of our favorites being being Papylion a cafe selling hundreds of beers from across Europe, Cafe de Gladie selling frogs legs and Charolaise steaks and the van outside the Salornay hotel selling unique area linked pizza on Wednesdays.

Periodic markets held in many villages throughout the year are interesting for the local colour as much as the food and variety of other goods sold there. In Summer most villages hold a vide-greniers, which would be called a jumble or boot sale, which offer a fascinating range of used goods for sale.

Arts and craft abound, including sculpture, ceramics, pottery, painting, weaving, photography and woodwork. Of particular interest are the miniatures of "Miniatures en Bois" at Bonnay, the potter who made the basin for the upstairs bathroom in The House at Le Gros Chigy and the Galaerie Artisinale et Goumande at Cormatin.
