Nestled in a valley between Épinac and Nolay, this beautiful stone house in Saisy has lovely views of the rolling countryside and easy access to walking trails. It is ideal for buyers who are not only looking for a picturesque holiday home, but also desire a property with amenities close to hand. The medieval town of Nolay is just three kilometres away, with its traditional covered market, and the city of Beaune is 30 minutes from the front door.
Of course, Burgundy’s vineyards are world- famous, and wine connoisseurs and gourmands will appreciate the local availability of such classic regional fare as coq au vin and boeuf à la Bourguignonne. You will be spoilt for choice with the area’s range of restaurants, which runs from the reasonably priced to the Michelin-starred.
Numerous wine tours are on offer nearby, which are excellent for familiarising yourself with the area’s award-winning vineyards and also for expanding your own cellar!
This three-bedroom house has recently been renovated and boasts double glazing, insulated ceilings, new parquet floors and a wood-burner. The ground floor comprises a large living room covered with traditional hexagonal clay tiles or tommettes, a corner kitchen and dining area, and a convenient downstairs bedroom with large French windows which open onto the South-facing courtyard. Next to this bedroom is a large shower room and WC.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms, the larger featuring a high, beamed ceiling and access to the loft of the attached barn. An open outbuilding in the 1,000sqm garden provides shade for alfresco dining.
The excellent setting and characteristics of this property would see it work very well as a holiday home, particularly if you need to accommodate friends and extended family, and there is also the potential to develop the attached barn.
