That this was our 5th visit within the last 6 years should tell one what we find at both of the cottages. Both units (we have stayed in both) are super clean, beautifully decorated, supplied, and maintained. Theresa and Alistair are delightful hosts, and we now consider them dear friends. The rural location is peaceful, but also a perfect location to branch out daily to visit the countless places that give Bourgogne its well earned reputation for beauty, quaint villages, fine wine and food, and many ancient sites. We recommend these cottages without reserve!.
This was our second stay after too long an interval and nothing disappointed again. Clean, spacious, well equipped, comfy beds in the heart of Bourgogne and the most affable and inviting hosts in the person of Theresa and Alistair one could find anywhere. Most helpful with suggestions as to all attractions in the area. Convenient location just off of N 6 at Pouilly-en-Auxois and in a beautiful pastoral setting. Chene's description in the listing was spot on. We would unequivocally recommend this to anyone looking for a gite in this area.

Easy to get to from Calais.Clean and comfortable rural gite in a beautiful garden.Great location for a first time visit to Burgundy equidistant give or take a few kilometres for Beaune and Dijon which are a must see. Also for exploring all the famous wine towns and discovering hidden gems.
We had very good weather and enjoyed dinner on the terrace most evenings after our days out. Easy to pick up food in markets and local super markets . Friendly owners and plenty of tips for sight seeing and eating/wine.
10 days not long enough at all.
This is a delightful property in a beautiful, peaceful location. The house itself is spacious, clean and comfortable and the garden is perfect for sitting out on warm evenings listening to the birdsong. It is in an ideal location for travelling to the attractive towns and villages of Burgundy and there are lovely walks in the lanes surrounding the property. Needless to say there are many wonderful places to eat nearby and the local wines are fantastic. Theresa and Alister are the perfect hosts and are always ready to share their knowledge of the local area. We really can't recommend it highly enough.
An excellent, well appointed property in large grounds. The door is framed with roses and honeysuckle and on our arrival to be greeted by that scent, and the very welcoming Theresa and Alistair, was brilliant. The property has everything you would want, with no shortage of crockery and glassware, and there is a supply of essentials, such as cling film, salt and pepper, oil etc. We found it a very comfortable cottage.
The weather for our week wasn't great, so we didn't eat outside as much as we hoped; nor did we venture too far. However, we thoroughly enjoyed exploring Arnay le Duc, Pouilly, Mont Saint Jean and, our favourites, Chateauneuf (I need to re-watch the film Chocolat to see what I recognise) and Vandenesse. The site of SSI at Saint Agnan is worth a trip. Theresa and Alistair have provided a wealth of information about where to go, and it's worth listening to their advice. We went to Buxy Cooperative on their recommendation.
As others have commented, the cottage is out of town. It's about 5 miles from both Pouilly and Arnay le Duc, so walking to the nearest village for bread isn't an option. Beautiful Beaune is about 45 minutes away (or an hour and a half avoiding main roads and going the circuitous route as we did). The Canal de Bourgogne runs through the area, and is underground for about 2 miles at Pouilly. Seeing the tunnel and walking its route makes you realise what a fantastic feat of engineering it is. A boat trip runs daily from the port de plaisance (near the Super U in Pouilly) and may be worth taking to experience the tunnel first hand.
Contact with Theresa was easy and she sent us an excellent map and directions on how to find Chene cottage.
Wir hatten einen sehr angenehmen Aufenthalt in der Ferienwohnung in Burgund. Wie schon in anderen Bewertungen beschrieben, sind die Vermieter sehr nett und sehr hilfsbereit. Sie vermitteln das Gefühl, willkommen zu sein wie gute Freunde. Die Wohnung war wie im Prospekt beschrieben , der Garten wie ein kleiner Park. Trotz teils verregneter Urlaubstage haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen sehr gerne wieder.
