A real quiet 'retreat' with garden on the banks of the river Armancon. 2 mins from the medieval town centre with restaurants, cafés and bakery for your morning croissant.
Perfect for outdoor living : WiFi, Terrace, BBQ.

The space

Nestled beneath the ramparts of the medieval town of Semur en Auxois, this former fisherman’s cottage has been completely restored in 2010 with style by Patricia and local craftsman.
Oak, local stone & family antiques add to the character and charm of this ‘petite maison’.
Once you walk through the little red garden gate, the ‘petite maison’ and its setting capture your imagination with breath taking views of the river and beyond.
This very special garden, enclosed by a stone walled on one side and the river on the other, the leafy green garden and the river carry you away to a world of your own.
Perfect romantic getaway.
Great for relaxing and be away from it all.
WiFi connection!.. so you are not completely disconnected!

Patricia's place was absolutely wonderful! Making a fire and cooking a meal over the flame next to the river will definitely be a memorable experience on our European trip. We loved the ability to walk to town for supplies and Semur-en-auxois was truly beautiful! We will definitely be reccomending this spot to our friends.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the riverside cottage. As described the cottage is very small but the space is perfectly furnished and wonderfully restored. Everything is very handy and good to use. With the weather beeing fine, it is wonderful to sit in the garden and look at the river at daytime and we loved to sit at the outdoor fireplace at night. The cottage is located within easy walking distance to the nice city center with numerous restaurants. The communication with Patricia before and during our stay was perfect and very warm and friendly. Thank you again, Patricia, for everything! We hope to come back!

Patricia is the most wonderful host we have ever come across. She went completely out of her way to ensure that we are taken care of and that we are comfortable. Her cottage is fully equipped with everything a traveller could possibly need. It is well maintained, clean, super cozy and well located. The garden and fire pit next to the river made our visit complete. We loved our stay at Patricia's cottage and can recommend it to any and everyone.

Un séjour en couple parfait dans la charmante maisonnette de Patricia. Patricia est gentiment venue nous accueillir et s'assurer que nous étions bien installés. La communication à ete très facile et claire avant notre arrivée et une fois à Semur nous avons profité d'un environnement calme, parfait pour un week-end ressourçant et plein de charme avec une ville pittoresque et des lieux touristiques à qq minutes de voitures. Merci beaucoup pour ce séjour! :)

Très bon accueil. Patricia est à la fois discrète et chaleureuse. Maison magique et minuscule, très bien agencée. L'échelle pour accéder à la chambre, très stable et solide, ajoute du piment à l'installation. j'ai passé un séjour très agréable et "douillet".

Merci pour votre commentaire, je penserai a mettre une nappe, il y avait des sets de table dans le tiroir mais vous ne les avez peut etre pas vu, Patricia
