This is by far the best gite I have ever stayed at. The accommodation was superb, spotlessly clean, very well appointed and huge! The beds are very comfortable!
The owners were so welcoming and made us feel really special. Fresh peaches and figs from the garden were out of this world. There was also sunloungers and a bbq available for us to use.
The local area is beautiful, vinyards galore and Tournus is a lovely town to walk around. We also visted Geneva and Chamonix although a good drive away, well worth it.
All in all a wonderful holiday. Thank you Jaques and Mitou
An amazing home in Burgundy
Our family loved this home. A newly remodeled, incredibly charming, centuries old farmhouse, was the perfect location for our week long trip in Burgundy. The house is spacious with more than enough room for our family of three. It is nicely decorated and has a lovely and fully specked kitchen which was great as we cooked a number of family meals in the house. It comes with a huge back yard and comes outfitted with a playhouse and other toys that kept our 17 month old daughter entertained for hours on end. Jacques, the proprietor, lives next door but gave us all the privacy we needed. He also arranged for delivery of fresh baguettes daily (amazing!) and on several occasions provided us the fresh fruits and vegetables from his garden (also amazing). He also gave us great suggestions for local food markets and area attractions. In addition, Boyer was also a great location from which to explore burgundy. We ventured out to Beaune, wine tours, Dijon, as well as many other places. We fell in love with Burgundy and hope to return soon back to this lovely French farmhouse in Boyer soon, if not yearly. Thank you Jacques for such a great stay.
We stayed in Boyer for 2 weeks in early July - a great holiday in a centrally located gite in a very large property on the edge of a small village in Burgundy. The gite has been renovated to a high standard and offers all the facilities necessary for a comfortable stay. The property was exactly as described in the listing and was well maintained and very clean. The owners live on site and were very attentive, offering much valued advice about the local area as well as some delights from their kitchen and gardens. The weather was quite hot during our stay and in the absence of air conditioning, the availability of fans would have made things more comfortable. However, I would recommend this property without reservation to our family and friends and would certainly stay there again in the future should circumstances permit.
We are a retired couple and we stayed here for two weeks at the end of June. We were joined for most of the time by our son and his wife and new born grandson, and also by our son's mother-in-law. The cottage is large enough to accommodate the needs of such a diverse group and we had a very enjoyable and relaxing time. The weather was not great so we had to wear sweaters as the cottage is cool. The grounds are lovely and we really enjoyed being outside when the sun was out.
Jacques and Mitou are wonderful hosts. We had fresh flower arrangements in all rooms when we arrived and we were made to feel very welcome. Our French is limited but this did not matter as Jacques speaks English very well. Throughout our stay Jacques was available for anything we needed as he lives in the adjacent building but at no time did we feel that he was too close or interfering.
Jacques provided a bath and change sheet for the baby and we noticed many other things on site for a family with older children - he has really thought out what is needed for a relaxing holiday in a quiet village.
You would need a car here to be able to get to towns such as Tournus and Chalon-sur-Saone and to visit vineyards and other interesting sites in southern Burgundy. We liked that there is an excellent wine shop close by on the highway - excellent wines from this region, tastings, and an interesting exhibition about wine making in the region. We found some very nice restaurants but also prepared our own food in the well appointed kitchen.
We will happily return here and recommend it to family and friends
