This manor in Burgundy offers a riverside country escape filled with elegance and polish. From the moment you park in the formal drive, you’re in a world apart. Children will be in heaven here - playing freely in the large gardens on the swing set, or beneath the 100 year old walnut tree. Inside there are games, table tennis and football to keep them entertained on rainy days, and there’s even a nursery for the baby.

Meanwhile, the adults will have plenty of privacy as every bedroom has an en suite bathroom. The decor is richly textured, and calming neutral in colour. Relaxation is simple, with a fitness room, sauna and steam room at hand. You may spend your days beside the swimming pool on the well-appointed terrace beside it, or down by the Doubs River, fishing for dinner.

This holiday manor is equipped with bikes and iIt’s a short ride into the town of Saunières, where you’ll find all the shops you’ll need. All that’s needed for a stellar holiday is an open bottle of Burgundy wine - and you are absolutely in luck. Take a quick 30 minute drive to Beaune for a cluster of beautiful vineyards, then return!

Note: maximum capacity is 12 adults + 1 child + 2 babies.

  • Wonderful holiday

    on 30/11/2016

    We had a fantastic week at the Villa. It had everything we needed and was clean, beautiful and luxurious. We hired the chef one night and it was the best meal we have ever eaten - what a fantastic experience. It was everything we wanted from our holiday. Christophe was an excellent host - thank you.

  • At Maison Du Doubs !

    on 18/10/2009

    Excellent stay at Maison Du Doubs ! One of the best holidays we can remember . Peaceful, stylish and well furnished throughout. The pool was enjoyed by all, particularly our daughter and her friend from Paris. We will return.

  • We should have stayed longer !

    on 15/10/2009

    A good fun time was had by all at Maison Du Doubs. The boys loved the swimming pool and all the outside activities and games. A lovely tranquil spot which was just what we needed. We should have stayed longer !

  • We hope to come back soon

    on 15/10/2009

    Our group of 10 had a fabulous week here at Maison du Doubs. The house was fantastic, comfortable, attractive and in a very peaceful setting. From here we were able to explore the vineyards of Cote d'Or, of Chateau-Chalon and Dijon. And relaxing at the end of each day around the pool and the petanque court was a great way to wind up each day. Thank you Christophe for giving us everything we needed to have a superb week, and we hope to come back soon.
