A good fun time was had by all at Maison Sanières. 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 !

Overview of Maison du Doubs

What Oliver loves…

  • This family-friendly manor in Burgundy has toys, a games room, and a garden playset for the kids.
  • Bring your fishing rods - the River Doubs runs right past the property.
  • Ride the manor's bicycles into Saunières (1 km) for all your shopping.

What you should know…

  • The nearest airports are 100 km away.
  • Please be aware, dogs are not accepted.

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.

There are 8 sunloungers, garden furniture for outdoor diners and a giant parasol. The 4000m2 of gardens with a 100 year old walnut tree makes a great place for children's games.

Map, Location & Local Information

The house sits in a peaceful village of 80 inhabitants along the river Doubs. The nearest town of Verdun sur le Doubs is 4km away with all facilities (shops, supermarket, banks etc).

This is a region where you can visit some of the oldest and most prestigious vineyards in the world and taste wines that are regularly regarded as the best France has to offer (which is saying something). As one of the richest regions of France for hundreds of years, Burgundy also offers a wealth of history and culture as well as beautiful landscapes that offer the adventurous visitor plenty of stuff to do, even if it’s just a walk to admire the scenery.

We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it).

So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

Maison du Doubs Reviews


  • Wonderful holiday

    Posted by Rachel S. 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 !

    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 !

    Posted by Families Steffenson 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.
