Overview

Exclusive Recommended Pool

In the heart of rural Burgundy, where Charolais cattle graze in nearby fields, this charming 18th-century manor house has stunning views over the surrounding hills and woods of the Parc Naturel Régional du Morvan.

Originally built as a hunting lodge, it was modified in the early twentieth century to become a summer residence for the long-standing owners in Dijon. The most recent owners have restored this historical residence with great sensitivity, respecting the wonderful handicraft across the manoir, furnishing the home with period pieces and also featuring calming pieces of masters and contemporary art.  What they have created is a characterful and graceful place from which to discover this stunning part of Burgundy.

With seven first-floor bedrooms, up to 12 guests can enjoy Manoir des Chasseurs; there is ample space across the vast ground floor with a choice of two living areas, a dining room and fully-equipped kitchen with modern features. The grand salon offers a relaxing place to unwind by the open-fire whilst the gentleman’s salon is a characterful room perfect for long evenings chatting, playing cards and enjoying excellent local wine. There’s also a romantic library with a fireplace and upstairs a sweet little living room with a sofa looking over the beautiful views from the house.

Outside you are greeted with an inviting swimming pool alongside a laid-back al-fresco dining area, perfect for long lunches with loved ones. Younger members of the family will love the rustic old farmhouse where you will find table-tennis, a trampoline and some other outdoor games.

Here you are in the heart of the rural Parc Naturel Régional du Morvan, a paradise for hikers, cyclists and horse-riders with trails crossing woodlands, hills, streams and hidden villages as well water-based activities such as rafting, canoeing, sailing and swimming along the park’s rivers and lakes. Despite this remote location, it’s only half-an-hour from the fascinating Roman town of Autun where you can discover its historical treasures or pick up some fine local produce at one of the weekly markets.

The spectacular Burgundy wine region is within easy reach from beautiful Beaune to historic Dijon. Follow the wine road, Route des Grands Crus, and discover little villages such as Pommard and Meursault alongside idyllic vineyards where you can sample wines from the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune regions.

This region is perfect for those who enjoy fine wines, amazing regional food and spectacular scenery; Manoir des Chasseurs is a unique and characterful  home from which to experience this authentic part of rural Burgundy.

Manoir des Chasseurs is in the heart of rural Burgundy with a glorious position in the Parc Naturel Régional du Morvan. The manoir is surrounded by woodland, hills and farmland with views of surrounding farm houses and fields of grazing Charolais cattle.

There is a tiny village within 3km where you will find a restaurant open for lunch and dinner (booking is advisable and it’s usually closed Sunday evenings and Mondays). At the manoir you will also be given a list of local restaurants or auberges and their opening times in the area.

About ten minutes away is Saint-Léger-sous-Beuvray (7km) where there is a small grocery store selling bread (usually closed Mondays) or even better head to Étang-sur-Arroux (18km) where there are two bakeries and a supermarket.

Larger shops and supermarkets as well as a great choice of restaurants can be found in Autun (24km), a fascinating town founded by the Romans and full of historical sights, including a beautiful cathedral in the old town as well as a lovely central square which hosts a market on a Wednesday and Friday morning.

Here you are in the heart of the very rural Parc Naturel Régional du Morvan where you will find beautiful woodlands, streams and waterfalls, gentle rolling hills and hidden villages. Wonderful for hikers and cyclists or you may prefer to canoe or raft down a river or sail or kayak on one of the lakes. You can go horse riding through the spectacular scenery or take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage for a touch of luxury. There are also hot-air balloon rides leaving from Autun (24km) an amazing way to see some of the breath-taking vistas around you.

Head to Mont Beuvray (14km) in the wooded hills where you will not only finding outstanding natural beauty but also the brilliant Bibracte, which tells the history of ancient life in Gaul.  There are some amazing trails for hikers, horse-riders and mountain bike here, including guided tours.

This is of course a wonderful place from which to explore the world-famous Burgundy wine region.  In the heart of the wine-producing region is Beaune (73km), just over an hour away. This is the home of the magnificent Hospices de Beaune, one of France’s most stunning historical buildings and there’s a great market on Wednesday and Saturday mornings.  There are some wonderful restaurants in Beaune including around 30 Michelin starred establishments in the town and surrounding wine villages.
Follow the wine road, Route des Grands Crus, and discover little villages such as Pommard, Volnay, Meursault (with an amazing chateau) and Puligny Montrachet and idyllic vineyards across the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune region where you can sample wines; private wine tastings can be arranged on request.

Dijon (104km), just 90-minutes away at the top end of the wine route, is a historical town with a delightful old quarter and of course famous mustard stores whilst Cluny (95km) to the south is a stunning medieval village most famous for its abbey, a National Monument of France, once the largest in the western world. 

If you have even more time to travel further afield you can explore beautiful Vichy (130km) for its baths, Paray-le-Monial (74km) with its amazing basilica and Tournus (100km) with its stunning cathedral.

Reviews

  • Amazing time

    Posted by Jill L. & Family on 22/05/2019

    We have spent a wonderful time at the manoir!

  • 5*

    Posted by Cristina B. on 08/10/2018

    Einmal eingetaucht in die Atmosphere des alten Manoir des Chasseurs, fühlt sich die erholungsuchende Seele wie in eine andere Welt versetzt. Von fast allen Räumen des Hauses schweift der Blick weit über Wiesen und von Hecken umsäumte Weiden, auf denen weiße Charolais-Herden friedlich grasen. Die grünen Hügel und bewaldeten Höhen des Morvan lassen erahnen, wie in früheren Zeiten die Jagdgesellschaften hier Hof hielten. Die schlichte und doch elegante Ausstattung des Hauses zeugt vom ausgezeichneten Geschmack der Eigentümer dieses paradiesischen Ortes. Gleichzeitig haben wir auf Komfort nicht verzichten müssen. Besonders die gemütliche und gut ausgestattete Küche, von der ein direkter Weg zum Pool führt, hat es uns angetan. Die großzügigen schönen Bäder seien nur der Vollständigkeit halber erwähnt. Selten findet man einen solch friedlichen Ort, wo bereits bei der Ankunft die Zeit etwas langsamer als sonst zu verstreichen scheint....

  • Favourite holiday!

    Posted by Phillis W. on 16/07/2018

    Thank you for our favorite holidays! We loved staying at Manoir des Chasseurs with that amazing view, looking over the beautiful French landscape! The house is nicely furnished like a classic country side mansion but with beautiful modern bath and kitchen. We also very much liked the old tennis court and the new swimming pool from which one can overlook the valley and the neighbor's horse...all in all we`ll definitely come back and we can only recommend this place.

  • Great stay during both summer and winter

    Posted by Margit W. on 01/06/2018

    What a perfect quaint place to calm down and to have a unique family reunion experience! So far, we came twice. In the winter 2017, we enjoyed the serenity and the heavenly peace of the place that much, that we decided to come back in early summer 2018 with an even intergenerational part of the family!
    In the cold season we mostly enjoyed the lovely atmosphere of the house with it's thoughtful renovated sitting rooms which invite you have a rest in front of a old fire place, to read a book in one of those beautiful furnished lounges or to have extended meals with long intensive family discussions at the old oak table in the dining room. The large kitchen was a great communal space, perfectly equipped with excellent cooking facilities. Once or twice a day we went for walks in the lovely surroundings, enjoyed a trip to Autun or Dijon or became sportive with biking or playing tennis.
    In summer we mostly spent relaxing days outside with extended walks and young and old met around the beautiful swimming pool, a very pretty place to enjoy the views! The kids particularly enjoyed the trampoline in the barn and us parents, we were happy to see them so excited in this shadowy, hidden place.
    The bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable and as beautiful as the rest of the house with stunning views from the first floor.
    Leaving the place the children talked of fairytale holidays and we were all convinced that we took home some everlasting memories of this beautiful place.
    We would like to thank Wim and Birthe for putting so much heart in renovating the property into such a comfortable and personal family manor. We felt transported back in time and we will definitely come back!
