Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome

Set in a tiny village of pretty stone houses, Petite Pierre is full of character and a wonderful place to spend a relaxing holiday in this rural and beautiful part of Burgundy.

Step inside to appreciate the home’s old-world ambience with ample living space, making it ideal for large families or a gathering of friends. You’ll be made to feel welcome in this homely abode, full of lovely traditional features such as wood beamed ceilings, old fire-places and original flooring plus interesting parts such as the stone spiral staircase leading to some of the rooms; watch out for those low ceilings! Five of the six bedrooms dotted around the house have en-suite bathrooms and offer high levels of comfort alongside authentic charm.

Dining al-fresco for a leisurely lunch or under the starry sky will be one of your memorable experiences here as you admire the lush gardens and remarkable views around you. The inviting swimming pool is perfect for a dip as you relax in the glorious gardens under the shade of the tree or on the roomy lawns. More active guests can play table-tennis whilst those looking to chill-out can find a peaceful spot with a book and a glass of good local wine.

The tiny village is full of charm with inscriptions on the facades of many of the historical houses. Head down to the bottom of valley to visit the old laundry which was still used up until mid 20th century and is now protected as part of the village’s important heritage. Within 5km you can drive to Treigny where you will a restaurant and little supermarket as well as an impressive church or head north to discover Saint-Fargeau with its magnificent castle and Toucy with its picturesque weekly market on a Saturday morning.

Exploring further afield will take you to charming villages and market towns such as Sancerre with its fine wines, Briare on the banks of the Loire or a little further to the famous hilltop town of Vézelay. The spectacular cities of Auxerre, Nevers and Orléans can be visited within a day or you may prefer to spend your time exploring magical castles, discovering idyllic vineyards or taking a boat trip or hiring canoes down the Loire or Yonne rivers.

With hikes, mountain biking and horse-riding nearby, as well as other family activities such as tree-top adventures, lakes and farms, there is a great deal to explore in this tranquil part of Burgundy.

Petite Pierre is set in a hilly and rural area of the Yonne department in western Burgundy, 5km from the village of Treigny. You are also near the borders of the Cher, Nievre and Loiret departments, each one with charming villages and market towns, fascinating art and history and fine wines to sample. This part of Burgundy offers undulating landscapes of woodlands, vineyards and small lakes as well as the Loire and Yonne rivers only a short drive away.

The tiny village is full of charm with inscriptions on the facades of many of the historical houses. Head down to the bottom of valley to visit the old laundry which was still used up until mid 20th century and is now protected as part of the village’s important heritage. Within 5km you can drive to Treigny where you will a restaurant and little supermarket as well as an impressive church.

North of the house is the town of Saint-Fargeau (20km) with its remarkable castle open from Spring to Autumn, sometimes featuring special events such as amazing re-enactments. There’s also a lovely farm nearby, Ferme du Château (20km), open at the weekends, where visitors can get hands on with the animals, a brilliant place for families. Kids will also love the Parc Naturel de Boutissaint (12km) where you can see many animals in their natural surroundings. Another local attraction is Guédelon (12km) where you can watch a 13th century castle being built using only authentic tools and locally sourced materials, taking many years, as well as other interesting events taking place on site. Finally, in this area, don’t miss the Saturday morning market in Toucy (27km) which has been voted one of the most picturesque in Burgundy.

There’s a great range of activities in the local area with beautiful hikes, canoeing on nearby lakes or rivers, horse-riding and tennis locally and some brilliant opportunities for cycling and mountain biking. Lac du Bourdon (15km) offers fishing, canoeing and wonderful walks along its shore or nearby woodlands. Tree-top adventurers should head to Nature Adventure (10km) with all sorts of activities on offer including paintballing.

Heading across to the Loiret department, explore close to home in the stunning gardens of Château de la Bussiere (50km) or the attractive town of Gien (60km) on the Loire River with its weekly market. Briare (45km), also a market town, is where the Loire River crosses with the Canal de Briare with lovely riverside walks, boat and canal trips and wonderful flower filled streets in the late spring and summer.  You can also take a day trip to the home of Joan of Arc, Orléans (124km), with its stunning medieval centre and cathedral.

Wine-lovers will appreciate being an hour away from Sancerre (45km), a picturesque village with more than 300 vineyards or wine caves in the surrounding area where you can often sample and buy the white wines of this region. If wine isn’t your thing, the local goat’s cheese is also held in high esteem!

Back in Yonne, the famous and charming hilltop town of Vézelay (55km), on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela, has been loved by Christians, writers, artists, historians and lovers of Romanesque architecture. Visiting the 12th century Basilica is a must and afterwards stroll through the beautifully preserved streets full of colourful flowers in the summer months. Walk the circular route around Vézelay with access to some of the highest points and stunning views of the surrounding Burgundy countryside.

The capital of the Yonne department is Auxerre (47km), on the Yonne River, is a protected Historic Town in France with an impressive town centre with its towering cathedral and churches, attractive squares and cafes, medieval narrow streets full of ancient houses and its 15th Century clock tower. Combine with a visit to Chablis (66km), a pretty village with some of the region’s most famous wines.
