Newly renovated in 2015, this delightful and charming 2-bedroom stone cottage is set in a small hamlet in the heart of the Burgundian countryside and offers a perfect base for discovering the Cote d'Or and Burgundy.

A sister property, The Little Barn is approximately 1km away in Frolois and the two may be booked together for larger groups.

The Little House offers accommodation on two levels with a light, bright living area, comfortable bedrooms and plenty of homely touches.

Children will love to play hide and seek in the enchanted garden with meandering pathways and steps and adults will enjoy relaxing on the sunny terrace with a stone table and benches, or the shady alfresco dining area. A quiet and private location to enjoy the peaceful setting and the wonderful views across the green valley.

The friendly owners live nearby and are nearly always available to assist in providing information on all the local attractions and arrange private wine tastings nearby. They can also arrange extra services such as a shopping service to make your arrival pain free, fresh bread and pastry delivery as well as home-cooked meals and bespoke menus (please enquire regarding details and prices for additional services).

The Little House is a perfect base for exploring the region: this beautiful part of Burgundy has several historical sites, stunning landscapes, lively local markets and of course, wine tasting opportunities all just a short drive away.
