Chassigneux is a former farm, over 300 years old set on top of a hill amidst totally peaceful pastureland with some breathtaking views over the Morvan Park. The perfect setting to just sit back, relax and enjoy everything Burgundy has to offer. The Gite is just as suitable for groups of upto 6 people as it is for a couple looking for a romantic getaway.
The Gite is beautifully renovated barn that sits apart from the main farmhouse into the side of the hill and can sleep up to six people. It is available to rent for holidays all year round. On a weekly or nightly basis. The friendly, Scottish owners who live on site in the main farmhouse can offer advice on places to visit, restaurants, events etc. We will also provide a private taxi service within a 10km radius of Chassigneux. A welcome hamper containing essential items for when you first arrive awaits you and you can also try the fresh, organic eggs.
Do not think that Burgundy is reserved solely for wine connoisseurs and lovers of art and architecture. Visitors have a choice of activities as varied as the region's landscapes. With so much to see and do in this year-round destination, one stay is never enough! The so called 'Land of Art and Good Living', Burgundy offers you prestigious vineyards and wines, historical cities, famous sites (many World Heritage), golf and an interesting boating and walking network, all with in a well preserved natural setting.
For your use and enjoyment we have supplied: Reading Material, Games, Maps, Guidebooks, Walking route maps and Brochures about the local area.
The Magny-cours race track is also only 60kms away for the petrol heads among you, which holds events such as F1 Grand Prix, World Super Bike and the 24hr Bol d’or endurance race.
Each room inside the Gite is generously and comfortably furnished, spacious and traditionally decorated with large exposed beams. The kitchen / Living area is a large open plan area. It is fully equipped with a built in modern gas oven & hob, kettle, washine machine, coffee making machine, microwave, fridge freezer and a dining room table with chairs. The lounge area is comfortably furnished with traditional furniture, satellite TV, DVD, and has a lovely wood burning stove. There is also an addition sofa bed in the dining area which will sleep an extra two people.
Two double bedrooms with wooden floors, exposed beams and storage / hanging space. One of the bedrooms has a double bed with the 2nd set up as a twin but can be changed to a double on request. The bathroom has an extra large shower with toilet and modern fittings, wooden floor, exposed beams and large storage space.
There is also access to a private outside seating area from the 2nd bedroom.
This property is in a beautiful location with fantastic views across the countryside, which could be viewed from the windows and the small garden area which we found very relaxing. The owners were very friendly and extremely helpful. We all enjoyed the rural environment with the chickens and ducks wandering around and we all enjoyed the fresh eggs.
We really enjoyed our stay. The gite was absolutely stunning, spacious, warm and clean. The hosts were very friendly and knowledgable about the local towns and attractions. The long walks through the fields and evenings relaxing by the fire were exactly what we were looking for in our holiday. We would definitely recommend this gite to our friends.

5/5 Peaceful retreat Suzanne and Richard England. Date Submitted: December 02, 2008 Date of Stay: October 2008 This is a beautifully appointed, scrupulously clean, well equipped, warm and comfortable cottage. There is a lovely and very private garden. We enjoyed cosy evenings in front of the wood burning stove and feasted on eggs provided by the free range hens that range around the property during the day. The owners of this property are very hospitable and helpful. They are close enough to provide support/information when needed, but there is still good privacy.

Melanie, David & Annabell 16/10/07 "A wonderful weeks stay where the weather was unbelievably sunny and the nights peaceful and the sky dripping with stars. A super little find in the valleys of Burgundy – somewhere that can be enjoyed on cold days and hot days alike. Comfy beds, friendly and welcoming hosts and fantastic wine – what else do you need to recuperate?! Very well equipped for our 11 month old, Annabell."
