Holiday home in France
Hoeve de Bron, Farmstead the Source, offers guests a delightful Gîte (holiday cottage) between 31st May and 28th September each year. The gîte is self-contained, and adjoins the main house, where your hostess Hannamaria lives.
Depending on the amount of people you are, you could stay in the Writer’s House, the Baker’s House Le Verne or the Annex, three characteristic guesthouses that surround the central garden. There is room for 1 to 6 persons. In case you would like to come with a bigger group, different rules apply.
There are two large gardens at your disposal, with various lovely nooks to relax and enjoy the wonderful green and peaceful landscape dotted with beautiful flowers and fruit trees. Guests are allowed to barbecue in the garden.
An unusual and enchanting gathering place is our very own Theatre, a pleasant and impressive space with huge wooden doors that are open to the sun all day long. The stage invites anyone and everyone to improvise whatever performance they have to share, but guests can also simply soak up its ambience to talk, read, or just enjoy the views.
All guests may cook in the fully equipped Summer Kitchen. The kitchen boasts a couch and dining table and there is free WiFi connection. On the upper level is a fully equipped bathroom with shower, toilet and washbasin. There is also a second separate toilet and washbasin available
In consultation dogs are allowed.

The farm lies in a fertile region and belongs to the department which limits are determined by two big rivers, the Saône and the Loire. This part of the campagne, the French countryside, is of an extraordinary beauty. The velvety green rolling hills, the wide sky, the peaceful grazing white cows and the low cut hedges which separate the fields from each other and and which decorate the landschape like a winding ribbon, build up, together with the stone houses of the many villages, an harmonious unity. A walk through them, is always a special experience, the stones tell their story…

Restaurants, food & wine
All over Burgundy we encounter the rich gastronomic tradition. When we say Burgundian we refer to exuberant and abundant meals for gourmets where the wine flows richly as well. In this region, we find both components for the Burgundian table: the wine and the meat, but also, the extensive range of delicious cheeses. The wine fields are never far from the green hills where the white Charolais cows graze.
Countless are the footpaths, walking roads with every twist and turning giving a surprising new vista on the hills and valleys. At a short distance from Hoeve De Bron are two big lakes with beaches, swimming possibilities and places to picnic: Lac de Rousset and Lac Saint Point.
There are also lots of cycling tour possibilities; well-known is the “Voie Verte” a bycicle lane which has substituted the old railway line.
