The house

Your holiday home has a cosy living room with dining area, fireplace and a cosy sitting area. There is a television with satellite connection in the sitting area. The living room has French doors on both sides, one set gives acces to the beautiful terrace.

On the terrace is a barbecue that you can use. Many guests choose to eat their supper on the terrace with the backdrop of the setting sun, which slowly disappears behind the forest. And you can see heated pool with spacious sun beds from the terrace. The children can take a plunge in the swimming pool in the evening and you can keep an eye on them while enjoying a drink and a snack. On the other side of the house, the doors open out onto the veranda, where you have a view of the huge garden (3000 m2).

Also, your accommodation has a kitchen with oven, microwave, gas hob, dishwasher and fridge / freezer.
Upon arrival the manager will provide you with kitchen linen: a kitchen towel, tea towel and dishcloth. If you need more, we ask you to bring your own.
In the basement are the washer and dryer which you can use.
The house has a TV, a DVD player with plenty of DVDs, games, swing and accessories, a petanque court, volleyball, football and table tennis.
And of course, do not forget the heated pool.
There are three bedrooms, two of them have a double bed and the other has two single beds.
We ask you not to smoke in the house, but only on the porch and the covered terrace.

The holiday home is just a 1.5 hour drive from Paris and a stone's throw from the historic towns of Saint-Sauveur and Saint-Fargeau. The cities of Auxerre and Vezelay are only a half an hour's drive from your home. Here you can enjoy the pleasant shopping streets, local markets, the many terraces and of course the French brasseries, where you can enjoy a bite to eat and a drink.

The city of Auxerre has a lively city centre with a rich history, still present in the many old churches and buildings.

If you prefer beautiful nature and some peace and quiet then we advise you to visit nature park Morvan.

The Yonne region, named after the river Yonne, is excellent for walking, cycling, mountain biking, fishing, boating and horse riding.

Certainly worth a visit are the vineyards of Sancerre, Chablis or Irancy. And in the evenings you can enjoy the wine you have just bought on the terrace of your holiday home. These wines of course go really well with a Burgundy meal. The ingredients for typical Burgundy meals and the many varieties of French cheese can be bought on the local markets. Enjoying all this in a wonderful setting and lovely climate will certainly feel like you are living the good life!

Further remarks

This beautiful house is located in the heart of Burgundy. If you are looking for peace and quiet in your holiday, this is the perfect spot! You can use the heated private pool with sun beds. The garden is entirely enclosed by a beautiful hedge, it ensures privacy and safety for playing children and pets. You can enjoy the sun and the garden without having to worry about keeping an eye on your children.

It is now also possible to book a similar property across the street in combination with holiday home Thury, if you want to spend your holiday with a larger group or two families you can enjoy going on holiday together but still have privacy.

Both houses have a terrain of approximately 3000 m2 and are completely fenced. And both houses have pools which you can use.. Pets are not allowed in the 'combination' house and change over day is only on Saturday here. Please keep this in mind! .
Mail or call us if you are interested and would like more information or pictures from the other house.

Dag Rob, dag Rene,

Ik kan het niet nalaten jullie dit mailtje te sturen. Enkele dagen geleden zijn we teruggekeerd na twee weken in jullie vakantiehuis in Thury te hebben doorgebracht. Het moet gezegd zijn; het is werkelijk een schitterende plaats om je vakantie door te brengen. Het huis (netjes verzorgd, alle mogelijke voorzieningen aanwezig), de tuin, de omgeving, het zwembad, ... al deze dingen waren dik in orde. Dit heeft er voor gezorgd, samen met het aangename weer natuurlijk, dat onze vakantie meer dan geslaagd is. Wij hebben er echt van genoten. Ook de kinderen waren zeer enthousiast (gezelschapsspellen aanwezig, het zwembad, het tafelvoetbalspel). We hebben onze batterijen er echt kunnen opladen zodat we weer vol energie terug van start kunnen gaan en nog lang kunnen nagenieten van die heerlijke 14 dagen. Top !

Danny Smets
