la Maison sur l'Armançon - Charming Riverfront Cottage in Exquisite Medieval Town - Stunning Views


Details of the Cottage

Immerse yourself in old-world charm and rich culture when you stay at our holiday rental cottage in the spectacular town of Semur-en-Auxois, located in the world-famous Cote d'Or region of Burgundy, France. The house is a two-bedroom, three-bathroom cottage located on the banks of a winding river, with breathtaking views of the remnants of the old town wall and once-powerful castle of Semur.

Being only a few minutes' walk from the center of town, yet located between a cliff face and the river, the house is perfectly located and offers a blend of access to amenities and private retreat. You can spend your holiday meandering through the charming streets of Semur and relaxing in the cozy salon, which has magnificent views -- especially when the ramparts are lit up at night -- or you can use the house as a home base for your exploration of all the local Cote d'Or region has to offer.

Please feel free to inquire if you would like to see many more photos of the house, including floor plans. Inquiring does not obligate you to book with us, so don't hesitate to ask us any questions you might have!
