La Maison du Curé - The old priest's house near Taizé in beautiful south Burgundy


Details of the Cottage

La Maison du Curé is a stone built cottage from 1823 and was the home of the priests of Cormatin. It has been skilfully renovated whilst retaining many of the original features. It is in a quiet street not far from the entrance to the Chateau, and is very convenient for the boulangerie, tabac and restaurant.

The cottage has three bedrooms, all with washbasins. There is a bathroom with bath and shower upstairs and a shower room off the entrance hall. The kitchen is off the dining room and is fully equipped with microwave, fridge freezer and washing machine. Steps lead down to the garden. In the lounge is a 32' TV with English satellite channels, and a DVD player. There is central heating in all the rooms, and the lounge and dining rooms have electric log effect fires.

Outside is a small enclosed garden with a terrace and BBQ. It is always possible to find a shady spot for the table as the garden is sheltered by a tall hedge and at one end of the lawn is a copse of trees.
