The French windows lead to a wooden terrace overlooking the heated swimming pool (shared with owner and visitors to the owner’s guest house between 10am and 6pm) and garden.

Reviews from the website

Very nice cottage in the middle of one of the most pretty villages in France. The owners make you feel at home. The cottage has been decorated with care providing today's comfort in a centuries old setting, very nicely done.
The pictures do not do this property justice! The owners Christine & Grahame were great hosts. With plenty of tips on where to viit. The kitchen was fully equipped and as we prefer to buy local food and cook in the property this was splendid. The property was in a mediveal village with a beatiful church. If you visit anywhere take the trip to Beaune. The town is full of charm. As we visited in April we never used the pool as the weather although it reached 18 degrees was not quite hot enough. All in all we had a terrific time, great house, great area. Thanks!
Maison Grande Creme is an excellent property - the pictures on the web site are an accurate reflection of the property. There was nothing we could fault. The owners were friendly and welcoming. You will enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace soaking up the view. Montreal village is picture perfect, too!
