Set on the south facing slope of a beautiful and tranquil valley in the gentle rolling hills of Southern Burgundy, our traditional 18th century farmhouse, barn and extensive grounds offer a comfortable and informal place for you to stay, learn, plan and relax.
The stone built house, Les Cerisiers, provides accommodation for up to twelve people in five comfortable bedrooms (three ensuite and two share a shower room). All bedrooms have great views of the surrounding countryside and are fully central heated. The ground floor is divided into a large, fully equipped farmhouse kitchen where meals can be taken around a long table which comfortably seats twelve and a spacious lounge area, both with 'plafonds à la française' traditional French beamed ceilings. Many original features have been preserved throughout the house and barn including exposed beam work, working bread oven and huge Burgundian fireplace.
The light and spacious Barn offers you eighty square metres of floor space to suit your needs: studio, workshop, seminar rooms or conference facilities.
Refreshments are available throughout the day and meal times are flexible to fit in with your requirements.
The vast orchard, with its many cherry, apple, pear, walnut, plum, damson and quince trees, makes a wonderful setting for dining al fresco or simply sitting and taking in the clear air and splendid views.
The 10 metre flood- lit swimming pool offers the opportunity to take some exercise or simply unwind. There is a large brick built BBQ for outdoor cooking close by the pool. In August, the tranquil setting is all the more charming for the glow worms in the hedge rows and the shooting stars overhead.
You may also like to try your hand at archery. Our resident instructor, Mark, is happy to offer tuition to novice archers at our on site range.
In addition to providing accommodation for our specialised recreational events, Les Cerisiers is also available as a beautiful holiday home for you to hire.
Les Cerisiers is easily accessible by train, road and air.
