L'endroit est très calme et aménagé avec beaucoup de goût. Le village est perché au milieu de la campagne, idéal pour les ballades à pied ou à vélo. Le petit loft est tout équipé pour se faire à manger. Nous sommes restés trop peu de temps, et sous la pluie pour visiter la région mais la Bourgogne est toujours sympathique à (re)découvrir. Nous recommandons ce logement pour un couple qui a envie de se retrouver tranquille quelques jours.
We had a great time in this romantic house. We have only one regret : our travel was to short! We hope we will come back one of these days.
The place is clean, quiet, and if you need something, people around are really helpful. We recommend this place!!!
We stayed at Anna's place over Christmas and New Years and had an amazing time. The place is fantastic, exactly how it looks in the pictures set in beautiful country side. Even in the middle of winter the place was very snug and warm. The place has a brilliant little terrance in the front with an amazing view. It was a great place to relax and chill out, exactly what we wanted to do. There are great walks in the surrounding countryside along the farm tracks through the fields. Anna was really friendly and great help. She provided excellent advise for where to go and what to see in the local area.
The loft was nice and charming, we felt like at home.
Thank you for you hospitality.
I wish I could come another time.
We had a wonderful stay in Anna's romantic retreat. It's just the right size for 2 and has a wonderful view of the rolling hills. She was very helpful with suggestions for places to eat and visit. We'd definitely go back.
Steph and myself stayed at Anna's retreat for 9 nights and that is exactly what it was.... retreat!!! It was so relaxing in the beautiful town of Mont-Saint-Jean. Everything you need is only a few minutes down the road by car yet this places feels like it is miles away. Anna is so friendly and easy to talk to. Her knowledge of the area was a great help and being able to speak English and French was very helpful. Anna was always around if you needed her but never intruded. Anna has put a lot of time and effort into the design, with a warming cafe vibe inside and peaceful, natural setting outside. We will definitely be back in the future, it is a great place to just stop and enjoy life amongst the rolling hills of the burgundy region.
Nous avons énormément appréciés les séjours chez Anna.
Nous avons trouvé son lieu avec l'allure d'autrefois authentiquement de Bourgogne et magnifiquement restauré et soigneusement décoré. Tous étaient pensés en avance et Anna est une hôtesse idéale, gentille et discrète, on voit sa joie de vivre en tout ! Et je vous jure que nous n'étions pas trop gâtées par la météo, mais nous étions tout juste contents d'être là et aucune hésitation d'y retourner. Merci mille fois Anna.
We had a privilege to stay at Anna's place for a few days. Her place is simply idyllic. She restored a traditional Bourgogne house in a very eco-friendly and marvelous way, and she decorated it with a discreet taste which shows her understated elegance as herself. While we are staying, unfortunately we did not have the greatest weather, however we were more than happy to enjoy our short retreat in this quiet countryside while watching magnificent natural panorama, enjoying what Bourgogne's terroir offered to us.
Thank you again Anna and we shall return !

Swapped the hustle and bustle of London for
country French life.
Lover of gardens, good wine, family and food.
I hold firm to the idea of getting out of the box.
Hope to meet you in Burgundy soon,
