Burgundy Idyl Dollhouse Cottage

House - Entire home/apt · Rue De La Bacelle, Montigny La Resle, Burgandy 89230, France

The Space

Lovely cottage, sleeps 4, in a charming village in the foothills of chardonnay vineyards. An hour and a half south of Paris. Great base to visit Burgundy, Champagne, the eastern Loire. Area has nature, architecture, great food and wine and a slow pace. Virtually never overrun with tourists. We love guests and enjoy helping them discover all there is to do in Burgundy. We offer meals in addition to breakfast. (just let us know ahead of time) The cottage is great for a family of 4 or 2 couples who like each other as it is an open space - there is a 15euro charge in the cottage for additional persons (so a family of 4 is 130euros a night). There is a double bed in the loft and a queensize sofabed in the living room. Linens are furnished. Breakfast and meals served in the garden among roses and birdsong. There is a fully equipped kitchen as well as space heaters for the winter guests. You are 15 minutes away from Auxerre, with lots to see and do and a superb restaurant (Jardin Gourmand). You are also 15 minutes away from Chablis and wine tasting. Rates for the cottage are 100euros for 2 people, 115euros for 3 and 130euros for 4 people. There is a 20% discount for stays of 4 or more nights and a greater discount for weekly stays. There's a great restaurant a 5 minute walk from the cottage. Breakfast is included for bed and breakfast guest, but not for people staying more than 2 nights as there is a kitchen for guests to prepare meals, and a bottle of chardonnay comes with the cottage. Meals are 25euros a person with a bottle of wine. For housekeeping we ask that you leave 50euros before departure so we can clean for the next guests. For those staying for a while, you are welcome to use the washing machine for your clothes. We happily make picnics for you to take on your explorations. Hope to see you soon!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Linda is a very charming and helpful person. The house is as it looks like: very idyl, cute and small. Linda lives in her house, next to this one, on the same premises. The village is really small, with not much stores, but the surroundings are beautiful, the town of Auxerre is really nice. We had a great and relaxing stay!

  • Charming converted farm house with loads of character. Had a very relaxing stay here at the start of our trip around France, perfect spot to recover from jet lag in a peaceful setting. Linda was lovely and very helpful as we orientated ourselves. Would stay again given the opportunity.

  • We chose Burgundy Idyl for our holiday and winetasting in Bourgogne and we could not have chosen something better. The owner, Linda, is a delicious person, she makes the impossible to let you feel like at home. The house is a real dolls-house, so cute, very clean, gourgeously designed and incredibly equipped. Linda gives you every day special advice about restaurant, wines, place to visit: she is a real gourmand!We spent a wonderful time also thanks to Linda and her care.The small town is perfect to stay in peace and silence, go around Burgundy and the nearest city, Auxerre, is really nice and well furnished of all services.Thanks again Linda. Elena, Giandomenico and Zoe.

  • La casa, preciosa y bien equipada. El trato, no estuvo a la altura. No había gas para cocinar y parecía que tuviéramos nosotros la culpa de ese despiste de la propietaria. En la casa sólo hay un recipiente para residuos, pero la propietaria nos regañó por no reciclar. No te sirven el desayuno: te dan cosas para que te lo prepares tú (entre las que no se encontraba ni leche ni mantequilla). No sabemos si es el trato que se le dispensa a todo el mundo o sólo a los españoles. Nos decepcionó.

  • Very caring landlady, beautifull housing two floors. Bed at second floor needs new mattresses and is too small for two adults. Two adults should use the sofa (sleep sofa) at the first floor. For dinner or lunch go to Auxerre. There are many different possibilities, especially if you travel with kids.

    July 2013
  • The cottage was attractive and the host helpful with local information. The weather was cold and the heat inadequate on the first floor. The bed was too small to be comfortable for two people, one person was next to a stone wall there was no wifi, although represented to the contrary, no door on the bathroom, and due to the low ceiling, no ability to stand in the bathtub. It was also difficult to stand near the bed because of the low ceiling. The place was ten kilometers outside of the main city.

  • Linda was a charming hostess. The cottage was a delight. We had a wonderful and relaxing visit to Burgundy and are looking forward to our return

  • Dollhouse Cottage is a perfect little retreat in a lovely corner of France. The cottage is equipped with everything you might need during your stay and has a wood burning stove to snuggle up by on a cold snowy night. Linda is the perfect hostess, really friendly and helpful with good knowledge of restaurants and local info. We loved the cottage and would recommend it happily.

  • What a fantastic place. Her photos do not due it justice. The little dollhouse in the small village was everything we had built up in our minds.

    We spent 2 days there and the late afternoons and evenings were enjoyed in her lovely garden with a bottle(s) of local wine. We were able to cycle to nearby vineyards for tasting and the weather really added to the charm.

    Linda is very interesting and very helpful when it comes to hints and advice about how to spend time in the region.

    We loved it so much we are already planning a long weekend there next year.

  • We (dad and three children) stayed at Linda's beautiful and charming cottage en route from the south of France to Calais. The cottage has all the comforts, is beautifully painted and and the big bath was a hit with the children. We had a great meal at the nearby restaurant, tasting the excellent local wine that Linda had recommended. Linda was a great host, providing us with a lovely breakfast and advice on our onward route. We would liked to have stayed longer.
