Comfort, service, hospitality
Our guest house is located in a late 18th century manor. You can book one of 9 rooms, or even a separate house for up to 6 guests. It is also possible to rent the entire premise for an event. Here you can spend a wonderful time for vacationing with the family, enjoy your honeymoon or a business conference.
Feel free to go cycling along the Burgundy canal. There is also the option of
rowing on our private canal or fishing.
The surrounding territory is big enough to host many, different kinds of events !
What to do?
If you want to be quiet and relaxed then a stroll through the woods to and along the canal is what you need. If you want to spend time more actively, then bikes, rowboats, cultural and gastronomic places are at your service.
Boating. You have row boats at your disposal on the property's private access to the Burgundy Canal. Trips on barges on the Canal can be organised as well, if planned in advance.
