Home description

Alcyon is a charming village house in the delightful and popular village of Quarré Les Tombes in the Morvan Natural Park, well situated for access to Burgundy's wine regions at Chablis and Beaune.

The house offers a taste of village life in rural France.

It is suitable for couples or families and is well equipped with all the things you need including dishwasher, washing machine, WiFi. Central heating throughout but please note there is an additional charge for heating.

There is a raised terrace outside the kitchen and a beautiful stone courtyard garden with raised beds, wall fountain and garden furniture. The garden is totally enclosed and is ideal for a dog.

Lots of things to do for every taste, from energetic (Walking, Cycling, etc); cultural (medieval towns like Vezeley, Semur-en-Auxois, Montreal, Noyers) or just enjoying the idyllic french village life.

Plenty of dining opportunities within walking distance of the house and loads of signed and graded routes for both biking and walking.

About the location
Quarré les Tombes is a beautiful, lively, village situated on the top of a hill. The pretty village square is dominated by a 16th century church. (Surrounding the church are 112 sarcophagi, the origins of which are still a mystery and which give the village it's name).

The superb boulangerie offers a great selection of breads, pastries, fantastic fruit tarts and cakes also a wide selection of locally made jams, chutneys and preserves.

As if that was not enough, next door is an award winning Chocolaterie. The display at Easter is stunning, last year it was a whole village in Chocolate heaven.

Sundays and Tuesdays there is a small market selling local produce, cheeses, eggs, fruit and veg, wine, clothes, plants etc ...

There us a grocery shop which can provide almost anything else you may want.........bread, milk, loo rolls etc and their wine section takes up a large part of the shop (as it should).

There is a pharmacy, hairdressers, doctors and a couple of Aladdin's Cave style shops, which are well worth a rummage. 2 garages (one of which sells fuel), a small library and tennis courts.

Eating and drinking in Quarré les Tombes
