Corbigny, Nievre, Bourgogne-Franche-Comte
The tallest house in Port Brulé, Maison Watershed offers unrivalled views over the Nivernais canal and towpath from both the ground and first floors. Life on the canal in summer with hire boats, private craft, the electric restaurant barge 'L'air du temps' which cruises the tunnels leading to the lakes at Baye, plus a constant traffic of cyclists and walkers using the renowned canal cycling route are sufficient entertainment to pass a fulfilling week without leaving the premises.

Built in the 1790's at the same time as the canal, the stone walls keep the house cool in summer and there are woodburners and central heating to keep you warm in winter.
If you like to eat outside, there is a patio at the rear which is relatively private compared to the courtyard and conservatory at the front where it is difficult to divorce y...

we found the house friendly and comfortable and very quickly became our home. The kitchen was well equipped with an outside bar-b que and the bedrooms were light and airy with very comfortable beds. Watching the boats on the canal became our evenings entertainment whilst relaxing with a glass or several of inexpensive wine. We found the car was essential...

We spent a thoroughly enjoyable week on the Canal du Nivernais at Port Brule in this property. We have spent holidays in most parts of France over the years and have become quite fond of Burgundy. This is a special location - very little motor traffic on the restricted canalside road but plenty of interest from passing boats, walkers and...

Additional amenities & feature info
There is a conservatory at the front of the house with views along the towpath and canal which is particularly useful in spring & Autumn as it warms up quickly when the sun is out and is a lovely spot to sit or eat.
The games room with table tennis table is also on the ground floor.

Stairs lead up to the main room which is open plan with a kitchen area with door to the patio at the rear, separated by a central breakfast bar from the dining / lounging areas with views over the canal.

The sleeping accommodation is to the left at the top of the stairs, typically french with the first double bedroom housing a corner shower room and leading to the second bedroom which has a double and a single bed. This bedroom layout is suitable for families but needs to be taken into consideration for a...
