Fleur de Lys

Rental Home -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 7
Vermenton, Yonne, Bourgogne-Franche-Comte
This is a charming 150 year old 3-bedroomed gite in a quiet street in the centre of the ville. It has a lovely courtyard garden with a sun terrace, where you can look over the rolling hillside. There is wifi, satellite TV, and free landline calls worldwide. There is a good sized salon with comfy seating for 7 people. There is one bedroom on the first floor, next to the bathroom and there are two bedrooms on the second floor, but the stairs could be a bit tricky for small children and elderly people. There is a toilet and separate shower room downstairs.

Vermenton has everything you need - butchers and bakers, bars and restaurants. The supermarket is especially good - it sells local wines and has an extensive butchers section using locally-reared animals - and it's within easy walking distance.

Local activities include horse riding,...

We enjoyed our two week stay at Fleur de Lys enormously. We stayed for the second year running and found the property to be as comfortable as we had remembered it. The four teenagers enjoyed having the privacy of their rooms at the top of...More

We have visited burgundy before but as there is so much to see and do in the local area we ran out time before doing it all. We stayed at Fleur de Lys the first time and had such a great holiday that I didn't...More

I'm so pleased that you all enjoyed your holiday and had plenty to do. Fleur de Lys is indeed quirky, but people love this about it, especially the sun terrace. You will all be most welcome when you come back.

After reading such excellent reviews about this property, we were really looking forward to enjoying our stay. We were met at the house by John, the owner's representative. He spent all of 5mins handing over the keys, telling us that the oven was "terrible" and...More

I'm sorry that some aspects of your stay did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to be there on that occasion, but John is an old hand at meeting and greeting and even if he's suffering he always ensures all the necessary information...More

About the neighborhood
Vermenton is a small but lively ville that is located in the heart of Burgundy's famous winelands, in the Yonne department. Its name means 'country of the beautiful hills', and it doesn't take a visitor to the town long to discover why this name was given. The countryside is peaceful and indeed, very beautiful, and provides a perfect backdrop to this pretty little town.
