Canal-side gite - Santenay, Near Beaune, Burgundy

Rental Home -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Santenay, Cote d'Or, Bourgogne-Franche-Comte
This delightful canal-side house, with its unique canal-side setting, nestling in its own park like gardens of an acre, is 2 kms from the village of Santenay (shorter if you take the house dinghy) and 11 kms from Beaune.

It has all basic amenities, with two fine restaurants, an excellent boulangerie, butcher and loads of wine houses. It is a small spa town, famous for its Premier Cru wines and its 14th-century chateau. Great location for rock climbing, cycling/walking days out (bikes can be easily hired), meandering through the famous wine routes or along the canal. From the comfort of your garden, you can fish, picnic, walk or explore the canal with your own house boat or if you prefer, sit back and relax in one of the shady garden areas (with your glass of Santenay) and watch the boats, joggers, cyclists and walkers, hard at work....

We had a fantastic holiday with 4 adults and a 17 month old. It's a beautiful rustic property not far from the village of Santenay. We used the house boat to row down the canal and then walk into the village. Great BBQ and area...More

About the neighborhood
Santenay is a small spa town (850 inhabitants) which, by quirk of french law, has a casino. It is famous for its Premier Cru wines and its 14th-century chateau. It has two fine restaurants and basic amenities, including two bakers, a butcher, and a handy supermarket. There is an open-air swimming pool, open July and August and horse-riding. Bikes can be hired from the tourist office, for cycling days out (or walking), meandering through the wine routes of the 'Grand Cru', from Santenay to Dijon, or follow the tow path from Santenay to Chalon-sur-Saône. Fantastic Sunday market in Chagny (3km).
Getting around
The village of Santenay combines water and wine and although a car is recommended for shopping and exploring, the village of Santenay is ideally situated for walking and cycling on the Route des Grands Crus and the Canal du Centre,
