4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
Montpont-en-Bresse, Saone-et-Loire, Bourgogne-Franche-Comte
The beautiful old house is a restored, rustic watermill situated in the heart of the Bresse region in Southern Burgundy peacefully set between the mountains, lakes and waterfalls of the stunning Jura region on the one side and one of the powerhouses of French winemaking, Burgundy’s Côte D’Or, on the other.
