Les Chenes - Villa Holiday Rental in Rouvray, Côte-d'Or, France
A recently renovated French House with private swimming pool, large private gardens and lovely views.
Les Chenes is a spacious, sunny house which has been fully renovated to high standards. It is ¼ mile down a leafy lane from the busy village of Rouvray, in the Morvan National Park. It sits proudly in large gardens, with an orchard of cherry and apple trees, a large private swimming pool with secluded sunbathing terraces and is surrounded by fields and beautiful views down an agricultural valley with sunsets to die for. The gardens have the sun all day but there are several large trees to rest and dine under if needed with several dining areas. There is also a large wood shed with 2 swings inside, a large trampoline and a fire pit for evening entertainment and secure storage for bikes etc.

The Morvan Park is an all season area and not just a summer tourist place where everything shuts down out of season. There are lots of outdoor and indoor events held throughout the seasons, just check with the friendly tourist informations offices in Avallon, Saulieu and Quarre les Tombes. There are wonderful towns and cities in all directions. This is a really old part of France and all the villages are working villages, the out door sports are all year round and the restaurants are always busy with the locals and weekenders down from Paris who use this area as the British use areas such as the New Forest & the Lake district...somewhere to clear your head and enjoy the simpler things in life, this area is refreshingly different, friendly and vibrant. You will leave it loving it!
