As the owners, Chris and Judith, live on the premises they are present to greet their guests on arrival with a glass or two and give information on local events that week. They host a communal BBQ every Thursday for those interested to which everyone contributes food and wine. Chris and Judith being great food and wine lovers are on hand to help and advise with purchases, restaurant recommendations and are happy to make reservations for their guests
En la Marre is a haven of peace, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life for those searching a relaxing holiday, though within easy reach of all facilities and the wine region of the Cote d'Or. We are surrounded by fields and woods and the region is wonderful for walking and cycling. There is golf nearby, plenty of culture - music, theatres, chateaux, museums. This beautiful region caters for all tastes with good weather thrown in. It is not predominantly a tourist region only Beaune and Dijon attract a number of visitors.
A car is necessary for getting around but if wishing to take the train rather than drive to Dijon for the day, Chagny is the nearest railway station (20 minutes away). The T.G.V to Paris or Lyon is also 20 minutes away.
All linen, towels and tea towels provided.
As the total property can take up to 12 people it is suitable for groups with their own individual space
A tourist tax of 0,40 per person per night is payable during the stay
No smoking in the apartment, only outside if not disturbing others. Otherwise no strict rules other than leaving the accommodation in an acceptable state of cleanliness. Pets accepted under certain conditions - please ask first as we have our own dog
My husband, Christopher, and I bought our first holiday home in the village of Dracy-les-Couches in 1985 then in 1989 the farmhouse at En La Marre, 3 kms out of the village. We came to live here permanently in 1990 and started renovating the farm into a complex of six apartments plus our own, which were finally completed around 1996. We have very much enjoyed our life in this peaceful retreat with the added pleasure of the social life with our guests during the season. What can I not live without ? - our dog, Muffin, who being a young labrador-cross keeps us on our toes ; walks in the country with same ;music, mainly classical but still a fan of the 60's and 70's rock and country ; books, mainly non-fiction ; good food of all kinds ; Burgundy wine ; good summer weather. Travel-wise, we have taken advantage of the quiet winter months, when not renovating, to travel extensively independently, with our old caravan and dog in Morocco (twice for 3 months), more recently to Syria (before the troubles) with our old cat, but mostly in Australia with our 4WD camper there, stopping off en-route to most of the Asian countries, on the last trip into China. As hosts we think we are pretty good, sociable yet discreet. Our guests enjoy the option of socialising with others or keeping to themselves.
