Deep in real peace-wrapped country, this place of secluded old-style comfort and breathtaking views of the Morvan has new and rightly enthusiastic Dutch owners: it’s gorgeous. Inside are open fires, antique beds, sympathetic period decorations, antique linen and super modern showers. Rooms are vast and there are two salons, one gloriously golden green, for lazing about. A baronial double stair leads down to the fine garden and the ha-ha where, rather endearingly, chickens may be roaming. A base for church, château and vineyard visits – a peaceful paradise.
