Ring the bell on the gate, to enter gardens that are secluded, charming, full of colour with a babbling brook. Here in the heart of Burgundy country you are immersed in the silence of a valley of vines. Light spills into the sitting room through arched vine-clad windows while cream walls and Indian rugs add to the simple elegance of this maison de maître. Antiques and travel are the owners' passion, and David's gentle Irish brogue is enchanting (no surprise to hear he has interviewed European royalty for a prestigious magazine). The grand staircase in the centre of this gracious house would not be out of place on a 1930s luxury cruise liner, while interesting paintings and handsome oriental fabrics add up to a mix of styles that work beautifully. Bedrooms vary in size and have lovely seersucker linen and antique prints; bathrooms are classically tasteful. Terraced lawns lead down to the heated pool, the meadows and trees, lavish breakfasts include unusual homemade jams, and the wonderful Voie Verte cycle route, along the former railway, runs nearby.

Local points of interest from
David Eades & Niels Lierow:

  • Mont Avril: From the house it is an easy 45min walk to the summit,with a lovely panorama of the countryside:the Morvan massif,the Monts du Beaujolais,and the Jura Mts.In clear weather Mont Blanc,180kms distant,can be seen. Tiny wild orchids await you here.
  • Chateau de Cormatin: 25kms south of l'Orangerie, is a moated, turetted fantasy set in a superb formal garden "à la française", with a park of lawns and ancient trees and a walled kitchen garden. Prepare to be overwhelmed by the richness of the interior.
  • Chapaize:A delightful village a few kilometers from Cormatin, Chapaize's jewel is its thousand-year old church. The tower,in typical Cluny style, rises high above the village and can be seen for miles around. Eclectic concerts held regularly in the church.
  • Brancion: "Picturesque“ doesn´t do justice to Brancion, an ancient village on a hill with stunning westward views and dominated by its chateau. The 10th century church, rising out of a lawn, has wonderful medieval frescoes. 500 year old market-hall.
  • Côte Chalonnaise: From Chagny to the little medieval town of St.Gengoux, the lovely hills and valleys of this area are home to chateaux, romanesque churches, tiny villages and vineyards. Charolais cattle graze peacefully, wildlife abounds in the woods.
  • Tournus: This town, on the west bank of the Saône, has a splendid, marvellously preserved Romanesque abbey. There are imposing houses dating from the 16th and 17th centuries and narrow, winding streets. The view from the east bank at sunset is beautiful.

"This was our second stay at L'Orangerie and once again everything was perfect: fabulous hosts, a warm welcome, a beautiful room and an exquisite breakfast. It really is faultless. David and Nils always have the best restaurant recommendations too. We will be hoping to fit in another couple of days there in July."

"L’Orangerie was truly magnificent. It’s hard to put into words, but my wife and I stayed there for two nights and wished we had stayed for 7. David and Nils were fantastic hosts and not only knew the area but really know how to relax and create a comfortable environment. It truly was memorable. The home is in a small village outside of Chalon Sur Saone and it is set in the countryside of Burgundy. It is close to Buxy which is charming itself, and an easy drive to Beaune and Chalon Sur Saone. We arrived on a Saturday and were greeted by both hosts at the gate. Our room was comfortable and inviting, and we set up home very easily. We were given a tour of the garden, the pool, the living area and the home itself. They have done a marvelous job at restoring the house and it works well with several guests at a time. The breakfast was magnificent. As a former chef, I am not always easy on food as a customer, but David did a fantastic job of adding breads and jams with meats and cheeses from the local area; fresh juice and coffee were also a great part of one of the best breakfasts I have enjoyed in a B&B. David and Nils do make their own jam with unique flavors such as ginger and whiskey. We dined with a German couple and a young lady from Nice and the conversation was wonderful. With the doors open on the countryside and jazz and classical music in the background, it was the best way to wake up in Europe. We are home 2 days now and cannot wait to go back. David and Nils live in the house and make you feel very much at home. They value their quiet and appreciate the relaxing afternoon, the local village, the uniquenesses of their area and life itself. It certainly rubs off on the experience. We left L’Orangerie to get married in Terre Blanche, but wished we had stayed once more on our way back to Paris. I truly recommend L’Orangerie as a stop in France and we will be back soon."
