GENERAL INFORMATION :
LET US INTRODUCE L’EGLANTINE :
Our holiday residence is in Sigy-le-Châtel, a little idyllic village, counting ± 100 inhabitants, in the department “Saône-et-Loire” in the region “Bourgogne” (Burgundy). In this splendid region, one imagines oneself in the South.
Our gîte is situated on a hill, “lieu-dit Corcelle”, in the hamlet “Corcelle”, with a grand view on Sigy-le-Châtel. If you use your GPS Sigy-le-Châtel is the place name and ‘Lieu-dit Corcelle’ is the street name. Nobody has a house number on the hill, but L’Eglantine is the only house with fulminating green shutters.
A LITTLE HISTORY :
Our house is probably built in the 16th century. It belonged to the nearest farm and served as residence for shepherds with little flocks of sheep and pigs, who lived there during the winter months.
Why the name “L’Eglantine”? In the garden are a lot of roses. We love wild roses and intend to plant a lot of eglantines in the near future.
DESCRIPTION OF THE GARDEN :
Our house is surrounded with a spacious garden. There is enough space to relax in the garden-chairs or bistro seats, to have a pleasant dinner outside at the wooden table, to have a barbeque and to enjoy the breathtaking view on the medieval castle and the Romanesque church of Sigy. Do you want to swim? Take a dip in the heated swimming pool. (Click for more information!) For the children we also have a playground with a swing and other things. At the drive in front of the house we have room for a few cars.
Very particular is the garden-set of stone in the front-garden. We call this our “Flintstones”. If you take a good look at the photo underneath, you’ll know why!
