REDUCED in price - South of the Chalonnaise wine region in a vineyard / rural setting deep in a popular tourism sector we have this great house (former winery) that has been completely renovated in 2005 is now boasting around 425m2 living space.
It has large volumes (kitchen and dining room: 85m2, double room: 65m2), renovated with high-end quality materials, there is a large stone gallery showing off the works done by the local Macon, with beautiful views of the Burgundian countryside.
The living areas offer bright, very good volume rooms, continuing into the double living room, an office and a large area (80 m2), which has a separate entrance, toilets and water point: the creation of additional rooms (B & B) is possible. At this level also, a more intimate space of a bedroom with bathroom, laundry room, bathroom, and bedroom. Mezzanine accessible from the double living.
Another staircase provides access to the floor where you will find three large bedrooms, full bathroom (shower and bath), toilet and dressing.
Authentic features highlighted: beams and stonework. Cellars exceptional. In the garden, garage and workshops on a surface of 150 m2 yet converted. Two hectares of land, largely detached.
The train station is 20 minutes. 1:40 Paris centre. A beautiful property, beautifully maintained, the output of a pretty village, ideal as a second home, or, given the volume layout might be easy development in guest rooms, tables breakfasts, cottages.

The department of Saone-et-Loire is in the Bourgogne region, or Burgundy if you prefer. The locals and the French in general refer to this region as Bourgogne, it is only the rest of the world that translates it as Burgundy, so take your pick.
Most of the population of Saone-et-Loire department live in the east as this area is much better developed in terms of transport networks and has much more employment. it is not far for people to commute to Lyon which is one of France's biggest cities.
Saone et Loire offers some very diverse landscapes which are a delight to discover: hedged / bocage farmlands, vineyards, woodlands, lakes and ponds will probably seduce most of you. The department also boasts a great heritage in its buildings, Roman villages, vineyards and more.
Bourgogne is one of France's main wine producing areas, that is how you will know it as Burgundy I guess. It is well known for both its red and white wines, mostly made from Pinot noir and Chardonnay grape varieties, although others are used including Aligote, Pinot blanc, Gamay and Sauvignon blanc. The 'wine region' is divided into the Cote-d'Or, where the most expensive and prized Burgundies are found, Beaujolais where the first wines of the season come from on the third Thursday of November each year, Chablis, as well as the Cote Chalonnaise and Macon (try a Macon Village wine, my personal favourite).
The reputation, quality and heritage of the best wines, along with the fact that they are sometimes produced in small quantities, leads to a high demand and in turn high prices, with some Burgundies being ranking amongst the most expensive wines in the world.
