Maison de Vacances Gacogne
Lovely, spacious holiday home with garden, in the heart of the Morvan region
This large, attractive holiday home is located in the hamlet La Roche, around 1.5 km from the village of Gâcogne. The Dutch owners did a wonderful job furnishing this old farmhouse, which has a comfortable yet traditional and typically French interior. The back garden features an elevated terrace (same level as the living area of the house), which is the perfect place to enjoy long summer evenings, maybe with a nice BBQ and a glass of Bourgogne wine. Go down the steps to reach the large, grassy garden dotted with fruit trees. The beautiful, green Morvan region is characterised by stunning nature, hills and vistas. Go for a walk and enjoy a picnic in one of the many lovely spots on the lake or in the woods. Hidden among all the green, you’ll find some picturesque towns and beautiful castles. Vézelay (39 km) with its Basilique Ste. Madelaine, the castle of Bazoches (26 km) and the towns of Aunay-en-Bazois (31 km), Marrault (38 km) and Thoisy-la-Berchère (49 km) are all well worth a visit. Take the children to the beach to enjoy the sun or go out on the water for some wind surfing or a tour on a pedalo – there are no less than five large recreational lakes nearby: Lac de Pannecière (18 km), St. Settons (22 km), Agnan (30 km), Baye (32 km) and Merle (44 km). There’s a supermarket in Lormes (12 km). Gâcogne has a bakery and a restaurant.
