You will stay in the recently renovated Ferme de la Lochere in the small village of Marigny le Cahouët.  A charming, typically sleepy French village, with a Bar, Boulangerie and Provisions Shop and small traditional village school, Mairie & Post Office. Oh yes, and a small château of its very own. Situated on the edge of the stunning Canal de Bourgogne. Ever changing with the seasons, but magnificent at all times of year, with summer sun blazing across the forests and fields, and the autumn leaves that glow with glorious fiery reds and oranges.

Le Ferme de la Lochere is situated next to a trickling stream which bears the same name. With a view out over rolling countryside to the top of the valley, it’s a glorious way to greet the day. The newly renovated and lovingly restored 200 year old property was once part of the Chateau of Marigny le Cahouët, just a stone’s throw away. gite-entrance_hall1It gives you all the elegance and comfort of contemporary living while guarding the precious heart and character of the building with its windows and pigeon tower. The interior is crisp, light and spacious with stone floors and stairs. Large Moroccan lanterns bathe the building in soft light. The living space is open plan encompassing a modern professional kitchen where your meals will be prepared, dining area with large hand carved dining table big enough to accommodate ten or more people in comfort and a lounging space with three large impossibly comfy sofas placed around the grand fireplace, the centrepiece of the room. sittingroom_kitchen2

Impressive oak arched doors lead you out onto the courtyard garden area where a large table and umbrella is waiting for outdoor dining and relaxing. A second courtyard is at the other end of the building where the swimming pool is located. Ideal for unwinding during the long lazy summer days and evenings.


Bedrooms are large and spacious and luxurious. All en-suite with impeccable bathroom fittings. Each of the five rooms has its own character and special view. All in all an exceptional home from home.
