Holiday Rental House
This delightful canal-side house, with its unique canal-side setting, nestling in its own park like gardens of an acre, is 2 kms from the village of Santenay (shorter if you take the house dinghy) and 11 kms from Beaune. It has all basic amenities, with two fine restaurants, an excellent boulangerie, butcher and loads of wine houses. It is a small spa town, famous for its Premier Cru wines and its 14th-century chateau. Great location for rock climbing, cycling/walking days out (bikes can be easily hired), meandering through the famous wine routes or along the canal. From the comfort of your garden, you can fish, picnic, walk or explore the canal with your own house boat or if you prefer, sit back and relax in one of the shady garden areas (with your glass of Santenay) and watch the b...This delightful canal-side house, with its unique canal-side setting, nestling in its own park like gardens of an acre, is 2 kms from the village of Santenay (shorter if you take the house dinghy) and 11 kms from Beaune.

So glad you enjoyed your stay and you were able to make use of the garden thanks to the good weather. The restaurant where you enjoyed your meal, deserves a mention, Le Vendangerot, fine cuisine at a reasonable price.

About the neighbourhood
Santenay is a small spa town (850 inhabitants) which, by quirk of french law, has a casino. It is famous for its Premier Cru wines and its 14th-century chateau. It has two fine restaurants and basic amenities, including two bakers, a butcher, and a handy supermarket. There is an open-air swimming pool, open July and August and horse-riding. Bikes can be hired from the tourist office, for cycling days out (or walking), meandering through the wine routes of the 'Grand Cru', from Santenay to Dijon, or follow the tow path from Santenay to Chalon-sur-Saône. Fantastic Sunday market in Chagny (3km).
Getting around
The village of Santenay combines water and wine and although a car is recommended for shopping and exploring, the village of Santenay is ideally situated for walking and cycling on the Route des Grands Crus and the Canal du Centre,
