L‘Ecurie is situated in the peaceful hamlet of Ecorsaint (approx 45 minutes west of Dijon) in the heart of the Burgundian countryside. There are no shops or cafes in the hamlet but both are just a 10 minute drive away. L'Ecurie has been transformed from three barns into a lovely home which comfortably sleeps 8.
The kitchen is well equipped to cater for up to 14 people and includes a large Ambassador gas hob and oven, microwave, cafetiere and food processor. The large dining room (seats 14 comfortably) has an open wood fire. The room has an interesting arched window which dates back to the 17th century which was used, with a stone slab sink, for washing and drying cheese. It has now been glazed and overlooks the back garden terrace.
Directly off the dining room is the salon with two large arched windows leading out onto the terrace. The salon is spacious and offers comfortable seating. There is a large Burgundian armoire which houses the stereo, with CD player, and a selection of CD's (mainly classical). There is a television receiving BBC world channels and a DVD/video machine with a selection of videos and DVD's. The salon has a wood burning fire and under floor heating. The house benefits from central heating throughout.
