La Cachette village cottage, Varzy Burgundy

Cottage front doorBoulangerie

Spend a week or two, even longer, in our spacious cottage and enjoy the relaxed life of a typical French village, with the advantage of many larger towns such as Auxerre, Beaune, Dijon, La Charité sur Loire and Nevers, all within an easy drive. Varzy is a medieval village in Burgundy, close to many historic large and small towns. Ideally situated for touring Burgundy including the wine areas, the many canals of the region and the nearby Loire Valley, or close enough for a day trip to Paris. The Nivernais canal, and its steady traffic of tourist barges, runs through Clamecy 16km away.

Varzy is a village of about 1,400 residents in central France. It is in the Departement of Nièvre in the Bourgogne (Burgundy) area, close to many prominent towns, historic villages and on the eastern edge of the scenic Loire valley. See bottom of page for map.  There has been a village on this site since the 5th century, and the remains of medieval fortifications are still in evidence.

The village has four cafés, four restaurants, a medical centre staffed with doctors and nurses, a dentist, a pharmacy, two bakeries, two supermarkets and a delicatessen-butcher. Encircling Varzy, following the line of the ancient wall, is a promenade where students from the local lycée have fashioned a striking memorial to the Holocaust.

'La Cachette’ has been formed from two former cottages providing the generous rooms of the present dwelling. The original cottage on the corner of rue St Pierre and rue du Moulin can be clearly seen on a sketch of the town dated 1570 with a vacant block between it and the next building where the second cottage was built. The beautiful and imposing 13th century church of St Pierre, with its twin bell-towers, houses a number of treasures

The cottage has 3 bedrooms — 2 double and 1 twin, living/dining room, sitting room, 2 bathrooms, kitchen with table/chairs, central heating, wireless internet, linen supplied and paved outdoor area.


Price: $1,175 per week with $250 deposit and 50 euro cleaning fee (left in house on departure).
