Holiday Home for 12 people in Lainsecq


Gorgeous country house freshly renovated and decorated with taste on 2 floors for 12 people (4 bedrooms and one bathroom) with fireplace, huge heated covered private pool and beautiful garden with an open view on the surrounding countryside.

This beautiful house, located in a quiet village, offers all the tranquillity desired for quality family holidays. Its large flower garden (equipped with garden furniture and a barbecue) with an open view on the beautiful surrounding countryside, will offer you wonderful moments of relaxation, while its large private heated pool will allow you to have fun with your children. With two comfortable living rooms, four spacious and tastefully decorated bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and two modern bathrooms, this two-storey house is a paradise for families looking for cultural and sporting holidays. This charming property is located a few kilometres away from the historic village of Saint Sauveur en Puisaye.

Located in the heart of the Puisaye region, in the department of Yonne in Burgundy, 180 km south of Paris, the historic village of Saint Sauveur en Puisaye, home to the writer Colette, offers all types of shops (health centre, supermarket, grocery store, tourist office, bakery, hairdresser, wine merchant, art galleries, newsstand, restaurants, florist, antiques shop, garden supplies), as well as the Colette museum (located in the village castle, from the sixteenth century) and the birthplace of the famous novelist (classified as a historical monument since 2011, it offers a journey back in time, to meet the youth of the writer of "Claudine"). A keep dating from the 11th century, called "Saracen tower", and listed as a historical monument since 1996, overlooks the city. The 12th century Saint-Jean-Baptiste church, built of ferruginous sandstone, is the pride of the village. City of character steeped in history, Saint Sauveur is also a lively village with a rich and varied cultural and artistic activity. Indeed, it hosts each year the "International Festival of Women Writings", the "Nights of St Sauveur" (festival of contemporary music in the castle park), the musical festival "Comme ça me chante", the "Estivales de Puisaye" (classical music festival), the "annual potters' fair", the "30 de January" craft fair, the art exhibition "Art in courtyards and gardens" and the "Fête de l'art" (exhibition of art and concerts at the "Poèterie" in the old brickyard of the village, alternative place occupied by artists in activity). Its typical Wednesday morning market offers a rich selection of regional and artisanal products.

The region of Puisaye offers a multitude of touristic and cultural activities, such as the wonderful village of Vézelay (World Heritage Site since 1979, especially for its fabulous basilica, masterpiece of Romanesque art), the charming medieval town of Auxerre, the spectacular medieval site of Guédelon, the majestic St Fargeau castle (and its famous annual historical show), but also the castle of Druyes-Les-Belles-Fontaines (and its medieval village with fortifications dating from the 11th century), the pyrotechnic show of Rogny les Sept Ecluses, the underground quarries of Aubigny, Ratilly Castle (and its pottery workshop), the pottery village of Saint Amand en Puisaye (and its 16th century castle housing a pottery Museum), the convent of Treigny (and its contemporary ceramics exhibitions), the village of Toucy (and its jazz festival) and the art brut museum of La Fabuloserie, amongst others.

La Puisaye is also a centre of gastronomy thanks to its proximity to many vineyards (Sancerre, Irancy, Chablis, Saint Bris), its selection of exceptional gastronomic restaurants (offering traditional dishes such as snails, bœuf Bourguignon, coq au vin or gougères) and its typical markets offering a rich selection of local cheeses and other local products (in particular that of Toucy, elected "most beautiful market of Burgundy" in 2018 and nominated "most beautiful market of France" in 2019).

You and your children will be delighted to visit the educational farms of the region (St Fargeau castle farm, Vanneau mill farm) where you can rub shoulders with farm animals and learn more about peasant life in past centuries. You can also discover the Puisaye aboard the Transpoyaudin, a tourist train that surveys the abandoned railway lines between Moutiers and Villiers-Saint-Benoît, via Toucy. In summer, many antique fairs and garage sales take place every weekend in different surrounding villages.

But Puisaye is above all a wonderful green setting for nature lovers and sports activities. Its green hills provide an ideal setting for walking, mountain biking or horseback riding. Its many hiking trails will make you discover a protected and wooded countryside, where you will cross a lot of wild animals. The Bourdon Lake offers a nautical base with many activities (paddle, canoeing, rowing, windsurfing), as well as a supervised beach where you can swim or rent a pedal boat. You will also be able to fish there, just like at the neighbouring pond of Moutiers. Around the lake, there are also many sports activities available such as horse riding, tree climbing (at the animal park of Boutissaint), bungee jumping, air ballooning, golf, tennis, and even rail cycling on the old railway. Don’t wait any longer, Puisaye awaits you!

    Very nice house outside Lainsecq a few km from Treigny. We stayed there with 8 people, which was just right since there are 2 bathrooms and 2 toilet. The house is fully equipped, especially the kitchen, also the pool is great. 9.2

    Belle maison de charme au cœur de la Bourgogne, idéal pour un week end au calme, la piscine sans être chauffée mais grâce à son mode de couverture est très agréable. L'aménagement de la maison conviviale et pratique, cuisine très bien équipée et bonne literie, nombreux jeux de société, accessoires de piscine, Wi-fi, station d'accueil musique performante. Barbecue un peu simpliste mais fonctionnel et réservation assez fastidieuse par Booking. Très bon séjour pour nous. 7.8

    Propriétaire malhonnête qui a menti sur son annonce d'origine : la piscine n'est pas chauffée. Ce serait bien que le site vérifie les informations avant de publier des offres mensongères. La télé ne fonctionnait pas à notre arrivée, la table était collante, on ne peut pas se mettre à 12 sur la table. Quelques chaises sont branlantes. La télévision n'est pas montrée sur les photos car elle est située à l'étage dans un petit coin où seules 2 personnes peuvent la regarder sur un petit clic-clac. L'un des lits est situé en haut d'une mezzanine, je ne suis pas sure qu'elle soit règlementaire, vu la hauteur et l'accès. Certaines lampes ne marchent pas dans le salon. 5.3

    Heerlijk rustiek huis, heel geschikt voor gezinnen met kinderen, maar die van ons waren net iets té jong. Kruipen buiten kan niet ivm kiezelstenen. Verder heel gezellig en het fornuis en de oven nodigen echt uit tot koken! 7.3

    Een uitstekende accommodatie voor rustzoekers op het Franse platteland. Het huis is uiterst smaakvol in de stijl van een oude boerderij ingericht en zeer compleet en luxueus ingericht. Wij verbleven er met 2 gezinnen met 7 personen en dat ging uitstekend. Wij hadden pech met het weer, maar door de gezelligheid in huis hebben we daar nauwelijks last van gehad. De locale beheerders doen uitstekend werk, want we troffen het huis in perfecte staat aan, met uitgebreide informatie over activiteiten, bezienswaardigheden, winkels en restaurants in de omgeving. Ze reageerden zeer allert op de enkele vraag die wij hadden. Hoewel in de Bourgogne is dit overigens niet het gebied met de wijnhuizen en wijngaarden. 8

    Zoals al eerder aangegeven hebben wij het uitstekend naar de zin gehad en zijn wij zeer tevreden over de begeleiding door het verhuurbedrijf en de accommodatie zelf. Bijna het mooiste vakantieverblijf waar we ooit verbleven hebben. Wij vonden alleen de schoonmaakkosten a € 100,- pittig. Wij hebben geen buitenweer gehad, maar in dat geval zou het terrasmeubilair wel wat mager geweest zijn. Het zwembad was naar ons idee geen 28 gr. Daardoor maar 1x gebruikt, maar verder eigenlijk ook niet gemist. 8
