About Mary Kate Saunders
Kirk and Mary Kate Saunders split their time, and their hearts, between their homes in Laguna Beach, California, and Flavigny Sur Ozerain.With their teen-age sons Kian and Rory, their families and their architecture and physical therapy practices in California and the U.S., Laguna remains 'home,' but Flavigny steals all their free time! The charm, the bells, the food and especially the people of Flavigny draw them back as often as possible.
Mary Kate Saunders purchased this House in 2011
Why Mary Kate Saunders chose Flavigny-sur-Ozerain
We have named this home 'Le Cadeau,' 'the gift.' Our dear friends, the O'Neals introduced us to Flavigny's charm, offering us a visit to their home in 2007, and later assisted us in purchasing it. We feel that the opportunity to experience this treasure is a gift we were given, and a gift that we want to pass on to our family and friends, old and new!
What makes this House unique
There are many favorite aspects to life in Flavigny, but marking time with the bells stands out, along with purchasing croissants from the bakery truck every morning and lunch at La Grange. Sitting with a glass of wine on the balcony, watching the sun set over Monsieur & Madame Grob's lovely garden isn't bad either!

The property matched the description but exceeded our expectations. It was more beautiful than the photos and more functional than the text described. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Can’t wait to go back. We fell in love with the town and this gift of a home.
Don’t miss the local winery, Domaine Vignoble Flavigny-Anesia.
This is an amazing property in an amazing town. Just wonderful
Charming quiet get away
The town is in a charming medieval town built around an abbey. The surrounding areas are all farms with the friendliest cows and horses you will ever encounter.The home is beautiful and large with all the modern amenities. If you are looking for a quiet getaway this is the place. It is very close to Beume and Dijon, and a lot of historic places to explore. We enjoyed our stay immensely.
Wonderful stay in Flavigny
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Saunders' home in Flavigny. Their place was charming, well-equipped and very clean. The Saunders were also helpful in answering our questions and in suggesting good restaurants and places to visit. We loved having the experience of living in a medieval village in France and of having easy access to so many beautiful sights in the surrounding areas. Thanks for a great vacation in Burgundy!
Glad you enjoyed it!
Enchanting, Artistic and thoughtfully preserved and restored getaway
The house is located in a quiet medieval village. Its character and history are inspiring and beautiful. It has rustic charm with modern amenities. The photos can't depict the reality of the high vaulted ceilings and preserved ancient beam structure that awes you when entering the front door. My husband and I felt that the house was perfect for the two of us. We used it as a base camp to travel the nearby vineyards, countryside, neighboring villages and Chateaus. After a day of exploration we enjoyed returning to the tranquility of the house and garden. Restaurants in the immediate area are few. We either cooked our meals in or drove to nearby restaurants and the drives are magnificent. The owners are very conscientious of your well being while staying at their home and went out of their way to make sure we were happy and comfortable. We highly recommend this experience if you're looking for an adventure in a medieval village without roughing it.
Beautiful village and great history
We enjoyed the "quaintness" and village feel. Didn't expect the history of Caesar and the Gaul's or the nearby Abby. Plan for more time to explore the Burgundy region.
