Benjamin Haas purchased this House in 2007
Why Benjamin Haas chose Saint-Jean-de-Trézy
We love the location as it has beautiful views on the Dheune valley to one side and is at the foot of the vineyards of the Cote Couchoise on the other. In between Couches and St. Leger sur Dheune it is very close to all amenities. The cottage we now rent out, we comfortably lived in whilst the main house was renovated. It is next to our main house and there is a large hedge that separates the two preserving privacy.
What makes this House unique
Great view, private garden, cute setting and cosy house, honest quality materials, comfortable beds. Satellite TV and internet via WIFI included. Swimming is possible in a lake, 10 minutes from our home. During July and August guests can share our private heated pool by appointment. We live in the main house, so if you need anything, you can ask immediately. Shops and facilities 5 minute drive away TGV Le Creusot is 20 minutes from our house ( for a day trip to Paris at 1 hour 10 min with the fast train, or Lyon at 35 min) On the edge of the Cote Couchois and very near to the famous Burgundy wine region the Cote D'Or. Beaune and its Hospices, not to be missed, Chalon sur Saone and former Roman capital Autun also at an easy distance. Wining and dining, walking, cycling, visiting chateaux, Voie Verte, ballooning, a quad tour, climbing experiences, Acroparc and many historic and cultural attractions, you can spend your time well in this area! Or maybe you would prefer just sitting in the garden, enjoying the views and a glass of wine?

Excellent location, cozy and quiet
The house is well-located to see the Romanesque churches in Burgundy, (about 60-100 km) which were, along with Beaune, Autun and Sully, our principal interests. The house is absolutely charming and dead quiet at night. We were able to eat supper outside on four of our seven nights, which was a real treat. Benjamin had some excellent suggestions, in particular the Sunday market at Chazny, which is one of the very best we have seen in many years of visiting France, and the La Tour Bajole restaurant in Couches. There is also an excellent butcher shop/chacuterie in Vermenton. There is even an nice 10 KM walk with lots of good views right from the house. In short, this house has everything you could want.
Thank you for this great review. Also great you have given good tips for future guests. Indeed we have many good restaurants near to us. Yours gratefully. Benjamin and Frances
The cottage has been renovated to an exceptionally high standard with great attention to detail. All the appliances and accessories in the property are high quality. The cottage is in an ideal location for visiting the Burgundy region. It was great to spend time at the cottage relaxing in the garden taking in the amazing views.

Cozy Cottage - Perfect Stay
We had a wonderful time in Burgundy and loved our vacation cottage from where we explored Beaune, Dijon, regional wineries and chateaus. Frances and Benjamin made us feel very welcome and at home and shared many tips for our journeys. For us it was perfect.
Markus & Abby

Perfect mini vacation in Burgundy!
Benjamin is the perfect host and his beautiful cottage is perfect! Very close to small and large wine producers! Beautiful view and so relaxing!
I am glad that your Pinot Noir tour was such a success!
Thank you for the compliments
This guest house was fantastic, we only wish we had stayed longer and will definitely return. The house was spotless and the host was friendly and knowledgeable. We really appreciated the little things like a welcoming bottle of wine, shopping bags for a trip into town for supplies, umbrellas, a clean sponge in the kitchen and many more. We only had a few days in the area and with the help of our host we made the most of those days. We look forward to returning.
Dear Both, it was lovely having you with us, thank you for the compliments on us taking care of the small details

Fantastic location with a beautiful view and great hospitality! Highly recommended!
This beautiful cottage is well equipped and furnished very tastefully. All we needed was there and the owners made us feeling home. The area is beautiful and surrounded by vineyards. From the cottage it’s easy access to the rest of Burgundy and the famous wineries and beautiful Beane are close by. We will absolutely go back to this marvellous place!
The main attraction in this regions is of course Wine! Lots to visit and taste! Many of the large wine houses can be visited, for example Pommard (red) and Meusault (white). In most villages you will find a cellar to visit, or see the wine farmers about their daily chores in the fields. At the house are introductions to our neighbours, Mrs Berbezy for red, and Bernard Royet for whites and wonderful Cremants ( the local champagne). With wine goes food so the region boasts many restaurants, from 3 star Michelin like Lameloise in Chagny, to the little places that offer the locals their daily 3 course lunch for 11 euros. In St. Leger you will also find a pizzeria, a kebab shop and a restaurant that offers a lunch menu and evening a la carte dishes.
You can visit a market every day of the week. We specially like the cosy Beaune Saturday morning and Chalon sur Saone on Sunday morning. Unique is the early Monday morning market in Louhans, where there is livestock and the famous Bresse chicken.
At less than 30km from us there are 4 golf courses: Montchanin 18 holes, Levernois (near Beaune) 18 holes, Chalon 18 holes and Autun 12 holes.
We have lamas at the house, we can organize a walk with them.
Also for children there are several activities such as Acroparc in Givry at 20 min drive, a secure adventure parc with climbs through the trees from easy to difficult and good supervision: swing from tree top to tree top. There are pools and a small sailing lake at Autun, and the summer slide, steam train and carting at le Creusot. At an hours drive at Lac de Seton there are jet skis and water bikes for rent, a lovely day out when it is hot!
The voie Verte along the Canal du Centre is right nearby in St.Leger sur Dheune. You can walk, rollerblade or cycle along the Canal on 120 km of paved road. At the harbour of St. Leger you can rent a boat or bicycles for a stroll along the canal.
At walking distance is historic Couches castle that organises kids activities too, making it a must see place for young and old. If you wish you can book a wine tasting after the visit.
The Hospices are a must see in Beaune, and a trip along the castles towards Cormatin and Tournus with lunch on the way makes a lovely day too.
Architecture galore at Cluny, and the region is the base of Romanesque architecture. A bit further out the beautiful abbey of Fontenay, and picturesque Semur en Auxois. For a city trip Dijon is not to be missed.
Hot air ballon rides or a tour on a Quad are also wonderful ways to experience Burgundy. Ask us to book in advance for you.
