La Guimbarde. Old village bakery in picturesque village of Frolois in the Cote d’Or
La Guimbarde was once the bakery in the hilltop village of Frolois. Today the experienced owners of 3 other holiday properties in the area are proud to introduce this newly renovated cottage to the holiday property market. The building once served the residents of the village their daily baguettes and croissants. Today, the property offers up to date, comfortable accommodation in a pretty village setting.
The house sleeps 4 adults in 2 bedrooms. A spacious king size double bedroom (bed dimension 160cm x 200cm) and a twin bedroom (2 beds of 90cm x 200cm) with new mattresses, ensure you sleep well during your stay. The beds have been made up with fresh white linens for your arrival. The rooms have an individual feel and relish in the uninterrupted views across the roof tops of Frolois to the countryside beyond. Cool, contemporary colour schemes have been chosen in the bedrooms to enable relaxation and restfulness. Generously sized picture windows allow peaceful contemplation or reading opportunities from an unspoiled position. There is enough storage for your personal belongings and both bedrooms are equipped with ventilation fans for the summer months and hairdryers for your use.
Each bedroom leads to an en-suite shower room, with over-sized showers, complimentary soap and lotions for your use. Small and large towels are provided.
The light, bright downstairs of the property offers the holiday maker satisfying living spaces in which to relax and prepare meals. The fully equipped Kitchen/dining space allows for lengthy dining with friends and family at the comfort of the dining table and chairs. Descend a few steps into the old fashioned, walk-in pantry cupboard housing the washing machine and storage. A pretty Juliette balcony at one end of the kitchen opens onto the garden terrace for an airy feel allowing a breeze through the house. A small corridor with a practical downstairs w.c. leads to a warm, sunny lounge with inviting soft seating for all the occupants, UK free to air television channels and a cosy log burning stove for cooler evenings ensure you have everything you need to relax after a busy day visiting the region. Glass doors open onto a veranda with a few steps down to the enclosed, south facing garden, which also enjoys the wonderful views of the village and valley beyond.
The garden area invites you outside to enjoy the long summer days from the comfort of a sun lounger for more opportunities to enjoy the surroundings.
