There are about 20 houses in the hamlet of Tivauche-le-Haut. It is a quiet place with no working farms. Relatively high with great views stretching into the Morvan national park. The nearby (15 min) medieval town of Semur-en-Auxois is an undiscovered gem. Driving times to major towns are as follows; Dijon 1 hr, Beaune 1 hr, Auxerre 50 min, Chablis 45 min, Avallon 25 min, Montbard 20 min. From Montbard the TGV train to Paris takes just one hour.

About Bill & Jenny
Bill was born in Bath and having completed university in Wales, avoided working in an office by running away to operate hotel barges on the canals and rivers of France. Jenny, a Prue Leith trained chef, left London for two weeks to cover for a friend who needed a break from cooking. Both Bill and Jenny intended to move on from Burgundy, but with the addition of dogs and children and the realisation that they already lived in one of the most beautiful parts of Europe, why change a thing?
Bill & Jenny purchased this farmhouse in 2000
Why Bill & Jenny chose Corsaint
For seven years we lived a 10 minute walk away from this property. The last two of these years were spent scouring the region looking for an interesting place to buy and renovate - it was a satisfying discovery when this search finally brought us to the perfect farmhouse on our doorstep!
What makes this farmhouse unique
We often say, 'there's magic in the air in Tivauche'! The locals love it here and visitors keep coming back time after time - naturally we do everything we can to make your stay comfortable, but we cannot take all of the credit for people's attachment to Tivauche-le-Haut. The view from the terrace looking towards the Morvan park is wonderful. At night the same terrace makes a perfect star gazing platform as there's no light pollution. With our rural location, we sometimes feel wonderfully 'lost in France', and yet day trips to Paris are possible as it's only one hour by TGV train + 15 minutes to Montbard station. Tours can be arranged for winetasting, biking, walking, bird watching, ballooning and world war two resistance sites Massage, yoga and pilates can also be arranged. We can provide a taxi service with our comfortable air conditioned VW minibus if you want a break from driving at any time during your stay (Bill is a qualified coach and truck driver). And of course evening meals are available upon request from Jenny - just tell us what you like to eat!
