Our favourite rooms
St André has lots of light, a working fireplace, an Ercol wood-framed settee, concrete floors and direct access to the garden and pool. Pick Arroux if you fancy hardwood floors, lots of space and views of the terraced gardens; it also has an antique armoire and a reading nook upstairs on the loft level. St Andoche has an open bathroom with freestanding bathtub, and the finest views around – of Mont Beuvray and the gardens.
There's a sleek black-lined swimming pool in the grounds, close to the stream.
Hiking boots and history books – for the forest and Autun antiquities respectively.
Pets are allowed in St André and St Pierre.
Cots cost €10; extra beds are €30. The restaurant does a children’s menu.
