We are in a small village of 1,400 inhabitants on the border between the Paris area and Burgundy. His name is VINNEUF. Our house is a typical farmhouse built in Burgundy, as it then was, with locally available materials: stone and wood.
Upon arrival, we will have undertaken renovation and restructuring to give it a sober by using noble and traditional materials, stone and lime, while retaining the character of the Burgundy countryside. We are an hour from Paris by motorway (exit # 18 of the A5 and 10 km from the exit)
Notable attractions include Fontainebleau (castle), Provins (medieval), Troyes (city of art and tradition bonnetière), Vaux le Vicomte, Barbizon (city of painters), Disney-land (amusement park).
The surrounding countryside, agriculture and forestry, is limited to the north by the Seine (5 kilometers from Vinneuf) and south by the Yonne (1 km), the latter flowing into the river in Montereau Fault Yonne (Seine et Marne ).
These two “green corridors” also constitute places of walk (walking, cycling) and recreation (fishing, swimming, water sports …) significant strengths as they are dotted with lakes and landscaped lakes.
We have to Vinneuf a pony club also having some horses (500 m from our house) and discovered tennis courts (200 m).
The village has a remarkable natural area with the water of gravels which covers 14 hectares. Open to all, built for relaxation and picnicking, it is also a place for sports with its fitness trail.
