Good Monday morning! A lovely maison de maître for sale in Autun, France!
The listing for this house is very short but the photos speak volumes. A large main house plus additional gîte with five bedrooms and five bathrooms in total, currently run as a bed and breakfast. Another smaller house in need of renovation. A large garden of 3289 meters (about 0.75 acres) and a pool!
There is so much potential to develop this into a large private property, a generous bed and breakfast, or a retreat of some kind. I love the pretty façades covered in vines with the large blue shutters – so picturesque! I would love to spend time hosting guests and taking them on tours of the ancient ruins of Autun!
Authentic Maison de Maître with guest rooms, gîte, pool, large garden and another house to renovate. A unique opportunity either as a large family home or as rental/ bed and breakfeast.
Bordered with ramparts, the historic centre of Autun is home to a rich architectural heritage. In the heart of the old town, the Saint-Lazare cathedral, surmounted by a Gothic spire, has a remarkable Romanesque tympanum depicting the Last Judgment. Also of interest during a visit are the narrow medieval streets around the cathedral, the Rolin museum which houses collections of archaeological objects, sculptures and paintings, and the Natural History museum. The City of Art and History of Autun is also home to remarkable ancient remains, such as the Roman theatre, the biggest theatre of the Gallic Empire; the Saint-André gateway; the Arroux gateway; the Janus temple; the Gallo-Roman remains.
