Judith’s beautiful barn conversion is a fantastic find in the quiet and peaceful French countryside. It is convenient for many Burgundy vineyards with some superb examples in driving distance. The property is spacious and comfortable and provides all the necessary amenities. Highly recommended if you want a quiet relaxing holiday or are looking for a comfortable base to explore the beautiful French countryside.

Judith and her husband are the perfect hosts ! At first we couldn't find the place and we only had a few kilometers of gasoline left in the tank. So Judith came to pick us (even though it was 23 O'Clock in the evening), up and saved our day! The place was perfect as described in the pictures . It is is very clean, spacious and we had everything we needed! Although it is situated in the nature there is still much to do in the surroundings (wine tasting, visit the local markets or just relax at the swimming pool). I would recommend this place to everyone! You will get a warm welcome of Judith and her husband (and there dog Muffin).

We had a delightful time in this rural country setting, with cows looking at us from across the fence, a lovely pool to swim in each day... If it is the country you want you can not do (URL HIDDEN) traffic noise...A real retreat! Thank you Judith & Chris

Judith and Christopher are incredibly nice hosts. They made everything in their power to make our stay the best moment possible! They organised us a new barbeque within a day as the old was broken, invited us over to their place for a welcome drink on the first evening and recommended a very nice restaurant in Couches! The location is how it is described in the middle of nowhere, but still close enough to small town where you can find restaurants and supermarkets. We had an incredibly relaxing time and would return there any time! Thank you both of you ;-)

Thanks Kath for your great review. You were both delightful guests and fitted in very well with our other guests of several nationalities. We all had a great time on the drinks evening and we were sorry your visit was so short. Please come back and have more fun with us. Love Judith and Chris

L'accueil de Judith a été très chaleureux et nous sommes ravis d'avoir passé ces 4 jours à l'Aligote Farmhouse, dans un cadre calme et reposant.

Le logement est bien équipé, propre et calme. Nous conseillons cet endroit à tous ceux qui recherchent du calme en pleine nature. La piscine est très agréable aussi et Judith et Christopher sont très accueillants. Petit détail : pas de store sur le velux donc réveil avec la lumière du jour!

About Judith

My husband, Christopher, and I bought our first holiday home in the village of Dracy-les-Couches in 1985 then in 1989 the farmhouse at En La Marre, 3 kms out of the village. We came to live here permanently in 1990 and started renovating the farm into a complex of six apartments plus our own, which were finally completed around 1996. We have very much enjoyed our life in this peaceful retreat with the added pleasure of the social life with our guests during the season. What can I not live without ? - our dog, Muffin, who being a young labrador-cross keeps us on our toes ; walks in the country with same ;music, mainly classical but still a fan of the 60's and 70's rock and country ; books, mainly non-fiction ; good food of all kinds ; Burgundy wine ; good summer weather. Travel-wise, we have taken advantage of the quiet winter months, when not renovating, to travel extensively independently, with our old caravan and dog in Morocco (twice for 3 months), more recently to Syria (before the troubles) with our old cat, but mostly in Australia with our 4WD camper there, stopping off en-route to most of the Asian countries, on the last trip into China. As hosts we think we are pretty good, sociable yet discreet. Our guests enjoy the option of socialising with others or keeping to themselves.
