The
Experience

Refinement, loving care and high craftsmanship: you are welcomed to this exquisite home by Julien, a gentle soul now at the helm, whose parents breathed new life into this lovely old manor house. Myriad auctions were combed for fine rugs, antique mirrors, modern paintings, piano; you’ll find thick curtains, pretty desks, carved armoires and soft sofas in vast pale-walled bedrooms and deluxe bathrooms. The garden is a marvel, the half-wheel potager is especially breathtaking. You’ll eat well too – big breakfasts of baguette and granary bread, homemade jams, juice, different kinds of charcuterie from the Haut-Doubs area, a cheese platter with perhaps local Comté, Morbier and Roucoulons, croissants and eggs. Tasty table d’hote as well with herbs from the garden – all prepared by Julien, who has also opened a small bar in the sleepy village. Marnay is the nearest town (four kilometres), where you can buy local produce at a good epicerie – great for picnics. Besancon is a 30-minute drive – you can visit the cathedral with its unique 70-­dial astronomical clock and there are heaps of fine restaurants.

Reviews

Julien provides a warm welcome to this beautiful Baronial House and is breathing new life into it while respecting its immense heritage. Masses of character and history are coupled with great food (Breakfast & Evening Meal). In the evening, the wonderful garden even included visiting entertainment (a band) which proved very enjoyable. We stayed for 2 nights and took the opportunity to explore nearby Besancon which is marvelous. It was our first visit but we are already looking forward to our next and will then explore Dijon.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Julien Lego-Deiber

  • The Egrignes is located in the Haute-Saône valley, in the countryside. It can be quiet but it also has many activities are on offer!
  • For nature lovers, there are many hiking trails available. The Monts de Gy offer wild orchids in spring, stags in autumn. You can also cross the "Camino" of Compostela and Via Francigena, two mystical routes ...
  • By bike, pedal quietly on the Chemin Vert, which connects the Véloroute V 50. For mountain bikers go to the trial tracks of Tour de Scay.
  • Les Egrignes is the ideal place to recharge your batteries while visiting various places of interest such as the Saline-Royal of Arc et Senans, the Jura vineyards, the village of Pesmes (a place that is named one of the most beautiful villages in France).
  • You must see the abbey Cistercian of Acey, castles... but also Besançon, which is listed as a world heritage site of UNESO with its famous citadel!
