Arnay-le-Duc Property Listings and Info

For buying and selling property in Arnay-le-Duc

A true taste of Burgundy

Much of Burgundy remains largely undiscovered and unhailed by British property buyers, and the lovely town of Arnay-le-Duc is no exception. Situated as it is to the west of its department's major cities of Beaune and Dijon, it is easy to miss out if you are following the wine trail, or the gastronomic route through this famously 'tasty' part of France. It would, however, be a great mistake to do so. The town is quite delightful, with a charming mediaeval centre, and consists of some intriguing ancient streets and pretty houses.

Superb cuisine and wines

The restaurants in the town are superb, and there can be few better places to sample the world famous cuisine and wines of the region. Some of France's finest wines are produced close to Arnay-le-Duc, so why not enjoy one of these alongside a regional dish such as Coq au Vin, or the region's flagship speciality, Beouf Bourguignon.

Something for everyone

Arnay-le-Duc has something to offer everyone, no matter what their tastes and interests, and the town is also proud of the fact that it is now fully accessible to handicapped people, so no one needs miss out on its pleasures. Places to visit include The Princes' de Condé Château, the Church of St Laurent, the Mette Forte Tower, the town mansion or the 'Maison Bourgogne' and a fascinating museum celebrating the 'Arts of the Table'!

Superb facilities at Lake Fouché

Set in the lovely Burgundy countryside just outside the town is a large leisure lake, Lake Fouché. There are lifeguards on duty in the summer months, so the whole family can swim with complete peace of mind. There is a great play area for young children, with water slides as well as many sports on offer including fishing, sailing, pedallo boating, hiking and cycling.

Events galore

There are also many festivals and sporting events which take place in or near to Arnay. You can enjoy watching cycle racing and triathlon events, or perhaps attend art exhibitions. In the summer there are regular evening events held every Thursday in July and August where there are arts and crafts, regional products to try and buy, and music and dancing.

How to get there

Getting to Burgundy is not difficult, although it is not as well served by air travel from the UK as some parts of France. To fly you must change at Paris, as the airport at Dijon does not have any services direct from the UK. TGV travel is another option, as Dijon is on the TGV network, and driving is easy as Arnay lies just off the A6 motorway.

Property prices and availability in and around Arnay-le-Duc

The region is so little known by British buyers that it really does present a fantastic opportunity to invest in excellent property at bargain prices. Quality is the byword for the region in terms of food and drink, and property is no exception to this rule. If you are seeking the ideal country property to renovate, you would be very well advised to look around Arnay-le-Duc… and be quick, before someone else discovers it!

your comments...

1. A comment from a visitor to the site (added 7/9/10)...

I must commend you on your description of Arnay-le-Duc because it sums up the appeal and distinct character of the town beautifully. We own a house in the town which we bought six years ago. It wasn't by any means in the state of dilapidation of much French property, but required some modernisation and decoration. We love this particular part of the Cote d'Or and plan to retire there, if possible one day.

Arnay has what a good friend of ours refers to as 'shabby chic', which is in direct contrast to the immaculately presented villages found along the Cotes du Nuits for example. What you get in Arnay is unspoilt and natural. It's Burgundy without the pretence of some of the wine growing towns close by.

We travelled across France for many years before deciding that this was where we should buy a house. I really think that Burgundy chose us, rather than the other way around because its flavours, idiosyncracies and way of life have found their way into our hearts which is enduring.

One of the most enchanting things about Arnay in particular and the region more generally, is the lack of English expatriates, such as you find in Provence, Dordogne or Brittany for example. I realise that promoting the appeal of Arnay-le-Duc in this way might hasten change in this regard, but I thought that I'd comment anyway!
