The Bresse plain is set between the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté regions. It is essentially farmland, characterised by its housing in the form of farms, dotted throughout the countryside or grouped in hamlets.
The department, bordered by the Saône and Rhône rivers, is in an excellent geographical location. This property is but 10 minutes away from Georges-Blanc’s famous gastronomic restaurant. Mâcon with its TGV train station is a 20-minute car drive away. Lyon and St-Exupéry airport are an hour’s drive away whilst Geneva, with its airport, is less than 2 hours away by car or 1¼ hours away by train. The A6 motorway runs through the Saône Valley whilst the A40 motorway crosses the department going towards the Alps, Italy and Switzerland.
The typical Bresse style farmhouse
The main section of this typical Bresse farmhouse, composed of several adjoining buildings, is characterised by its length and its overhanging roof, supported by a series of wooden pillars. The general layout is an L-shape which corresponds to an age-old and almost systematic organisation when farmers’ lives required three types of constructions: the “house” they lived in, the “barns and storage areas” used for harvests and the “line of farm buildings” forming cowsheds for the animals. Completely renovated, all these buildings now form a very large house, spanning approx. 450 m². They are topped with gable roofs. The attic space above the main house has been converted.
The swimming pool
The south-facing swimming pool receives copious amounts of sunlight. Out of sight of onlookers, it is surrounded by a wide paved terrace. A small stone outbuilding adjoining the house is home to the filtration system and is used for storing the garden furniture.
Local produce makes Bresse one of the leading gastronomic regions of France. Its flat landscapes exude a certain opulence. This was perhaps already the case when the kings of France snatched it from the family of Savoy where one of its burial sites is preserved. Bresse farms are so distinctive that they are an ethnographic curiosity. They have to have an awning created by the overhang of the roof, supported by a truss beam and solid wooden posts, as is the case here.
But such stylistic authenticity does not prevent interior comfort courtesy of full renovation works. A large family would be totally at ease here. The peace and quiet of the premises have a holiday air. But the Bresse area is in such a good geographical location, with such a good communications network, that this property could be lived in all year round.
