VTWonen - September '08

Welcome at La Roseraie!

La Roseraie has been known as a hotel in Lucenay l’Évêque since 1856 and has been the center of the community. The house that had been empty for 23 years was completely renovated and turned into a very nice restaurant and chambres d’hotes (bed and breakfast) with private bathrooms in a french modern style. Each room with its distinct athmosphere and style.

From September 1st 2011 we, Ellen and Menno together with our son Yoshua (13 in 2021) are your hosts and we'll do our best to make your stay a pleasant and relaxed visit to Burgundy and the Morvan. Ellen and Menno have worked nearly all their lives in restaurants and hotels and Menno has worked as a professional photographer for many years.

La Roseraie is a splendid place to be yourself, whether you like peace and quiet, cosiness or activity. All 3 rooms are situated on the second floor so you can fully enjoy the views of the surrounding hills.

At the front of La Roseraie is the village Lucenay l’Évêque, a typical little Morvan village with a renovated square, the town hall, a church and a an astonishing amout of facilities for a mere 370 inhabitants. It has a grocery, pharmacy, little bar, two brocantes and some artisans among other things.

At the back of the house runs the river Ternin, a small but lovely water which attracts both painters, fishers as well as children who enjoy the water as their playground in the summer. Crossing the bridge over the river takes you straight into the woods of the national parc Morvan.  There is a tennis court only 200meters from La Roseraie that can be hired for a mere € 5,- per hour. The Morvan also offers walking trails, cycling and even climbing. And there are some lovely lakes like Lac de Pannecière (empty for renovation of the dam and with a spectacular landscape) and Lac de Settons, 20 minutes drive (for activities like sailing). Every Tuesday Eric and Rafaëla organize nearby a vegetable and fruit market of great diversity.

In our restaurant we will (for the season of 2021) only serve mails for guests that have a room on our house or in our gite. Other demands can be done in advance for a limited number of people. Fixed menu that will change every day.

Check out the actual openingtimes or activities in our Agenda.

Furthermore we offer a cozy library with wood-stove and a terrace in the garden where breakfast, lunch and dinner is served on beautiful days. And a fully equipped kitchen where cooking-workshops can be organized. From time to time we will organize evenings with music in the restaurant. See the Agenda.

Since spring 2013 we offer a small sauna for 2 which is located in the back of the garden.

It's possible to open the restaurant for groups and festivities (marriage,  baptism etc.)
