About us

Frans & Kitty

Welcome to Frans and Kitty Groot and our friend Mike, a 12 year old flatcoated retriever, in Usseau, about 10 minutes walk from the village of Lucenay L’Évèque in the Morvan, the green heart of Burgundy.

It has all gone from a silent dream wish to start a bed and breakfast to reality.

There was a feeling of ‘if we don’t do it now, we’ll never do it again’. And we don’t want to regret the things we didn’t do.

With a wish list that a house should meet, we set off for France. And our house was in between: La maison Usseau.

It was ‘un coup de coeur’: love at first sight.

In the meantime we have already had guests and what a pleasure it was for us. We loved making these people happy. And together over a drink to hear the stories about what they had experienced and to give information about the surroundings. The children and dogs also had a wonderful time. La Maison Usseau turns out to be suitable for one night and certainly for a longer stay. We hope to welcome you soon as well.

Would you like to enjoy the peace and quiet, the space, the unobstructed view and the walled garden with us? In a place where the children can have fun in the swimming pool or with the many toys. And then you will have a holiday too, right?

Dogs are also welcome.

Plenty of privacy, because you have the entire 1st floor with its own entrance at your disposal, without other guests.

Including breakfast of course. And the possibility (on request for 20 euro p.p., children up to 12 years 12,50 and very small children or children who eat very little for free) that there will be cooked a few times for you. Paleo, Keto or vegetarian is also possible.

Inside you can go to the conservatory where breakfast or dinner is served. Here you have a beautiful view of the walled garden and the hills of the Morvan. You can stay here and in the garden all day long. There is a well stocked fridge from which you can grab a glass of wine, beer or soda at friendly prices. In the freezer are also ice creams.

Our motto is ‘nothing must be done and (almost) everything is allowed.
