The "Valeurs Parc naturel régional" quality mark reflects our DNA: respecting the environment and attention to biodiversity, promoting the local economy, respecting the cultural specificities of the region and an human approach.
Fields besides cattle breeding next to wild forests. Landscaped lakes alongside wild rivers. Roman past alongside heritage of the Gauls.
THE REAL FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE
A lot of rest, narrow roads, the sound of tractors and crowing roosters, waiting when a herd of cows is moved, grazing bulls where you dare to walk along, pitch black nights with sometimes the Milky way, the baker at 4 km and no public transport .
A FOCUS ON CULTURE & HISTORY?
There are several remains of the Gauls as the holy salt water sources near Vezelay, and the ancient town of Bibracte. Visiting Autun recalls the Roman way of living. The Basilica of Vezelay, the castle of Vauban, ... these are just a few examples of the cultural heritage in the neighbourhood. The Morvan knew very active resistance groups during World war II; local museums e.g in Dun-les-Places and Saint-Brisson highlight this period.
For each level of hiker, challenging hiking routes start from the gite. With two large lakes nearby (Lac de Setton, Lac de Chaumecon), numerous rivers and several fishing ponds, the region is a paradise for those who love fishing, rafting, kayaking, sailing or swimming. With multiple MTB trails that pass in front of the gite, mountain bikers feel in heaven. Finally, there are also facilities for quad riders and rock climbers.
Lighting the wood fire, walking in the snow, searching for traces in the snow, enjoying the quiet nature, the omnipresent Christmas trees make you looking forward to the Christmasparty.
AUTUMN AND SPRING
Warm sun-drenched days that forget the rain of the day, enjoy the beautiful colors of autumn, see the color coming back in the woods after a winter. Savor the smell of spring. Discover mushrooms everywhere.
Quacking frogs and deafening crickets, spotting badgers on our meadows at night, helping to take care of the sheep. In the villages there are weekly markets, flea markets, small-scale art exhibitions and festivals. In the gite is all information and an up-to-date agenda.
