The Local Area

The house is near to dense forest and is surrounded by rolling pastures and vineyards.   Southern Burgundy provides a most harmonious setting for both open space and a diversity of landscapes.   Here you're able to enjoy a wide range of walking, cycling and horse riding on numerous marked trails.   Excursions on the "Voie Verte", which is a disused railway line and now a footpath, are possible either on foot or with a bicycle or roller skates.   Four adult bicycles and helmets are available to borrow.

Human settlement in Southern Burgundy has made an impact for thousands of years.   It all got started along the banks of the Saône River between the Solutré escarpment and the Azé Caves.   Man discovered a land conducive for physical and spiritual growth and a place for basing activities.   Celtic settlements like Bibracte were founded, followed by Gallo-Roman cities led by Autun.   Centuries later, the shaping force would be guided by the Cluny-centred Romanesque architecture following the founding of the abbey in 910AD.

Cluny is about 15 minutes drive South, the famous abbey was the largest church in the world for over five hundred years until St Peters in Rome was completed in 1626 and then the Romans had to ask their architect to stretch it a bit.   Cluny is now also famous for its stud farm and equestrian centre. It has a good range of shops and supermarkets as well as over 15 restaurants (a favourite of ours is the 'Brasserie du Nord' in the Place de l'Abbaye).

There is also a Saturday street market, swimming lido and tennis club (with indoor court).
