Ideally located in the hollow of the Mâconnais vineyards on the routes of the Romanesque churches circuit, the greenway, the mountain bike route referenced by the GTM (Grand Tour du Massif Sud Bourgogne) & the wine route. In the heart of Tournugeois-Clunisois (labeled "Pays d'Art & d'Histoire"), at the crossroads of Mâconnais & Charolais-Brionnais (labeled "Pays d'Art & d'Histoire"), splendid territories rich in unique heritage and sumptuous preserved landscapes between beautiful green valleys covered with meadows, wooded hills, bocages, vast forests and hillsides of vineyards. Prime location to shine throughout southern Burgundy: 24 km from the famous Roche de Solutré labeled "Grand Site de France", 26 km from Mâcon, 35 km from Tournus, 36 km from Charolles, 49 km from Chalon-sur -Saône and 50 km from Paray-le-Monial (& its famous basilica).

    Phénoménal et réconfortant!


    Ein Erlebnis in vielerlei Hinsicht: ein wunderbares Haus mit herrlichem Garten, den man benützen darf; ein Erlebnis, in einem Haus zu wohnen, dessen Kern 900 Jahre alt ist; und ein besonderes Erlebnis, den Hausherrn kennenzulernen, der zugleich Erforscher der mittelalterlichen Häuser von Cluny ist. Wir sind ungern wieder gefahren und werden nie ein schöneres Erlebnis bei Gîtes de France haben.
