The Burgundy region
The region offers something for everyone and is an ideal base from which you can explore the area, whether you are a cyclist, canoeist, bird watcher, wine lover, or you just want to relax and unwind in calm and beautiful surroundings .
Local attractions include
St Fargeau, with its famous Chateau and grounds, where during the summer there is a wonderful open air Son et Lumiere extravaganza.
Guedelon, is a fascinating project, it is a reconstruction of a Chateau built in the 13th century using only authentic methods and materials.
Vezelay is found high on a hill, its beautiful citadel and is the starting point for the pilgrims walk to Compostella in Northern Spain. It is surrounded by a medieval village with fabulous views of the surrounding countryside.
Historical Avallon is also within an hour's drive.
The Morvan national park, offers beautiful lakes and woodland walks, water activities and much more.
Sancerre offers great views over its vineyards and is well worth a visit and maybe a spot of lunch in the village square.
Vineyards, for wine lovers there are several excellent wine producers in the area. These include Sancerre, Pouilly sur Loire, Irancy, Chablis and Cotes d' Auxerre.
Le Petit Repos is situated in the village of Chateau du Bois, which is 18 kms from the medieval town of Clamecy situated on the Nivernais canal. The area has many canals and waterways where you can hire boats/canoes, or you can stroll or cycle along the towpaths.

"A little gem in beautiful countryside"
This little gite was a charming place to 'get away from it all'. Decorated with thought for travellers, it offered a comfortable respite from cities and generally rushing around... so, perfect for country rambles. It was further from tourist spots than I had thought, but during my time there I explored the surrounding villages and practised my driving 'on the wrong side of the road'! The pool is a real bonus. The hosts are generous with their time and information.

"A gem of a place!"
We loved staying in this very cute gite! The swimming pool is such a luxury and provided a lovely haven at the end of a long day cycling or sightseeing. Or wine tasting! Welcoming owners, who strike just the right balance. We had absolute privacy even though they live opposite, yet they were available for any questions we had.

"More than lived up to our expectations"
Paul and Linda are a lovely welcoming couple, always on hand to give useful recommendations of places to visit and eat. They have created a cosy, comfortable gite in the grounds of their delightful home and the indoor heated swimming pool added a touch of luxury. On arrival the gite was clean and very presentable, the shower room is good, the kitchen is adequate with plenty of crockery and china and yes the staircase is steep but plans are underway to change this. However, this would not put us off from re-visiting!
