The Burgundy region
Saône-et-Loire is the seventh largest department of France and the most densely populated in the region of Bourgogne. In the west the department is composed of the hills of the Autunois, the region around Autun, of the Charollais and of the Mâconnais.
In the centre it is traversed from north to south by the Saône in its wide plain; the Saône is a tributary of the River Rhône that joins it at Lyon and thus is connected to the Mediterranean Sea. The Loire makes its way in the opposite direction, draining into the Atlantic Ocean.
The Canal du Centre links the Saône to the Loire between Chalon-sur-Saône and Digoin, thereby linking the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic ocean. In the east the department occupies the northern part of the plain of Bresse. In the west its industrial heart is in Le Creusot and Montceau-les-Mines.
Vergisson is a most beautiful village close to Macon in Southern Burgundy, one of the 5 villages within the famous Pouilly Fuisse Appellation. Enjoy the magnificent scenery and tranquillity that this region of France has to offer.
With Macon Loche TGV station only 10 mins away and quick access to the Paris/Lyon A6 motorway access could not be better. The airports of Lyon and Geneva are only 40 mins & 1hr 30 mins respectively. Wine enthusiasts and walkers will very quickly fall in love with these properties and this area.
The vineyard is BIO DYNAMIC and produces white Burgundy of the highest quality. Our producer Roger SAUMAIZE was recently voted 2nd top grower in the whole of Burgundy. The villages of Pierreclos , Fuisse , St Veran and Solutre are a short drive away as are the Cru Beaujolais villages of St Amour , Fleurie and Julienas. Every village has its own delightful restaurant. Enjoy some horse riding , golf nearby with extensive walks throughout the whole area.

"Wonderful property in picturesque setting in Burgundy"
In August, 2014 we spent a week in this beautiful house just outside the village of Vergisson in Burgundy. The property is spacious, decorated tastefully and completely equipped, nothing to wish for really. Large swimming pool. The scenery is enchanting and so is the view from the porch. We used the porch as second living room, to lounge, dine and enjoy the setting. Great walks directly from our doorstep, such as to the Roche Solutré, a prehistorical site with an interesting museum. Kind concierges: excellent service and quick response to our questions. One cannot ask for anything more. We felt at home and will certainly come back!

"Great villa in a superb setting"
La Roche is part of a very well thought out conversion into three separate villas, La Roche being the largest, Vergecosse being the generic for all three - it would have been helpful if so listed und… More

"Superb property in unspoilt rural burgundy"
We stayed for 10 days at Vergecosse with friends and family. The house was in excellent repair and tastefully decorated. All rooms had good quality furniture and bathrooms and kitchen were very well equipped. Outside amenities were super with lovely shared pool (neighbours very friendly) with table tennis and boules for guest use. Village very quiet with the local and only bar/restaurant/depot de pain proving to be sweet and welcoming with good food.
Very good attentive service from the young couple acting as concierge who were on hand if anything needed to be done or provided.
Plenty of good walking and cycling routes around the area and lots of lovely villages to visit and sample the local wines. Although super wine from Vergecosse vines available in the property to sample. Would go back tomorrow!!!

The best property we have ever rented. High class building with an astonishing view from the large porch over the valley between the cliffs of Solutrée and Vergisson. Ample equipment in perfect condition. Lovely heated pool. Friendly and helpful service.
You are in an exciting wine area. We can recommend the two Saumaize vintners for their Pouilly Fuissé, but don´t miss the northern Beaujolais with its crus. Here are young vintners successfully on their way to remove the devastating nouveau mark from the appellation. For instance Jean Foillard, Marcel Lapierre, Julie Balagny and many more.

"A quite outstanding gite"
We hired la Roche and its two sister properties for all our family for a week across our son's wedding at nearby Pierreclos. The properties are equipped to an extraordinarily high standard and l… More
