Over a long historical period Travelers have always made a break in SAULIEU, halfway between PARIS and LYON on the Southern road to the French Riviera, and enjoyed its fine restaurants and hospitality.
The original Relay Inns and Coachouses are still here to remind us of this prestigious past. The Famous 3 star Restaurant “la Côte d'Or” originally founded by the famous French Chef 'Bernard Loiseau' is still going strong, and other restaurants alongside the main road carry on the tradition of French “Haute Cuisine”. In town a wide range of less expensive restaurants can be found too, table d'hôtes, café meals, with the very French 'Plat de jour' Inns, Grills, Italian Restaurants, Créperies and Salad bars.
These days, tourists, travelers, nature lovers, the “over stressed” from Cities, and International House-Hunters come here for longer periods, and are pleasantly surprised by this unpretentious and interesting Town. Walking towards the Town Centre, one passes the 12th Century Basilica “Saint Andoche “ and the lovely Museum named after “Francois Pompon”, a French Animal Sculpture Artist where a permanent exhibition of his work can be seen, along with local History and Traditions, Celtic Stones, Art Exhibitions and Bernard Loiseau's Moped !
Local shops display a fine wealth of French Traditions; The “Fromagerie” where the owners love to explain (and also usually let you taste) the merits of the local cheeses such as 'Epoisses' or the strong tasting goats cheese from a nearby mysteriously named Monastry 'La pierre qui vire” (which literally means 'the rock that moved' dating back from an old Celtic legend)
The famous Charolais Butcher, where a daily queue gathers, and some Parisians come to buy the best beef in France!
The wonderful bakers, chocolate and pastry specialties, the Italian flower shops, the fine food stores, the small but specialized wine cellar, the friendly grocers who still put your food in a bag for you, the café owners who love a chat, the oldest café in Burgundy 'Le Parisian' with its fine engraved windows, and its particularly interesting owner, the Post Office staff who still take the time of day to ask after the health of the elderly, and where everyone says 'bonjour and 'au revoir' upon entering and leaving, the huge “brocante” with a car-boot sale atmosphere “le Puces de Morvan”, the Chemists where attractive staff still actually smile, the Cinema created in renovated Religious buildings, the Pink Indoor Market Building and village square where there is always something going on (even a bear appearance recently), the Square where the Saturday Market takes place under the trees, and draws in crowds from all the surrounding villages to share a glass of Chablis, make this small town rather special and where one realizes perhaps that you can be very happy with a much easier lifestyle !
Saulieu hosts and welcomes lots of activities during the festive period too, and throughout the year such as the “Jounées Gourmandes du Grand Morvan” (A huge Gastronomique Food Fair, held every May) the famous CHAROLAIS cattle show, the 'Nuits Cajun' Music Festival, the Book Fair, the N6 road and Vintage Cars show, the 'Les Arts au Soleil' manifestation, various Artisanal Craft Fairs, Quad and Motorbike Rally organizations, and many more privately organized events.
It also has a riding school, a mountain bike centre, a campsite, open air swimming pool, tennis courts, sports centre and schools.
For long term stays, a very good Community Centre where you can sign up for free French Lessons, and join in with other pastimes to practice your French, such as Yoga, Drawing, Dancing, Basket weaving, Piano lessons, Patchwork quilt making, and where staff are always eager to help with any other sort of social problem concerning your family life.
A Hospital with most specialized services, and of course the usual Banks, Insurance Companies, Clothes,Shoe, Toy, and Hardware shops, and on it outskirts two hypermarkets, a railway station, and a small (but very discreet !) Industrial Estate.
SAULIEU, this meeting place which is hard to define! a lively village, an old small town in the middle of nowhere, a rural retreat, a holiday stop-over…?? Will probably be never too overcrowded, never too popular, will always have some houses that need their roofs redoing and their outside walls rendering, will never gain any awards for the “Prettiest French Village” But it is entire, true to itself, all or nothing, you will like or dislike it, stay forever or move on.
One thing is for sure, it has kept its local people, its normality, its life, its soul, its pleasant atmosphere, that very 'something special' ou “je ne sais quoi” that we seem to be losing contact with in these modern times.… And if, like me (I have lived in the area for the last 25 years) you are ready to contribute something of yourself to this wonderful area, you are most likely to be very welcomed, (whether you are Parisian, Dutch, German, Belge, Chinese, Australian , African, or whatever) you will be taken on face value and receive the bonus of a whole new lifestyle !

Saulieu

Well known for its famous Burgundy Wine Coast, the 'Côtes des Vins' – in the Côte d'Or Department, Burgundy claims a lesser known, but just as worthwhile treasure within its region.
Considered the “poorest” part of Burgundy for centuries, and looked down upon by its neighboring wine growers, due to its agricultural land, forests, small hamlets and farms. The Morvan has only become popular within the last 30 years. A popular Parisian week-end residence area, and discovered by the Dutch in the 70's, its population is now moving towards home seekers (French and International) searching for peaceful green areas within travelling distances to Major towns, and house prices that still remain attractive.
There was one even once a saying here “Mauvais Vent, Mauvais Gens”!! (which literally means bad weather, bad people) which kept alot of curious travelers away – and possibly other future industrialists or would be quick profit makers. For some though, this saying leads to a certain curiosity – why bad people ? and why bad weather ? True, we do usually have snow here in Winter (which is very easily coped with) and the Seasons are true seasons, no wishy washy all round sunshine, but no mistral winds either ! Over the years one learns that the 'Bad people' reputation is more or less due to the 'character' of the local people – which seem to reflect the Seasons. No in betweens, and the typical 'Morvandiaux' is not to be led by the nose, or told what to do ! (Let's not forget the heavy Resistance movement, present here during the Second World War)
Indeed, and possibly for the same reasons, Morvan's nature has been preserved. The implantation of the Morvan Nature Parc in Saint Brisson (58 Nievre) today helps to keep it that way. For example, the plan to cut down all the hedges, to facilitate field management was refused here in the 1980's.
Morvans boundaries are defined by the presence of Granite rock, (like in Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Brittany) and certainly gives it that Celtic Atmosphere. A land of legends and mystery with ancient Menhirs and Dolmens – It even has (or had) its very own language, and Traditional Folk music.
It is in the middle of the Four French departments:
The YONNE, with its Capital “Auxerre” Avallon and the 'Vallée du Cousin' or Eternal Colline and Vezelay Cathedrale a starting point for the 'Chemin de Saint Jacques Compostelle'
NIEVRE, with its Capital “Nevers” and wonderful Lakes (for fishing, boating and bathing – most with artificial 'beaches') Pannecière, Settons, St Agnan, Crescent, the highest point Mont Beuvray at 821m with its Gaulish Town 'Bibracte,' and the Thermal station in Saint Honore les Bains.
SAONE et LOIRE with its Capital “Mâcon” The Medieval Cathedral Town of Autun, and quant villages surrounded by rolling hill countryside, such as Lucenay L'Eveque, Cussy en Morvan, and Tavernay.
And of course the COTE d'OR , with its Capital “Dijon” and Wine Coast, Saulieu with its Basilica, gastronomy and history – the Chamboux leisure Lake, and beautiful villages along the Tille such as Précy sous Thil and the Motte Ternant.

Like the Granite rock it stands upon, the Morvan is ancient and sturdy, a great (and still safe place !) to live with varied landscapes and homes to suit every need !
