You can visit a market every day of the week. We specially like the cosy Beaune Saturday morning and Chalon sur Saone on Sunday morning. Unique is the early Monday morning market in Louhans, where there is livestock and the famous Bresse chicken.
Wine lovers heat your heart out! Lots to visit and taste of course! Many of the large wine houses can be visited, for example Pommard (red) and Meusault (white). In most villages you will find a cellar to visit, or see the wine farmers about their daily chores in the fields. At the house are introductions to our neighbours, Mrs Berbezy for red, and Bernard Royet for whites and wonderful Cremants ( the local champagne)
At less than 30km from us there are 4 golf courses: Montchanin 18 holes, Levernois 18 holes, Chalon 18 holes en Autun 12 holes.
Our neighbours run a equestrian centre ' le chante renards'. Hacking is possible with their horses as from 40 euros the hour.
The area around Montdulievre is hilly, from here you walk straight into the vineyards with magnificent views of rolling country.
We have lamas at the house, we can organize a walk with them.
Also for children there are several activities such as Arboretum in Givry at 15minutes drive, to swing from tree top to tree top, the pools and sailing lake at Autun, and the summer slide, steam train and carting at le Creusot.
The voie Verte is just in the valley, at the capitanerie of St leger sur Dheune you can rent bicycles for a stroll along the canal
Last but not least is Couches castle, just reopened with new owners at only 5 minute drive, making a must see place for young and old. If you wish you can book a wine tasting after the visit.
We live in the house next door, and will be your guide in the area. Of course if you just want to lie in your deck chair and enjoy the view with a glass of wine that is also possible.
