The water mill dates from 1640 and was built on the foundations of a Roman temple. It is set on the borders of the River La Bourbince next to the Canal du Centre. It is rural, but not 'in the middle of nowhere' here. The property is 1 hectare and is divided by the river, which has 4 water falls, and is suitable to splash around in, even by small children (supervised). In the 'trou du Moulin' you can ecen swim. With an inflatable boat it is possible to paddle on the river in either direction, and fishing is also possible. We've got bikes to cycle alongside the river or on the 'voie verte'. On walking distance there is a 'plan d'eau', an artificial lake with swimming possibilities. On request we can organise an adverture hunt or fossil hunt, interesting for all ages. The walled front garden has a carousel, a rocking cow, a playhouse made of an old wine vessel and swings. In the evenings you can make a camp fire (ample wood around). In town on 2 km there are 2 shops. Forget the food you're used to - there are plenty of other things to eat!
Make a day trip to one of the old towns including Chalon-sur Saône, Cluny, Autun, Macon and Beaune with its world famous hospice. Burgundy is famous for its wine and delicious quisine. We can recommend many reasonably priced and slightly more expensice restaurants. Don't miss the Mont Saint Vincent, the highest point of the region with an orientation table. On a clear day you can even see the Mont Blanc and the Puy de Dôme. If you look us up on google-maps, you will see a white V in the river. On one side is the house, and the property on the other side: this can be your next holiday destination! Prices depend on the number of guests.

Restaurants, food & wine

Burgundy is a paradise for wine lovers. There are many wine houses you can visit, from Beaune to beyond Macon. To name a few: Pommard, Meursault, Clos Vougeot, Saint Vérand, Chablis, Pouilly Fuissé and Saint Amour. There are several wine routes near Beaune, near Givry and alongside the Côte Chalonnaise, Macon and Beaujolais. But for food lovers Burgundy has a lot to offer. The food is honest and delicious. Escargots, oeufs en meurette (eggs in red wine sauce), chicken in cream from the Bresse, boeuf bourguignon made of beef from the white Charollais cow and so on. We know many very affordable restaurants and those with Michelin stars.


Go swimming in the river next to the house or in the 'plan d'eau' on 5 minutes walk. Take a walk or a bike ride directly from the gite (bikes at your disposal). For golf and horse riding you need to take the car. People who are intereste in the Roman history can visit Bibracte and Autun. The Roche Solutré is also a great archeological site. There are caves in Azé and Blanot. For children there is Divertiparc, where you will find all sorts of outdoor activities. Somewhat further is Bibracte, the museum of Celtic civilization.
