La Vesvre is located just outside Epinac, halfway between Beaune, the wine capital of Burgundy and Autun, the roman capital of Gaulle.

Epinac is well served with local shops and bars, markets are held on Wednesday and Sunday mornings. I can personally recommend lunch at the bar de la place where your host Aline and John-Jaques offer home cooked food served with a friendly welcome.

Between La Vesvre and Epinac is the camping du pont vert, about ten minutes walk from the house, where you can spend an evening having a bite to eat or enjoy a glass of wine in this riverside location. Bicycle hire and Fishing is also available here.

Also worth a visit is the nearby Chateau de Sully.

Ten minutes drive from the house is the charming market town of Nolay, many activities take place here throughtout the summer.

In the heart of the Cozanne valley, the town of Nolay makes the transition between two different styles of the burgundian landscape: forests and prairies to the north and west ; hillside vineyards facing the slopes of Beaune to the east, and the Chalonnaise hills to the south.

A small mediaeval market town, Nolay, with its old neighbourhoods, a fourteenth century Central Market, wooden framed houses, Lazare Carnot’s birth house and museum of local history is a town worth exploring.

Autun is twenty minutes away, with it’s Roman amphitheatre, shops, bars, good restaurants and large market. There is an indoor/outdoor swimming pool and many leisure facilities.

Beaune is thirty minutes drive away, through famous wine villages Monthelie, Meursault, Volnay, and Pommard. Beaune, world famous for it’s rich history in wine producing and L’hôtel dieu. Many good restaurants and bars.

For the children there are two good theme parks, the smaller of the two is only forty minutes away at Le Creusot, well suited to younger children. The much larger, Le Pal, is 80 minutes drive and a full day can easily be spent here on the rides and strolling through the large park looking at the various animals.

Another good place to visit is the Morvan natural park, where Lac des Settons provides a wonderful backdrop to spend a day canoeing, fishing, or walking by the lakeside.
