Domaine du Vernay, Burgundy, France
Guest House on Independent Walking Holiday in France
The Domaine du Vernay in the southern Burgundy is one of our guest houses on our independent walking holiday in France: Secret Burgundy - Chardonnay Vines & Historic Villages
This former vineyard is located just outside the historic village of Mazille, near Cluny in the rolling hills of the southern Burgundy. Dating from 1769, the property produced wines up until the 1950's, although the character of the buildings remain unchanged to the present day. Today Laurence and Christian will welcome you to their historic property which has been restored to provide modern comfortable accommodation and make your stay extra special.
The Domaine du Vernay has 5 large and comfortable rooms, all ensuite, with lovely views over the surrounding countryside. Downstairs there is a large common room which is used as the dining area, but also for relaxing. This beautiful room has large flagstones and a great open fire. A large fully enclosed courtyard and garden provide a wonderful quiet place to relax after a day's walking.
The village of Mazille in the southern Burgundy sits around the end of a small ridge overlooking the valley. On top of the hill sits a monks priory which belonged to the Abbey at Cluny, whilst below the village in an isolated setting, sits the Roman church of Saint Blaise dating from the 11th century.
On your self-guided or independent walking holiday in Burgundy you'll arrive at the guest house from Cluny, the main historic local centre with its abbey founded in 910 which was at the time the biggest in the Christian world and which influenced building architecture across many countries. The walk passes over the hills to the west of Cluny before descending to Mazille. After your stay, you'll follow a ridge to the south to Tramayes.
"Laurence was very welcoming despite us arriving almost 2 hours early! Beautiful property." P & M Ashton
