Vézelay

Vézelay: its only name evokes a village crowned with a church – wonder of Romanesque art – classified world heritage by UNESCO.

It is one of the most beautiful villages in France, a sanctuary town, a delicious white wine, a departure for Saint Jacques de Compostela, a gateway to the Morvan Regional Nature Park and also an exceptionally preserved environment, with sublime landscapes and unsuspected treasures in the heart of each village.

A true place where you can stroll through the alleys, savor the local cuisine accompanied by a Burgundy Vézelay, walk the trails, go down the Cure by canoe, fly over the hills in a hot air balloon, take a cruise on the Canal du Nivernais, to botanize in nature, to be drunk with music … to live fully!
