If you are tired of sharing the crowded English countryside with thousands of other walkers, all searching for peace and tranquillity why not consider Burgundy in eastern France? There are miles of deserted tracks and bridleways for you to explore and enjoy even in mid-summer.
The Burgundy Experience @ Chateau des Pommiers has put together a stimulating collection of short, 4 day or weekly walking breaks based at Chateau des Pommiers. They include, up to five walks of varying length and difficulty, wine tasting and visits to local sites of interest. For cyclists there are up to five routes all starting and finishing at Igé but taking in most of the Southern Burgundy region. All routes avoid main trunk roads wherever possible. In the evening you can eat at the Chateau or you can choose to visit any of the excellent local restaurants. Full details from email@example.com where we can tailor the holiday to suite you needs.
The region of Southern Burgundy offers a wealth of varied countryside. You may stroll or cycle through the wine growing region of the Maconnais or wander over the rolling country of the Charollais or Clunysois. To the south west of Macon there is the region around Matour and Tramayes which is known locally as "Little Switzerland." The walks and cycle routes around this region are a little more challenging but offer a wonderful variety in this rich and wooded terrain. We do offer off road-routes for the cyclists if you have the right equipment. Advice on what to bring is available.
All our routes, cycling or walking, are of medium grade and distance and offer superb vistas over the surrounding countryside, together with comfortable lunch stops either on the hills with a packed lunch or at a convenient Auberge. Detailed IGN derived route maps and explanatory notes, are provided for each route. Our guide Steve has almost 40 years experience of walking and cycling in the UK and Europe, which will ensure that you enjoy the best of the Burgundy countryside.
Whether you are a novice or experienced walker or cyclist we are confident that you will enjoy your stay with us.
