Close to the popular Cote d’Or Department town of Montbard is the smaller town of Braux. For those who want to have a relaxing and enjoyable time in the Burgundy region of France, a Braux holiday is the ideal solution. Not only will you be able to see some spectacular countryside views from the window of a Braux holiday rental house, you will also be ideally situated to head for more livelier climes should the mood take you.
With the town of Braux being relatively small, the emphasis of a trip here is rest and relaxation. A Braux holiday does offer the opportunity for visitors to enjoy a variety of pursuits both in and around the town. Amongst the activities available for visitors to indulge in are mountain biking, hiking, tennis, golf, swimming and horse riding.
If you have recharged your batteries in your comfortable Braux holiday rental house and want to spread your wings for the day, then you can take the 118 mile journey to the wonderful town of Bourges, which is the capital city of the neighbouring Cher Department. Bourges is home to many great historical attractions including the remains of the town’s Roman walls. Visitors will also be awestruck by the impressive Jacques Coeur’s Palace. Coeur was a powerful and successful merchant in the 15th century. In 1441 he decided to build a grand mansion in his home town of Bourges. The result is what visitors can see today!
Travellers also flock to the town to take in the marvellous Bourges Cathedral, which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992. The 12th century cathedral has impressive flying buttresses on the exterior, a simple double aisle in the interior and some beautiful sculpted scenes depicting important events in The Bible.
If reserving a Braux holiday rental house is dependent on the weather then you will be ecstatic to hear that you can expect to bask in warm summers but very cool winters. A Braux holiday is very popular during the months of July and August when the temperature during the day can reach a pleasant 26°C. The winter months of December and January see the daytime temperature fall to anywhere between 0° and 5°C. The annual rainfall amount for the town is 20 inches.
Travellers on a Braux holiday can arrive at Lyon Airport (LYS) which is approximately a journey time of two and a half hours from the town. Airlines that offer frequent, cheap flights to Lyon include Flybe, Air France, Swiss Air and British Airways. Passengers can depart the UK from numerous UK airports including Luton (LTN), Manchester (MAN), Edinburgh (EDI), Birmingham (BHX) and Cardiff (CWL).
