The French town of Montbard is situated within the Burgundy region, beside the main canal. With a beautiful town centre and access to close-by places of interest, a holiday in Montbard is suitable for those people that enjoy access to all a modern town has to offer, albeit with a French twist! Whilst there is hotel accommodation in the town, a holiday rental house in Montbard is a far better choice. More a home away from home, you will be able to dictate the pace of your vacation yourself, and escape the noise and bustle that a hotel never seems to be without.
There are many things to do during your holiday in Montbard town, and the canal may be a centre of some of them. Long, rambling walks along its edges can be alternated with meandering cycle rides if you so wish. You can even hire a boat for a day! Elsewhere in the surrounding area, you can play a round of golf, go swimming, try freshwater fishing and even go on horse riding treks.
Your holiday rental house in Montbard town is the perfect base from which to explore the area both near and far. Around the town itself are many attractions that can be visited. One is the Grande Forge foundry which has been reconstructed with a furnace and bellows powered by water. A nature park is also close by, and further afield, you could visit the Abbey de Fontenay, one of the region’s premier attractions. As the town is also on the TGV high speed train route, you could quite possibly take a day trip into Paris itself, and the hour long journey would prove to be most worthwhile.
The climate of Montbard can be described as one of cool Winters and warm Summers. July and August have the warmest day time average high temperatures of 25 degrees Celsius. Of course, there are some days which top this, and in August, 30 degrees for a few consecutive days is not unheard of. The Winter months see the temperature drop, with the coolest day time average lows being 4 degrees.
