Make A Holiday Rental House in Montmelard, France, Your Home Away From Home

If you are looking to take a vacation in the clean, green surroundings of the French countryside, then you should consider a holiday in Montmelard. A fifteen minute drive from the larger historic town of Cluny, a holiday rental house in Montmelard is the perfect place from which to explore the surrounding area, although it must be noted, that a car is almost essential in this respect. With a fully fitted kitchen, and all the mod cons that you could dream of, self catering accommodation in Montmelard, Burgundy, is more a home away from home.

Things to Do on Holiday in Montmelard, France

There are a wealth of activities that you can pursue during your holiday in Montmelard, and many of these can be done on the “La Voie Verte”. This is a 120 km long tarmaced path which follows disused railway and canal tow paths. It is especially suitable for walkers, cyclists, roller-bladers and even horse riders. Other activities in the area include fishing, golf and boating. For a full range of court games, head to either Cluny or Macon to use the sporting facilities there.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Montmelard, France

As well as pursuing activities during your holiday in Montmelard, you might also like to take one or two day trips in order to see what the area has to offer. There are a number of prehistoric caves that can be visited, and many of the finds from these are also housed in local museums. Other ideas for trips include visiting the town of Cluny with its Benedictine Abbey, and the incredibly beautiful La Clayette chateau. There are of, course, many more castles and attractions in the Burgundy region awaiting your discovery.

Weather in Montmelard, France

A holiday in Montmelard can be taken at any time of year, but it is important to be prepared for what the weather might have to offer you. If travelling there during the Summer months, expect day time average temperatures to measure in the mid-twenties degrees Celsius range. Rainfall is lessened during this time at barely 50mm per month. The Autumn period, which also coincides with the harvest season, can have quite temperamental weather, with storms, frosts, and heat waves all possible. The Winter months see temperatures drop, and snowfall is not uncommon during December and January. This is not necessarily a bad thing, and many people choose to book a holiday rental house in Montmelard over the cosy Christmas period.

Travel to Montmelard, France

The two obvious choices when it comes to travelling to the self catering accommodation in Montmelard are to drive or to fly. Driving does involve a greater degree of travel time, but has the greatly added benefit of being able to use the car once there. Calais is the most likely point of entry in this case. Flying, the other alternative, will most likely involve you landing at Lyon airport (LYS). There are regular flights into here from London Heathrow (LHR) on British Airways.

We thought that we had discovered Cold Comfort Farm. On entering the house we were totally surprised. A beautiful kitchen just as one would imagine to find in a Beaujolais farmhouse, fully equipped for cooking, eating and drinking. Views across the wide landscape to the hills beyond to be enjoyed from the window above the sink and outside of the backdoor are Rosemary, Fennel and other herbs. Moving into the sitting room we found a cosy room that shared an open log fire with the kitchen; plenty of logs in the adjacent barn if required. The house also had central heating so we didn’t actually need to light the fire. There is a beautiful bathroom downstairs and an even more beautiful bathroom upstairs that services two large and airy bedrooms, that also enjoy the view across the fields. A short drive into Monsols and a fine drive to La Clayette (not to be missed). There are good walks to be had all around and especially from the Col de Crie. The owners were extremely helpful and just a telephone call away. We cannot praise Les Jacquets high enough and would recommend it to anyone who would wish to have a very ‘French’ experience.

The house is attractively furnished, roomy and well equipped for around 6 people. However, because of the distribution of space, there is only one bedroom - which is particularly spacious and attractive - and it is hard to see where further people might sleep. It is a few miles from the nearest shops/activities so not for those who need a lot of distractions! It was ideal for what we needed - a get away from it all R & R. The owner lives on the site and was pleasant and helpful without being intrusive.
