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.

The property was exactly as described. The house was in an ideally tranquil setting near Mazille.

5 of 5
This is a superbly restored vineyard house complete with a huge barn displaying a wonderful old wine press. Although we were a party of 4 it could easily accommodate 8 people. The facilities were everything one needed within the house and the gardens were beautifully kept with flowers,fruit and tomatoes. The setting is tranquil yet not isolated as there are other properties beside it and a well-stocked village shop within walking distance or a 2 minute drive away. There's also a restaurant in the village and lots to choose from in the magnificent village of Cluny which only 10 minutes away. This house is a great base for anyone who wants to see places of interest in Burgundy such as the Abbey at Cluny, the incredible site of Solutre, the chateau at Cormatin, the Domains of Pouilly Fuisse or the very many other churches etc that abound in this region.Having holidayed in other properties in Burgundy we found this to be one of the best especially as our hosts Elsa and Gilles were not only helpful before our visit but during it as well. Their communication was prompt, informative and friendly. Although they don't live nearby arrangements are in place for assistance from a local farmer should it be needed. A thunderstorm knocked out the WiFi and once contacted Elsa immediately got it sorted thereby saving our sanity as all parents know this is a prerequisite for children whether on holiday or at home! When Elsa and Gilles visited at the weekend they were as charming as their emails had indicated inviting us for coffee in the garden and a friendly chat! We couldn't recommend this property highly enough and certainly hope to return.

A hidden jewel in the rural heartlands of France

5 of 5
With a storm brewing we pulled into the courtyard at Les Jacquets on a dark afternoon. 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.
