Make a holiday rental home or villa in Nievre, France your home away from home

The department of Nievre, France, is a landlocked region in Burgundy. It is a delightfully peaceful, rural department loved by those who visit, especially for those who enjoy the great outdoors.

Things to do on holiday in Nievre, France

The Morvan Mountain Range in the east of the department is often cited as one of the most beautiful regions of France. Walkers flock to holiday rentals in Nievre for this very reason. Across the department, there is extensive walking, through forests, along river valleys, across limestone plateaux and up mountains, attracting those with a love of outdoor activities and the feel of fresh air in your lungs. If you visit the Morvan Mountains or take a Nievre holiday rental there, the small town of Chateau-Chinon is well worth a visit, for both the beautifully maintained fortifications and the Musee du Septennat, which is filled with French presidential memorabilia. Throughout the Nievre countryside are beautifully designed and build buildings which have often played an important part in the department’s history. The Cathedrale Saint-Cyr-et-Sainte-Julitte de Nevers, the Ducal Palace and the Church of Saint Etienne are all well worth visiting from a Nievre gite or villa. Nievre is famous for wine, especially white, and there are plenty of vineyards open for tours and wine tasting holidays. Being a rural department of France, Nievre is also home to a range of gastronomic delicacies, which are washed down perfectly with a glass of Burgundy!

                                                                                                      I can start by writing " oh la la" but that would be a lame cliche for this lovely 2 bed maison nestled in a tranquil laid back village on the Loire. The cottage and its surroundings arouses all of one's senses. My four day stay flew by with so much to explore around Mesves. Each day offered numerous activities; walks along the river close to the maison listening to bird chorus, cycling to La Charite Sur Loire, walking along pilgrim paths to a magnificent Abbey, crossing the river on picturesque iron bridge, cycling or water rafting along the river and cycling along Roman road to the world famous Sauvignon Blanc -Pouilley Fume, tasting wine at the vineyards, driving through break taking clean crisp air alongside vineyards from Pouilly to Sancerre. My biggest and best highlight was discovering one of the best Gardens in Europe. Be sure to pop into the Office de Tourism de Pouilly for the wine tours and wine tasting and tastes the various cakes in the Boulangeries at La Chariste. Landlady Madame Chapelow had mentioned that the Boulangerie at the bottom of the street is the best but if you ask me they are both equally unique and offer the finest cakes and pasteries. Each evening the cottage was a warm comfort for tired feet and senses and felt like coming home to relax. I could write and write but I leave you to go visit this lovely cottage in Mesves. I am definitely going back in the autumn when the nearby Château de Chaumont hosts the International Garden Festival, which it does every year. Photo below. This year's theme is the 7 Deadly sins and I bet one of the sin is Pouilly Fume🍷

It is an extraordinary place, and it felt totally like home! I wish we could have stayed much much longer! It is much more attractive than we could tell by the pics, the hosts were wonderful and so friendly, and we just had the best holiday there! Infact, I am sitting in a holiday let in Austria, wishing we were back there instead! Clamecy and Vezelay were very nice historical places to visit. Watch out in Vezelay, as my husband did a wine tasting and then bought a bottle after trying from a shop in the main tourist street, but when he opened the bottle at home, he is sure it was not the same wine! He paid 17 euro for it, and it was like a weak watery Italian wine and was tipped down the sink. another shop sold us Dijon mustard at 6,50 euro a jar that we later saw in the supermarket for only 1,50 euro! :/ (same brand!) If you are into wine tasting and want a great experience, go to Domaine Bersan , in Irancy! There are two with the SAME name opposite each other! The one we went to had a white manor house in a courtyard with an enormous Stone rock cellar system downstairs and was extraordinary, for both the wine and the cellar experience! Auxerre was also lovely and had great shopping! I would highly recommend staying in this Holiday let! I think it is possibly our most favourite holiday let ever! Thank you very much Patricia!
