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!

The gite was well equipped and very clean, and the bed was comfortable. The weather was very wet with cool evenings. As a result we visited chateau etc rather than going walking in the rain, but we were warm at night thanks to the excellent wood burning stove.
