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!

Places to holiday in Nievre, France

Nevers, Nievre’s capital city, is a magnificently quiet town, largely, and luckily, overlooked by the mass tourist industry. However, there are many places to visit, shops to browse and some excellent restaurants and cafes to frequent. When you arrive in Nevers, a great way to explore is by following the blue plaques around the town, which not only point you in the right direction of Nevers’ most interesting places, but also tells you a little about them.

Weather in Nievre, France

April until late October in Nievre is the best period to be in the department as the changing colours of the countryside make the department even more picturesque, and climatic conditions are ideal for walking. Temperatures average 26°C in July and August.

Flights to Nievre, France

Reaching a holiday rental in Nievre, France is easy. The Eurostar runs from London to Dijon in just six hours. Alternatively, you can get flights to Dijon Airport (DIJ).

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Mesves is a short, attractive stroll from the river Loire and a nice area for running/jogging if you are so inclined. Sandra at the local Bar is brilliant at coaxing you with your attempts at speaking French but will equally switch to English if you prefer. There is plenty to do and we certainly only touched on some. We would highly recommend La Tour de Pouilly-Fume with its multi-sensory show, aroma cave and, of course, the excellent wine tasting at the end. We would also recommend the walk starting from St. Pere Village (which has a great artisan oil and nut butter shop), to hilltop Vezelay. It is not too demanding, and lovely to discover lots of restaurants, boutiques, free wine tasting and the old Abbey when you get there. There are some stunning chateaux to visit in the area, but you will need to check opening times before you go. We had some great meals at reasonable prices. We tried Restaurant de L’hotel le Laurier at Saint- Satur (a mother/son team) where a 3 course evening meal was 25 Euros. We also had a very traditional 3 course lunch at Chez Memere in Pouilly for 15 euros. We also enjoyed buying from local markets and having supper in the garden. Overall a very relaxing stay that could easily become routine.

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!
