Make A Holiday Rental Villa in Saulieu, France, Your Home Away From Home

The market town of Saulieu is set in the Morvan forest, in the Burgundy region of France. Whilst there are a number of hotels available in the immediate area, by far the best choice of accommodation is to take a holiday rental house in Saulieu. This way, you can dictate the pace of your own holiday, whilst relaxing in surroundings that will make you feel as though you are staying in a home away from home. The self catering accommodation in Saulieu is all nicely furnished and decorated, and comes with all the mod cons that make life easy.

Things to Do on Holiday in Saulieu, France

The great outdoors is a big draw card for those people considering a holiday in Saulieu, and there are many activities that you can enjoy there. A walk through the forested areas can be taken on a daily basis, as can short cycle rides. With rivers and lakes all within easy access, you may also soon find yourself canoeing, fishing or even water-skiing! Other activities that you could try include golf and horse back riding.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Saulieu, France

The town of Saulieu itself has a number of interesting things to see and visit, such as a Romanesque church, a museum and several local landmarks. There is also a three star Michelin restaurant, although you can pay upwards of 200 Euros a meal! Further afield, try visiting Dijon or Montbard, which are towns with their own unique features. For something a little different, why not also visit a vineyard and take a tour. At the end of it, you could buy a bottle or two, and enjoy them later back at your holiday rental house in Saulieu.

Weather in Saulieu, France

The weather that you can expect on any holiday is almost as important as the destination itself. For the very best weather, you should consider renting self catering accommodation in Saulieu from late Spring through to early Autumn. The months of July and August are the peak months, and the temperature during this time can quite often reach 30 degrees Celsius. Rainfall is quite minimal as well. During the Winter, day time averages of 5 degrees are commonplace, and it does rain a little more. That said, no more than 70mm of rain falls on average per month.

Travel to Saulieu, France

Many people choose to drive to their self catering accommodation in Saulieu by arriving in Calais. This gives the use of a car during the vacation, but does also add on some travel time. For flying, you would probably need to use Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) at Paris, where flights arrive from London Heathrow (LHR) courtesy of British Airways. However, you would still then have over 200kms left to travel. Finally, the train is an option using the high speed TGV and regular service lines. If you are travelling from the south of England it might take less than five hours.

Everything we needed was there, it all worked perfectly and there was comfortable seating in abundance. Having French and UK channels on the TV is handy as is the ample parking. Access to our various destinations was easy and almost all by beautiful and relatively quiet roads. Finding the property was very easy and the greeting we received was excellent. Bill and Jenny were most helpful with pre-trip communication, directions, introduction to the property and gentle advice and information regarding the area. Walks along the lane which leads out of the village provided magnificent views and a gentle and relaxing start and end to each day. Good shopping and major supermarkets are all available within 10 miles and a small supermarket (now an offshoot of Auchan) is a few miles away. Semur, Flavigny, Alesia, Ancy-Le-Franc, Noyers, Montréal, Chateauneuf-en-Auxios, Bussy-Rabutin and Avallon were favourite visits (there were other villages, towns and chateaux); but the countryside is perhaps the greatest star. A trip to the Morvan is always worth it as is a gentle drive with wanders through the local villages such as Genay, Époisses and Moutiers-St Jean. A fascinating trip is to the Vix Museum in Châtallon-sur-Seine and audio-guide a must. Above them all are Fontenay and Vézelay. We had good weather overall and while this helps any trip, having visited many of the above places before in dull and wet conditions, we can say that they look good then as well! This holiday was as good as it gets and with over 40 such stays in France we are happy to declare the gîte of the very best we have stayed in. Thanks again to Bill, Jenny and the girls for such a lovely place in which to stay.
