Holiday home with 2 bedrooms, large salon/kitchen 45m2, courtyard in the Morvan Natural Park. Available May to October or Winter/Christmas at special rates.
Moulins-Engilbert is a bustling little village with all amenties, cafés, banks, a very good supermarket with wonderful local cheeses in the cheese cabinet.

The house is in the village of Moulins-Engilbert which has all amenities within walking distance. There is a restaurant nearby. The house is quite basic in the Morvandelle style. There is a gas hob, a fridge/freezer, and the kitchen opens onto the large living room with a wood burning fire.

Have a good meal locally, drink in the cafés and there's no need to drive home, the house is right in the village.

Moulins-Engilbert is in the Park Natural of the Morvan/Parc Naturel du Morvan, there is a lot of wildlife, very big forests and mountains and endless hiking trails and pilgrims walks.

Many amazing Brocantes and Flee markets, bargains to be had. Lots of events in the summer and restaurants with good reputations.
The village has a market on the first Tuesday of each month and many local brocantes and antique fairs. There are two lakes a short drive away (Panciere and Lac du Setton). There are some interesting WWII French Resistance sites and a museum dedicated to this a drive away. One were you can visit an enclosure with wild boar (environ of Anost).

There is an old chateau ruin at the centre of the village.

The Morvan is full of wildlife. Really it is quite astonishing. The local farms raise the famous white charolais cattle.
The local produce such as the cheese and the honey in our opinion is the best.

If you are the sort that likes camping, hiking, nature, picnics and so on, you will enjoy it.

The house is naturally cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
The forests here are endless and there are many trails that you can follow, also pilgrim routes that cut deep into the earth.
Places we suggest visiting are; Vezelay, St Honoré les Bains, Saulieu, Bribracte,Larochemiller, there are museums at Chateau Chinon and Autun. Autun is a big town with a Cathedral and quite beautiful. We often go the old Roman temple of Janus for a picnice. It is a Roman city.

By the way if you do not know, the church at Vezelay is amazing and has a masterpiece of medieval art on its Portal.

Of course you could also visit Beaune and the route de Grande Cru and pop in and buy a bottle or two of Bourgogne wine, which is really quite good.

Also there are not really night clubs and massive parties and that kind of thing but the village has alot of cafés and they get quite crowded in the summer and they are fun.

Local map and list of attractions will be supplied, this FB page is quite new and is being updated all the time.

High quality linen provided but not towels.
Ancient little courtyard directly outside the back door. Secluded mature garden a short private walk behind the house. Wood fired heating/wood provided.

Local Area

Our town is very pretty and the Morvan is known as one of the most beautiful parks in France. We are situated within one of the French national parks. Wildlife is great, as are the views. So good for biking. This is a quiet peaceful place with lots of space but bustling on market days and local events of which there are many in the summer; musical performances, theatre. A bike hire shop 'Outfitting' has just opened in the town.
