D & N Barbour
We fell in love with Burgundy during our travels through France in the 1990's. We have a special appreciation for the rich Celtic, Roman, and medieval history of the area. The wonderful bistros, restaurants, markets, and vineyards in this area fulfill our love of gourmet food and wine. Originally coming from a farm family, we particularly love the beauty of the Morvan Forest, the green pastures, and white Charolais cattle. Also, Burgundy reminds us of the slow, gracious pace of life in tune with country living, a feeling so much lost in the rat race of City life and unending work. Burgundy is the ultimate vacation area.
The whole country of France is wonderful. But, like the Three Bears of the fairy tale, we found the Dordogne too hot, Provence too crowded and Burgundy just right. We immediately loved the village, a charming, historical location which offered the quiet of the country and proximity to a city with full amenities, Autun, a non-touristic, authentic French city.
