Vezelay, Burgundy, in heart of medieval village

Our gite is an ancient stone house at the heart of the mediaeval town of Vézelay, a centre of pilgrimage since the twelfth century and now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

It is surrounded by superb walking country as well as being ideally placed for touring Burgundy's 'green heart', the Morvan National Park.

The house dates back to the twelfth century and still has two large cellars from that time. It was reworked in the fifteenth and eighteenth centuries. From the terrace overlooking Place Borot there are views of the surrounding hillsides.

The accommodation is flexible, providing spacious living for individuals, couples, families or groups. ...Read more
