    Description
    We now have the internet! La Maison du Curé was built in 1823 and was the house of the priests of Cormatin. It has been skillfully transformed into a superb holiday cottage. Upstairs the cottage has three bedrooms, all with washbasins. Sheets and towels are provided and there are plenty of spares in the linen cupboard. There is a bath with shower, and a separate WC. Another shower room and WC is just off the hall downstairs. Also downstairs is a large sitting room with flat screen TV with satellite channels, and DVD player. The dining room seats six and leads into a modern fully equipped kitchen. Out through the back is the terrace and garden, all completely private and surrounded by a hedge. In the garage you can play table tennis and there are five bikes to borrow. La Maison du Curé is just off the main street of Cormatin and it is a short walk to the two boulangeries and the shops. There is a tabac, post office and grocer's as well as a craft centre housed in the old spinning mill by the river. Here you can buy local gourmet foods and the work of the many local artists and craftsmen. There is a selection of good eating places in Cormatin, plus several bars and a homemade pizza café. Cormatin is especially renowned for its Louis XIII château with its original decoration and fabulous gardens. Many people find Cormatin an ideal base for visiting Taizé, the Christian centre, which is five minutes away by car. Young people attend from all over the world for teaching and prayer. The monks hold three Church services a day and all visitors are given a warm welcome. 10km to the south is the famous Abbey town of Cluny. In medieval times Cluny Abbey was the centre of religion in Europe until the Pope moved to St Peter’s in Rome. Although the Abbey was largely destroyed after the Revolution it is still easy to see how impressive it was.. Due to the influence of Cluny on the area, most of the villages have beautiful Romanesque churches. The one at Brancion, near Tournus, is particularly interesting, and it affords a beautiful view over the Grosne Valley. There is also a 10th century military castle and medieval streets. Cormatin is central to the three large towns in South Burgundy, Chalon, Mâcon and Tournus. All have intriguing medieval centres and awe inspiring Abbeys. Cormatin is central to the three wine growing areas of Burgundy. To the south is Beaujolais, to the south east are the Maconnaise vineyards, and going north you can follow the wine route past Beaune up to Dijon, visiting the grand cru vineyards of Clos-Vougeot, Pommard and Nuits-St-Georges. Cormatin is on the Voie Verte, a wonderful cycle track following the old railway and canal tow paths. It runs the length of southern Burgundy and provides easy cycling. There is also a network of signposted routes through the forests and vineyards, providing breath-taking views over the countryside. For five weeks in the summer Cormatin plays host to a series of concerts and operas, held in the Chateau theatres. There is also a Guitar festival in August and many musical events are held in the Romanesque churches of the local villages. Saône-et-Loire is famous for its lively markets. There is the Saturday market in Cluny which is regularly attended by the locals. The Sunday market at Chalon is well worth a visit too. Charolles and St Christopher-en-Brionnais hold cattle markets and you can admire the Charolais, the best beef cattle in France. Cormatin is a magnet for fans of Alphonse Lamartine, the French romantic poet and politician. He was born in Mâcon where there is a museum devoted to his work. Near Cormatin is the château at Milly-Lamartine where he spent his young life. You can follow the Lamartine trail from Cormatin to Milly, St Point and Monceau. Burgundy is known as â le pays du bien vivre . Escargot, beouf bourgogne and coq au vin are local dishes to this area and are often a dish of the day at local restaurants. Burgundy is also know for fine drinking, and you can enjoy wine tasting, following the wine routes which take you through the famous vineyards of the region. Cormatin has an outlet where you can taste before choosing from an impressive selection of local wines.

    Owner Info
    Vacation Rental Property Owner's Picture
    Owner Profile:
    Hello. My name is Julian and here's a little information about myself. I was born in Central Florida and have lived here most of my life. I've spent many years both travelling and studying abroad, but always return to the lovely surroundings of Central Florida.
    Why the Owner Chose Cormatin, Bourgogne:
    The Timucua and the Calusa were the earliest known inhabitants of the land that would become Winter Haven. Both of these groups were deeply impacted by war and disease from the Spanish conquest of Florida in the early 1500s. The Timucua were particularly affected by the expedition of Hernando de Soto. By the 19th century, both these groups no longer existed. During these expeditions the Spanish explorers claimed the entire peninsula of Florida for the Spanish monarchy
