Enjoy in France!
The Morvan is a beautiful regional nature reserve in the middle of Burgundy. Just a few miles south-east of the centre of the Morvan, you’ll find the village of Anost , a village with approximately 700 inhabitants and 37 (!) hamlets. One of those hamlets, Bussy, is where you will find your gite, “Chez Wil”.
The gite has recently been completely renovated and has become lovely, comfortable and welcoming space. I took care to preserve some of the original elements, inside as well as outside. I’m sure you’ll love the old well in the house! The studio-type gite is equipped with a bathroom with shower, kitchen with microwave / oven, dining table and chairs, wood stove, double bed, sofa and Wi-Fi.
The views from the gite are stunning, it overlooks green fields (often dotted with white Charolais cattle) and the vast Morvan woods. Many a lovely hour can be spend enjoying the views, a good book in one hand and a good glass of Burgundy wine in the other.
You can also spend time touring the park and discover its great lakes and streams, beautiful hamlets, small villages with brocantes and markets, quiet roads and seemingly endless, beautiful fields and forests.
After your stay, I am sure you will say that you have enjoyed your (culinary) experiences as well as the peace and quiet that the Morvan has to offer.
Come and experience it, you are very welcome!

What to do?
Exploring the region of Anost is great fun. Several hiking trails start just a few meters from the gite and you can follow the trails for both short and long hikes. If you would like to explore a little further afield (and there is every reason to do so!), one of the things I can recommend is a trip to Autun, about 25 kilometres from Anost. It is a town that dates back to the Roman empire and boast quite a few remnants of that time. The old amphitheatre or the temple of Janus are some of the sights that are well worth a visit.
At the site of the museum and archaeological site of Mont Beuvray, about half an hour drive from Anost, you will find the remains of an ancient Celtic fortress. As the Mont Beuvray is one of the highest hills in the Morvan, the views over the surrounding area are fantastic.
Many people also know Vézelay, just over an hour away from Anost. It is especially known as a place of pilgrimage and for its ancient abbey, the Basilica of Vézelay, a building from the 11th century. There are also a number of very fine restaurants and lovely shops. As the basilica is built on a hill, the views over the surrounding area are great.
Burgundy is of course famous for its beautiful, well-balanced wines. There are numerous vineyards and wineries, but not in the Morvan itself! The soil lacks the essential amounts of lime, so the vines don’t grow very well over here.However, within an hour’s drive in any direction you’ll have no trouble finding the vineyards. There are a lot of wine routes you can follow (you’ll find some examples in the information basket in the gite). The beautiful town of Beaune and its surrounding vineyards are certainly worth visiting.
