Beautifully renovated, with a large terrace with a unique view over the valley, two bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom, the house is located in Flavigny-Sur-Ozerain, one of the most beautiful villages in France, in a fully classified site
The vaults that adorn one of its rooms, as well as some of its walls more than a metre thick, bear witness to a distant past
From the terrace with a panoramic view, you can see the site of the battle of Alesia between Caesar and Vercingetorix
The house is part of a unique architectural ensemble in this medieval village with picturesque lanes lined with hollyhocks. Wandering through these winding streets and imposing ramparts, with breathtaking views over the surrounding valleys, is an enchantment for the eyes but also for the nostrils, tickled by the smell of aniseed distilled by the Fabrique des Anis de Flavigny located in the former Abbaye Saint-Pierre
From the beginning of December to mid-January, an exhibition of nativity scenes in the windows of the medieval houses gives the village a magical Christmas atmosphere and transports the walker out of time. In addition to guided tours of the village and the Carolingian crypt of St. Peter's Abbey, you can enter the church of St. Genest to admire the magnificent stalls and the smiling angel with his sweet expression
Saint Joseph de Clairval Abbey is home to Benedictine monks, and a seminary is set up in the village
Finally, Flavigny-Sur-Ozerain was one of the locations for the film 'Chocolat' by L. Hallström with Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp. As for the forest of Flavigny, on the edge of the village, it offers magnificent walks in all seasons
