Morvan, tell us more about yourself!
Morvan is the green lung of Burgundy. This granite mountain range, with a peak at an altitude of 900 metres, is the closest mountainous area to Paris, less than 2 hours from the capital. It is home to some remarkable species and is covered with lakes and forests.
This area has been protected under the Regional Natural Park status since 1970 and visitors might just catch a glimpse of the kingfishers, grey herons and deer who have taken refuge here.
A rush of adrenaline
The Morvan is most definitely heaven-on-earth for nature lovers, those looking to enjoy the great outdoors and fans of thrilling adventures. There is something for everyone here, with 1,500 km of hiking trails, 2,500 km of MTB trails, 1,500 km of horse riding trails, and 6 lakes!
Thanks to its geographical location, visitors can expect some fabulous views in the Morvan. It takes a bit of effort to reach Haut-Folin, Signal de Uchon and Mont-Beuvray, but the views are most definitely worth it!

The Morvan in autumn
Xavier went to the Morvan last autumn and is going to tell you all about his experience. He was looking for a beautiful place for a change of scenery, that was easily accessible by car, and so an obvious choice for him was the Morvan Regional Natural Park or the "Green Lung of Burgundy".
He would remember this Burgundian getaway in a breathtaking natural environment for a long time, as well as their magical overnight stay at the Domaine de la Pierre Ronde.
