  Qiet and beautiful: La Marquise  

Our house lies in an area of Celtic origin: the regional nature park of the Morvan, on about 600 kilometres of Ghent. La Marquise is a small part of Chateau Chinon, the capital of the Morvan, president Mitterrand was elected maire of that city in 1959 before he became the president of France.

This breathtaking small city has a lot of sociable shops, bars, boutiques and refined restaurants. The centre even lies on walking distance (2 kilometres) from our house. By the way, did you know that Morvan means "black mount" in the Celtic language?

The region provides in numerous possibilities when it comes to sports and entertainment . You can walk here in healthy air (1000 km of roads) or ride your mountainbike in the wide areas of woods (9 mountainbike routes with signs along in the immediate surroundings of Chateau Chinon). There is water recreation in and around the lakes; sailing, water ski, jet ski, swim and kayak, Lac of the Settons even offer fishing possibility.

Riding your bike in the full region, the Morvan is known for its routes with breathtaking views and "defying" turns. Chateau Chinon lies at a distance of approximately 70 kilometres from the formula 1 race circuit of Magny-Cours. Even in the wintertime there are sports possibilities, you can ski cross-country on the Haut Foulin (900 meters) or the Mont Beuvray.

Furthermore the Morvan offer lots of possibilities regarding exploration of the region.

Vézelay with its breathtaking basilica, the city Autun with its gallo-roman and medieval sites. And we didn't mention the many small villages and picturesque cities in the surroundings...
