Check out the beautiful environment in and near Marraycourt. Experience the local art, hiking trails and not to forget… the beautiful countryside.
Driving into the Brionnais region, you will experience the abundant land in multiple facets. An area of cattle, green landscapes with rolling hills, forests, small lakes, streams and wide meadows that lead to fortified towns, farms and vineyards. But also of ancient history that can be traced back to the arrival of the Romans.
The gently rolling landscape of the Brionnais offers many cycling and walking routes. There are over 500 km of marked footpaths ranging from 2 to 30 km, adapted to the level and wishes of each individual. Behind our estate runs a former railway track; the now paved path is nowadays used as a walking/cycling/skating route.
Along the water, over the hills or through ancient towers: the forest paths and small country roads offer you endless possibilities! The different routes will lead you along various secrets and assets of this region: untouched nature, vast landscapes, historical and architectural curiosities, old crafts and, of course, gastronomy!
Not far from us you will find the vast vineyards of Burgundy, on the hills of Mailly and Fleury; they produce an organic wine called “Vin des Fossiles”: Pinot Noir, Gamay, Pinot Gris, Auxerrois. But of course you can also enjoy delicious wines on the various terraces in our village (within walking distance!).
