The Morvan was the area of the Celts. Anywhere in the environment are still remains of their culture and of the Romans to visit such as les Fontaines Salées, (about 30 km). Here were the sacred springs of the Celts, salt water sources where still today water bubbles up.
The famous Basilica of Vézelay, Bazoches Castle, the picturesque Avalon and Chateau Chinon with its nice museums, are less than 35 km from the holiday home.
