Discover Yonne and La Nièvre

Travel, heritage and lifestyle

Experience the best of Burgundy

Here, the horizons are breathtaking. The Burgundian landscapes offer a mosaic of colours, tinged with softness, splendour and richness.

Everything is there, from wild and wooded valleys to ponds and lakes, passing by stone and granite facades. In this forgotten space, nature takes over and paints us sumptuous pictures, mixed between streams, rivers and meadows. You will also be able to detect a marvellous history, built around traditions and know-how.

Indeed, Burgundy is not only the (fabulous) department of the Côte d’Or, with its famous climats, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also the Yonne and the Nièvre, whose marvels we are going to evoke.

Thus, Le Domaine des Carriers offers you the opportunity to discover an area adjacent to your accommodation, whether you stay for 3 days, 2 weeks or 1 month

The village of Chevroches

Chevroches is a charming village whose streets are lined with stone houses. It is built on a hillside above the Nivernais Canal. Its location in the middle of the forest makes it particularly quiet and restful.

As you leave the estate, on the left, you can take the path of Charles Loupot, a French poster and graphic artist who previously owned a country house in Chevroches. It will lead you to the pretty Place de l’Eglise.

Further down, narrow streets lead you to the Canal du Nivernais, only 800 metres from the estate. Once used to transport timber and stone, it is now used solely for tourism. In summer, many pleasure boats and barges ply its course and stop for the night. A cycle route allows you to walk or cycle along it in the direction of Clamecy (4 km away), or in the direction of Tannay. And believe us, this walk is worth the diversions. The proximity of the water and the dominance of the stone attract walkers every season.

On the other hand, on leaving the estate, on the left, there is a signposted walk around Chevroches. This is the PR 15, “the old meander of the Yonne”. This fossilised meander is a real geological curiosity and the tour is a 3km walk, between stones, water and forests.

The city of Clamecy

Clamecy is a pretty town located 4 km from the Domaine des Carriers. It is possible to get there by following the Canal du Nivernais from Chevroches.

The town’s children include Claude Tillier, author of Mon Oncle Benjamin, Romain Rolland, Alain Colas and many others.

On the other hand, it was in the 16th century that the town experienced its first period of prosperity, thanks to the invention of timber floating. The construction of the Canal du Nivernais was started in 1784 to supply the Parisians with firewood, but was not completed until 1843. This real man-made construction made it possible to float wood from the Morvan forests to Paris. And the town of Clamecy was the capital. From its rich past, the town has preserved an old town centre classified as a “protected sector”, in which you will find half-timbered houses, cobbled streets, restaurants and shops.

Things to see include the collegiate church of Saint-Martin, the Bethlehem church, the Vauvert park, the Romain Rolland museum and the port of Clamecy, which was built for the boats of the Canal du Nivernais.
