The stunning scenery surrounding Maison des Reves inspires exploration of the Burgundy region. Whilst it is a quiet and rural area, there are lots of activities all the way from wine tasting to horseback riding, canoeing and waterskiing on the lakes close by; there will definitely be something to interest guests of all ages. Nature Adventures (16km) is a great place that offers loads of tree-top activities including paintball if you and your family are up for the challenge.
The house is located a short drive from the charming town of Saint-Fargeau with shops, restaurants and a noteworthy castle. Keep your eyes on the lookout as your visit might coincide with one of their re-enactments. There are also two local attractions, Ferme du Chateau (8km) and Parc Naturel de Boutissaint (16km), where the kids can see many animals in their natural surroundings. Furthermore, the Chateau de Guedelon is worth a visit as you will get to see first hand how they build a 13th century castle utilising traditional materials and methods.
Auxerre (52km), a protected historic town in France right on the river, is a good place to go on a day trip and explore its beauties such as its magnificent cathedral and coffee shops or simply walk through the medieval streets and appreciate the ancient houses. Other towns which are worth a visit are Gien (40km) and Briare (25km), both very quaint market towns. Briare, on the Loire River, also crosses with Canal de Briare making it ideal for boat trips and riverside strolls.
A day trip to Joan of Arc's house in Orleans (115 km) is idyllic for any history lovers out there as is a trip to the wonderful Vezelay (75km), on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela with its 12th century Basilica and beautifully preserved streets full of colourful flowers in the summer months.
