Where we are Burgundy Friends

Most of the English speaking members of Burgundy Friends are in Central Burgundy, in and around Autun in the Saone et Loire, Avallon in the Yonne, Luzy in the Nièvre, Beaune in the Côte d’Or and the Morvan Regional Parc, parts of which fall into all the above departments.

The majority of our events (see our events page) are held within the areas where members are.

The Region of Burgundy (Bourgogne) covers an area north to south from Sens to Macon and east to west from Nevers to Dijon. It is now included in the larger Bourgogne-Franche-Compte administrative region.

The view from our house is over the Lac du Crescent, its origins dating back to the 1930s when the river Chalaux was flooded to produce hydroelectric power. It is now a favourite lake for keen fishermen – Jacqueline
