Attractions:Because of its unique position, being only a stone’s throw from the Voie Verte (a flat cycle/walking path that passes through South Burgundy from north to south) and because of the numerous well marked-out routes for walkers and cyclists that criss-cross the area, La Tuilerie is an excellent location for a cycling or walking holiday. You can even have a day out on horse-back to enjoy the area. For those holiday-makers seeking a more spiritual holiday, La Tuilerie has something special to offer. The peace and quiet here are perfect for a more meditative stay and for those who want to spend a week in Taizé, or who would like to attend one or two services, we offer a more comfortable and a quieter alternative to staying in Taizé itself. From the garden you can see the churches in Taizé, you can hear the bells three times a day and it is within walking distance. Further away, but easily visited by car, is the Tibetan Buddhist monastery Kagyu Ling at La Boulaye. You can also just lay around with a good book, enjoying the surroundings in-between visiting the many things that this area has to offer. Either walking, by bike or by car you can enjoy travelling through the gently rolling landscape of the vineyards around here, the Mâconnais, the Côte Chalonnaise, the Côte d'Or and the Beaujolais are all close. On your travels you will pass through numerous picturesque villages where you can visit the many Romanesque churches, châteaux and the abundant potters and artists who sell their works. Just to mention a few of the highlights this area has to offer, the historic towns of Cluny, Tournus, Beaune, Autun, Dijon and Lyon are all well worth the visit.
