The park and the region
Our house Les Roches Morvan is approximately 120 meters walk from the Lac des Settons, in the Natural Park ‘The Morvan’. Morvan The name comes from the Celtic: Mar = black and Vand = Mountains.
This park is located in one of the oldest regions of France, Burgundy or Bourgogne. Burgundy was already in the Middle Ages a very important region, even parts of the Netherlands have heard for a while in the regions of the Burgundian lords. This region we often associate with the good life. Enjoying good food and fine wines, which can also be a summer with its mild climate makes for delicious grapes. The burgundy has a continental climate which means that summers are warm, but the winters can be very cold.
The park covers areas in all four departments of Burgundy Nièvre, Saône-et-Loire, Yonne and Cote d’Or. In the west and north it borders the valleys of Bazois and Auxois in the south and east to the plains of Charolais and Autun. The park covers an area of 290 900 ha near the GR 13 (Grande Randonnee), the great trail that is part of the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela portion and Assisi. This route runs along the left bank, the “rive gauche” of the lake, so you too can feel as a pilgrim for one day.

You can choose whether you want to walk around one or more days, opt for a stay in a nearby Chambres d’Hotes during your tour – we will get your luggage on site – or we can pick you up at the end of your walk.
