There is this little village, probably known to few, that we stayed in a few years back on one of our Burgundian sojourns that is authentic Burgundy at its best. There are no shops, other than a small boulangerie and a local winemaker. There is probably no reason for any tourist to stop off here. But, oh, it’s the real thing when it comes to charm!
I remember waking up our first morning in Villers-la-Faye and leaving our adorable gite to explore the village. My first thought was, ‘I’m in a real French village!’ There was no tourism, just real French life.
The most memorable thing to do in this village is to walk past the Place de la Mairie and onto the Mont Saint Victor path overlooking the most picture-postcard village of Magny-lès-Villers. Whenever we are in Burgundy, we always return to stroll this path and just sit on the bench above Magny to take it all in. The vineyards, the tractors, the rolling hills, the architecture—it’s charm for days.
