Fantastic Music Festival with Great Acoustics
Jul 2019 • Friends
The church in Chapaize is probably 1,000 years old and every summer there is a music festival. My husband’s choir was asked to sing there so I got to see the church inside and outside where there is a fascinating cemetery.
I would highly recommend going especially to hear a concert.

Beautifully restored church

The Eglise Saint-Martin is definitely worth the trip. Beautiful architecture and recently restored it's a great example of medieval church architecture.

Sunday morning, market day(puce). Beautiful old 11 c Roman church. Heard a local? Couple singing, pretty amazing. It sounded like a whole choir! Simple interior, huge columns.

Beautiful 11th century church
Jul 2015 • Couples
The Eglise Saint-Martin in Chapaize is one of the oldest Roman churches in Burgundy, with building beginning about 1021-1023. One of its most unique features is its 35 meter high bell tower.

We fell in love with its solidity and its simplicity.

Sublime example of Romanesque architecture
Jun 2015 • Friends
This church and its charming village are part of what seduced me to leave Paris and move to this area permanently. A perfect example of the pared down Romanesque style, in an idyllic setting. I have a particular fondness for the doors too. Definitely worth at least a drive by if you're in the area, but if you have the time to contemplate its simple beauty with a visit, you should do so (and finish off with a meal at one of the fabulous local restaurants!)

very pretty church, especially the outside
Sep 2013 • Couples
The whole village of Chapaize was very picturesque, but it is the church in its center that is a true gem, particularly the outside. I really liked the doors, I had never seen any like that before, and the rose bushes growing along the road in front are an especially nice touch. The inside was a lot plainer than we expected, but apparently that is typical of this period of architecture, which really grew on us over the course of our two-week stay in this lovely area. Worth a detour, especially if you are going on to Tournus or Brancion.
