Maison du Tisserand de l'Abbaye de Flavigny
Reviewed October 23, 2012

I have just come home from a short trip to France. I spent a couple of days with old friends in Paris at the beginning and end of the trip but my primary destination was Flavigny-sur-Ozerain in Bourgogne (Burgundy) where I stayed at the Maison du Tisserand de l’Abbaye de Flavigny (in English: the Home of the Weaver of the Abbey of Flavigny). It was a wonderful visit. Especially because of where I stayed.

Marie and Daniel Algranate have created a lovely place for visitors. My room was completely new and tastefully decorated. A comfortable bed and attractive old furniture for putting away clothes. If the places to see outside were not so enticing, it would be pleasant to pass time in the room. The private bathroom (all new with shower, sink, toilet and tile everywhere) was spacious and attractive. I had the room with a double bed but I peeked at the other room with two twin beds and would recommend it too -- it had an amazing view!

The two rooms for guests are upstairs. Come down a beautifully crafted wood stairway to the main rooms. The Algranate home is tastefully decorated with old wood pieces and beautiful objects. In October there were some days when the crackling fireplace was such a welcome sight. I enjoyed the delicious breakfasts each morning and the conversation. Daniel and Marie were so kind and interesting, giving me ideas for activities or just chatting about life. Their hospitality made the visit even more wonderful. And be sure to see the view out the living room window to the valley below and the hills beyond. Writing this makes me want to go right back.

Flavigny is an incredibly pleasant, quiet village, picturesque and charming to explore and beautifully situated high on a hill above the gorgeous Burgundy countryside. Views inside the village of narrow streets and ancient buildings and views out from the village of valleys and green rolling hills. (Yes, it is “one of the most beautiful villages of France”!) The Maison du Tisserand, where I stayed, really is the home of a weaver. Daniel Algranate has an incredible resume as a designer and weaver. Be sure to visit the Algranate’s museum of the history of weaving and associated crafts like spinning and dyeing. There is much to learn. It is a walk past several streets past the church and down the hill, but still inside the walls of the village. Also I enjoyed the tour of the factory making Anis candy. Small tins of the candy make good gifts to take home too.

But don’t just walk around inside the village. You can take a hike in the nearby Forest of Flavigny. Just put on your hiking boots and walk right out of the village into the woods. Daniel Algranate was so kind to take me for a drive into the woods so I could later go on my own. He offered a map but I did not need it.

I also used Flavigny as a home base for visiting the Burgundy countryside nearby. With a car there are many places to visit for day outings. I enjoyed Semur-en-Auxois and the Morvan (a national forest) and the Abbaye de Fontenay but there are many very beautiful sights just driving nearby on tiny winding roads. The road to Alyse-Sainte-Reine was lovely and toward Darcy too. And the sights along the Burgundy Canal are so pretty. Fields of large creamy cows and sheep. Meandering streams through meadows.
