We are young organic winemakers settled since 2019 in a place that looks like the end of the world.
We offer 2 pitches 100m from our house, in a large meadow just for you, with a view on the Saône valley (and sometimes the Mont Blanc). You will be in the middle of the nature with this impression to be alone in the world.
You have access to sanitary facilities (hot shower, toilets) and to a kitchen in an independent accommodation, which you can share with other travelers.
You will be able to taste the wines of the domain (Beaujolais-Leynes, Saint Amour, Bourgogne Blanc, Saint Véran, Pétillant naturel) and visit our farm (vineyards, highland cows, sheep, chickens and horses).
We offer breakfast and picnic baskets made of local and/or organic products. We also provide you with hiking maps to walk around the domain (4 routes more or less difficult).
The setting is magical: you are surrounded by forests, vineyards, moors and meadows. The view is breathtaking, you are at an altitude of 450m, you dominate the whole valley of the Saône and can admire the Mont Blanc on a clear day.
2 pitches are available for 2 different travelling families. The pitches are flat, grassy or dirt, and easily accessible by gravel paths. Two large trees separate the 2 pitches and allow you to have lunch or rest in the shade.
The sanitary facilities
We provide you with toilets, a sink and a shower (hot water). The toilets are located at a hundred meters from the pitches, in a small house independent from ours where friends, wwoofers, travelers stay from time to time. You will share these toilets with them. Remember to take a headlamp to access the toilets at night.
You will also have access to a small kitchen in the self-catering accommodation, to share with other travelers. In this kitchen, you will have access to a refrigerator, a gas stove and the necessary cooking equipment. You will have access to sockets to charge your phones for example.
If you like nature, you are in the right place! You can read in a hammock in the shade of the trees, go hiking, mountain biking or canoeing in the Saône. The Roche de Solutré is 10 minutes by car and 1h30 by foot, it is a wonderful spot for climbing and hiking.
The village of Leynes where we are located is very lively and pleasant. You can walk down there and enjoy the night markets every first Friday of the month, have lunch or dinner at the restaurant "La Marmite de l'Echanson" and play a game of "pétanque" under the plane trees of the very nice village square.
The region is also very rich culturally: 25 minutes from the house, Cluny with its ancient abbey and its lively Saturday morning market, 20 minutes from the house, Mâcon and its old historical center as well as its banks of the Saône, 35 minutes from Châtillon sur Chalaronne and its famous covered market with a magnificent and huge gourmet market on Saturday morning.
We look forward to welcoming you to this peaceful and magical place.
Possibility of breakfast (€10 / person)
Breakfast includes bread and pastries from the very good bakery in the village of Leynes, butter, jam and honey (from the beehives on the estate), granola, homemade yogurt and fresh fruit or fruit juice.

The end of our cycling trip and a few days in a picture-postcard landscape at David and Sophie's place.
The site is magnificent and calm, we were very well received and enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the morning: a pleasant comfort after the last, slightly steep kilometers of the previous day.
A very good memory for us,
Thanks again, Sophie!
Communication was very easy. David's wife was very responsive and accommodating. The setting is beautiful. The farm is located at the end of a road with several easy hiking trails for children. The tent site has an incredible view of the valley. Due to bad weather, we did not have the chance to see the Mont Blanc. We even had the possibility to go to the "grape pickers' lodging" with stove, table, sofa... which was a great help considering the weather! David took care of us by setting up a table and chairs on the site. The animals on site (Irish cows, horses, sheep, chickens, dog) are a real plus when you come with your family! To complete this stay, Sophie took the time to explain us their course and to make us taste several wines of their different parcels! a big thank you! We will come back with great pleasure!
