"Sud Bourgogne Immobilier Sotheby's International Realty" has been serving for more than 15 years the most important markets in Southern Burgundy. Its multi - lingual team offers its international and local customers a wide range of carefully selected properties, ranging from important châteaux to charming country houses. One of its three offices is located in the historic town of Tournus, which has a wide variety of fine old buildings, among them a great Romanesque church, and charming picturesque streets. Its position on the main North-South route (once the N6, now the A6 motorway) has helped it build up its reputation as a gastronomic centre with several good restaurants. The region attracts a growing number of visitors, not just the summer tourists but also more and more international visitors regularly coming back to their homes in the area for another healing draught of "douceur de vivre". Like Cluny, Paray le Monial and other towns in Southern Burgundy,Tournus has cultural activities of considerable vigour, fuelled by the attraction of their historical renown. Many interesting markets, shops and services can be found in the region, and their proximity to the wine-growing areas of the Mâconnais and the Beaujolais are a huge attraction to wine enthusiasts. Above all, the outstanding beauty of the surrounding countryside never fails to strike the first-time visitor. Despite its ease of access, this region has happily preserved an intimate, unspoiled character. There is undoubtedly something special in the blend of habitat and countryside, of tradition and modernity - a special charm in short. ____________________________________________________________________________________ Etape gastronomique en Bourgogne au bord de la Saône - et ayant aussi une sortie d'autoroute - Tournus est une charmante ville au patrimoine architectural exceptionnel, notamment son abbaye.
