From the Hotel Le Kolibri
Destination: Burgundy and Bresse
Le Kolibri stands proudly over Tournus and the Saône Valley, providing a bird’s eye view of the area. This will act as your introduction to a colourful world where you can discover new places or relax to your heart's content, whether you’re here for work or leisure. Tournus itself has plenty of things of interest. Start with the Saint Philibert Abbey, rising like a great fortress overlooking the great river, where light and shadow, narrow vestibules and radiant volumes go hand in hand, symbolising the spiritual quest of the founding fathers. Meanwhile, the Hotel-Dieu (the old hospital) houses both a hospital museum as well as the town’s art museum, the Musée Greuze. And don’t forget the Musée du Vélo (the Bike Museum), which will likely make you want to hop on a bike and set off into the sunset.
The green surroundings around the Hotel Le Kolibri make for the perfect base from which to discover the towns of Chalon-sur-Saône or Mâcon, as well as the regions of Bresse and Southern Burgundy, a charming wonderland with its unmissable nature, culture and gastronomy.
