Emma’s invitation to think SAFETY when travelling in France! A must-read…

Thank you for clicking.

Hidden in the stunning Burgundy countryside,  a warm welcome awaits you!
Just  6 hours from Calais, this is the perfect moment to take a rest, and a deep breath of fresh air…

Join the Magnolia for a night or two in a secluded, discrete spot sheltered from any wind, where the reflections on the water are second to none!
Enjoy a glass of wine on deck while the sun sets over the hills.
After an excellent night’s sleep, over Continentale breakfast you can admire the wildlife… birds, kingfishers, ducks and herons are your only neighbours!
Feeling sporty?.. hop on a bike for a bump-free ride along the tarmac towpath to see the famous Pouilly tunnel  just 1.2kms away.
Magnolia is ideally situated to explore the treasures of the region: The chateaux, the vineyards, the rich history and of course,  the gastronomy!

Why stay in a regular hotel  with numerous guests or a crowded, noisy campsite when you could break your journey with a stay here and enjoy excellent service?


Plus your personal invitation:
