In the midst of Auxois (12 km from Semur-en-Auxois, 6 km from Venarey les Laumes), and yet so often through secret land of a thousand riches in the heart of Burgundy, that the monastic town of Flavigny-sur-Ozerain preserves its unique history to its full height.

The village built on a rock around a Benedictine monastery since the 19th century became a factory of anise, spreads its charm in an inextricable mix of religious architecture, civil and military.

It is by getting lost in its alleys, taking his time to turn a grassy walkway that he must discover the village. Find his way by being guided by the massive silhouette of the church of Saint Genest throne in the heart of the city which is the soul. Down in the vaults of the convent of the Ursulines, discovered among the bushes, the oratory, go through the gate to imagine at the foot of the crucifix, the peasants of the valley from sale on the "lump of butter" for their products do not have to pay award ... sounds like the drawbridge down heavily in the evening in the door or gate of the valley from the village. Descend into the crypt, Carolingian, and guided out by a sweet anise smell of the fabric of the abbey nearby ... attend vespers in contemplation punctuated by chants of Benedictine monks of the abbey of Saint Joseph Clairval then ... s 'to go strolling around the tanneries, the road lanes where haflinger ponies bred Charolais cows alongside the beautiful village of farmers and end up in the valley, sharing a glass of pinot noir in the cellar of the vineyard of Flavigny along the river, Ozerain.
