In the municipality of Vic-sous-Thil in Côte-d'Or, one natural site is particularly eye-catching. From an altitude of 480 metres at the gates of Morvan, the Butte de Thil hillock overlooks the valley. The peaceful landscapes of Burgundy stretch before you, including the first foothills of Morvan and the Auxois hills. There's only one word for it: magical… But this incredible vista is not the area's only asset!

At the top of the hillock stand two listed historic monuments: a medieval fortress, guarding Auxois like a sentinel, which happens to be the oldest fortified castle in France, and a beautiful Gothic collegiate church built in the 14th century, with arrow slits in the walls. The two buildings are connected by a pleasant avenue of ancient and charming lime trees.
