Cheilly is intersected by the rivers Cozanne and Dheune and by the Canal du Centre. The old canal towpath has been turned into a "Voie Vert" (Green Way), and the village is also close to the Santenay-Nolay "Voie Vert" (an old railway track). There are also lots of signposted footpaths to help you discover the attractions of the Burgundy countryside.
It is a region particularly rich in history.
Beaune is both interesting to visit and an important motorway junction (A6, A31,A36). There is a wide range of restaurants and wine cellars.
Autun is a Gallo-Roman town with impressive monuments including pre-Roman Celtic buildings. It is well worth a day's visit and the drive there through the Morvan forest enables you to discover another aspect of the beautiful Burgundy countryside.
Chalon Sur Saone is the administrative and commercial centre and the birthplace of photography (Niepce).
Cheilly has the following amenities:
Bar, tabac, restaurant, pizzeria 'Les Maranges'
Butcher/charcuterie, where you can also buy bread.
Post office, wine cellar.
There are also 8 wine producers, with tasting opportunities, all around the village.
Santenay has a few shops including a chemist, and is well known for its casino.
Chagny has a railway station, shops, supermarkets and an excellent street market on Sunday morning.
While living in the Paris area when my husband worked at UNESCO, I had the opportunity of buying a house in Burgundy. We both fell in love with the region. After my husband's death, I decided to stay. I did a training course as a tourist guide and have had the pleasure over the past nineteen years of helping people from all over the world to discover the beauties of my land of adoption. My son lives at Cheilly les Maranges, an hour's drive south of where I live, and when he told me that the little house opposite his was up for sale, I decided to buy it. Having had it completely restored, I was able to spend last winter there, instead of in my rather isolated and large house in the country. I had fun putting the finishing touches. Now it is ready for holiday letting.
