Burgundy Vezelay Balloon Ride : a village perched on the eternal hill
Considered one of the most beautiful villages in France, Vézelay is unmissable in more than one respect and this reputation has not been tarnished.
Centre of Christianity since the Middle Ages with its famous Sainte-Marie-Madeleine basilica, restored by Viollet-le-Duc, perched on the hill of pilgrims, the whole is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The view of the Burgundy countryside from the basilica is impressive, but it becomes breathtaking from the basket of a hot air balloon. The juxtaposition of fields and forests to the foothills of the Morvan, form extraordinary paintings, sometimes brought to life by the presence of game. We then feel privileged to enjoy such a unique point of view, far from the cohort of tourists in a hurry. We also understand why the region has responded for centuries to the quest for spirituality and inspiration from religious and artists. It is not surprising, therefore, that Vézelay has since been one of the main points of departure for the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela via the Via Lemovicensis.
A few hundred meters from the ground, nature reclaims its rights and gives meaning to our history.
