Today our village walking group went on a balade which Chris and I often used to enjoy when we lived in Cormatin.
If you leave La Maison du Curé and turn to the right you will find the agricultural track to Chazelle. It is not supposed to be for cars although this morning M.Bordet the mayor drove past us en route to his farm near Chazelle. But I suppose if you are the mayor you can do what you like. Generally though it is a good safe cycle ride for families with children.
Along the way you often see rare breeds of animals in the fields. Today there were llamas and some unusual sheep. In the past we have seen emus, deer, bison, Brahman cattle and miniature ponies.
At Chazelle you can visit the church, typical of the 12th century. A little further is a farmhouse with lots of ancient farm machinery such as horse drawn ploughs rusting away in the garden.
You have a good view of the Chateau of Uxelles before arriving back at the top of the hill of St Roch with its salle de fêtes. From here you get a lovely view of Cormatin. Then it’s just a short steep descent back to La Maison du Curé.
