Family-run hotels

The Hotels in Cluny are all small family-run hotels of a dozen rooms, except the Saint-Odilon hotel which provides 26.

We are far from the hotels of the big chains: these are mainly character hotels in which you will be a visitor recognized by the owners. This corresponds much better to Cluny, a small medieval town established in the middle of the walks and valleys of the south Burgundy countryside.

Adapted opening hours and rates

Small town and small family-run hotels means that you will not find the same practices as in the chain hotels you may be used to. Be aware that opening days and hours and reception times may be reduced.

Because of their small size, these smaller hotels do not benefit from economies of scale and must adjust their rates to reflect this.

For the summer season, book well in advance, as hotels will fill up quickly, especially at weekends.

Cluny, a town of magic (part 1)

Cluny is a real cultural melting pot. It is crossed,

  • in winter by:
    • the students of Arts et métiers (engineering university), the gadzarts, in their long multicoloured biaudes;
  • in the summer by:
    • cultural tourists strolling through the abbey and the medieval town;
    • horsemen taking part in horse races and show jumping competitions;
    • walkers taking advantage of the greenway or on the road to Santiago de Compostela;
    • and the inhabitants of the area coming to fill their baskets in the numerous independent shops which benefit from all this animation.
All of them participate in this very special atmosphere of Cluny, rich, educated and multi-cultural.

Cluny, a town of magic (part 2)

22km west of Mâcon and 40km east of Charolles, Cluny is set in the heart of the wonderful countryside of southern Burgundy and the Saône-et-Loire, protected valleys dotted with small villages that have remained authentic, right in the middle of the Charolais beef PDO area.

Above all, it is a medieval town, with (the remains of) its gigantic Benedictine abbey, its monastic town with numerous Romanesque and Gothic houses which influenced all of Europe and Christianity in the Middle Ages.

Today, a large part of this cultural heritage is preserved, often visible while strolling through the narrow streets, and sometimes well hidden in the properties of the inhabitants of Cluny or accessible during privileged visits.

A generous diversity of inhabitants and visitors wandering through a medieval city with a rich cultural heritage, yes, Cluny is a town of magic!

Our favourite hotel in Cluny?

The Maison Romane 1136

Here is a clearly contrarian answer, as the Maison Romane 1136 is not a hotel but a furnished tourist accommodation. But we fell under the spell of this house classified as a "Historic Monument" dating from the year 1136. It is the second oldest town house in France!

Located in the centre of the monastic village, the accommodation will captivate you with its large volumes as well as a decoration and fittings in perfect symbiosis with Cluny, the probable object of your visit.
