About us.

About 7 km away from Vézelay, in the heart of Burgundy, France, lies the village of Montillot. In these green and peaceful surroundings we warmly welcome you to our guest house!
Our house belongs to Vézelay’s historical heritage. Renovations were therefore carried out under the strictest conditions. According to legend, it once belonged to Templars who used it as a meeting place.

Particular detail: behind our house lies the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. From here on, you can walk part of it straight to Vézelay!

In this haven of peace we have three cozy and comfortable guest rooms. Every morning, we serve a delicious and extensive breakfast.

We will gladly help you explore the region so you can fully enjoy this historic place with its world-famous basilica, the small villages, excellent wines and unspoiled nature.

We speak Dutch, French and English.

Welcome to our guest house! We hope you will enjoy your stay as much as we do.

Come visit and we will be happy to make time stand still for a while.

Kindest regards,

Luc and AnneMarie De Decker
