Dear Patricia & Michel,
Thank you for a wonderful stay in your glorious home. You have done an amazing job with renovating and restoring it into a beautiful country family home! I particularly enjoyed cooking in the large country kitchen, it had absolutely everything we could need to prepare a lovely meal in.
The gardens were magnificent and a lovely retreat to recharge the soul! We are sad to be leaving such a beautiful spot – Burgundy is a fabulous region and we hope to visit again one day. Thanks for your generous hospitality and making us feel so welcome in your home. And the yogurts were the best we have ever tasted! Until our next visit, au revoir,
The Route de Cremant, the wine road of Burgundy’s “champagne”, runs within a few meters of your front door.
Further afield, there are many places to see & visit all at your finger tips to name a few:- Immerse yourself in the Burgundy wines of the Cote d’Or Chablis, to the North & Cote de Beaune & Nuits to the south.
Immediate local attractions are the famous village Flavigny where Chocolat was filmed, Abbey de Fontenay a World heritage site, Renoirs Attic, Vezelay cathedral, Museum of Chatillonnais and much more.
