We had a lovely week in Vermenton which we used as a stop off on the way to Cannes. The property is incredibly pretty sitting on the bank of a mill pond at the top of which is a lovely pool which we made good use of during our stay. The property is very well equipped and a comfortable relaxing space to be in. The property is a short walk away from the river and the canal, which were kayaking opportunities for our son who even managed to kayak in the mill pond. There is a good walk/cycle path along the canal to Accolay The Atac supermarket is a 15min walk away and supplied everything that you might need. We visited some pretty villages and towns including Chablis and Auxerre, During our visit we saw an abundance of wildlife, Kingfishers, water vole and also what I believed may have been an otter!
Lesley and her family transformed the Forge in a very tasteful house with plenty of room and enough modern facilities. Lesley is a warm person with a good sense of humor. The old Chateau takes care of a romantic decor, together with the beautiful piece of land behind it, where you can take a nice walk. When I walked the dog in the early morning, two baby deer were grazing a few meters in front of us. That was like a real fairytale! And that was why our Beagle Bello was so alert every time when we walked there!
The surroundings are perfect if you like history ( old castles and beautiful cathedrals) and Chablis wine or other Burgundy wines. Nature is around everywhere and it's so quiet and peaceful! Not many tourists.. So we fell in love with this spot.
