This accommodation is owned and managed by a couple who understand the needs of their guests and they go out of their way to try to accommodate your needs. Having said that we had as little or as much contact with them as we needed. In our case we were seeking a quiet week away from 'tourist land' where we would be comfortable and undisturbed. This we achieved.
The accommodation we stayed in while next to the house and joined to it by an arch (great for keeping the car cool and out of the sun) had it's own sheltered back garden and large covered eating area which is very private and not over looked or disrupted by noise from the main house.
We had a great week away from tourists and tasted 27 different Chablis (all premier cru). Went out to lunch a lot. You must have more than one lunch in Chablis to really feel you are beginning to understand the area and it's people.
If you are looking for what we were looking for you will have a great time. The only downside maybe the lack of air conditioning but if France had more air conditioning it would be overrun by more wimpy tourists.
This property is well located on the outskirts of Auxerre and within easy reach of the both the town and the famous Chablis vineyards. The chateau itself is spacious and well equipped, and has been renovated to a very high standard. Each of the 5 bedrooms is large and there's plenty of room to spread around inside and out. Catering for a large group is very easy, given the size of the kitchen.
We had a very relaxing week, and thoroughly enjoyed staying there. Also worth mentioning that the property owners, though on hand all the time, were welcoming, helpful but unobtrusive.
