We spent a fantastic two weeks here in August 2017. The weather could have been kinder, but even in the rain this property is stunning.
Watching the sun rise, with ghostly clouds of mist swirling on the distant fields and the babbling of the stream, was the perfect antidote to our city life. We spent hours just enjoying the natural environment around us, spotting deer, birds of prey, and a resident heron, to name but a few.
Within a few miles drive along almost deserted roads there are miles of canal towpath for easy walking or cycling, with the occasional boat negotiating the evenly spaced locks providing additional interest.
A little further afield you will find the sprawling vineyards of Chablis and Sancerre, with a huge range of vintages on sale at the local supermarket.
The only disappointment we had was the lack of restaurants open for business. However, to be able sit in the garden and eat very well was equally enjoyable.
If you really want to get away from it all, but also have plenty of good walking and picturesque villages to explore nearby – or fancy a bungee jump off the nearby viaduct (every other Sunday) then this is the place to stay. Highly recommended.
