Already at our arrival Bill and Jenny gave us a warm welcome. We enjoyed our stay very much in this cozy and charming cottage.Especially in the evening and night it was quiet, you could only hear some birds (and the soft chiming of the churchbells).
Many interesting places and lovely villages are in easy reach. The building of a medieval castel in Guedelon, the near village Semur-en- or Flavigny, the film location of "Chocolat". Or the ancient battlefield "Alesia" where the romans beat the Gauls.
We surely will return, the next time in a more lively season because in the end of Octobre many restaurants are closed in the evening. But in the nearby supermarket in Epoisses we found everything to cook our dinner ourselves in the very well equipped house.

We visited this wonderful castle for the 2nd time. As we live in Australia, it was part of our European trip and Chateau Gerard was definitely the highlight. We organised this stay of one week with friends from the USA, Denmark and Australia. It worked very well, as the castle with its 10 bedrooms, large kitchen and huge dining and lounge rooms lends itself for such a get together. With 4 cars between us, we explored the areas individually. We visited Vezelay, the Abbey of Fontenay, Semour, Auxerre, D’Ancy de Franc, all within a relative short distance from the castle. Each afternoon coming home, we met around the swimming pool in its peaceful surroundings and exchanged our experiences of the day over wine, which we mainly bought from the wineries in nearby Chablis. Dinner was easy and fun. Our delicious entrees were bought from a special butcher/deli in Noyers, who also had excellent pieces of meat and poultry for our BBQ. The desert also came from Noyers, the boulangerie across the boucherie with the tastiest tarts. Most of our dinners we had on the terrace under candle light. (the weather was perfect). The last dinner we held inside, just to experience what’s it like to be king and queen in a castle.
It is a special Place and we came back with such fond memories.
