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.
The house is compact and access/egress to/from the shared courtyard is quite narrow for a car of average size. We parked a short distance away on a small car-park (featuring a brand-new charging point for electric/hybrid vehicles!!).
Perrigny is a small village with the river Armancon and the Burgundy Canal close by.
It provides both a convenient location from which to visit the many places of interest in the area and a good base for walking and cycling.
There is a new Bi1 supermarket (rue du College), in nearby Ancy le Franc, which saves journeys to either Montbard or Tonnere for a wider range of supplies above basic.
The owner of the house lives across the road and was very friendly and helpful......a factor which has added an extra star to our rating.
