Guestbook comments from the owner

The Western Gatehouse is a very nice property Lesley is a very accommodating host and is there to take care of any needs. Excellent TV with many English entertainment channels. Good Wifi. Fine kitchen and furnishings. Serrigny is a short distance from both Toner and Chablis. Toner has an excellent grocery store and the market in Chablis on Sunday is one of the best that we have seen

Delightful place we continue to visit

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Chateau de Serrigny for twelve years and have watched it grow and develop. It is truly a wonderful place to relax, enjoy good food and wine or a base to explore the area. This time we stayed in the Western Gatehouse it is well equipped and very comfortable. Paul and Lesley are wonderful hosts who make all of their guests very welcome, they know the area well and are always happy to advise on places to visit. We always have wonderful holidays at The Chateau de Serrigny.

A beautiful place for the whole family to relax and recharge their batteries

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a wonderful week's holiday in the Western Gatehouse and can't wait for the opportunity to return. The accommodation was spotless and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is well appointed with all you need to cook family meals as well as the option of using the dedicated BBQ outside. The children loved the large open spaces to run around freely in and made great use of the trampoline. We had one rainy day and used it as an excuse to have a fire in the woodburner and cosy up on the sofas.

The village is very peaceful and opposite the chateau is the ancien lavoir, a petanque playing area and a ping pong table. Lesley thoughtfully provides boules and ping pong rackets to take advantage of the amenities. The nearest town, Tonerre, is very pretty with plenty of butchers, boulangeries and other shops to browse. I would recommend the amazing market on Sunday morning in Chablis and the children thoroughly enjoyed the prehistoric caves at Arcy sur Cure. Finally, after a day of sightseeing you get to enjoy the most comfortable double bed ever.

Higly recommended.

Sally and family

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful stay in the newly refurbished "Forge". The place is so beautiful and all the rooms have been decorated in the best of taste and respecting the history of the building. The kitchen has everything you might think of. We appreciated a lot the beautiful range cooker, the big fridge freezer and the barbecue. The bathroom is of a very high standard and the shower is the best we've ever seen, with light, music and jets all over...We had a very warm welcome by Paul and Lesley with a log fire burning. Lesley was always there for help, and they know the area very well. The Château is placed on an enormous ground still well secured by gates. Our children enjoyed the giant trampoline, played football or table tennis all day long around the château. It is a very quiet and secluded spot, a beautiful landscape and there is lots to see. We went for a wine tasting and for the Sunday market to Chablis and took a ride on an electric boat in the wonderful town of Auxerre. We will certainly return to this perfect place.

We have recently returned from another short trip to the chateau. This time we stayed in the newly converted Forge.

I have to say that we were pleasantly surprised. It's not our first visit so we know that Paul and Lesley always make so much effort to make us comfortable.

The house had everything we needed . Kitchen is a dream, huge fridge freezer and a beautiful range cooker.

We had lovely evenings sitting in front of the log burner, trying to imagine the Kings horses being shod in that very room . We could actually see the original brick floor was worn where the horses stood !

Since our last visit, there are 2 new restaurants opened in Tonnerre, just a 5 minute drive.

We were grateful that Lesley made a reservation for us at a small restaurant opposite the station. It was very pleasant and great value for money.

We visited our favourite caves in Chablis and Fleys and couldn't go home without a boot full of Cremant.

We would recommend The Forge as it's the perfect house for a quiet get away, with all mod cons .

très bien

nous avons passé 3 nuits avec nos enfants de 7 et 4 ans, c'était un très agréable séjour. l'accueil chaleureux, la maison avec tout ce qu'il faut, beaucoup d'espace pour voir les enfants jouer... dans un village très tranquille à quelques kilomètres de Chablis. Nous avons envie d'y retourner.
