Tranquil villages are close in this refreshingly unspoilt corner of Bourgogne: Vézelay and its hilltop abbey, quaint Noyers, and epicurean Dijon just a day trip away.
Through the gate all is verdant with vines and the garden is perfect for evening strolls. You eat convivially on the pretty terrace or in the grand dining room with Patrick and Eric hosting you warmly. Vegetables are home grown, everything is cooked from scratch. Breakfast is equally delicious – homemade yogurt, freshly-baked cakes, local meats and cheeses.
You’re surrounded by gorgeous countryside and the village perches on the river Serein so you can walk without coming across busy roads. Noyers is only 9km away and one of the 100 most beautiful villages in France. Return to romantic bedrooms with fine paintings and antiques, either in the main house or in the stables.
