The Experience

Beyond the hamlet’s church, in gardens where birds sing and hens roam, is a blue-shuttered ‘maison de maître.’ Corinne and Christian love nothing more than to share their life and their home, its regal sitting room, its elegant dining room, its long table laden with seasonal fruits, organic breads and homemade jams at breakfast. Discover historic Avallon and the fine wines of Chablis; return to polished boards, lush linen, a soothing massage. One bedroom is at the top of the steep dovecot stair, three are in the house, and the cellar suite, off the garden, is stunning. As for dinner, don’t miss it: Christian is a fabulous chef.

Absolutely delightful one night stay with a stunning dinner provided by Christian who is an exceptional cook. 3 courses plus cheese, a double room for two with bath and shower and vast breakfast with Christian's home made jams, cold meats, croissant etc. All for 213 euros for two. Very good value. Girolles les Forges is an absolute must to stop and have a stay.

We were on our way back from the Alps and received a very warm welcome. Fabulous dinner - really great cuisine with local cheeses and wine. Would thoroughly recommend.

Abigail, Emsworth

Such a lovely place to stay, couldn't recommend it enough! We only stayed one night as we were enroute to the Alpes but would have happily stayed longer. The rooms are lovely, the bathroom especially (we stayed in the family suite) and Cristian and Corinne are super hosts. Christian's cooking is well worth staying for, we had a lovely evening chatting to other guests and they also catered well for our two girls (aged 9 and 7). All in all it was a really lovely start to our holiday, thank you very much Corrine and Christian.
