Lovely cottage, sleeps 4, in a charming village in the foothills of chardonnay vineyards. An hour and a half south of Paris. Great base to visit Burgundy, Champagne, the eastern Loire. Area has nature, architecture, great food and wine and a slow pace. Virtually never overrun with tourists. We love guests and enjoy helping them discover all there is to do in Burgundy. We offer meals in addition to breakfast. (just let us know ahead of time) The cottage is great for a family of 4 or 2 couples who like each other as it is an open space - there is a 15euro charge in the cottage for additional persons (so a family of 4 is 130euros a night). There is a double bed in the loft and a queensize sofabed in the living room. Linens are furnished. Breakfast and meals served in the garden among roses and birdsong. There is a fully equipped kitchen as well as space heaters for the winter guests. You are 15 minutes away from Auxerre, with lots to see and do and a superb restaurant (Jardin Gourmand). You are also 15 minutes away from Chablis and wine tasting. Rates for the cottage are 100euros for 2 people, 115euros for 3 and 130euros for 4 people. There is a 20% discount for stays of 4 or more nights and a greater discount for weekly stays. There's a great restaurant a 5 minute walk from the cottage. Breakfast is included for bed and breakfast guest, but not for people staying more than 2 nights as there is a kitchen for guests to prepare meals, and a bottle of chardonnay comes with the cottage. Meals are 25euros a person with a bottle of wine. For housekeeping we ask that you leave 50euros before departure so we can clean for the next guests. For those staying for a while, you are welcome to use the washing machine for your clothes. We happily make picnics for you to take on your explorations. Hope to see you soon!
