Pictures of our Burgundy


4 h from Bruxelles, 3 h from Geneva,
2 h from Paris, 20 kms from Chablis.
The Village of Tanlay crossed by the canal
of Burgundy is situated near Tonnerre.


Our part of Burgundy is a very pleasant
area where life is very good. Far away from
city stress, one takes time for sharing,
tasting and enjoying life but also to walk,
cycle, fish, or golf and go boating. To discover some highly historical places.

Visit the Renaissance Chateau of Tanlay, Ancy Le Franc designed by the Italian architect Serlio and the mysterious  five sided Chateau of Maulnes build for Louise de Clermont .

In Tonnerre The Hotel Dieu one of the oldest Medieval hospital founded by Marguerite of Burgundy in the 13th century and The Fosse Dionne where in the center of the 18th century public wash space  is a water source  already known at the time of the Romans.

Noyers Sur Serein, the charming middle age village.

And of course the vineyards of Chablis, Irancy and Epineuil for a discovery of the wine.


Do come…

walking, riding, boating along the canal, by train, bicycle, car and helicopter.
