This gite is situated in the centre of a small typical French village. There is a restaurant about a 100 metres across the way but it is not open every day of the week. There are no other facilities or shops within the village but you can buy bread from the bread lady who arrives about 10 am each day to the sound of her car horn. There are towns and villages nearby (9km closest) for your daily needs. The Bourgogne regions vineyards are but a short drive away where you will have the opportunity to sample their most famous wine Chablis. We like to get across to France once or twice a year and visit the many differing vineyards. Whatever your knowledge of the French language I would suggest you obtain a copy the 'Hachette' wine guide written in French but easy to follow and it will provide you with details of the wine regions and quality of wine and if it is possible to visit, sample and buy direct from the producers, prices lower than you would pay in retail outlets. The Gite it self is nicely maintained with all facilities you really need. The stairs are a little steep but unless you really struggle to get up and down normal style stairs at home you should be ok. There is a child safety gate at the top of the stairs which really is a necessity. The mother of the owner met us upon arrival, a charming lady who will run through where every thing is and offer advise on best places to go within the surrounding area. Although the position of the Gite is next to a church the clock doesn't work so there are no bells or chimes sounding at any time just the quietness of the countryside. Yet another wonderful relaxing holiday that sadly comes to an end so soon, but theres always next year.
