A beautiful place for the whole family to relax and recharge their batteries
We have just come back from a wonderful week's holiday in the Western Gatehouse and can't wait for the opportunity to return. The accommodation was spotless and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is well appointed with all you need to cook family meals as well as the option of using the dedicated BBQ outside. The children loved the large open spaces to run around freely in and made great use of the trampoline. We had one rainy day and used it as an excuse to have a fire in the woodburner and cosy up on the sofas.
The village is very peaceful and opposite the chateau is the ancien lavoir, a petanque playing area and a ping pong table. Lesley thoughtfully provides boules and ping pong rackets to take advantage of the amenities. The nearest town, Tonerre, is very pretty with plenty of butchers, boulangeries and other shops to browse. I would recommend the amazing market on Sunday morning in Chablis and the children thoroughly enjoyed the prehistoric caves at Arcy sur Cure. Finally, after a day of sightseeing you get to enjoy the most comfortable double bed ever.
Sally and family
Thank you so much for writing a lovely review for us.
As you know we are always thinking of ways to improve our guests experience, and it is the little things that make a difference .
I would love to welcome you all back to the chateau anytime ,we can spend an afternoon chatting about George over a bottle of wine !
Delightful place we continue to visit
We have been visiting Chateau de Serrigny for twelve years and have watched it grow and develop. It is truly a wonderful place to relax, enjoy good food and wine or a base to explore the area. This time we stayed in the Western Gatehouse it is well equipped and very comfortable. Paul and Lesley are wonderful hosts who make all of their guests very welcome, they know the area well and are always happy to advise on places to visit. We always have wonderful holidays at The Chateau de Serrigny.
Thank you both once again for taking the time to write a positive review for us.
As always ,it was a pleasure having you both to stay.
We look forward to welcoming you back later this year.
Peaceful and contented stay
We stayed in the Western Gatehouse and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lesley was very charming to us and gave us excellent recommendations on places to visit. During the daytime we usually spent time visiting places of interest in the region and then spent the evenings out of doors - sampling the wine and local produce and catching up on reading. We enjoyed hearing of Lesley and Paul's plans for the chateau and wish them every success with their project. Chablis Sunday market and the Cave at Bailly are a must as are the historic quarters in Troyes and Auxerre.
A most enjoyable and relaxing stay.
Peter and Sue
Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us.
It was a pleasure having you to stay. I hope to see you both again soon.
The Warmest Hospitality Ever !
The Western Gate was absolutely perfect, cosy, beautifully decorated with every comfort taken care of. Lesley, the owner, went above and beyond the call of duty in every respect, and nothing was too much trouble for her. She even offered to drive us into Chablis so we could do some wine tasting without worrying about driving! A very well situated gite so close to Chablis and Les Riceys, the Champagne region. We would highly recommend this holiday gite and we will definitely return ! Thank you Lesley for a "magic" week !
Thank you for taking the time to write a positive review .
It was a delight having you to stay , and i would love to welcome to back to the chateau soon.
warm and welcoming
The Western Gatehouse is a lovely comfortable place to stay, it has been refurbished to a high standard, the facilities are excellent and the decor is charming.
Nothing is too much trouble for Lesley, the owner, she is warm and welcoming and helpful with advice about the area.
Chablis is just a short drive away with several good restaurants and a market on Sunday morning. Tonnerre is a few minutes drive in the other direction with a supermarket and some wonderful history.
We recommend this property to anyone looking for a warm welcome, in a peaceful setting with everything you might need a short distance away, we had a very enjoyable holiday.
Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review for us .We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in the new Western gatehouse.
Hope to see you both later in the year.
We have recently returned from another short trip to the chateau. This time we stayed in the newly converted Forge.
I have to say that we were pleasantly surprised. It's not our first visit so we know that Paul and Lesley always make so much effort to make us comfortable.
The house had everything we needed . Kitchen is a dream, huge fridge freezer and a beautiful range cooker.
We had lovely evenings sitting in front of the log burner, trying to imagine the Kings horses being shod in that very room . We could actually see the original brick floor was worn where the horses stood !
Since our last visit, there are 2 new restaurants opened in Tonnerre, just a 5 minute drive.
We were grateful that Lesley made a reservation for us at a small restaurant opposite the station. It was very pleasant and great value for money.
We visited our favourite caves in Chablis and Fleys and couldn't go home without a boot full of Cremant.
We would recommend The Forge as it's the perfect house for a quiet get away, with all mod cons .
