Beautiful property in a stunning location
We had a lovely week in Vermenton which we used as a stop off on the way to Cannes. The property is incredibly pretty sitting on the bank of a mill pond at the top of which is a lovely pool which we made good use of during our stay. The property is very well equipped and a comfortable relaxing space to be in. The property is a short walk away from the river and the canal, which were kayaking opportunities for our son who even managed to kayak in the mill pond. There is a good walk/cycle path along the canal to Accolay The Atac supermarket is a 15min walk away and supplied everything that you might need. We visited some pretty villages and towns including Chablis and Auxerre, During our visit we saw an abundance of wildlife, Kingfishers, water vole and also what I believed may have been an otter!
Great stay in bucolic landscape
Oasis of tranquility and still very close to all facilities you may need. The place offers also good access to the most interesting touristic spots. Special thanks to Dee for her hospitality. Our kids enjoyed the pool and a fairytale like forest. The possibility to see and touch the crops, cereal fields and harvest machines was also an unique experience for us, tired of living in a big city.
Magical, delightful, relaxing and just as it looks
We stayed for two weeks at this delightful property - just after a huge storm but all was well in the cottage. Thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet but within 5 minute walk to Vermenton (supermarket, Friday market, tabac, boulangeries) and 20 min walk to Accolay to a fabulous restaurant "Hostellerie de la Fontaine". Friends from Switzerland joined us ( we are from Adelaide Australia) and we explored the regional towns such as Vezelay, Chablis, Dijon, Semur en Auxois, Noyers sur Serein and Auxerre.
A truly relaxing place, perfectly located for exploring the gorgeous Burgundy countryside, canals and Chablis (town and wine). La Tourelle was well furnished, equipped and clean. A big thankyou to Dee and Cinda for all your help and we'll see you again next year for 2 weeks this time!
Thank you. We look very much forward to helping make next year a memorable holiday.
This house is even more beautiful than the pictures show.
Its in a great location and well furnished, equipped with everything you could need for your vacation
We were unfortunate with the weather as it rained 5 days from 7 however there is plenty do to and see in the area and the house is very comfortable.
The village has a good supermarket and with 2 Boulangeries within easy walking distance, fresh bread and croissants are always available.
Although there are 3 properties on the site you feel like you are in the middle of paradise - the views from the sitting area are spectacular
Our best holiday ever!!
I'm almost afraid to say too many nice things about this place as it might not be available next year! What a lovely house and what a great location!! The house itself is lovely, the furniture comfortable, the kitchen more than sufficient and overall just beautiful. The location is great, so private and breathtaking. The garden is quite big and it was a delight to just sit on the large terrace and look out over the fields and the river. The squirrel, watervoles and kingfishers made the feeling of being surrounded by nature complete. All in all it was better than the pictures!The town of Vermenton is nearby and was lovely as well. By car Chablis and Auxerre were also close by. Horse riding is again nearby and the caves are definitely worth a visit! The pool is great and big enough for he four of us.
Dee made us feel very welcome and took great care of us.We love you Dee!!
We certainly want to come again next year!
La Tourelle is a five minute walk from the village of Vermenton which has a restaurant, bars and all basic commerce. There is also a public sandy river beach and park, a football pitch and tennis courts. You will find a good restaurant in the neighbouring village of Accolay (a 20 minute walk along the canal). The department of the Yonne, the northern part of Burgundy is a land of hills covered with vineyards, forests and pastures as well as narrow valleys with swiftly flowing rivers. This region of Burgundy is sprinkled with art and history treasures: Arcy and its prehistoric caves, Auxerre - a bustling cathedral town with elegant half-timbered and brick bourgeois houses, Vézelay listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, Chablis, Irancy and Côtes d'Auxerre vineyards with wine tastings, Bazoches and its château where Marshal Vauban lived, the Morvan National Park and the site of Guédelon, where a fortified castle is being built in compliance with techniques of the 13th Century.
