Guestbook comments from the owner

The gate house is as pictured and clean. It is part of a historical chateau in the heart of town. The location is ideal for day trips to Chablis, yet a quick drive the opposite way to Tonnerre brings many wineries, shopping, and more Chateaus to explore. Our Host went above and beyond to set up vineyard tours, make hotel reservations, give us the "must do's" nearby and alert us of local schedules. It is a perfect destination for anyone looking to unplug, experience some great wines and food, do some hiking, or visit the French countryside. Would love to go back!

Second visit and still as beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here, first in the Eastern Gatehouse and this time we rented both Eastern and Western Gatehouse they are both lovely places too stay and ideal for a quiet break from it all. It was good to meet up with Lesley again and see all the work they have completed in the last year it is such an amazing place and their plans for the future are so exciting. The Gatehouses have everything and more than you need and if you need any help with anything Lesley is on hand to assist. We loved the wine tasting in Chablis its the most beautiful place to visit for the wine and restaurants. To be honest Im always ready for home at the end of my holidays but I could have easily stayed here longer its like home from home. Thanks again Lesley and wish you and Paul all the best with your plans Sarah and Marc

Peaceful and contented stay

  • 4 of 5

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.

What a lovely place

  • 5 of 5

We've just come back from a lovely week in Serrigny. The gite is fabulous, very well equipped, clean and comfy. Lesley is the most wonderful hostess, ably assisted by Charlie and Harry, and looked after us perfectly, including one memorable barbecue evening where we drank some lovely local wines and I even bombed about the chateau grounds on a quad bike - a first for me!! Serrigny itself is very quiet and peaceful but there's plenty to do a little further afield. Can't wait to go back - particularly when the chateau renovations are complete. All in all, can't recommend highly enough - thanks so much Lesley, hopefully see you and the boys again soon xxx

Charming wine country retreat

  • 5 of 5

The property is clean and as shown in the photos. It's location is central to many fabulous wineries, castles, good hiking, and restaurants in all directions. We arrived with no agenda. Thankfully the host went above and beyond to help us arrange wine tastings, booked us restaurants, and gave us the “must see” of the area. Great estate to get away from hectic lives and unplug. We enjoyed our time in Chablis thanks to our host’s recommendations. She also directed us to one of our new favorite wineries in nearby Tonnerre. Highly recommend the host and location!

Very Comfortable Gite in the Chateau

  • 5 of 5

Paul & Lesley picked us from Tonnere station and drove us to the Chateau, stayed in the Gite for 5 days which provided all amenities required and very compfotable, hosts explained set up and were very helpful. During our stay Paul & Lesley recommended many great places to eat and wine taste around Chablis and Champagne areas...very nice. They also invited us to socialize with plenty of wine and Barbecues, extremely entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable. When not travelling around area we were able to relax and fully take in the peace and serenity of Chateau De Serrigny, left their very refreshed, and highly recomeded...thanks Paul and Lesley

The Chateau is just a stones throw from the famous village of Chablis where there is a lively market every Sunday morning. Locally,we can organise free wine tasting for you and obviously give you the best tips on where to buy Chablis. Here you can taste for free and take guided tours of all the vineyards. 'On site' tasting is also possible in our dedicated cellar saving the need to drive or find babysitters. East takes you to Aube region where the Champagne grapes are grown before transportation north and finally with great Burgundy reds to the south you are perfectly placed. Burgundy also boasts some of the best cheese in France and there is nothing more enjoyable than sitting on the side of the Burgundy canal (4km away) with some fresh bread, cheese and a bottle of local wine. Restaurants offer a wide variety to suit all, but will of course serve up all the local specialities.

Other activities include fishing, rock climbing, canoeing, horse riding and bowling and loads of space for the children to run around in....

Auxerre is 20mins drive with its fantastic renaissance architecture and great shops and restaurants.
