Guestbook comments from the owner

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 .

Like a fairytale

  • 5 of 5

Lesley and her family transformed the Forge in a very tasteful house with plenty of room and enough modern facilities. Lesley is a warm person with a good sense of humor. The old Chateau takes care of a romantic decor, together with the beautiful piece of land behind it, where you can take a nice walk. When I walked the dog in the early morning, two baby deer were grazing a few meters in front of us. That was like a real fairytale! And that was why our Beagle Bello was so alert every time when we walked there!

The surroundings are perfect if you like history ( old castles and beautiful cathedrals) and Chablis wine or other Burgundy wines. Nature is around everywhere and it's so quiet and peaceful! Not many tourists.. So we fell in love with this spot.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in the Forge. The facilities were great, it has been tastefully restored and the Chateau and its surroundings are very impressive. Lesley was so responsive to my queries prior to our stay and couldn't do enough for us during our holiday, making us all feel so welcome. We hope to visit again and stay longer!

Burgund - Serrigny - Lesley's Schlösschen

  • 5 of 5

Nach unserem Urlaub im August '16 ist unser Fazit: " Wir kommen bestimmt wieder ". Das Haus entsprach allen Versprechungen (Waschmaschine, Spülmaschine, WiFi, TV etc.). Mit viel Liebe renoviert und eingerichtet. Lesley und ihre Familie sind die Besten, immer da wenn man sie braucht und mit vielen Insidertips im Gepäck. Wenn man diese ausprobiert kann nichts mehr schiefgehen.

Serrigny und Lesley's Schlösschen sind wie aus einem historischen Roman gefallen. Es ist ein wunderbarer Ort der Ruhe, von dem man aus tolle Locations erkunden kann. Wein, Cremant, tolles Essen, viel Kultur, ursprüngliche Landschaft, verwunschene Städtchen...... Wir waren begeistert!

The Warmest Hospitality Ever !

  • 5 of 5

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 !

warm and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful week in a charming gatehouse

  • 4 of 5

We instantly felt welcomed when we arrived at the gatehouse by Leslie, who we'd been in contact with, as we were going to be later than expected. Leslie booked us into a local restaurant in Chablis which put us at great ease! The gatehouse was charming with a huge amount of character. The setting also was stunning, set in the grounds of the old chateau. The kitchen was well equipped although small, but was just what we needed! The TV was british so we could watch the standard channels, news etc. The bedrooms were comfortable, my dad had the best night sleep in years! Serrigny was lovely! A quiet and pretty village. A bread van came some days which added to the experience and we enjoyed playing boule and table tennis in the village! Leslie was extremely helpful and was always happy to help with recommending restaurants and wine tasting etc. Chablis and Tonnerre were only a 10-15 minute drive away. Chablis had a Sunday market which we visited on the first day. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the chateau grounds and walking around the local area. The whole family had a wonderful holiday! Thank you Leslie for being so helpful and welcoming! The bottle of Chablis in the fridge when we arrived was also a lovely touch and was extremely welcome after a long journey! We hope to visit again in the future, but in the meantime will recommend to friends visiting the area!

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.
