a northern burgundy day…


My ‘holiday’ week continues (next week I begin my attack on the 2017 whites) but today our first stop of the day was Auxerre – of-course noting a little Côteaux Auxerois on the way into the city!

The entry into the city, over the bridge is a balm for sore eyes – simply beautiful. A great place to spend half a day, following the back-streets of the old town, moving from Hotel Particular to Hotel Particular – fully recommended!

Then onwards to the Abbey of Fontenay, but en-route a must stop is Noyers-sur-Serein – described as a preserved medieval town – worth an hour or two of anyone’s time:

We finished our day at the Abbey of Fontenay – frankly it’s worth double the price of admission (a paltry €10) – I could have spent a whole day with a collection of cameras!

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
