In couple …
Bucolic landscapes, charming accommodations and romantic restaurants, everything is there to meet with his half!
Your weekend in lovers begin at the cellars of Bailly Lapierre, an atypical and unique place in the Yonne which has the distinction of raising its Crémant de Bourgogne in an old underground stone quarry. It is in these 4 hectares of galleries 50 meters underground that the guided tour can begin. Thanks to the guide’s explanations, to the projection of an explanatory film on the stone and the atmosphere that reigns in these galleries, you quickly understand the history and manufacture of Crémant de Bourgogne. You learn that the cellars of Bailly-Lapierre are one of the largest producers of Crémant which is felt because almost all the walls around us are covered with bottles that wisely wait to ripen. At the end of the visit, we offer a tasting of several wines and we leave with a glass as a reminder. The Burgundy welcome is always so warm!
You leave the cellars to go to the place of your next stop. In Cravant you have found a restaurant, the Ô Jouvence, where you enjoy your mid-day break.
Rendez-vous with Mise en Art or rather Amandine Chevallier, guide speaker who will make you discover the village of Cravant. A medieval village with keep, church, narrow streets and half-timbered house. Village formerly fortified, we let ourselves, during the ride, imagine what life could look like in the Middle Ages.
Before joining your accommodation for the night you take the opportunity to make a stop in the village of Accolay. The small notoriety of this village comes from the community of potters who was there and who is at the origin of the pottery and ceramics of Accolay. A tour by the pottery seems inevitable then you continue your way along the canal before heading back to the Abbey of Reigny where you will spend the night in an authentic and refined.
Direction Cravant where your bikes are waiting for you. You can not wait to leave for the old towpath converted into a Véloroute that borders the Nivernais Canal. On this road you will meet bikes, rollers, pedestrians and even boats! At your departure you follow the direction of Mailly-la-Ville, not without reason, because you know that you can find a bath and so enjoy the sun for the rest of the morning.
Back to the Tourist Information Office of Cravant to return your bikes and set off to discover Chablis.
You have booked a visit of the William Fèvre domain to discover one of the most prestigious areas of Chablis. On the program, visit the winery and commented wine tasting. Next time, will you be tempted by the oenological stays proposed by the domain?
To finish this second day, you choose a relaxing activity “Le Spa des Clos.” Here beauty and well-being are honored. There is more to choose between the different treatments or the sauna of the relaxation area, perfect for a moment in lovers.
For your last night, let yourself be tempted by the gite Pigeonnier Colbert in Rouvray. A place between authenticity and modernity in the middle of nature.
