No violence is the holidays … Take off the moorings, relax and laze! Let yourself be sailed on the Nivernais canal and discover along the way the villages and unmissable sites steeped in history. And what better to end the stay than a cocooning break in a Spa.
Here we are in Vermenton where we wait for our charming boat that will take us over the water Nivernais Canal where we can admire beautiful green landscapes.
Before boarding we go for a walk in the village where we fall in love with a very pretty floral wash house. After some photos we arrive at the port where the staff of France Fluviale prepared our boat. After some technical explanations, such as sailors, we take off the moorings and sail along the water for a day of absolute relaxation.
Lock after lock we arrive at Mailly-la-ville. A break on the sunny terrace of Snack Mailly we do the greatest good and we slowly go up the canal in the opposite way.
Our second stop will lead us to the charming medieval town of Cravant. Formerly this village was one of the most important ports of the Yonne. The halls are a reflection of this great economic activity that once reigned there. The medieval heritage is remarkable (keep, vestiges of ramparts …)
We are back in Vermenton. After returning our boat go to the Abbey of Reigny a few kilometers away for a guided tour. We learn that here remains one of the last Cistercian refectories in France.
This quiet and relaxing place located on the banks of the river “la Cure” is also bed and breakfast. The serenity of the place convinces us to stay at night.
To end this relaxing day, a night walk in the village of Vermenton appetites us. We dine at one of the restaurants in the village and enjoy tasty homemade dishes.
Let’s go to La Chablisienne, the only cooperative winery in the Chablis vineyards for almost a century. The range of Chablis wines presented is remarkable and we appreciate the commented tasting that is offered to us.
As lunch time approaches, we choose to reserve a table at the Hostellerie des Clos. This gourmet restaurant invites you to discover with delicacy the Burgundy cooking in a chic and refined.
Our restaurant has a SPA. We decide to give ourselves a moment of absolute relaxation before we return to the tumult of everyday life.
Our stay ends in this place dedicated to the well-being and the relaxation and thanks to complete and quality professional care.
It is here that ends this stay more than relaxing that we will renew with pleasure.
