Arriving at Le Chardon our first impression was very pleasing . Surrounded by rolling vine covered hills and traditional french homes.We parked easily in the car park directly opposite our accomadation how lucky were we.
Our hosts had seen us arrive and welcomed us at the door .
We were assisted to our room and invited to have a drink in the bar when we were ready.
Our room was clean and spacious with great veiws. After a quiet nights sleep we went down to breakfast a wonderful choice of healthy cereals, yogurts, fruits, juices and coissants with jam and butter. Yummy!!
Clugny, Macon, Tournou to mention a few local towns we discovered war memorials, chocolate shops, museums and art exhibitions. Further a field we travelled to The Jura mountains and the French Alps ( Mont Blanc ) .
Le Chardon provided us with a traditional French menu which was freshly cooked onsite.By the end of our stay we had tried almost every dish on the menu( hot satisfying and filling ) very filling good size portions. Nick is a great cook and his Baileys Tiramisu is YUM !!!
Rebecca took the dogs Chablis and Channel for a walk before dinner and invited us to join her.We had a guided tour of the vineyards and meet some of the neighbours.
We will be returning hopefully within the year.
Le Chardon is great if you want to stop for one night to tour other parts of Europe or for a relaxing short break.
Nick and Rebecca are friendly and fun to stay with ,nothing was to much trouble .
Thank you for a fabulous break!!!
