Our host, Mme Dominique Carrez, welcomed us with a glass of wine that we enjoyed in her beautiful gardens. The bedroom and bathroom were well equipped and comfortable. We...

We stayed here and visited Vezelay, only a short 10 minute drive. Dominique, the owner, makes your stay comfortable and she had terrific advice on restaurants and other sights to see. Our "red" room looked out over the gardens. Great value.

However, we are train travelers who enjoy walking out in the countryside and consider this area to be one of the most beautiful for doing that. Just did not have enough time to explore...

We had been in Paris for a few days, then spent a day and night in Versailles, so we had been in crowds for days. We wanted to see something of the countryside, so rented a car from Versailles and off we went. After a stop at Chartres, we made the easy and quick drive to Vezelay and on to...
