I am planning a visit to Guedelon at the end of September. We will have roughly a week to spare before we have to be back in the UK. I am led to believe Auxerre is the best place to stay for access to Guedelon, but I really have no idea what else is in the area. I gather we will need to hire a car to get to Guedelon and presumably to properly explore the area. We are a family of 4 - kids aged 9 and 12.
Just after some suggestions on what there is to do in the area, whether to stay in the city itself or in the countryside. We are happy just exploring the countryside, not so much looking for major 'sites' to see.
