Charming cottage in idyllic surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic two weeks here in August 2017. The weather could have been kinder, but even in the rain this property is stunning.

Watching the sun rise, with ghostly clouds of mist swirling on the distant fields and the babbling of the stream, was the perfect antidote to our city life. We spent hours just enjoying the natural environment around us, spotting deer, birds of prey, and a resident heron, to name but a few.

Within a few miles drive along almost deserted roads there are miles of canal towpath for easy walking or cycling, with the occasional boat negotiating the evenly spaced locks providing additional interest.

A little further afield you will find the sprawling vineyards of Chablis and Sancerre, with a huge range of vintages on sale at the local supermarket.

The only disappointment we had was the lack of restaurants open for business. However, to be able sit in the garden and eat very well was equally enjoyable.

If you really want to get away from it all, but also have plenty of good walking and picturesque villages to explore nearby – or fancy a bungee jump off the nearby viaduct (every other Sunday) then this is the place to stay. Highly recommended.

We had a very relaxing fortnight in this lovely little gite

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped and very comfortable. The stream and fields are full of wildlife -including resident kingfishers deer and red squirrels. Very quiet

A lot of interesting places to visit within easy reach by car. Lovely walks from the door around the village.

Only downside is lack of places to eat and drink in village. Would recommend.

Tranquility......

  • 5 of 5

Lovely accommodation in the most peaceful surroundings.... Bbq and sit by the stream,,,, watch the kingfisher going up and down,,,, if you are lucky you may see a deer or two come out of the woods as the light fails.... Then as the light drops you glimpse the bats feeding but the best is yet to come,,, the big night sky,,,, amazing,,, can't remember seeing so many stars... Walk around this property's land,,,, great week...

Beautiful nature and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

Domaine du Sources is a place of total quiet and peace in the middle of nature. With a fresh water spring running quietly right outside your window, and the spacious and beautifully designed interior, and vast private garden, you have the perfect vacation in the middle of nature. You will find fresh water ponds, views of open wheat fields, and a forest for exploring, with many nature walks in the area. The cottage is excellently outfitted with all you need to do your own cooking, or if you prefer the excellent restaurant L'Auberge des Sources is a five minute drive from the estate. Auxerre, just half an hour away is a lovely town with an old center, beautiful cathedral and many dining possibilities. Fontenay Abbey and Vezelay with its Romanesque cathedral are within driving distance.

In addition to all of that, the hosts are delightful; warm and welcoming, ever so helpful when you need assistance or advice and they have an absolute respect for your privacy. We stayed at the Domaine last summer, choosing it randomly as a pause in our travel to Southern France. This year we decided that this vacation spot has all we wanted, so didn't bother to travel further south. We can't wait to return.

A very nice and well equiped gite

  • 5 of 5

This house has the complete equipment you need for a fine holiday. It is situated in a very quiet and nice, old landscape. The near by village of Druyes is an 'village historique' . The host is friendly and helpful.

Genieten van rust in prachtige omgeving.

  • 5 of 5

Bijna teveel positieve punten om op te noemen. Maar hierbij een aantal; vriendelijke eigenaren, verzorgde en compleet ingerichte woning, rust, prachtige gigantisch grote tuin, veel herten en roofvogels kunnen zien. Al met al; een aanrader!
