    The castle of Sully is only 20 minutes from Autun on the route to Beaune.
    It's definitely not one of this gorgeous rich "chateau" but quite low key: nevertheless imposing in the nude simplicity of its main Renaissance facade.
    The guided visit of the apartments is a bit limited - they only show you a few rooms on the ground floor of the north Wing - but they give you a lot of background about the castle architectural evolution and the different families that owned it.
    Built in the 12th century by a knight called "...de Sully", it was then bought in the 16th century by the family Sauvan? that is responsible of the additions in Renaissance style, then again passed on to the Morey brothers.
    The youngest (60 years old!!!) of the Morey brothers set out to find a wife to take care of the property and married the 19-years-old Charlotte Le Belin. But, he fell ill just after she moved in with him and the 3 brothers. He died a bit after leaving Charlotte alone living in the castle with the super old!!! brothers. Oddly (or maybe not) she did not go back home and stayed there and eventually she remarried wirh Dctor MacMahon that had cured his husband during his illness. At the death of "the brothers" she inherited everything! The Mac Mahon family has owned the castle since and opened it to the public recently, probably to cover the expenses of this beautiful - but massively expensive to maintain - property!

    Then, to cap it all, just short of Chalon-sur-Soane, on the sat-nav route, there were major road works, the road was closed and a diversion in place.

Walked into Pommard proper and saw the pretty houses and amused a school child who thought I was Anglais..Australian was so amazing to him he seemed to doubt me? Drove to Montrachet through goat paths and had a look at the village there must be 1000s of winemakers in this area! Pickers ...

    A prompt arrival was followed by the usual wait for luggage and then meeting up with other members of our tour to be taken on the 90 minute journey from Lyon to Chalon-sur-Saone which was mainly spent in and out of sleep. At 11.30 hrs we ...

They will grow into it.

The panoramic views of trees, pastures, fields and canals under the gray skies filled our lenses. The walls and towers of the Chateauneuf created a sense of security for this ...
