    The history of Charlotte and Doctor McMahon

    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!

    Day 20: Avignon and Beaune

    A travel blog entry by creeky on Jul 25, 2015

    ... Mum and I sat down and shared a Moules-frites (mussels and chips) and a salad. Before heading back to the bus for our 4 hour drive to Beaune we looked at some of the shops, and bought some tea towels and postcards. Back onto the bus for a number of hours, which was broken up by watching a movie " The Bucket List ". After a long drive we arrived in Beaune for a free night. A few of us went to the local food court for dinner, with a quick stop at the supermarket for a few ...

    Hi everyone. Hope you are all well. We have been having a wonderful time and it has taken me a bit longer than planned to send a message....so here is a long one! We arrived in London after a super easy journey. Stella was fascinated by the flight. That we flew higher than the clouds, that it was night time for a long time, that someone brought our food and we didn't even need to get out of our seats for it......

    ... was a ditch running alongside. It would have been so easy to find yourself in it. That aside it was magnificent châteaus and vineyards everywhere that took our attention plus the wine caves and some which are the cooperative outlet shops for the many smaller growers. We did stop at Beaujeu where Beaujolais gets its name, but everywhere was closed for a very long lunch so we could not buy a Beaujolais wine in Beaujeu! We then drove on to ...
