      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!

      We had lunch out on the Aquavit Terrace on the ship. We wanted to take advantage of eating on the deck since it wasn’t raining today. They had flank steak and yummy shrimp sandwiches among other things. During meals drinks are free. I asked for an extra Coke to take with me. They always have a coffee/ tea bar with delicious cookies available. The raisin cookies are to die for! We spent the next few ...

When we got to the bus even though I told the woman I had to have a seat towards the front (she said it was no problem) the bus was almost full and there were no seats in the first half of the bus. I told them I couldn’t go to the back of the bus and everyone just stared at me. I had to ask if anyone was willing to give up their seats – I was so embarrassed. Finally, a couple in the fourth row got up and I ...

      ... winemaker with a great wine-making passion, was able to buy some of the finest grapes in Burgundy to make his first wines. He named his establishment Maison Ilan. He owns no land; he just wants to buy the finest grapes and make great wines. He uses ancient traditions for making wine; much of the work done by hand. His wines are too pricy for us but we enjoyed learning about how he broke into the ...
