On the 1st January, we left Italy for the French country side. It was our longest drive of about 500km. The scenery was beautiful with snow covered fields and small towns. We drove through the Mont Blanc tunnel which is 12km long through the mountains. We arrived late in the afternoon with the two satellite navigation systems taking us different routes - one along a rode and the other on a mud track. We are staying in my sisters and brother-in-laws house in the small town ...
So on October 30 - we visited several wineries - tasted various c******nay types - visited a family owned winery a purchase a few bottles of pouilly fuisse - my favorite - had a great dinner at the B and B
October 31 - visited Cluny and the Abbey - the revolutionaries in 1790 destroyed the most beautiful abbey -- we seen this a lot throughout France - we then went to a 1600 chateau - beautiful visit.
... home grown pumpkins. They are a bright orange colour and we have seen fields of them.
Braving the rain we walked around Cluny which has a lovely old quarter and then drove to Tournus where I found a brocante.
Monday 13 October
Monday's are quiet days in France. Nothing was open in Cluny so we went to to Charolles, home ...
... decided to stay on and continue to run the chateau. There are areas of the
chateau which require lots of attention. It must take an enormous amount of money to keep it operating. As it said in the book in the room she invites you to share her and her young daughter's chateau experience. And that is exactly what you get. You feel like you are in her home and Isabelle was very welcoming.
The other side, we settled into the 430 mile journey south via Dijon to Macon. We had only picked the town because it had a hotel and Buffalo Grill in close proximity to each other and the motorway. The Ibis Budget hotel was just as expected – clean and boring however the meal was
great and the little bar opposite the hotel filled the rest of the evening, getting us in the holiday mood nicely.
