Massangis, near Noyers-sur-Serein

Click for location

Near the medieval town of Noyers-sur-Serein in the pretty little village of Massangis, you will find this charming chambres d’hôte run by Patrick Cabon. From the decoration, there is no mistaking which country you are in – the house is very French chic, but it is not ‘precious’ – managing to be elegant, and both comfortable and welcoming. It has been renovated to combine the best of the old and the new – mellow stone floors and wooden beams, classic Toile de Jouy wallcoverings and good bathrooms. With a peaceful location, private parking, secure internet connection and friendly hosts, you can relax and immerse yourself in the French countryside. Here, you have a bed and breakfast venue worth going out of your way for.

There are five bedrooms, each with en suite facilities. The style is classical and the beds, large and comfy. Diane, shown below left, is the most romantic and expensive of all the rooms, perfect for a special occasion. The other rooms are equally charming and have their own individual character. Breakfast is included in the price and is served on one of the terraces when the weather is fine.

During the day, visit the famous town of Vézelay, taste the wines of Chablis, marvel at the extravagant decoration in Château Ancy-le-Franc and watch the world go over coffee in the medieval town of Noyers-sur-Serein. At the end of the day collapse with a drink and relax over dinner at Carpe Diem, served in the dining room by the fire in winter and on the terrace in summer. This is a traditional four course meal with wine included, for 35 euros per person, offered each day except Thursday.
