We were looking for an accommodation near Auxerre on our yearly Burgundy trip. By coincidence we found La Bichonnière. We stayed there with two other couples. The drive up to the property was already something special; a narrow road lined with trees. Approaching the house we were greeted by the owners, Stéphane and Julia. The rooms are spacious and decorated with much taste. Everyone in the party was very happy with their choice. Later we enjoyed a glas of wine on the terrace with the owners to be followed by a relaxing and lovely dinner. Stéphane and Julia are wonderful hosts; we had engaged discussions and enjoyed every minute. After a restful sleep we indulged on a sumptuous breakfast. La Bichonnière will definitely be a must stay in the future.
