Day 2 (Monday): Auxerre - Vincelles

After breakfast we golf at Roncemay Golf & Country Club. This international standard course, designed by Jean Garaialde in 1991 has hosted many of France’s famous competitions. It is overlooked by the Chateau in whose grounds the course has been developed. We then return to the barge for  a cruise through some delightful locks and past vineyard-clad hillsides to our rural mooring at Vincelles.

NON-GOLFERS: After breakfast, our excursion is to the medieval town of Auxerre. Originally the capital of Lower Burgundy, the town prides itself on its lavish Renaissance houses, fine churches and particularly its magnificent cathedral situated close to the river. After lunch back on board, our cruise takes us through some delightful locks and past vineyard-clad hillsides to our rural mooring at Vincelles. Perhaps this is a good time to enjoy a walk or bicycle ride along the towpath.

Overnight: L’Art de Vivre at Vincelles.

Day 3 (Tuesday): Montbouy - Vincelles - Mailly la Ville

Our morning cruise is southwards through rich pasturelands past grazing Charolais cattle to the sleepy village of Mailly-la-Ville. The afternoon excursion is to Chablis, home of one of the most famous white wines in the world. A tasting in one of the town’s aged cellars will introduce you to some of the local Petit Chablis and Chablis wines.

Dinner on board.

Overnight: L’Art de Vivre at Mailly la Ville.

Day 4 (Wednesday): Mailly la Ville - Le Saussois

This morning, we visit the charming 14th century medieval market village of Noyers, one of the most beautiful villages in France, on an excursion through delightful countryside. In the afternoon we cruise past the Saussois cliffs where an international climbing centre creates a spectacular setting. There will also be the opportunity to enjoy spectacular walks before dinner ashore at La Beursaudière restaurant in Nitry.

Overnight: L’Art de Vivre at Le Saussois.

Day 5 (Thursday): Le Saussois - Lucy sur Yonne

This morning we transfer to Château de Chailly golf course which was designed by Thierry Sprecher and Géry Watine, professional champion of France in 1989. Around its 16th century chateau, the Chailly golf course offers a magnificent course marrying the classicism of a formal garden with modern golf course construction. We return to the barge for an afternoon cruise through the picturesque Yonne valley to arrive at Lucy-sur-Yonne.

NON-GOLFERS: This morning, we enjoy an excursion to the pilgrimage town of Vézelay, one of Burgundy’s most famous treasures with the Romanesque Basilica of St Mary Magdalene, craft shops and fine views of the surrounding countryside. After lunch back on board, an afternoon cruise through the picturesque Yonne Valley to arrive at Lucy-sur-Yonne, again with excellent towpath cycling and walking opportunities.
