Book a holiday at a gite in Yonne for a French escape off the usual tourist track. This rural region includes the vineyards of Champagne and Burgundy so wine tours and tastings are a must! The countryside is also renowned for the miles of rivers, canals and lakes so it's ideal if you'd like to plan canoe or kayak expeditions, or spend a day fishing for anything from wild trout to game carp. Gites in Yonne are only a couple of hours drive from Paris, so a day trip to see the famous sites of the capital is easy to do. Relax, enjoy unspoilt countryside, stargazing and nature with a glass of local wine - what could be better?
