We spent a lovely week here in a very well equipped cottage tastefully done to a very high standard. Lesley was very helpful in recommending places to visit. We arrived late on Saturday night due to long delays at the tunnel but she was there to greet us and had the house warm and well lit which was much appreciated. We travel a lot and have to say that this was one of the best places we have stayed in. To be recommended!

First time in this property, will not be the last!

We were very pleased with everything and can recommend this property.

Lesley & Paul were very helpful and charming.

Thank you to you both for a very relaxing and comfortable week.

Have to admit to being more than pleased that we could get UK TV as I managed to watch the Grand Prix highlights.

The Western Gatehouse is a beautiful property in an idyllic location, perfectly equipped for our family of 5 people. We could sit outside with a wonderful view of the old chateau or play boules in the village square just opposite. A car is essential as there is no shop or restaurant in the village but there are nearby towns (Chablis, Tonnerre) and the bread van comes in the morning. Leslie was a perfect host and could not have been more helpful or welcoming, from recommending (and booking ) a restaurant for us on the Sunday night of our arrival to recommending wine caves to try and river spots to swim in. I would highly recommend the property as a great base for exploring the local area and relaxing.
