Girolles les Forges

Girolles, Yonne
Bed & Breakfast

Warmth, serenity and gastronomy come together in a 5-bedroom B&B in long-lost France. A wonderful Burgundian retreat


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


Beyond the hamlet’s church, in gardens where birds sing and hens roam, is a blue-shuttered ‘maison de maître.’ Corinne and Christian love nothing more than to share their life and their home, its regal sitting room, its elegant dining room, its long table laden with seasonal fruits, organic breads and homemade jams at breakfast. Discover historic Avallon and the fine wines of Chablis; return to polished boards, lush linen, a soothing massage. One bedroom is at the top of the steep dovecot stair, three are in the house, and the cellar suite, off the garden, is stunning. As for dinner, don’t miss it: Christian is a fabulous chef.

Such a lovely place to stay, couldn't recommend it enough! We only stayed one night as we were enroute to the Alpes but would have happily stayed longer. The rooms are lovely, the bathroom especially (we stayed in the family suite) and Cristian and Corinne are super hosts. Christian's cooking is well worth staying for, we had a lovely evening chatting to other guests and they also catered well for our two girls (aged 9 and 7). All in all it was a really lovely start to our holiday, thank you very much Corrine and Christian.

  • Le Chateau de Bazoches: home of the Maréchal de Vauban. Visit the castle and gardens.
  • Grottes d'Arcy sur Cure and its cave paintings.
  • The vineyards of Chablis, Chitry, Irancy, Coulanges la Vineuse.
