A Visit to the Medieval Village and Castle of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois - French Châteaux
https://www.gobarging.com/ - Luxury all-inclusive hotel barges cruising the beautiful waterways of Europe. A Visit to the Medieval Village, Craft Shops and Castle of Châteauneuf-en- Auxois
During our classic Burgundy cruise aboard hotel barge L'Impressionniste we visit the medieval village, craft shops and castle of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois, once an outpost of the Dukes of Burgundy and offering a fine overview of the feeder lakes, canal and surrounding countryside.
Châteauneuf-en-Auxois is a tiny, charming, hilltop town, well worth the climb up the steep path. This romantic and fascinating village is like a miniature Carcassonne, with its turreted castle, its encircling walls, and its elegant houses once belonging to rich merchants. The château, built in the 12th and 15th centuries, affords a broad view over the rolling farmlands, with a view of the Canal de Bourgogne and the woodlands of the Morvan. At its zenith, the town had a population of 500.
The 12 Passenger Hotel Barge L'Impressionniste -- the Lower Burgundy Canal
Sister ship to La Belle Epoque, L'Impressionniste began life as a cargo barge in Holland before undergoing a complete transformation into the gorgeous hotel barge she is today. Her light and airy interior features picture windows and a selection of prints, fabrics and wall coverings reminiscent of the era after which she has been named, while each comfortable cabin is complemented by an en suite shower. The spacious saloon has also been upgraded with the addition of some comfortable leather sofas and individually designed fitted furniture. A week cruising aboard L'Impressionniste on the Burgundy Canal introduces you to a wonderful blend of Burgundian countryside, history and viticulture.
