La maison Au bord du Canal


The house "Au bord du Canal" has a very nice view of the château of Chateauneuf en Auxois, a hill-top village classified as one of the prettiest villages of France.

On the other side of the canal, opposite of the house, runs the cycle path ‘la Voie Verte’. This paved path follows the canal for 212 km, good for very agreeable bike riding.

The private four-place car park is protected by a sliding electric gate. Bicycles can be stored in our secured bicycle shed. This shed has power plugs to easily charge your electric bikes and a water point. There also is fridge at your disposal.

Breakfast is served, weather permitting, on the canal-side terrace. There is a very good restaurant, about 15 minutes walk along the cana,l in Vandenesse. Or you can go up the hill to Chateauneuf en Auxois, here are various restaurants at different price ranges. By bike, (the hill is quite steep), or on foot (30 minutes), or by car. Please make a reservation before arrival !

"Een onvervalste aanrader" Fantastic Chambres d'Hotes with a view of the castle, hill and canal so every day is different when you get up. Coby and Alan really make a difference; Very sweet owners who ensure that their guests have a wonderful stay. Rooms are nice and spacious (we stayed in the family room "l'Etoile"), everything is neat and clean and the beds sleep wonderfully. The breakfast is perfect, I advise everyone to try the homemade jams and let yourself be surprised... We stayed for 4 days to go out with the road bike; Insanely nice area to cycle through, both flat and challenging hilly, the vineyards on the Côte d'Or are great to see up close. In short: don't think about it but just drop by, you won't regret it
