It’s a misty start to our morning in Saint-Gengoux-De Scisse, then again, it doesn’t matter we don’t have a train to catch. The heater has been on for half an hour when I make a coffee and work on the blog for a while. Next thing you know it’s 9.30, so we make an effort to tidy up and get the Hymer serviced and ready ourselves for another day transiting across France.
Our guide gives an excellent recommendation to a small village called Noyers-sur-Serein in northern Burgundy. About 15kms off the main road, it has a friendly sounding aire, so into the GPS it goes.
Again we try for the D roads but eventually we need to transit the relatively large towns of Chalon and Beaune. So we turn for the motorway that bypasses both and save an hour. Turning for Noyers, the pace slows and we chat about the wonderful French countryside. The vineyards, the farmer’s fields and a lovely village every 5 klm or so.
We are in Burgundy.
Just another pretty little village.
Crossing the bridge over the River Serein into Noyers. The old gate looks interesting.
Noyers is a friendly motorhome village, you can park for free in the car-park or inside a gated aire with all the facilities. At this stage of the trip we treated ourself to inside.
From the clock tower/gate looking into the village. The half timber houses lean this way and that.
Another street scene…
Some houses have had more love and attention than others. As you can see this one is up for sale.
There are really only two streets in the old town, but there are several little lanes and small places with hidden cafes.
The pretty corner.
We go back to the Hymer and relax for an hour or so. At 5.30 we head off again to finish exploring and perhaps find a friendly bar for a drink.
We find the village church this time.
A quick picture inside.
An old street pump.
It’s just 6pm, the doors to this bar open as we cross the square.
So that’s our day in Noyers done…..
