Burgundy, France
Here we are in front of the doors of our room at La Vigne du Pont, in Vieux Chateau, Burgundy.
Our room was decorated
with a Medieval theme. . .
but the bathroom had all the modern amenities - heated towel rack, jetted shower - the works!  
Our sitting room came complete
with a local liqueur.
The area is full beautiful villages and ruins from the 12th Century.
In the morning we had a typical breakfast of local breads, pastries, croissants,
home made jams and coffee . . .
at night our table d'hôtes started with kir and gougère (a Gruyère pastry) followed by parslied ham all Burgundy specialties.
Philippe, our chef, prepared beef with green beans and
potatoes for the main dish.
The cheese course included goat cheese with raisins and a flavorful Epoisses cheese served with Philippe's
birthday wine, a rich Aloxe-Corton.
