Chalon Sur Saone, France…
Well not really, it’s the smaller city (Saint Germain Du Plain) which is across the Saone River and through the woods on the way southeast side of Chalon. The wine coop we like is located in Chalon, I’ll talk about that later.
But below is a picture of the château we stayed at for the evening.
Château de Saint Germain du Plain
If you look closely L and I are standing in the left hand corner by our car.
We walked through the town looking for food. Arriving on a Sunday afternoon presented a challenge, because everything was CLOSED!!!
The only ‘French’ restaurant was closed, so our second option was a French/Italian food joint up the road from the Château.
Our hosts were so nice to us, they even called the restaurant to make our reservations. When we arrived it was quite funny to hear the owner of the restaurant say in his French accent, “you are here from the Château yes…have a seat.”
Below is a picture of the Mitchell Duo rubbing elbows with the local town artist.
After dinner we took a short walk thru town taking in the local sites.
Above is a statue commemorating WWI.
Here we are the following morning having breakfast around 8am.
Oui, oui … du pain!!!
Shortly here after we headed to the local Maisons des Vins de la Côte Chalonnaise. Since I forgot to take pictures you can check it out here – http://www.maisonvinsbourgogne.com/
But make sure to keep this place a secret, we don’t want the prices to go up.
And so the next phase of our journey began.
a short video of our travels.
Until next time…hugs,
