      Chateauneuf & Chateau Commarin

      October 5, 2021 in France ⋅ 🌧 11 °C

      The last day broke off a little more slowly.
      After Luka found his favorite brand of oats at a local supermarket, he was more than happy to have breakfast.
      It was raining on and off the whole day, so we had coffees and just cleaned the Airbnb until we decided to move and drove to the beautiful Chateauneuf with it's castle towering on top of the hill surrounded by houses dating back up until 1000 years ago.
      Impressive and intimidating at once, seeing these structures outlast generations of people.
      After we walked the halls of chateauneuf we found out about another chateau closeby, Chateau Commarin.
      It was just lying a few kilometers down in the valley, so we drove there.
      The rain intensified, so we spared ourselves the recommended walk around the castle and went straight inside.
      People really seemed to have had some nice lives back then - if they had the money that is.
      The lady from the entrance was nice enough to answer a few questions and who would have thought, the owners actually still live there.
      After returning to the Airbnb, we had some snacks and took it easy.
      In the evening we had a resevation at Dr Wine, a restaurant with small tapas like dishes, but made of local cuisine.
      The beuf bourgignonne was to die for and the wines were exquisite.
      They did a really good job on trip advisor apparently, since we found ourselves among other tourists.
      All in all Dijon was a really good choice to stay.
      Maybe in the morning we will go buy some wine and then take off to home.
