Fodor's Review

Retired farmer Claude Brodard began building his chambres d'hôte (bed-and-breakfast) in an old stable, bucolically enshrined just south of Auxerre, almost 20 years ago, and the cozy, comfortable, reasonably priced rooms overlook his fields. Château de Laborde is the smallest, sunniest, and most intimate room. Homemade preserves—cassis, quince, and carrot—are served at breakfast.

Lovely, Clean, Comfortable, and Unique!

We had a restful and happy stay here with our two kids (9 and 11). M. Brodard has done an extraordinary job transforming his property and is both welcoming and attentive, but not interfering. And being able to walk to La Chamaille for riverside gourmet dinners is a huge bonus!

French Immersion Made Easy

What a wonderful spot! We stayed here our first 4 nights of a recent 3 week vacation in France (October 2002). Our upstairs room was lovely, simply furnished but charming, of a good size, with a large, well-tiled bathroom and a wonderful casement window overlooking beautifully manicured grounds. A former stable? Yep -- but it's so beautifully made over into a very comfortable inn with 21st century comfort that it's hard to imagine. M. Brodard

was a courteous and very helpful host, and indeed, his confitures were a delight: at least two fresh, different samples each morning. This is a very special spot, and a great location from which to explore northern Burgundy.
