Yonne guesthouses & B&Bs
We have not been able
to find a single source for booking quality small guesthouses and Bed
and Breakfasts on the web. However, the Yonne bike route does have this
type of accommodation and you can access information via Google Maps by
typing in "Chambre d'Hote" or "Bed and Breakfast" when you have a map
of the area open on your screen. Gites de France also offer Chambres d'Hote on their website - they are the blue dots when you get to village level on their map.
Otherwise, if you prefer to stay in accommodation of this type then we suggest that you (in this order):
- use Hotels.com
- look at the web sites of the villages you are interested in (see the table in our Yonne Bike Guide)
- Google "Bed and Breakfast" or "Chambre d'Hote" plus the name of the Yonne town/village in question.
Yonne apartments & gites
Generally you need to
book an apartment for 3 or more days, probably a week in high season,
but for a family with young children this can be a great way of enjoying
the area. If you choose an apartment in one of the larger places such
as Auxerre or even tiny Cravant, then with a little planning you could
use the trains to get back at the end of each day's ride and so avoid
having to carry luggage.
Gites provide rural
accommodation that is often of a very high standard and is a good option
for anyone wanting a peaceful, countryside base. Gites de France offer a comprehensive service covering the whole country but you can also book similar properties from the websites in the Yonne Bike Guide.
We are not experts on campsites but there are a number beside the rivers and canals of the Yonne. EuroCamping offers campsites in all these areas.
