The bike route is a figure
of eight with Auxerre, the largest town on the route, at the centre.
The local railway system follows three quarters of the route. The major
part of the tour follows beautiful rivers and canals (and so is
reasonably flat) before going up into the hills between Auxerre and
Chablis past a number of specialist wineries until you reach the world
famous Chablis wine region.
Accommodation is plentiful
but, given the popularity of this area, finding somewhere to stay at
short notice can be difficult in high summer.
The accommodation column below provides an indication of the number of
hotels or similar in each village/town. The first column in the table
shows the main route in blue to the west, green south east and red to the north east and is the same as the coloured route on the Yonne Map .
Few: 1 or 2
Some: 3 to 6
- Many: 7 or more
