A Charming getaway

Staying at the Joseph Mellot “La Chatellenie” winemaker’s cottage is to experience a pace of life in harmony with nature and tradition. The views of the steep slopes of Sancerre are stunning, as are the pretty little villages nearby. Meander along the ramparts and take in the immensity of the historic winemaking savoir-faire embodied in the landscape, the people, the food and the wine.
