Medieval city


In the heart of Burgundy, 2 hours from Paris, the medieval city of Noyers-sur-Serein, classified among the "Most Beautiful Villages of France", combines the discovery of a remarkable architectural heritage with the pleasures of a living city.

There are half-timbered houses, ashlars, pillars and pinnacles. There are a lot of lanes and small squares made of chalky and granitic pavements. There are towers surrounded by the river Serein loops. This is why "Noyers la Médiévale" is called "one of the most beautiful villages of France".

During the day or night, while walking along the main street, no one would be surprised to see riders, peasants, burghers or scholars passing by. No one would be surprised to cross the funny face of a Burgundian of yesteryear. It would be easy to hear a minstrel’s song coming out of one of the eighteen towers standing along the ramparts.

Nowadays during the summer, young Japanese musicians play Brahms, Schubert or Chopin. Troubadours are gone…Noyers is a magic city where modernism and naïve art can be found as well as the Middle Ages.
