Gîte & Bed & Breakfast

We offer a unique form of accommodation in the Yonne area in the immediate proximity of the Morvan Regional Natural Park.

Two genuine caravans have now retired near the old train station in Guillon following a very busy life travelling with carnivals and touring with a circus.

Sheltered by ancient trees, lime and box, the caravans now replace the trains which used to pass by here between 1875 and 1965.

Before they start their new life as Bed & Breakfast in l'Astrance and gîte in La Vraie, they have been refurbished to a very high specification.

The caravans : a history

La Vraie first travelled with its first owner, attending carnivals, then toured Europe with a contemporary circus, QueCirQue; housing Jean-Paul and Laurence, it traveled thousand of miles going through capital cities and small villages: Salzburg, Karlsruhe, Hamburg, Prague, Pilzen, Charleroi , London, Lisbon, Toulouse, La Rochelle and ... Castillon-la-Bataille. La Vraie eventually reached the end of the road with QueCirQue last show in nearby Avallon.

On the other hand, l'Astrance had quite a different story; It also initially belonged to a travelling showman and was purchased to house Jean-Paul and Laurence new family. As the caravan is on the large size (11m) it can accommodate two large bedrooms and a bathroom.
