Farm house in Bernon

This is the snail farm Hameau Aux Escargot in Bernon, France which also has some Gites (holiday homes). www.hameau-aux-escargots.fr/uk/index.htm

 

"Only 20 minutes from Chablis, Bernon is an ideal gastronomic venue where those who love nature and heritage will be able to refresh themselves in the surrounding forests or improve themselves in the cradle of the Middle Ages.

 

Bernon was founded in the Roman period and was used as a fortification on a Gallo-Roman road.

 

In the Middle Ages, Jeanne d'Arc (Joan of Arc) is believed to have come to meditate in Bernon church, founded in the 12th century.

 

The first traces of La Fontaine farm can be found on a plan drawn in around 1630 which can be seen at the Aube Department Archives in Troyes."
