Your guest house

David Jolun and his team are delighted to welcome you to a pleasant and relaxing stay at the hotel “Au Soleil d'Or”.

This is an ideal place to unwind: come and enjoy the heated swimming pool in the large, wooded garden or take a simple stroll in the village of Pontaubert with its Templars’ church (former commandery of the Knights Hospitaller of St John of Jerusalem) and famous Cousin valley.

For one night or longer, a stop in Vézelay to discover the Eternal Hill is a “must” during your stay at Hôtel Au Soleil d’Or. Lying on the Way of St James, between heaven and earth, come and visit Vézelay and its basilica. For the beauty of the location, its heritage and the surrounding landscape, this is said to be one of the prettiest villages in France.

The location of Hôtel Au Soleil d’Or at the entrance to Morvan national park allows you to benefit from its ideal position for a stroll around Avallon or a visit to the many castles including Bazoches – residence of Vauban – and the many lakes and other sites. If these are not enough for you, Guédelon Castle and Fontenay Abbey are also nearby.

As a couple, with friends or for a residential seminar: get away from it all, stroll through the vineyards of Vézelay, Chablis or Irancy, sample the local wines, walk the trails of Morvan national park with its myriad of lakes… a guaranteed escape!

For extended family gatherings, the entire hotel can be hired privately as a gîte. Please get in touch for any price enquiries.
