On to Couches

Farewell to Santenay, with its lovely architecture!

And on to Couches, where we visit the Domaine of the Chateau of Marguerite de Bourgogne. Present owner Manu Cayot is quite the card and his grandparents did a really great job of restoring what they could of the former castle; after the Revolution, many of these old places essentially became stone quarries for the local builders, so it's not always possible to do a complete restoration.
