Quarre Les Tombes (Yonne)
Quarré-les-Tombes, is a lively village situated on the top of a hill dominated by a 16th century church. Surrounding the church are a large number of sarcophagi, the origin of which is still a mystery and which gives the village its name.
The superb 'boulangerie' offers a great selection of breads (the brown walnut bread is lovely if you like that kind of thing) pastries, fantastic fruit tarts and gateaux and a brilliant selection of homemade jams, chutneys and preserves. Check out the 'oignon' chutney. Yummy!! Expect to queue – it is very popular.
Next door is the award winning 'chocolatier' - a sight to behold especially at Easter. Need we say more -indulge! An excellent delicatessen serves local cheeses, gorgeous pates, cooked meats, oils and olives. Great lunchtime food with crusty french bread. The 'boucherie' offers a full range of high quality meat. Not cheap but very good. Order your freshly spit roasted chickens from him.
On Sundays and Tuesdays there is a small produce market with salamis, cheeses, eggs, wines and home-grown fruit and vegetables. Two small grocers provide all your everyday needs like milk and loo rolls! Of course, their wine department occupies a large part of the shop.
There are two excellent restaurants, 'Le Morvan' and 'Le hotel du Nord'. Between them they offer you an opportunity to relish the great food and wine of Burgundy with prices for a 3 course meal from 15 – 45 Euros a head. Check out the 'crème brulee' at 'Le Morvan' – exquisite!
Several traditional bars offer beer, wine, coffee and 'tabac' and the chance to do the 'sitting on the pavement watching the world go by' scenario. What are holidays for?
Quarré Les Tombes really does provide for all your culinary and beverage requirements. Enjoy
