A magnificent medieval village listed among the most beautiful villages of France, Noyers reveals its charm as you wander its cobbled streets. Lovers of authentic places rub shoulders with connoisseurs of regional gastronomy. Nestling in a bend in the River Serein, its winemaking culture is evidenced by the many cellar entrances opening onto the streets.

The village's identity is also shaped by its prosperous agriculture, and in fact it's named after the word "nux" (nut). Every autumn, the Burgundy truffle markets in the arcades of the village centre are filled with stalls selling delicious artisanal products. Art also has pride of place in this charming community, and a number of artists and craftspeople have opened stores in this exceptional setting.

It's a pleasure to explore its cobbled streets, lined by many half-timbered houses. Some are adorned with wonderful carved figures, while other still have their arches. Be sure to stop in front of the House of Corporations or the House of Schematism. There are other period residences to admire, especially around the charming villages squares such as Place de l'Hôtel de Ville, Place de la Petite Étape aux Vins or Place du Grenier à Sel.

Don't miss the old castle site either, with its towers, pleasant walk and belvedere. In the medieval museum, you can visit the ramparts tower and its 13th-century fortified enclosure, as well as a weapons room and a collection of armour. At the very top, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the village.

The Museum of Naïve and Folk Arts, housed in a former 17th-century college with remarkable architecture, contains one of the most important collections in Yonne. Over time, it has grown to include eclectic objects and paintings by anonymous artists and more famous ones. An unusual and poetic experience with a sense of humour.

The Serein, a peaceful river that flows through the village, completes the sweet harmony of the place. The character of this well-preserved and authentic part of the world is sure to delight photographers in search of holiday snaps!
