Quarry worker’s shifts start early, so while it was still dark, I was waiting for the friendly man I met in the bar to come and bring me my batteries. And after a while he showed up. In a 2CV in light and dark blue that I unfortunately forgot to take a picture of. I thanked him very much for everything and he hurried into the dark to not be too late for work.
In lack of washing facilities I went for a bath in the river in a somewhat less prominent place than the middle of the town and after being refreshed and clean I took the opportunity to see what Nuits has architecturally to offer while most people still sleep.
Noyers has not only a lovely lower city, but also a former fortress which was destroyed during the religious wars on the order of Henri IV (who changed six times between Protestantism and Catholicism himself).
Here I tried to use one of the official (and free) chargers of the region. Which was tricky to do without installing their app or having a charging card. In theory it should work through the phone browser but it did not. Luckily I found a french Tesla driver parking next to me who was kind enough to unlock it with his charging passport for me.
With freshly charged batteries, I went back on the scooter to see another beautiful village and very famous village, Vézelay.
On my way there I passed many beautiful buildings: A church in Civry, the Maison des Goix from the 15th century and the Château de Vault de Lugny, a luxurious hotel and restaurant.
Then I arrived in Vézelay.
