VINEYARDS OF BURGUNDY, FRANCE. We rent out two ancient and charming village houses in winemaking villages ten minutes from the stunning medieval town of Beaune. We also rent out a luxurious apartment in the heart of Beaune itself, which happens to be the epicenter of the wine culture here in Burgundy. These unique properties not only provide you with excellent value for your travel dollar, but facilitate a seamless integration into French life!

All of our properties are fully renovated, and fully equipped and furnished with a charming mix of old and antique furniture:

  • La Maison de la Vieille Vigne - One bedroom, one bathroom village house with private, attached courtyard located in Villers-la-Faye.   To peek in the door just click here.

“After spending three days in Paris and thinking it doesn’t get any better than this, we made our way down to Burgundy. Our arrival to this wonderful cottage and the wine that greeted us sure proved us wrong! We were so impressed at the work and all the TLC put into this little home.”

  • La Maison des Deux Clochers - Two bedroom, one bathroom village house with private garden area located in Magny-les-Villers.  To peek in the door, just click here.

"Your recommendations were right on - Jacky’s was the best food ever! The local colour at the Café de France was priceless and the caves at Patriarche awesome. I can’t even begint o write about your house. I will leave that to the next visit - and there will be one!"

  • Le Relais du Vieux Beaune - Two bedroom, one bathroom apartment in the heart of old town Beaune - the lovely medieval town that is the centre of the winemaking culture in Burgundy.  To peek in the door, just click here.

"The apartment in Paris paled in comparison to Le Relais du Vieux Beaune. Without a doubt that was the best part of our trip! It was so very comfortable and lovely. We hope to be able to come back again and stay there. For us it was perfect..location...ambience...convenience..."

    "Why Burgundy? Because it's underexposed and out of fashion. Because it hasn't yet been discovered by the Eurochic or the mavens of Mediterranean. Because its food is hearty, honest, and linked to the hearth and its wines are delicate and elusive. Because it remains true, even today, to its ancient reputation for good living. Because it's not Provence."

    Andrews Colman, SAVEUR MAGAZINE / November  98
