In the heart of the Côte-d’Or wine region, these two charming houses are a wine-lovers dream. With views of surrounding vineyards and some of the region’s most idyllic wine-making villages nearby, this is the perfect place to enjoy this part of beautiful Burgundy.
You may choose to rent just one of these two 18th century homes or together they make a fine base for up to ten guests. First of all, La Grappe d’Or offers a sweet two-bedroom air-conditioned abode over three levels including a cosy and characterful top-floor bedroom with a bath under the wood-beamed eaves. A sleek, well-equipped kitchen opens up to a charming living and dining room and added touches such as exposed bricks and original flooring adds to the sense of history around you.
The second house, Les Vignobles, was formerly the wine-makers home and can now sleep up to six guests across three air-conditioned bedrooms. Comfortable sofas face a warming fireplace whilst the modern kitchen combines contemporary design with original features. The three bedrooms are sumptuous and each have their own ensuite bath or shower room.
Outside, just by Les Vignobles, there is a glorious heated swimming pool with splendid views across the surrounding Burgundy vineyards of this idyllic area. Guests have private access to the swimming pool no matter which house they are staying in; the other house will not be booked if you only rent one of the homes. If you’re a large group staying in both houses then this is the perfect spot for guests to gather together, dip into the heated pool and then share a glass of local wine on the terrace with such spectacular vistas.
Here you are in the heart of the famous Côte de Beaune wine-growing region, with the wonderful town of Beaune just a 25-minute drive away. Closer to home you can discover some of the villages along the Route des Grands Crus such as nearby Puligny-Montrachet, only 2km away, and others including Pommard, Volnay and Meursault.
The town of Chagny (7km) is lovely place for cycling or walking along the canal or soaking up the atmosphere at the delightful Sunday morning market. Food-lovers will also appreciate the 100-year old restaurant with 3 Michelin stars or try one of the very many Michelin starred establishments nearer to Beaune and its surrounding villages. Both Dijon and Cluny are also within an hours drive, both remarkable and historical places to visit during your time in Burgundy.
Guests of Les Vignobles d’Or will have access to a range of wonderful services during their stay from breakfast to a traditional cook as well as a wine list, not to mention prestige meals in some of the finest local vineyards. You can hire bikes, a private driver or even arrange hot-air balloon rides, a spectacular way to see the landscapes of this stunning region.
