THE HOMEAWAY QUOTES FOR STAYS OF LESS THAN A WEEK ARE INCORRECT. THE AVERAGE DAILY RATE REDUCES THE LONGER YOU STAY DUE TO SETUP AND CLEANING COSTS BEING FIXED!
A very spacious, old vigneron's house (sleeps either up to six or up to 10 - see below) in the very heart of wine making country, in Puligny Montrachet, near Beaune, Burgundy.
The whole property consists of two units which were originally a family house and its granny annex, separated by a very thick Burgundian stone wall, so well insulated from each other (and the cold/heat).
From Spring to Autumn (inclusive) the Main House (three double en suite bedrooms) can be rented on its own in the knowledge that you will have exclusive use of the house, the gardens and the patio/terrace areas. We will not let the Little House to anyone else if you are staying in the Main House.
If you are a larger party, there is also the potential to rent its equally spacious, completely self contained, 'Little House' (sleeps four additional guests in two double bedrooms with one shared bathroom, see the separate tab).
Both were completely renovated in 2011/12 to offer luxury accommodation, combining original features with modern facilities, including some very atypical plumbing (ie powerful 'Raindance' showers)!!
Our architect is obsessed with getting the greatest amount of natural light into a home as she can possibly manage, and she has managed this particularly well! This adds to the feeling of light and space in both properties.
See the details of the accommodation below and the photos of our lovely holiday home in Burgundy. Please note that photos of the Little House are towards the bottom of the photo gallery.
As an extra treat, we have connections with wine makers, and experts in the area who may be able to offer you, at a modest cost and as convenient for you, a completely bespoke experiences and consultations on your voyage of discovery...
They can help you to organise visits to special wineries, private wine tastings in the house accompanied by the finest local food, inside information on the best restaurants to suit all budgets, fun wine education sessions etc.
But this is your choice. You will be equally happy if you want to run under your own steam.
The main house, which we completed in early 2012 comprises:
Three spacious double bedrooms with deeply comfortable mattresses and modern décor, each with a luxury en suite shower room. Each bedroom is individually designed to reflect a season of the year in Burgundy.
A separate family bathroom, overlooking the vines, with a cast iron roll top bath and stone and marble tiling.
A large open plan, bright living room with a fully fitted American-style modern kitchen. We have designed this space with conviviality in mind so that you can cook and interact with friends at the same time or share a wine tasting at the central island. Extra little luxuries include the wine fridge and the Krups espresso coffee maker.
There is a very large private terrace just outside the front door with a large table and chairs where you can relax and have an outdoor meal, a quiet aperitif in the evening or simply watch the village life go by.
The garden is large, verdant, peaceful and totally private. It provides both sun and shady spots asyou wish. A mosaic garden table and six chairs, two deck chairs (soon to be more) and outdoor lighting are there for guests' use.
To the rear of our house is our small vineyard - the 'vininch' as we like to call it. It boasts the only red grapes in the village (those of you who are into your wine will know the reason for that!!).
There are laundry and ironing facilities, a secure storage space for your wine, and off street parking.
We have WiFi broadband and sound system and NO television! Get to know each other again instead... Or use your wireless devices to pick your own web based entertainment.
The central heating keeps it warm in winter and the very thick walls keep it cool in the summer and quiet all year round.
The Little House - completed in late 2012
The Little House (which is not so little!) is available to rent as an addition to the main house from spring to autumn. It may be available separately in winter when the gardens will not be in use, depending on circumstances. It comprises:
Two modern and spacious double bedrooms with deeply comfortable mattresses and unique décor. The rooms in this house reflect French-speaking countries, Mali, Senegal, Tunisia...
A fully up to date bathroom with a spacious and powerful 'Raindance' walk-in shower.
A large and airy through living/dining room with views over both our vineyard at the back, and the front terrace.
A separate fully fitted modern kitchen also with views over our vineyard.
What makes 10pm one of the best places to stay in the Beaune area? Comfort, conviviality and location!
What makes Puligny Montrachet one of the best places to stay in Burgundy? Wine-village life, good amenities, not choc full of tourists, some of the very best wine makers in the world, access to so many other places!
We have designed and created 10pm for ourselves, our family and our friends. We want to attract guests who will feel completely at home and appreciate the care we have put into making their stay as excellent as possible.
