Sleep in the Shadow of the Dukes…
And, walk to “Les Halles” the famous Dijon Food Market. “My Home in Dijon” is a charming, very large (484 sq ft./45 sq metres) studio apartment with a separate kitchen that we lovingly restored to meet the expectations of the most demanding of guests. Dijon is the jewel of Burgundy and is easily accessible by TGV train from Paris or by motorway A31 or A6.
This beautiful, centrally located apartment is on the first floor (second floor U.S.) of a 17th century mansion. Despite its central location, the apartment is very quiet and peaceful as it faces a courtyard. You will sleep like baby.
The apartment consists of a sleeping area with a comfortable queen size bed, a dining area and a living area complete with flat screen TV (200 international channels) and an desk with a computer with broadband access and free Wi-Fi. The telephone is unblocked and you have free landline access to 100 countries (excluding cell phone numbers).
The separate windowed kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, microwave and mini oven, a gas/electric cook top and a washer-dryer. Open the cabinets and you will find a complete set of dishes, glassware and pots and pans along with a toaster, electric kettle, coffeemaker and a blender.
The bathroom contains a washbasin and a bathtub with overhead shower and glass shower door. It is equipped with a hair dryer and a flat iron, bathrobes and an assortment of toiletries. The toilet and a second washbasin with mirror are located in a separate room making it easy for two people to get dressed in the morning. There are two large closets for your belongings. Air conditioning in the main room.
You'll be within walking distance to nearly all Dijon has to offer. It takes 2/3 min on foot to go to the tourist office in the ducal palace (entrance in rue des Forges), 5/6 min to the covered market 'les Halles' 3 min to St Michel and Notre Dame churches, restaurants, brasseries all around. The Fine Arts and Magnin museums are a few steps away. Transportation nearby (buses, taxis, velodi)
The train station is a 15min walk if you wish to go to Beaune by train (or bus). It will be my pleasure to collect you at the train station so you don't have to walk, take a bus or a taxi to the apartment.
We try our very best to make your stay as comfortable as it can possibly be right down to the provisions provided free of charge on your arrival (tea, coffee, bread, butter, jam, eggs, ham, milk, cereal, orange juice and bottled water). We will even meet you at the station if you come by train. The minimum stay is 2 nights but since it makes a full day only, you will only scratch the surface of this beautiful town! And there are so many other little towns or villages to discover like Beaune, Vezelay all the wine coast villages with great names if you like wine (Gevrey Chambertin, Fixin, Chambolle Musigny, Vougeot, Morey St Denis, Nuits st Georges...)
As one of our recent guests said in our guest book: “We have thoroughly enjoyed our few days in Dijon. Not only did we have a beautiful apartment to stay in, but Dijon is a wonderful town. After a long trip and staying in hotels in big cities, My home in Dijon has provided the break we needed! Thank you Coco for your hospitality and the excellent tour at the beginning of our stay. Carolyn and Jeremy (Sydney)
To summarize, a good friend of mine from Pittsburgh who stayed at 'my home in Dijon' said to me: 'What's especially nice about your flat: Great location. Bright and 'airy' feel to it, and it's spacious. The floor plan, layout is super. In historic area/building yet has modern conveniences Probably first and foremost, your approach to being a landlord: you do make it seem as though the 'renter' is a welcomed guest in your apartment.'
