Burgundy & local attractions: But do not think that Burgundy is reserved solely for wine connoisseurs and lovers of art and architecture. Visitors have a choice of activities as varied as the region's landscapes. With so much to see and do in this year-round destination, one stay is never enough! The so called 'Land of Art and Good Living', Burgundy offers you prestigious vineyards and wines, historical cities, famous sites (many World Heritage), golf and an interesting walking and cycling network, all within a well preserved natural setting.
You will find maps, tourist information and inspiration in our apartment, and the tourist office in Beaune can provide all the information you need to make your stay at 3 Clos de Pommard a truly memorable one. Our property management team will be pleased to assist you with web links and further information about the region.
Local attractions: The medieval town of Beaune, once the home of the Dukes of Burgundy, offers some of the regions most appreciated historic attractions, including the Hospice de Beaune, Europe's first charity hospital built in 1443. Excellent restaurants abound. The Saturday morning market in Beaune is not to be missed. For those enjoying outdoor activities, the region offers wonderful hiking and biking trails, some that run right through our village of Pommard.
Our property offers two quiet, comfortable bedrooms, both with queen size beds, one full bathroom, and a half bath that provides a second toilet and sink. Our kitchen is fully stocked with cookware fit for a chef.

About Carolyn and Ken Thompson
Imagine two young, aspiring musicians, growing up 25 miles from one another in the USA. One summer they are each sent to perform in the great concert halls and cathedrals of Europe. They meet and speak to one another for the first time on the steps of Notre Dame de Paris –– the beginnings of a life-long love story, with each other, with a way of life, and with France! Since 2005 we have owned this, our lovely second home, in the Burgundian wine village of Pommard. Each year has brought an ever-increasing respect for and connection to the people and culture of this remarkable place, the most celebrated and complex wine region on earth. In essence, our desire to make this property available for others to enjoy was born out of a desire to share our knowledge and love of Burgundy with those who seek something more than a generic travel experience.
Carolyn and Ken Thompson purchased this apartment in 2005
