We have just concluded our visit to 10PM and it was difficult to leave. Three beautiful large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms along with a fourth bathroom. It has a gourmet kitchen with high end appliances, granite counter tops, all the pots, plates and wine glasses you would need. It makes cooking a joy. There is a wonderful outdoor patio area with scenic views of vineyards and an enclosed yard for you to use the lounge chairs and relax after wine tasting. This house has air conditioning which is a rarity in France and is a plus during the hot summer months. The location in Puligny Montrachet is walking distance to the most famous white burgundy vineyards; Montrachet, Bartard Montrachet, Chevalier Montrachet, Bienvenues Batard Montrachet and Croits Batard Montrachet. It is a little slice of heaven. Peter and Lucy are always available for answering questions and offering advice on restaurants. We can't wait to return.
