Excellent luxury self-catering property

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay in this excellent self-catering property in Puligny-Montrachet. The house has been lovingly renovated and is presented beautifully. The location is excellent for exploring the Cote d'Or and has an excellent local boulangerie within easy walking distance. Quality of communication from Peter and Lucy is absolutely first class. The house website and guest only section is well conceived and very informative. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property.

Lovely house with a super location

This super property exceeded our expectations. Situated right in the historic centre of Tournus and yet within walking distance of the banks of the Saone. A lovely base from which to explore the region.
