We have spent the first week of our honeymoon in France at Claude and Michelles gite next to their house. It is well appointed and has all the things you need for a relaxing holiday . The kitchen looks small when you first see it but the microwave , dishwasher and versatile small cooker are all that 2 people need. The garden at the back is huge . Plenty of open and shaded areas under the trees . We were given figs from the garden, home made damson jam and a bottle of cremant on arrival. The covered area outside the front door is great for eating out and much wine drinking . . We were taken so much by the electric barbecue that we have bought one to take home with us . Didn't travel far except for one day visit to Nyon and Geneva in Switzerland to see Lac Leman again and the two houses my daughter has previously lived in. The abbaye at Cluny not far away is worth a visit and the Sunday market at Chagny is a must. All in all a very good place for a week in Burgundy. Merci beaucoup Michelle et Claude maintenant le grandpere et la grandmere. A bientot!
From the moment I first inquired about a stay at 10pm, Peter and Lucy were the most gracious hosts. They have compiled so much helpful information about the home, nearby restaurants, things to do, and the area in general, that 10pm was a sure choice.
Booking was a breeze and, though we were not in town early enough, Peter and Lucy offered us the option of checking in early as the previous guests had gone the day before. When we did check in, Monia met us to give us the keys and a tour of the house. She speaks French but any questions are answered quite fully in the guestbook in the house. (really everything, even how to work the oven – complete with pictures). And we were met with the sweetest welcome basket and a bottle of wine. It’s those touches that made our stay feel like we were at home immediately upon arrival. And Peter called straight away to make sure everything was going smoothly.
The house is absolutely gorgeous. We were two couples traveling together so it was important that each of us had our privacy, while also having general areas to congregate. 10pm fit the bill perfectly. Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom with shower, sink, and toilet. (Towels, linens, and essentials provided). There’s also an additional bathroom with a beautiful claw foot tub for soaking. The spacious and well equipped modern kitchen and open living room area could be closed off to the two “back” bedrooms by a door. This provided and extra buffer from the shared space for any late sleepers. There was locked parking inside the gate, although the street parking was easy right in front of the house and perfectly safe.
The house was exceptionally clean, everything in great working order and Peter and Lucy have absolutely thought of everything! The views from the windows, or outside on the stunning terrace, or inside the lovely gardens – heaven. You are in your own wonderful sanctuary in this little town in the midst of Burgundy’s best vines. Add in two fantastic hosts and I’m not sure what more you could want!
I’d go back to Burgundy in a heartbeat, and I’d stay at 10pm without question.
