Imagine living in your very own Burgundian winemaker's house in the heart of one of the best wine regions in the world. Imagine a spacious home, lovingly renovated by the owners in conjunction with a fantastic architect and highly experienced local artisans. Imagine the perfect balance between authenticity and modern luxury so that you have a true Burgundian experience in deep comfort.
Imagine an enormous terrace on which to sit and watch the world go by, a large, secluded garden for relaxing and sun bathing and your own small vineyard at the back to inspect and observe wine growing at close quarters.
This is 10pm.
Our home is close to the tourist action in Beaune etc but nestled in peace, quiet and luxury amidst the best white wine vineyards in the world - now with the added charm of being within a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Having said this, it is also within walking distance of two Michelin-starred restaurants, wine bars (one "the best Chardonnay wine bar. Ever." according to some very knowledgeable guests!), and excellent bistros where the local winemakers and growers eat, drink and are merry.
The house is very traditional, having belonged to a winemaker in the past, with oak flooring throughout, Burgundian stone and "enduit" and original features. But the plumbing, the kitchen amenities and the size and comfort of the beds are very up to date!
The whole property consists of the Main House and the Little House which were originally a family house and its granny annex, separated by a very thick Burgundian stone wall, so well insulated from each other (and the cold/heat).
You can take the Main House (three double bedrooms, each with en suite) in the knowledge that you will have EXCLUSIVE use of the house, the gardens and the patio/terrace areas. We will not let the Little House to anyone else if you are staying in the Main House.
If you are a larger party, there is also the potential to rent its equally spacious, completely self contained, 'Little House' (sleeps four additional guests in two double bedrooms with one shared bathroom). This has its own listing, #8127278, or just contact us to sort out your booking.
10pm was completely renovated to offer luxury accommodation, combining original features with modern facilities, including some very atypical plumbing (ie powerful 'Raindance' showers)! And we "refresh" 10pm every year to keep it looking good throughout.
We like to be comfortable, with lots of space, large beds, luxury bedding and mattresses, a kitchen made for entertaining and the rest of it. This is our holiday home, so it includes all of the features that we love.
Our architect is obsessed with getting the greatest amount of natural light into a home as she can possibly manage, and she has managed this particularly well! This adds to the feeling of light and space in both properties.
See the details of the accommodation below and the photos of our lovely holiday home in Burgundy. We have included two photos of the Little House just as a taster... but there are many more photos of the Little House on listing #8127278
As an extra treat, we have connections with wine makers, and experts in the area who may be able to offer you, at a modest cost and as convenient for you, a completely bespoke experiences and consultations on your voyage of discovery...
They can help you to organise visits to special wineries, private wine tastings in the house accompanied by the finest local food, inside information on the best restaurants to suit all budgets, fun wine education sessions etc.
But this is your choice. You will be equally happy if you want to run under your own steam.
Three spacious double bedrooms, each with a King (Queen in the US) bed, with deeply comfortable mattresses and classic décor. Each bedroom is individually designed to reflect a season of the year in Burgundy and contains both antiques and original art.
Each bedroom has its own luxury en suite shower room with Hansgrohe "Raindance shower heads (a wand and a fixed head). It is like bathing in warm rain in our pre-softened water!
A separate family bathroom, overlooking the vines, with a cast iron roll top bath and stone and marble tiling.
A large open plan, bright (South facing) living room with a fully fitted American-style modern kitchen. We have designed this space with conviviality in mind so that you can cook and interact with friends at the same time or share a wine tasting at the central island. Extra little luxuries include the wine fridge, the Krups espresso coffee maker and also the filter coffee maker.
The dining table in the Main House can seat up to 10.
There is a very large private terrace just outside the front door with a large table and chairs, plus a bistro style table where you can relax and have an outdoor meal, a quiet aperitif in the evening or simply watch the village life go by or gaze over the Montrachet vineyards. And if the sun gets too hot, there are sunshades too.
The garden is large, verdant, peaceful and totally private. It provides both sun and shady spots as you wish. Two large bistro-style garden tables and 10 chairs, eight comfortable recliners, a large 'bistro' sun shade and outdoor lighting are there for guests' use.
To the rear of our house is our small vineyard - the 'vininch' as we like to call it. It boasts the only red grapes in the village (those of you who are into your wine will know the reason for that!!).
There are laundry and ironing facilities, a secure storage space for your wine, and secure off street parking.
We have WiFi broadband and sound system and a (very discrete) television! Get to know each other again instead of using all that kit... Or use your wireless devices to pick your own web based entertainment.
The central heating keeps it warm in winter and the very thick walls keep it cool in the summer and quiet all year round.
We also have a combined heating/cooling air conditioning system through which guests can control the temperature in each individual room.
What makes 10pm one of the best places to stay in the Beaune area? Comfort, conviviality and location!
What makes Puligny Montrachet one of the best places to stay in Burgundy? Wine-village life, good amenities, not choc full of tourists, some of the very best wine makers in the world, access to so many other places!
We have designed and created 10pm for ourselves, our family and our friends. We want to attract guests who will feel completely at home and appreciate the care we have put into making their stay as excellent as possible.
