Fantastic stay in Beaune!

  • 5 of 5

Caroline's apartment was perfect. Very well furnished, nice appliances and all the comforts of home. Comfortable bed, great shower, quiet and well located. Park in tight courtyard or on the street. Easy walk to sights and restaurants in Beaune. Stayed for 5 nights of touring Burgundy. One of the best vacation rentals we have ever stayed in. Hope to return someday!

An ideal apartment in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

Staying at La Maison du Couvent was an absolute delight. The apartment is very well-equipped, quiet and conveniently located within easy walking distance of Beaune town center which features a wonderful Saturday market and many good restaurants. It was the perfect location for exploring the rest of Burgundy by car. Max and Caroline were very easy-going and flexible. Apparently I had not asked for a mid-stay change of linens during our two-week stay (normally it is included) but they arranged for it when asked without a problem. Highly recommended!

Stunning place in Beaune

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed staying in this amazingly beautiful and peaceful home. The history of the convent along with a superb designer's renovation--- with every detail attended to-- is perfectly eclectic. What a fancy pad!!! The mix of old and new with ultra-modern appliances and perfect upscale decorating yet old wooden ceilings and floors etc. is something to behold. The beds were the most comfortable ever and the internet fast as can be. Loved the bathroom—so sleek and modern. No wonder a magazine photographer came by one evening to take pictures for an article on the place! We had dinners in the courtyard enjoying the sense of history, and breakfasts upstairs looking out at the city. A great bakery is a short walk away as is the lovely town of Beaune. Walking or biking paths through vineyards and to the next villages are just beyond a shady old park close to the house. Caroline and Max were most gracious and welcoming. It truly was a memorable week here and we hope to come back. Thanks so much for a great vacation!

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Having used HomeAway many times, I can without a doubt tell you all this is the best apartment we have ever rented. It is brand new (we were only the second renters) and it has been done to perfection.

Located in a 400 year old former convent (how cool is that!!) it has been 100% renovated. It oozes charm and atmosphere. Located on the second floor, it also has a private courtyard and lawn area that is massive. The pictures do not do it justice.

Caroline and Max have created a slice of heaven in Burgundy. Caroline's design work displays her serious talent and they have not skimped on anything. There is even Emile Henry bakeware in the incredible and large kitchen. As well as everything else you might need to cook a multi-course meal. And since they have incredible food product in Beaune, this is something you should do.

The shower has both rainwater and detachable showerheads.

The master bed is a king. This very large apartment is beyond reproach.

Oh yeah, the view towards the town will make your heart swoon.

There is not a chance in hell that this place can be beat. We shot a 5 minute video of the place. When was the last time you ever did that in a rental??

Example - on the day of our arrival Max went out and bought a brand new BBQ and placed it in the courtyard ready for use. And that is after we were 2 hours late arriving. Now that is service.

Caroline and Max - thank you for creating this incredible oasis.

We could not have asked for more - you were the perfect hosts.

We only wish we could have stayed for a month, or 6.
