Better than a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

If you are on the fence about booking this apartment - just do it! You won't regret it! We hesitated a bit because we didn't think we needed the larger second story unit with two bedrooms (the first floor unit was already booked), but it ended up being ideal for myself, my wife and our 3 month infant for our one week stay in Burgundy.

This unit is even better and more impressive than the pictures. After having stayed in some funky, bare bones places in Paris and Champagne, it was a total relief to stay in a home that was actually nicer than our own home in LA. It's the perfect blend of historic and modern. It's apparent that the renovation was done with meticulous care and attention to detail. There is fine interior design throughout, to the point that I commented that they had to have hired a designer for this - come to find out that Caroline, the host, works in real estate and historic design and renovations. It shows. There is nothing odd or funky like there is in most rentals; everything is modern, functional and high-end. There is artwork throughout, fine drapery and linens, industrial-chic lighting, a gorgeous and comfortable shower, and brand new appliances in the kitchen. The fridge, oven, microwave and cupboards are all in one modern, sleek unit in the wall. Everything is so clean and modern that we felt like we were the first guests to stay there. The place even smelled lovely when we arrived. The location was also ideal - super quiet at night but a very short walk to town in one direction or to a lovely park and vineyards in the other direction. The bed in the master was huge (king) and very, very firm. Beautiful wood block night stands were on each side of the bed. Sconces in the wall served as the bedside lights, and switches were at both bedsides and as you entered the room. Little details like that were consistent throughout - it was a place I'd love to live in. I also appreciated the comprehensive host book that included maps and myriad recommendations for the region. Caroline was gracious with her time and recommendations for us. This was just the perfect place to spend a week in Burgundy and I would love to return someday.

Large, well equiped and close to town

Everything was as described and shown in photos. Should be aware that you have to climb two flights of stairs to apartment. Great modern kitchen with everything you need. Beds are very comfortable.

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!
