About the property

Former wine domaine, 4 stars, large beds, 3 bedrooms ell ensuite

On a former wine maker's property, the whole of the "Maison de Maître" is available for holidays or business trips, and has a been accredited 4 stars by Côte d'Or Tourisme.

L'Ancien Domain offers spacious accommodation, providing 3 individually decorated bedrooms each with their own private bathroom. The comfy large new beds can also be separated into single beds if desired. All linens are of a high thread count and are professionally laundered.

The ensuites all have good showers, each with 2 shower heads, and the larger one also has a bath and twin sinks. The house has a non chemical or salt water softener.

On the ground floor there is an extra WC, kitchen, separate dining room, and two sitting rooms - one an informal TV room and the other more formal for games, reading, meetings or an aperitif before dinner. You have space to live and not be on top of each other.

The kitchen is well equipped and there are extra, good, wine glasses and crockery for more formal dining.

The TV is a large flat screen TV with TNT satellite channels, a DVD player and selection of DVDs in various languages. There is also a JBL bluetooth speaker to listen to your own music from internet radio, and some indoor games.

Wifi is available and free.

The house has retained many original features such as "tommettes", solid wood flooring, crystal chandeliers, porch glass marquise, marble fireplace.

It is centrally heated with an additional real flame gas fire in the formal sitting room which provides instant heat and ambience without the wait or cleaning.

Front and back entrances to the house allow separate access if needed.

Secure off-road parking is in the courtyard and can take several cars.

The large courtyard has planted areas and provides good shade on hot days. Al fresco dining is on a wrought iron garden suite and outdoor games include table tennis, skittles and pétanque. There are also some loungers to lie out in the sun, and herbs and fig trees that you can help yourself to. Living next to the house, the courtyard has not been planted for ease of maintenance but to provide a variety of flowers and herbs, with something to see nearly all year round.

L’Ancien Domaine is located at the edge of a quiet village (which has essential shops), next to the countryside but only 5 mins from Beaune, Pommard, Volnay and Meursault.

A meal from a caterer for arrival day can be arranged for you with prior notice. Please contact us for details.

We welcome pets with and there is no extra supplement for this.

Taxe de Sejour, bedding, towels, heating, and between guest cleaning are all included in our tarif. We also place many kitchen and bathroom essentials in the house to help guests (such as oil, salt, pepper, sugar, loo roll, etc).

We live in another building on the property and we have our own separate outdoor spaces. We are available for all assistance and offer a free concierge service, but will otherwise leave you alone. Think of us as your friendly neighbour.

If only 2 persons wish to stay, there is a possibility, on late availability or in low season, to block off half the house (still leaving the kitchen and tv room and extra WC) and offer a reduced rate. Ask us for a quote.

If you have a specific request or any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

Personal wine tours in English with a wine professional can be arranged with notice and also water colour painting courses with a renowned local artist. Please contact us for info.

CHILDREN - We recently redecorated to provide good quality furnishings and finishes, whilst retaining the original charm of this old house. There are low windows upstairs and hard floors. It has not been safety adapted for young children, nor is there equipment for them, nor do we allow you to install your own safety equipment. We do not recommend our gite for children under 8 years old.

L'Ancien Domaine has been accepted into the "Vignobles et Découverte" and "Sawday's" programmes.

Why Mrs Boursot chose Bligny-lès-Beaune

We are excellently placed to visit all the Cote de Beaune villages and access the Cote de Nuits without having a long trek back. We are also an easy and very quick drive away from the motorway if you would like to visit a bit further afield.

Beaune Coté Plage is 5 minutes away for outdoor swimming in natural pools.

What makes this house unique

We know our wines and the gite is an excellent location for wine lovers.

There are some herbs planted around the house and a fig tree - guests are welcome to use them.

Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous property hidden in a lovely small village, run by a super nice couple. You cannot go wrong staying here. First, the old house has been completely remodeled and no expense was spared in bringing new life to the structure. Tastefully decorated and well equipped (not with just glassware, but elegant glassware befitting of the local wine), this house comfortably fits 3 couples. Very centrally located, it was an easy and short drive to Beaune and many other famous villages. The village itself has the basics of what you need and a bike is included for your morning baguette run. Owners are a wonderful resource for local activities and recommendations and cannot be nicer or more attentive.

Très belle demeure de charme, idéalement située

  • 5 of 5

Tout d'abord, merci à la propriétaire très attentionnée : la maison correspondait parfaitement à nos attentes. Trois grandes chambres avec salle de bain/WC individuels, des pièces à vivre très agréables, le tout dans un état de fraicheur ... comme neuf !

Ensuite l'emplacement : nous étions là pour faire de l'oenotourisme et la maison est idéalement placée, à quelques minutes de Beaune, proche de Pommard, Volnay, etc ...

Bref, je ne peux que recommander !!!
