Perfection in Beaune

  • 5 of 5

This review is very late in coming - a case of my husband thought I had reviewed it, and I thought he did. We stayed in this beautiful apartment June 13th thru June 20, 2015. We were looking through photos of our trip recently due to planning another European vacation - and were transported back to our wonderful stay in Beaune. From the moment we arrived in The Secret Garden (a perfect name for it!) we were in love - with both the space, and the owners. They could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The apartment and surrounding pool, multi-patio area - spotless and beautiful. The apartment was spacious and lovely - and at the risk of repeating myself, spotlessly clean. It was very well equipped and we could not have been happier there. We rented bikes and biked thru the vineyards. We had rented another house in Beaune a couple of years earlier (which was nice but cannot compare with The Secret Garden) with our daughter and son-in-law and did the bike ride with them, and knew we wanted to return and do that again. It did not disappoint. You bike thru villages, stop for a wine tasting, enjoy the beautiful scenery ...... great way to spend the day! The Secret Garden is also within easy walking distance of everything - and the Old Town of Beaune is lovely. We revisited restaurants we had gone to with our daughter and son-in-law, our favorite being Le Goret, which was delicious and fun. Many great restaurants in town and the surrounding area. But we also cooked a couple of times, enjoying the market close by (5 minutes by car) and the patio right outside our kitchen door. We did have a rental car (nice, private parking within a secure area) and explored the gorgeous surrounding area. Lots to see and do - or - just relax by the pool and hope that Jocelyn cooks up some of her delicious appetizers and shares with you! She is an amazing cook - also whipped us up a wonderful cocktail involving champagne :) We would definitely not hesitate to recommend this property to friends/family. (The latest date this allowed me was June 2016, but - we stayed on the above mentioned dates - one year sooner)

One of Burgundy's Best!

  • 5 of 5

This is an ideal place to make your home base for day trips throughout the Burgundy countryside. The apartment has its own separate entrance which lies behind the walls of the secret garden where your car is also securely parked. The property is literally across the street from the entrance to the walled city of Beaune, which is a beautiful old world french village. It's an easy day trip to Dijon, which is a much larger city, but we preferred the atmosphere in Beaune. The apt has a sunny living room, private bedroom and full bath with tub & shower. The water pressure is very good. The kitchen is euro (small) but functional and the wifi works really well! The hosts, Jean-Jacques, Jocelyn and their son Jean-Charles were very gracious and really fun! They gave us terrific recommendations for dining, sight seeing, and places to visit along countryside roads through the villages of the Burgundy Wine Road. We enjoyed the Beaune museums and would recommend this location for anyone who wants a relaxing vacation in a beautiful setting of a walled French Village. We did notice the restaurants in Beaune do not stay open as late as they do in Lyon & Paris, so plan to dine a bit earlier. However, you will be rewarded with excellent cuisine, safe streets, friendly people and a gorgeous night time art exhibit that projects moving images on the walls of local landmarks for a night time light show that is spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting here and will be recommending it to our friends who plan to visit Burgundy. Thank you Jean-Jacques, Jocelyn & Jean-Charles for a terrific visit to Beaune!

A Little Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Way more than we expected. The owners really have a nice place in Beaune and everything is within walking distance. The owners are very nice and extremely helpful. They pointed us to all the places that we could go and even offered to make reservations at restaurants for us.

The place itself is well kept and spacious with a very French and cozy feel to it. The kitchen had just about everything you'd need, however, we didn't use it during our short stay. The bed was comfortable. And even though the place is on the main blvd, it was quiet on the inside.

Unfortunately the weather was a bit cold and rainy, otherwise, we could've enjoyed their rather large enclosed well-manicured yard & pool. But maybe we will enjoy it next time we return to Bourgogne.

Thank you for the wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Dears, Thank you for your compliments. We are delighted that you had a pleasant stay. It is true that we do our utmost for the comfort and well-being of our guests. But we still have no solution to have the sun when we wish... (but the vineyards also love the rain...). We hope to see you again and this time in the summer to enjoy the garden and pool. Best regards

Really nice property, owners were very helpful. Unfortunately the weather was not good so unable to enjoy the heated pool. Property within a few minutes walk of restaurants, tourist attractions etc. Private gated parking was an added bonus, Would recommend this property.

Comfort and friendliness

  • 5 of 5

Le Jardin Secret de Beaune is exactly as described. A hidden gem within easy walking distance of the restaurants and shops in Beaune.

When you arrive there is no clue to the beautiful place you will stay in except for a very nice wall. Jean Jacues and Jocelyn could not have been more welcoming. The little house is spacious. The kitchen is tiny but there is everything you need to make your own meals if you want to. Jean-Jacques helps light the barbecue if you need it and cleans it up for you. The bed is comfortable the bathroom enormous and there are more towels than even a teenager could use.

The garden is a delight. I am a fan of swimming in the pool was great and beautifully clean. When we had dinner at home in the evening some nights Jocelyn brought beautiful candles all around where we were sitting.

I lost a ring. Jocelyn was more than helpful in trying to find it and in offering to call the hotel where I may have left it.

High praise for this place.

A lovely quiet apartment with pretty flowered garden and pool-5 minutes from Beaune centre.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully kind hosts in Jocelyn and Jean-Jack. Excellent double glazing so no noise from the road nor in the large garden. Powerful wifi, baker at 300 metres ( shut on Thursday's but the paper shop next door becomes a depot de pain with baguettes then). New Lidl about same distance. We are cycle tourists so having been on the road for 5 weeks, just wanted a quiet place where we could cook our own food for dinner and have cold lunches, both by the pool and watch the Tour de France in the afternoon. Tick for those.

And have all our clothes and cycling clothes washed in their washing machine and in dried on their line. Tick. Good large TV screen for Le Tour. Tick. Safe space undercover for the bikes. Tick ( and Beaune Cycles 21 is 200 metres away. Excellent for a derailleur problem on my bike - fixed that day. )

No question but we will stay there again next time we are in Burgundy.

Lastly, our hosts are extremely friendly and so helpful in several small but crucial ways.

Thank you again, Jocelyn and Jean- Jack. A bientôt.
