Paradise in the vineyards

  • 5 of 5

This house is a beautifully rehabbed priory, that was in use back in the day of the abbey at Cluny. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the owners have provided great linens and towels. Most of the rooms have an ensuite bathroom, which is rare in Europe. There is a very large great room, great for larger groups or families for gathering over a glass of wine and hors d'ouevres. Fortunately, it is equipped with a very efficient wood-burning stove, so you can be warm and cozy in your grand chateau! The sixth bedroom is located in the tower out front, and it is a bit more like camping, but really fabulous in its own way. There is also a pool which we weren't able to use due to cool weather. The only drawback to this house is that the kitchen is a bit underequipped (no oven), but we discussed that with the owner, and he plans on changing it. We cooked many meals, had lunch in the courtyard and numerous glasses of wine in the great room. In terms of location, this house is ideally suited for touring the Macon and Beaujolais, with the heart of the Cote d'Or being only about 45 minutes away. Additionally, Michel, the owner and host, generously shared knowledge, travel tips, and restaurant recommendations without ever being intrusive. We shared a couple of meals with him and had a great time. I would strongly recommend this house for a trip that will provide a real peek into Burgundy.

Magnifique endroit! Nous avons passé un superbe séjour au prieuré à 11 adultes et 3 enfants. La maison est non seulement belle et rénovée avec gout, les extérieurs des plus plaisants et bien aménagés et le propriétaire charmant. Ses conseils pour des caves à visiter et des restaurants ou manger valent de l'or! La maison est complètement aménagée (cuisine équipée pour tout (lave vaisselle, four, cuisinière, four a microondes etc) et pour un 15aines de personnes) immense salon-séjour avec cheminée, sono, billard etc, extérieurs avec barbecue, piscine, table et sauna) et très agréable. Je ne peux que recommander cette location à toutes et tous!
