Pommard is a bustling wine village situated just on the outskirts of the medieval town of Beaune, the heart of the Cote d’Or. Our modern ground floor apartment is located in a beautifully renovated 17th century carriage inn. Chosen for it’s location in one of France’s most famous wine villages, the property adjoins the famous Chateau de Pommard, whose beautifully restored gardens are open to the public. A stay in our apartment, with the boulangerie (bakery), wine bar, café, and restaurants literally steps from the front door, offers a true taste of Burgundian village life. Just two hours from Paris by train, this location is a perfect vacation destination for lovers of wine and the beautiful countryside in which it is produced. And because of proximity to the train station in Beaune (2 miles) and the autoroute (2 miles), Pommard provides an ideal base from which to explore other parts of France and Europe.

About Carolyn and Ken Thompson
Imagine two young, aspiring musicians, growing up 25 miles from one another in the USA. One summer they are each sent to perform in the great concert halls and cathedrals of Europe. They meet and speak to one another for the first time on the steps of Notre Dame de Paris – the beginnings of a life-long love story, with each other, with a way of life, and with France! Since 2005 we have owned this, our second home, in the Burgundian wine village of Pommard. Each year has brought an ever-increasing respect for and connection to the people and culture of this remarkable place, the most celebrated wine region on earth. Our desire to make this property available for others to enjoy was born out of a desire to share our knowledge and love of Burgundy with those who desire a special experience.
Why Carolyn and Ken Thompson chose Pommard

absoluely great week.
This property is great place to stay while in the Beaune area! The property is attractively furnished, has ample cooking supplies and utensils, and is well maintained in the heart of an the southern Burgundy wine area. We were extremely pleased with our week and would gladly return for more time there. Pommard has all the facilities that bring you to Beaune area, and the restaurants in these villages are superior to the what one finds in Beaune. The bakery is just a few steps away - fresh breakfast came from there daily! The owners also provide all the necessary info for a wonderful stay there.
We were very impressed. Pommard is beautiful place with vineyards and very close to Beaune for day trips. This accomodation is just awesome and the english speaking property manager is her worth in gold for someone with very little knowledge of the French language.
We would definitely stay here again in the future. Everything was ready and thought of for tired travelers and even a present for our 3year old grandchild!!
Luxury is definitely the right description for this HomeAway accomodation.

Terrific property in a great location. Welcoming and well appointed made us feel at home!
We enjoyed 6 nights in Pommard and surrounding villages in early Spring. Carolyn was very responsive as was the local manager. The decor is tasteful and local info and Library of books, tourist info and videos were appreciated. We will come back here!

Lovely clean and fully equipped Appartement
We really enjoyed our stay at 3clos. Nice elegant apartment, well equipped kitchen, interesting surroundings. And for people with kids: great swimming pool at 6 minutes drive!
Incredible apartment in Pommard
The apartment is right in the center of the little village of Pommard. The much bigger town of Beaune is probably 10 minutes away, and all the great wine towns of Cote de Beaune, Cote de Nuit, Cote Challonais etc are easily accessible for touring. My son and I would pick out 2 or 3 or 4 towns in each region to visit in a day - breakfast, touring, lunch with wine, touring, dinner with wine and home - it was incredible to see these places: Volnay, Merseault, Puligny-Montrachet, Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosnee-Romanee, Vougeot, etc. The private gated parking is a welcome feature - never search for a place to park at night. It is a perfect home base for touring.
Pommard itself is lovely and quiet. Not a lot was open in July but we very much enjoyed the bakery right outside the front door entrance, a tour of the Chateau , the Calabria pizzeria (friendly, family run, good wines, fantastic pasta amatriciana), and (right next door) Compagnie de Fanny for wine and wonderful charcuterie and frommage. (Au Pres du Clocher was unfortunately closed!)
Inside the apartment is so homey, and so completely thought through, that it is a pleasure to come home there each day. The kitchen and bath are full of high end fixtures and could not be nicer or more functional. The living room is comfortable for watching a DVD or TV - we mostly watched CNN international and movies. The dining area is much larger than we had need for.
The rooms are perfectly decorated. The 2 bedrooms are both comfortable and cool at night - even in July.
In addition to touring the wine regions we made the most of our proximity to Beaune - a very beautiful city. Highlights for us were the Saturday morning farmers market, Hotel-Dieu, a tour of the cellars of Jospeh Drouhin, the wine museum, and a wonderful (and expensive) dinner at Jardin des Ramparts.
The even bigger city of Dijon is a little more than a half hour away - we did some of the museums and churches and had a nice lunch at Cafe Gourmand on the main plaza.
For the ambitious I recommend day trips to Cluny, the Beaujolais region, the Chablis region and the great city of Lyon. We spent a week in Pommard followed by a week in Lyon which made seeing these places easy. We then backtracked to Chablis for a night to stage our return to CDG.
Finally, the owner Carolyn could not have been nicer or more helpful or informative. She knows so much about her region in France and is generous in sharing.
Just go - this place s great!
Home in Burgundy
My husband, a friend and I stayed at this wonderful apartment in Pommard for 5 days this past May. It truly was a 'home away from home."
The apartment is spacious, clean, and very comfortable. It is fully equipped with everything that you might need during your stay, including a fully equipped kitchen with a built in oven, microwave, a full-sized four burner cooktop, full-sized fridge, dishwasher, washing machine and a full complement of kitchen utensils, cutlery, dishes and glassware. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. There is a large main bathroom with a tub/shower combination and a smaller half bathroom with a toilet and sink.
The apartment is well-maintained and s very clean.
Carolyn and her property manager, Audrey, were also very helpful in assisting us with dinner reservations and restaurant and winery recommendations.
Thank you Carolyn and Ken for a wonderful base for our tour of Burgundy. We highly recommend this apartment, and hope to return one day soon.
Lynne, we thank you so much for your kind words about our little corner of Heaven in Burgundy! You were wonderful guests, and we would be honored to host you again. Please let us know, the next time your travels bring you to our beautiful region!
With our warmest wishes,
Carolyn and Ken
