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.
Carolyn and Ken Thompson purchased this Apartment in 2005

Perfect Location for a Week in Burgundy
We were two couples enjoying a week stay in Burgundy. This property was absolutely perfect for us. We especially enjoyed having a secure parking spot for our car as well as the four e-bikes we rented for the week. Although there was a heat wave while we were there, the property fans kept us comfortable and we were able to sleep well despite the heat! Will certainly return if we can!
A perfect location
The house worked out perfectly for us. The location was the best. Everything one would need was there as represented.
Wish I could go back tomorrow!
Everything explained and what we read about this place was spot on. We were 2 couples staying 5 days (Carolyn said it would not be long enough & she was right). The small village has it all within 5 minute walk. My husband looked forward to having a patisserie steps away and we made full use of that. I recorded him walking over for a quick baguette when we realized we had no bread to go with our lunch (god forbid!). It took 40 seconds I think. Very comfortable throughout. The second bedroom bed needed to be filled in with comforters as it bowed in the middle, so not for larger people. Super easy access to various villages. We took a day drive on Sunday when most things are closed and stopped in or drove through at leave 20 villages or smaller! The chocolate shop, Calabrese (yummy & gracious owners), Fanny wine bar, Aupres du Clocher- all in the village and well worth a visit. Beaune & Dijon- great to visit and happy we stayed in the village. Don't miss Hostel Dieu in Beaune or the Sat market. Can't say it all here- we would recommend this place. Thank you Carolyn for all the tips.
Thanks so much for being such wonderful guests, Karen! And a huge thank you for a "heads up" on the the bed, as we had no idea that a bowing issue had developed. It's been checked out, and a replacement is on the way! "Merci" once again, and we will look forward to welcoming you back to our little corner of paradise in Pommard, the next time your travels bring you to our beautiful Burgundy!
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!
