Summer in the Manoir
The house and grounds were just as described, very tranquil and spacious and the pool was very clean. Our hosts were ideal, there if needed but otherwise left us on our own. The local village, Nuits St Georges (8mins by car), had several good restaurants and Beaune (20mins) was beautiful with a wide variety of restaurants.
A thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing two week stay.
Beautiful House on the Cote d'Or
Our family spent 2 very nice weeks here in the summer. The house is very comfortable with a well equipped kitchen and plenty of seating for eating and relaxing both indoors and out. It is situated in a very quiet rural setting but only 10 minutes from Nuits St Georges, which has a good number of very nice and well priced restaurants. It is well sited between Beaune and Dijon which are impressive mediaeval towns with lots of shops and restaurants and of course wine caves for tasting and buying the excellent wine grown all along the Cote. Mike and Hiroko are very helpful and around for advice and suggestions. We would highly recommend the Manoir!
Relaxing holiday for 6
Mike and Hiroko's petit manoir is a lovely place to stay. Not only are the furnishings and decor splendid, the amenities are very adequate. Six of us stayed (couples and friends in our fifties) and we found the location and layout of the house to be perfect for a relaxing holiday. We ate at 2 restaurants in Nuits St George and they were both excellent. Mike also suggested places to visit - lots of wineries, chateaux, lovely villages - all within easy accessibility during our week's stay. And we were also able to spend many enjoyable evenings at the long table in the dining room drinking and eating the local produce! Definitely would return and would recommend it to friends.
A lovely stay in a charming and spacious house - exactly as pictured on the internet. Our hosts were very helpful and welcoming and the house was very comfortable and well equipped. The area is beautiful, with no shortage of places to eat and drink - ideal for visiting Dijon and Beaune - not forgetting the vineyards! Definitely a place we will return to.
week in a beautiful old Manor House in Burgundy
We stayed for one week with 8 persons in this beautiful Manor House near Nuits-St-Georges. It is situated in a rural, absolutely quiet area, but on the other hand you reach many Burgundian highlights easy and fast (Dijon, Beaune, Autun etc.). The house is most charming, with a big and well equipped kitchen, a beautiful, large dining- and sitting room with a wonderful view out of the huge “French windows” into the big garden and the meadows on the other side. The interieur is tasteful with many nice and charming details. The garden with an old stock of trees offers different pretty places to sit – in the sun or in the shadow – and we used the pool daily which was very refreshing after a hot day.
There is a big Carrefour which provides you with everything you need at the first roundabout at Nuits-St-Georges less than 10 min by car.
Our host Mike was most helpful and friendly and fulfilled even our extra wishes with kindness. We all enjoided our stay at “Petit Manoir) very much!
My wife and I stayed here with my brother, his wife & their baby. The house is perfectly situated in the heart of one of France's best wine centres. Great food, great wine and plenty of easily accessible enjoyable days out. Mike and Hiroko were very helpful and available, but never in the way.
The house itself is magnificent, very spacious, huge garden and amazingly private with all of the amenities you'll need for a complete sejour. Only point to be aware of is most double rooms have two single beds. So if you are more than one couple you'll have to fight for the double bed! It didn't stop the week from being a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
We had a great time in this wonderful mansion, a perfect location and a beautiful place to stay.
' Manoir' has a quiet village location close to the vast forest of Citeau with woodland trails just a few minutes walk from the front door. The vineyards of the Nuits and Cote d'Or lie to the west.

The hypermarkets and malls of Dijon are only 20 minutes north while 20 minutes to the south is the historic wine capital of Beaune with its picturesque streets, antique shops, museums and restaurants. Attractions in the immediate area include Clos de Vougeot ( the most popular visitor site in the region) and the Domaines of Romanee Conti ( the most expensive wine in the world). A few minutes away at Nuits St Georges are the Cassisium ( museum and tasting centre for cassis ) and the Imaginarium ( winery visit and tasting centre for cremant , the local champagne . And of course the villages and winemakers of the newly listed World Heritage site are located on the Route de Grands Cru from Dijon to south of Beaune .There are several Michelin starred restaurants within easy access and a vast choice of more affordable places to suit every budget.
