Starting to plan early--will be in Beaune in September/October 2017. We will have a car to enjoy the wineries so we can be outside of town if necessary. Any recommendations much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
We stayed this summer at the lovely Les Jardins de Louis B&B. Owner and winemaker Philippe gave us a private tasting of his Pinot Noir in his wine cellar.
Not in Beaune, but in Massangis... The Carpe Diem Guesthouse. Beautiful rooms, lovely setting with garden areas and plenty of parking, gracious hosts, dinner optional or choices nearby. The price was right ( very right) too a few years back. One of the few places we have stayed that really enhanced our visit rather than just a place to sack out. With the car it was easy to reach many sights; we spent 4 or 5 days and it was wonderful.
I second Massangis... The Carpe Diem Guesthouse!! Beaune was ok, but I personally wouldn't try to stay there. We stayed in Massangis twice, and drove into Beaune for the day. The region around Massangis is stunning, but it is out in the country. Have dinner every night at Carpe Diem...it is an experienced not to be missed.
By the way Kyle....you have this post listed un "Reviews" not general France questions. This spot is for people with a review of a hotel or restaurant etc. I would suggest you repost under the "Destination Questions and Answers- France" section where questions are asked.
Thanks to all...have looked at Carpe diem and this is an experience I don't want to miss!! Thanks Susan for letting me know I posted in wrong location. Thought my post just disappeared. Many thanks.
So glad to hear you are interested in staying at Carpe Diem! We really, really enjoyed the surrounding area so much so that there was plenty to do in our total of 7 night stay. You can drive into Beaune, but really, outside of Beaune is better IMHO. Carpe Diem is probably our favorite B & B of all time and the dinners are amazing! The food is fabulous, but it is the whole experience of dinning with other people from around the world. Conversations last well into the night. I always hate to recommend it to Americans because we love staying there and not running into Americans! In our 7 night stay we dined with people from England, Switzerland, Belgium, France and few other countries, and not one American. You all sit together for a family style dinner. We have been lucky that every night English was the language used, but Patrick will also interpret, if needed. It is in a tiny, tiny, village, so it is a must to have a car and drive out for the day. But the area is our favorite! Aw.....we would love to go back!
