A vacation in Beaune does not necessarily mean you have to spend all the week at the vineyards. Lovers of excursions or gourmets will have plenty of options. The beautiful historic city of Dijon is just 45 minutes away by car and 25 by train, with frequent train service from Beaune. Paris can be easily reached by train as can Lyon.

SHOPPING & WELLNESS
Shopping lovers will enjoy the multitude of boutiques and shops in the village of Beaune. It is also possible to relax at several spas for massages, wellness programs, fitness and other.
The house is completely independent. A neighboring home and a restored barn share the front courtyard and access to the park. Privacy is fully ensured inside and in the private garden behind the home. A gardener tends to the park regularly but his presence should not disturb your enjoyment.
Ample parking included. While the home is not air conditioned, it has very thick masonry walls that keep it cool throughout the summer and insulated in the winter. Summer evenings are quite cool in Burgundy and it is wonderful to sleep with the windows open. Four electric fans are provided for added comfort.

House is fantastic!
It's huge, quiet, the view over the garden is simply amazing and the atmosphere in the house is wonderful. We were two families and there was more than enough space for all. Four bedrooms and two bathrooms were perfect, not to mention the 3 WC—very unusual to find. The kitchen and the living room were big enough for 9 people. For those who like going on day-trips there are many destinations to choose from. It was wonderful to escape to this retreat after long days of sightseeing. Picturesque villages are all around. We will definitely be back to spend our next holiday in this house.TripAdvisor property ID 2905410...Read more
