An intimate experience for wine lovers, real village life with an inside track..
Imagine living in your very own Burgundian winemaker's house in the heart of one of the best wine regions in the world. Imagine a spacious home, lovingly renovated by the owners in conjunction with a fantastic architect and highly experienced local artisans. Imagine the perfect balance between authenticity and modern luxury so that you have a true Burgundian experience in deep comfort.
Imagine an enormous terrace on which to sit and watch the world go by, a large, secluded garden for relaxing and sun bathing and your own small vineyard to inspect and observe wine growing at close quarters.
This is 10pulignymontrachet - or 10pm for short.
Our home is close to the tourist action in Beaune etc but nestled in peace, quiet and luxury amidst the best white wine vineyards in the world - now with the added charm of being within a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Having said this, it is also within walking distance of two Michelin starred restaurants, wine bars (one "the best Chardonnay wine bar. Ever." according to some very knowledgeable guests!), and excellent bistros where the local winemakers and growers eat, drink and are merry.
The house is very traditional, having belonged to a winemaker in the past, with oak flooring throughout, Burgundian stone and enduit and original features. But the plumbing, the kitchen amenities and the size and comfort of the beds are very up to date!
The whole property consists of the Main House and the Little House which were originally a family house and its granny annex, separated by a very thick Burgundian stone wall, so well insulated from each other (and the cold/heat).
You can take the Main House (three double bedrooms, each with en suite) in the knowledge that you will have exclusive use of the house, the gardens and the patio/terrace areas. We will not let the Little House to anyone else if you are staying in the Main House.
If you are a larger party, there is also the potential to rent its equally spacious, completely self contained, 'Little House' (sleeps four additional guests in two double bedrooms with one shared bathroom, see the separate tab).
Both were completely renovated to offer luxury accommodation, combining original features with modern facilities, including some very atypical plumbing (ie powerful 'Raindance' showers)!!
We like to be comfortable, with lots of space, large beds, luxury bedding and mattresses, a kitchen made for entertaining and the rest of it. This is our holiday home, so it includes all of the features that we love.
Our architect is obsessed with getting the greatest amount of natural light into a home as she can possibly manage, and she has managed this particularly well! This adds to the feeling of light and space in both properties.
See the details of the accommodation below and the photos of our lovely holiday home in Burgundy. Please note that photos of the Little House are towards the bottom of the photo gallery.
As an extra treat, we have connections with wine makers, and experts in the area who may be able to offer you, at a modest cost and as convenient for you, a completely bespoke experiences and consultations on your voyage of discovery...
They can help you to organise visits to special wineries, private wine tastings in the house accompanied by the finest local food, inside information on the best restaurants to suit all budgets, fun wine education sessions etc.
But this is your choice. You will be equally happy if you want to run under your own steam.
The main house, which we update every year comprises:
Three spacious double bedrooms with deeply comfortable mattresses and classic décor, each with a luxury en suite shower room. Each bedroom is individually designed to reflect a season of the year in Burgundy.
A separate family bathroom, overlooking the vines, with a cast iron roll top bath and stone and marble tiling.
A large open plan, bright living room with a fully fitted American-style modern kitchen. We have designed this space with conviviality in mind so that you can cook and interact with friends at the same time or share a wine tasting at the central island. Extra little luxuries include the wine fridge and the Krups espresso coffee maker and also the filter coffee maker.
The dining table in the Main House seats 10 so that, even if you are using both houses, you will dine together.
There is a very large private terrace just outside the front door with a large table and chairs where you can relax and have an outdoor meal, a quiet aperitif in the evening or simply watch the village life go by or gaze over the Montrachet vineyards.
The garden is large, verdant, peaceful and totally private. It provides both sun and shady spots as you wish. Two large bistro-style garden tables and 10 chairs, eight comfortable recliners, a large 'bistro' sun shade and outdoor lighting are there for guests' use.
To the rear of our house is our small vineyard - the 'vininch' as we like to call it. It boasts the only red grapes in the village (those of you who are into your wine will know the reason for that!!).
There are laundry and ironing facilities, a secure storage space for your wine, and secure off street parking.
We have WiFi broadband and sound system and a (very discrete) television! Get to know each other again instead of using all that kit... Or use your wireless devices to pick your own web based entertainment.
The central heating keeps it warm in winter and the very thick walls keep it cool in the summer and quiet all year round.
We also have a combined heating/cooling air conditioning system through which guests can control the temperature in each individual room.
The Little House (which is not so little!) is available to rent as an addition to the main house from spring to autumn. It may be available separately in winter when the gardens will not be in use, depending on circumstances. It comprises:
Two classic and spacious double bedrooms with deeply comfortable mattresses and unique décor. The rooms in this house reflect French-speaking countries, Mali, Senegal, Tunisia...
A fully up to date bathroom with a spacious and powerful 'Raindance' walk-in shower.
A large and airy through living/dining room with views over both our vineyard at the back, and the front terrace.
A separate fully fitted modern kitchen also with views over our vineyard.
What makes 10pm one of the best places to stay in the Beaune area? Comfort, conviviality and location!
What makes Puligny Montrachet one of the best places to stay in Burgundy? Wine-village life, good amenities, not choc full of tourists, some of the very best wine makers in the world, access to so many other places!
We have designed and created 10pm for ourselves, our family and our friends. We want to attract guests who will feel completely at home and appreciate the care we have put into making their stay as excellent as possible.
Details for holiday home The Main House, with the property all to yourselves (no other guests), 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6, 4 Bathrooms
The Main House at 10pm is self contained luxury accommodation in its own grounds, sleeping up to three couples. It features three very spacious and comfortable double bedrooms with luxurious ensuite shower rooms (Hansgrohe Raindance showers (fabulous!)).
When you book the Main House on its own you have our promise of exclusive use of the whole property. The annex or "Little House" is only for use by larger parties.
The house is really spacious and geared towards convivial living, with the kitchen area at one end of the open plan living area.
You can be in a very typical Burgundian house with all of that history and style, but still have the benefits of modern plumbing, beds and kitchen facilities!

A beautiful house inside and out!
You were impeccable guests and will be warmly welcomed back to 10pm should you decide to return!

About the Owner
We are a couple of travellers who pootle about between London, Catalunya and Burgundy with plans to take in a 'Grand Tour' of Europe over the next few years.
We used to run our own (very serious) business until we escaped in summer 2012. Now we want to have fun, learn as much as we can and just be ourselves.
We love France and wanted a home where we can see, hear, touch, smell and taste superb wine being made.
We have designed and created 10pm for ourselves, our friends and family and like-minded guests.
We love, food, wine, history, learning stuff, comfy seats, comfy beds, power showers, great art, great music, thoughtful literature, creating our own cuisine, entertaining, having fun and having peace and quiet in a shady garden.
We want our guests to be able to experience the magical things we love with a little more than the basic touristic experience.
For us it is the small things that make a holiday magic - having a pheasant or red squirrel visit the garden, seeing the grapes being taken to Olivier Leflaive's winery to begin the wine making process, strolling down to the bread shop in the morning to get warm croissants, walking up the road to pay homage to the great Montrachet grapes (perhaps taking a bottle and some fresh cheese with us), popping literally next door to taste Jean Chartron's complex, beautifully balanced wines... this is life!
Then, when we are feeling more energetic, we will hop into the car (or a taxi) and travel a few kilometers to experience more history, geology and Burgundian life in the many surrounding villages and small towns.
If, like us, you want to be in the centre of things but not surrounded by a heaving, noisy, smelly circus, then this is the place for you.
Stay with us and we can help you to make your holiday that little bit extra special!

A beautiful house inside and out!
We had the most wonderful holiday at 10pm! It is beautifully appointed with an excellent kitchen and lovely bedrooms and bathrooms. We took full advantage of the outside spaces too - dining el fresco! We would love to return.
A very special place...
Where to begin?? We arrived much later than expected because of a rental car mix-up and were so happy to find in our kitchen a wonderful basket of goodies - bread, cheese, wine, breakfast pastries....plus coffee and milk! Then I spoke with Peter who made dinner reservations for us that night - so nice since we didn't know the town yet and since our French is sketchy. We had a delicious meal with great local wine, and they even fixed a "special" dish for one of us who is a vegetarian. And the house....amazing! So spacious and decorated beautifully...spotlessly clean....comfortable beds....and the best showers ever! We loved the town of Puligny-Montrachet ...dined at another spot Peter recommended and loved it also. We walked into town each morning for croissants and baguettes, fixed meals in the fully-equipped kitchen after visiting the Beaune Wednesday market, explored the area on bicycles, and had a fabulous 4 days. Much too short a trip. I can't say enough good things about 10PM....We all hope to visit again. Soon.
We would give a ten
This house is certainly the best property we have rented in the last 20 years. It is very high spec in terms of equipment, finish and cleanliness. Located in an idyllic village with numerous wine tasting houses, several restaurants and a bakery all within very easy walking distance. The surrounding area supplies a huge amount of places of interest and natural beauty as well as a winery on most corners of the road.
We would thoroughly recommend this house to both wine lovers and people searching a perfect base to discover the local area.
The perfect home away from home in France
We stayed at Peter and Lucy's lovely Burgundy home last year, and loved it so much we came back. Honestly, they've thought of everything you could want.
The house, thoughtfully modernized and decorated with flair, is thoroughly comfortable, and the very well-equipped kitchen is a delight to cook in. The views from the huge terrace, where we took most of our meals, are just gorgeous. The enclosed garden is thoroughly private. Actually, there are so many nice little places to sit outside that I didn't manage to sit in all of them. There are books should you wish to dip into them, an eclectic CD collection , comfy sofas in the living room, picnic gear, a barbecue that we used to felicitous culinary effect (we thought), and several bicycles, one of which was happily appropriated by our accompanying 24-year old, who biked 30 km to Nolay and back before breakfast one day and pronounced the experience "fantastic".
Peter and Lucy's longtime friend Pascal Wagner is a gem - affable, helpful, fun, extremely knowledgeable about wine, winemaking, and about the area in general. We learned a lot from Pascal, and his restaurant recommendations were always spot on.
And finally, Peter and Lucy themselves are the most solicitous and helpful hosts you can imagine. They really take care to provide you with all the tips and information you could want to help you get to know this beautiful part of the world and enjoy your holiday; we couldn't have asked for more.
10 Days of Peace and Gentile Living
From start to finish Peter and Lucy were a class act. At every step they were informative,patient, wonderfully thorough and delightful to interact with. 10PM was a dream come true in wonderful Burgundy.Sleepy little village with access to great sights in the heart of great wine country as well as fabulous food ...and the wines.Spent endless evenings on the front patio watching the world turn. Spacious with all amenities covered with style and functionality. Cooked many meals after going to the local markets in Chagny and Beaune.Be sure to use the provided bicycles to travel into the vineyards or take the velo route to the canal in Santenay. The morning ride into Meursault for bread is memorable. Of course you must engage Pascal Wagner who is a true gem of a resource of all things Burgundian. Whether a day hire or just stopping below 10PM to chat he is truly remarkable in his knowledge, his willingness to share and his wonderful French spirit. We stayed 10 days of peace and gentile living in the perfect get away. Thanks so much.
Very comfortable. Highly recommended by our group.
The beautiful village of Puligny Montrachet is a perfect place to enjoy the fantastic foods, fine wines & wonderful markets of Burgundy and to explore the nearby historic villages and towns. For three couples of friends holidaying separately in Europe, 10PM was a great place to meet up again for a relaxing week. The residence has been refurbished to an excellent standard and the three large bedrooms all have en-suite shower rooms fitted out with high quality fixtures & fittings. The generous galley kitchen has Miele or equivalent standard appliances and good quality equipment. On warm evenings enjoy a glass or two of local wine on the terrace and watch the hot air balloons pass over the nearby vineyards. The only disappointment of our stay was our meal at the restaurant L’Estaminet des meix
From the Owner
“Authenticity, comfort, conviviality, convenience... We created 10pm with luxury in mind. The "Raindance" showers and the beds are big enough even for really tall people (so our US guests tell us!), the beds have deep mattresses and luxury linens. The kitchen is designed for people who love to entertain, full of the equipment you might need. It is peaceful but in the centre of the most famous white wine villages in the world and within a stone's throw of all the action - perfect! As well as the large garden, we have an enormous raised terrace from which you can see mountain and vineyards of Montrachet - wow! Dining al-fresco is also really easy as the terrace is just off the kitchen. Then, when you decide to stir outside... If you want to experience a unique immersion in the culinary and vinicultural treasures that Burgundy has to offer, this is the place for you. Burgundy is the home of some of the best wines in the world, red and white. Just think of the names - Montrachet, Vosne Romanee, Chambolle Musigny, Pommard. It is like a roll call of fine wines. At 10pm we are so lucky to have the three sisters of classic white wines, Puligny, Chassagne and Meursault on our very doorstep. By merely walking down the road you will be able to visit the actual vineyards with all the history and geographical specificity they convey, and visit some of the finest winemakers in the world. Wine tastings will allow you to see the range and quality of the wines, and have fun too. Wonderful local restaurants offer the best there is to eat, whether you want fine dining or simpler fare. Charolais beef, burgundy snails, fabulous local cheeses, home made charcuterie - wow! Explore the food shops and street markets to find glorious seasonal produce for a picnic or to eat at home, indoors or al fresco. Cycling and walks in the vineyards are great fun too and there are specific routes promoted according to duration and difficulty”
Activity and Interests
In the heart of the World Heritage Site "Climats de Bourgogne", our very Burgundian but immensely comfortable holiday home, 10pm, is nestled in the highly prestigious, working wine village of Puligny Montrachet.
You will be living alongside some of the best wine makers in the world (including the lovely Jean-Michel Chartron whose Caveau is literally next door), close to the vineyards to which visitors from all over the world come to pay homage. You will be within walking distance of two Michelin starred restaurants, high quality wine bars and fab bistros.
You will be a mere 10 minute drive through the vineyards to the hustle and bustle (and tourist masses!) of Beaune, but will be able to come back to peace, quiet and space (both indoor and outdoor).
There are many historical and Oenological sites of interest within striking distance of our village. And the tastings available...!
You can do the "tourist bit" which is marvellous. But we can also help you to find one or two little gems that few others will find if they stay completely on the beaten track.
There are excellent connections from central Paris. It is also easily driveable from Paris, Lyon, Dijon and Geneva if you don't fancy Paris.
If you are serious wine lovers, interested learners or families/groups who want to do great things together but with enough space to chill out, 10pm in Puligny Montrachet is an ideal location in any season.
Spring, Summer, Autumn, even Winter (with some insider knowledge) in Burgundy is an absolute delight with lots of things to do, see and experience.
Puligny Montrachet is in the heart of the Burgundy wine region and is famed for producing the finest white wines in the world. In fact, as we said earlier, 10pm is next door to one of the best makers of Puligny Montrachet and other wines - Domaine Jean Chartron.
It is not an overly touristic village, so it is not noisy and hectic. But it is a working village, full of winemakers and so quite lively at times, with great local amenities.
As an optional extra, through our connections in the local wine business, you can have one or two experiences that are unique - visits to undiscovered winemakers, wine tastings at home (in our convivial open plan living room/kitchen) or in the vineyards, knowledge of local restaurants, wine makers and food producers that are currently 'on form' etc.
We are blessed to have two Michelin starred restaurants within walking distance of the house, Le Montrachet in our village and Ed Em in Chassagne Montrachet, a 30 minute stroll away through the vineyards. And the village Caveau de Puligny Montrachet ("the best Burgundy wine bar. Ever!") offers informal wine tastings of the finest selected local wines on their terrace.
Before we forget, and speaking of high class restaurants, Chagny, which is about three kilometers away, boasts one of the most famous restaurants in the world - the three starred Lameloise.
However, we must not forget that we are in France and the budget restaurants are very very fine too!
Our house is also a good centre for walking and cycling in the vineyards and around. An easy walk or ride away is Meursault, with its fabulous coloured roof tiled town hall.
Beaune is only 12 km away with its famous colourful Saturday market, the Hospices de Beaune, its beautiful architecture and its quaint, mainly pedestrianised, centre and some really interesting shopping.
Slightly further afield and well worth visiting are Chalon sur Saone (a lovely provincial town with a really good Sunday food market in the streets around the cathedral), Nolay (a small town with an historic centre and a medieval market building that must be seen), Santenay (a 'ville fleurie' with a lovely town square with a fabulous fountain, a casino and an outdoor swimming pool open in the summer months), the Cistercian Abbey of Citeaux. And of course you are just a short distance from some of the other famous names in Burgundy wine - Nuits Saint Georges, Pommard, Chambolle Musigny, Clos de Vougeot, Vosne Romanee, Meursault, Chassagne Montrachet etc, which each have their own character and of course their own vignerons, many of which offer tastings.
We are still exploring the surrounding areas and constantly finding new and interesting things to see and do.
Also unique to 10pm is our website with guest-only areas which give you exclusive insights and tips which will make your stay that bit more special. What cheese to try? Which is the best charcuterie? Where is it? What is it best for? What's on in Burgundy at the moment?
All of these things make 10pm and Puligny Montrachet one of the best places to stay in Burgundy.

From the Owner
“Why battle through the crowded tourist areas to get home and have crowds milling on your doorstep at all hours? But the neither do you want to be in a remote spot a bit too far from other people. In our village you get the best of both worlds and, most importantly, a true Burgundian experience! This experience is for people who want to see village life, sitting in the bistro or fine-wine bar next to the very people who make the wine, and also want the ability to spend active days without always having to get into a car. Our house combines an authentic Burgundian home with great comfort, modernity in the right places, friendliness and conviviality with a great location which means you are not far from anything. 10pm is only a couple of hundred metres from the very centre of Puligny Montrachet, which is steeped in history. Our neighbours are some of the best known winemakers in the world and you can visit many of them (on foot!) to taste their creations. And, without even having to get into your car, you can easily reach the boulangerie, the local epicerie (grocery), the fine-wine bars (caveaux), four restaurants (including two Michelin starred restaurants), and Olivier Leflaive's famous wine tasting lunch. Beaune is just 12 kilometers away and there are many more wonderful sights, tastes and experiences even nearer, such as the three Michelin starred Lameloise just a short car ride away. Walk or cycle through the vineyards to get close to the grapes growing in those famous named plots of land. Or use the services or our wine contacts for a bespoke programme (big or small) that will allow you to get to know special things that might otherwise pass you by. Of course you can stay at home and take advantage of the grounds - a large lawn and our very own 'vin inch' at the back of the house. Guests of 10pm also have exclusive access to the guest-only pages of our website which gives you little insights into the area, the cuisine and other little bits of magic.”
