Beautiful apartment in wine loving town

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this apartment very much - the location was very convenient to having a car as it is on the loop that encircles Beaune (inside the loop parking is metered and cobblestone streets and pedestrians may make it a bit confusing to drive). We arrived the first day of the Vents de Vin/Wine auction weekend. Unfortunately the free public parking lot was blocked off for the festivities but with some persistence and willingness to park where the locals park (e.g., off a walking path) we were good to go. The apartment is larger and lovelier than it appeared on the photos. High ceilings, beams, tall Windows, light and bright and well decorated . The kitchen was better equipped than any VRBO I have visited. No drip coffee maker - French press only. Full size and well working washer and clothes dryer!! Very rare. We were well supplied prior to arrival by the host (included) (coffee, milk, cookie, chips, orange juice, etc.) and there were cooking spices, oil, etc. Each bedroom has a large bed and separate en suite bathroom for privacy. The living and one bedroom face Rue Lorraine - nice holiday lights up already in November. We had one issue with the heating but it was addressed as soon as possible given the festival weekend; meanwhile the apartment has space heaters that worked fine and a wood burning heating fireplace. The local contacts responded promptly when we emailed them. We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. Beaune is a nice, small town with infinite wine tasting opportunities - including wine caves and producers - in town plus wineries to visit by car.

Fabulous visit in Beaune

  • 5 of 5

A group of 4 adults enjoyed a wonderful stay at Su Bishops apartment in early Sept. The weather treated us well and the apartment was perfect for 4 adults to have privacy as well as share the great space in the dinning living room. if you can stay over a Saturday the Beaune market is worth visiting as everything in town is within walking distance from the apartment just inside the gates of the town. The restaurant directly across the street offered local fare and we thoroughly enjoyed the quality of the food and staff. If you are planning travel in the Burgundy region, be sure to book this apartment.mwe stayed 3 days but will plan to stay in the apartment for a week next time!

The book on local activity guidance provided by Su was used extensively by us and the advice was excellent. The local grocery store allowed us to purchase requirements for breakfasts and lunches, although we could easily have cooked ourselves dinner in the well appointed kitchen.

5 star accommodation, 5 star location in the heart of Burgundy

  • 5 of 5

If you want to explore the beautiful Burgundy region , this is your location. The 2 master bedrooms, spacious, perfectly appointed flat was so comfortable we didn't want to leave. How thoughtful to leave us a bottle of chilled champagne, juice, coffee, cream and many others gifts to welcome us. The quest book covered everything in the flat to how to plan our daily excursions from Beaune.

The location offered the embrace of both a city center with many shops, historical landmarks, outdoor markets and a train station. We rented a car so that we could explore the spectacular region. We put together a picnic for each day and wine tasted in the famous villages - no need for an expensive wine tour. The unique tiled roofs of Beaune are throughout the region as well.

Location

From the Owner

Planning for our retirement and finally being able to realize all the European travels we had always dreamed of back in Australia, we wanted to find somewhere in France to set up our base camp. We decided to look for a spacious apartment with lots of character in the middle of a pretty medieval market town, with a range of shops and services and conveniently located for good motorway and train access. Porte St Nicolas in Beaune suits us perfectly.
