About the property

Townhouse Apartment in Pommard, Near Beaune, Burgundy, France - A Place To Call Your Own in the Famous Wine Village of Pommard

Pommard is a bustling wine village situated just on the outskirts of the medieval town of Beaune, the heart of the Cote d’Or. Our modern ground floor apartment is located in a beautifully renovated 17th century carriage inn. Chosen for it’s location in one of France’s most famous wine villages, the property adjoins the famous Chateau de Pommard, whose beautifully restored gardens are open to the public. A stay in our apartment, with the boulangerie (bakery), wine bar, café, and restaurants literally steps from the front door, offers a true taste of Burgundian village life. Just two hours from Paris by train, this location is a perfect vacation destination for lovers of wine and the beautiful countryside in which it is produced. And because of proximity to the train station in Beaune (2 miles) and the autoroute (2 miles), Pommard provides an ideal base from which to explore other parts of France and Europe.

About Carolyn and Ken Thompson

Imagine two young, aspiring musicians, growing up 25 miles from one another in the USA. One summer they are each sent to perform in the great concert halls and cathedrals of Europe. They meet and speak to one another for the first time on the steps of Notre Dame de Paris – the beginnings of a life-long love story, with each other, with a way of life, and with France! Since 2005 we have owned this, our second home, in the Burgundian wine village of Pommard. Each year has brought an ever-increasing respect for and connection to the people and culture of this remarkable place, the most celebrated wine region on earth. Our desire to make this property available for others to enjoy was born out of a desire to share our knowledge and love of Burgundy with those who desire a special experience.

Why Carolyn and Ken Thompson chose Beaune area

Our little corner of Heaven in the Côte de Beaune is the perfect place for you to call home during your stay in Burgundy, for so many reasons: Our guests get to experience life in one of the most beautiful and historic wine villages in the region, yet only 3 kilometers from the bustling town of Beaune, with its Wednesday and Saturday markets, train station, museums, restaurants, shopping, history, and of course, great wine!

What makes this apartment unique

First, with your, we are pleased to offer one complementary hour of trip planning consultation from “Your Key to Burgundy,” (www.yourkeytoburgundy.com) our company that specializes in helping clients to design personalized, authentic experiences in Burgundy and beyond.

Second, unlike many holiday rentals in Burgundy, we are fortunate to have property managers who live right in our village, allowing us to provide the highest quality of service for our guests throughout their stay.

Incredible apartment in Pommard

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is right in the center of the little village of Pommard. The much bigger town of Beaune is probably 10 minutes away, and all the great wine towns of Cote de Beaune, Cote de Nuit, Cote Challonais etc are easily accessible for touring. My son and I would pick out 2 or 3 or 4 towns in each region to visit in a day - breakfast, touring, lunch with wine, touring, dinner with wine and home - it was incredible to see these places: Volnay, Merseault, Puligny-Montrachet, Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosnee-Romanee, Vougeot, etc. The private gated parking is a welcome feature - never search for a place to park at night. It is a perfect home base for touring.

Pommard itself is lovely and quiet. Not a lot was open in July but we very much enjoyed the bakery right outside the front door entrance, a tour of the Chateau , the Calabria pizzeria (friendly, family run, good wines, fantastic pasta amatriciana), and (right next door) Compagnie de Fanny for wine and wonderful charcuterie and frommage. (Au Pres du Clocher was unfortunately closed!)

Inside the apartment is so homey, and so completely thought through, that it is a pleasure to come home there each day. The kitchen and bath are full of high end fixtures and could not be nicer or more functional. The living room is comfortable for watching a DVD or TV - we mostly watched CNN international and movies. The dining area is much larger than we had need for.

The rooms are perfectly decorated. The 2 bedrooms are both comfortable and cool at night - even in July.

In addition to touring the wine regions we made the most of our proximity to Beaune - a very beautiful city. Highlights for us were the Saturday morning farmers market, Hotel-Dieu, a tour of the cellars of Jospeh Drouhin, the wine museum, and a wonderful (and expensive) dinner at Jardin des Ramparts.

The even bigger city of Dijon is a little more than a half hour away - we did some of the museums and churches and had a nice lunch at Cafe Gourmand on the main plaza.

For the ambitious I recommend day trips to Cluny, the Beaujolais region, the Chablis region and the great city of Lyon. We spent a week in Pommard followed by a week in Lyon which made seeing these places easy. We then backtracked to Chablis for a night to stage our return to CDG.

Finally, the owner Carolyn could not have been nicer or more helpful or informative. She knows so much about her region in France and is generous in sharing.

Just go - this place s great!

Home in Burgundy

  • 5 of 5

My husband, a friend and I stayed at this wonderful apartment in Pommard for 5 days this past May. It truly was a 'home away from home."

The apartment is spacious, clean, and very comfortable. It is fully equipped with everything that you might need during your stay, including a fully equipped kitchen with a built in oven, microwave, a full-sized four burner cooktop, full-sized fridge, dishwasher, washing machine and a full complement of kitchen utensils, cutlery, dishes and glassware. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. There is a large main bathroom with a tub/shower combination and a smaller half bathroom with a toilet and sink.

The apartment is well-maintained and s very clean.

Carolyn and her property manager, Audrey, were also very helpful in assisting us with dinner reservations and restaurant and winery recommendations.

Thank you Carolyn and Ken for a wonderful base for our tour of Burgundy. We highly recommend this apartment, and hope to return one day soon.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this wonderful property. First time was in April, 2015. After cramped hotels in Paris and "OK" properties elsewhere in cities and towns, what a wonderful treat to find the roomie comfort of "your" own home in Pommard / Beaune. Fully stocked kitchen for cooking your own meals. Extremely comfortable. Very quiet. Enhances and makes unforgettable any trip to Burgundy. Recommend that you make it your headquarters.

Great location for the perfect Burgundy experience

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place where we had our perfect Burgundy experience. From this location, you can explore on foot the lovely town of Pommard that in spite of its quaint size has ALL the essentials--a great restaurant, cafe, wine shop, patisserie and fromagerie... And, it's so close to Beaune you can even bike there through the vineyards via a special path. You really feel like in Pommard you become a part of the village as you depart from your front door step onto the main street in town, getting to know the locals as you get your daily pain and cafe creme. And, the apartment is spacious with a wonderful kitchen, living room, dining room and two bedrooms, along with the small outdoor patio, and all well-appointed. We were so comfortable. We would definitely do this trip again, staying at sweet 3 Clos de Pommard for sure again. The owners are the best! They truly want to share their love with Burgundy to all who come and are great resources for ANYTHING you want to do in Burgundy.

Wonderful home in a central location in Burgundy

  • 5 of 5

I very much enjoyed my conversations with the property owner Carolyn from our first contact. We corresponded by email and by phone and I felt very comfortable about the property arrangements. Carolyn is a great resource on everything from Travel tips, wineries, food, and sightseeing. The property is perfectly situated in the heart of the Village of Pommard. There is a Bakery with fresh baked Pastries right across the street, a market, a wine bar run by Sabastian whom speaks perfect English and really knows his wines and is a partner in Fanny Sabre Winery up the street, a butcher Shop with awesome Duck pate and meats and cheeses, a great French Restaurant the Clocher, well basically everything you need to enjoy yourself . We were treated like family in Pommard and tasted with at least 12 wineries and met with 5 Winemakers for several hours. this is the property and Village to call home....
