Guestbook comments from the owner
Delicately situated in the midst of old Beaune, the modern comfort of this apartment juxtaposes the local medieval aesthetic to perfection. We found it a spacious and stylish retreat that came well appointed with high quality appliances and furnishings. It was also very clean when we arrived. The weather was quite bad during our stay and so we spent a lot of time just relaxing in the apartment, cooking and watching films. For this purpose it was ideal, being very quiet on the top floor, warming up nicely and yet also very close to the shops and eateries when we felt like venturing out. In a different season though I can see it would clearly be equally adept as a base of operations for a cycling holiday.
The owner was very helpful and friendly throughout the booking process and provided easy to follow instructions for finding the property and using all the appliances. If I was to return to this region again I would book this place up straight away because it delivers all the essenti
From the Owner
“We love Beaune because of the central France location, as well as its reputation as a 'city with attitude'. Shopping opportunities abound, including classy clothing stores, fromageries, chocolatieres, boulangeries and charcuteries. A huge range of activities is available in the area. Our favourite is cycling, though we have seen fish being caught in the waterways and not too far away (30 km) are canals to enjoy barging. Also there are many bars and restaurants in Beaune, as well as a lovely public indoor swimming pool. Something for everyone. The train trip from Paris drops you 700 metres from our apartment, so there is no real need for a car.”
Activity and Interests
The apartment is located inside the town walls, 750 metres from the Beaune train station. No car necessary. Lyon airport is 2 hours' distance and is accessible by train.
Beaune is the 'wine capital' of Burgundy, so there is more than enough activity to keep you occupied. Dijon is 25 minutes to the north and Lyon is 1 3/4 hours' travel to the south. Both cities are worth a visit by train.

From the Owner
“The apartment could not really be any more convenient to local attractions, with the main square (Place Carnot) a mere 250 metres away along a quiet street and pedestrian malls. We offer free wi-fi, cable TV and free telephone to landlines (only) in a wide range of countries. As the capital of the Burgundy wine area (the Cote d'Or) there is a wide range of opportunities for sampling the local produce. This, combined with a wonderful market on Wednesdays and Saturdays makes Beaune a wonderful holiday destination.”
