Stay in a traditional yet upmarket wine-makers house in this unique and characterful townhouse in the very heart of a charming Burgundy wine-village surrounded by some of France’s finest vineyards of the Côte de Beaune region.

This historic maison is separated into two parts; the Maison de Vigneron, where the wine-maker used to live and the former wine press, joined together by a delightful courtyard and external staircase. After a recent renovation, the passionate owners have created an incredible home with high-quality style alongside characterful features that respect the history of this remarkable townhouse.

Step inside and you will find yourself in the original wine-press, now an elegant living-dining room and sleek open-plan kitchen which has been fitted with high-end appliances and thoughtfully equipped. Create feasts using some of Burgundy’s finest local produce and serve alongside wines from nearby Côte de Beaune vineyards in this serene and stylish setting.

Doors lead through to a charming courtyard where you can spend summer evenings relaxing by candlelight, cooking on the electric barbecue or simply listening to the sound of the water fountain as you appreciate the peace around you. Or you could head down to the cellar, previously belonging to the wine-maker’s house, where you can relax by the bar and have a game of pool in this characterful setting.

Scattered across various levels in both the wine-makers house and former wine-press, the four air-conditioned bedrooms feature sumptuous bedlinen and luxurious en suite bathrooms with either a multi-jet shower or balneotherapy baths. Each bedroom has a story to tell with individual character and wonderful furnishings across the double and twin rooms.

In the morning you can wander out to the local boulangerie for your morning pastries in just a couple of minutes; you really are in a perfect location in this charming wine-village within walking distance to restaurants, shops and beautiful historic buildings. Take a stroll along the nearby canal, head to the open-air swimming pool or cycle through the surrounding countryside, discovering some of the wonderful vineyards around the village. It’s a short drive to Chagny where you can enjoy fine dining in a 100-year old restaurant with three Michelin stars!

The famous Burgundy wineries of the Route des Grands Crus are also nearby where you can sample some of the finest wines in the country as well as visiting idyllic wine-villages such as Puligny-Montrachet, Pommard, Volnay and Meursault.

A little further afield discover Autun, Dijon and Cluny or make the most of the incredible natural landscapes in the Parc Naturel Régional du Morvan. Return to your Maison de Vigneron and Pressoir and you will feel like you are in the very heart of authentic and beautiful Burgundy.

Les Grands Crus is a semi-detached townhouse in the heart of a historic Burgundy wine-village.

You can wander a few minutes to the boulangerie in the morning to collect your morning pastries and bread, dine in some excellent restaurants and pick up everything you need from the local supermarket and butchers. It’s a charming village with many historical features and a joyful place to stay all year round, especially in the summer as the village hosts a number of concerts.

The Canal du Centre offers a picturesque setting for bike rides and leisurely walks and the owners can also arrange trips on the canal. There is also an open-air public swimming pool in the summer and tennis courts plus a playground and skate park around 1.6km from the village centre. The village is also famous for the medicinal properties of its water, indeed in 2020 they are hoping to open a bath and spa.

In the Côte de Beaune wine region, the village is surrounded by vineyards and the villagers take great pride in their wines, mainly reds made from the pinot noir grape and including many Premiers Crus. This is also the perfect location for exploring the wineries across Burgundy, not only the wines of the Côte de Beaune but also the Côte de Nuits vineyards. Hire bikes and cycle through the vineyards and idyllic villages of the famous Route des Grands Crus, visiting well-known wine-producing places such as Puligny-Montrachet, Pommard, Volnay and Meursault, all within 10-15km away.

On a Sunday morning visit the lovely market in Chagny (5km) and book into the 3 Michelin starred restaurant, Maison Lameloise, which is over 100 years old. Beaune (20km) also hosts a wonderful market twice a week and is home to many Michelin starred restaurants in the surrounding area. When visiting the wine capital of Burgundy, be sure not to miss the incredible Hospices de Beaune, an amazing landmark in France.

Dijon (65km) with its mustard stores and Cluny (63km) with its famous abbey are further highlights of Burgundy alongside the Roman town of Autun (38km) and beautiful Chalon-sur-Saône (25km).

Of course, Burgundy is also an amazing region for its outstanding natural scenery and there’s no better place to discover this than the Parc Naturel Régional du Morvan with its woodland, rolling hills, waterfalls and pretty villages. Whether horse-riding, cycling or hiking the landscapes are magnificent and there are also some great watersports available on the lakes and rivers. 

Public car parking is available on the street, free of charge, or you may prefer to arrive at the local train station, just a five-minute walk away. Those arriving by train can travel from Dijon to Chagny (5km), where you can pick up a local train to the village (or a taxi transfer). Alternatively, look at trains to Creusot-Montceau (26km) or Chalon-sur-Saône (25km) and a taxi transfer can be arranged from there.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
We bought the property in 2017 but our family has been present in the village for generations. We knew the former owners and were already familiar with the place. 

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
The winemaker's house is typical of the traditional architecture of these local 18th century winemakers' house. We find in particular the authentic side of the building, with the development of the stone and traces of the past (we have thus voluntarily made appear and let survive for example the old door frame of the press which bears witness to history vineyard of good). The house has both an intimate character very pleasant and a very appreciable refinement.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
Les Grands Crus was built in the late 18th century to accommodate winemakers linked with the powerful and noble family owner that lived in the immediate vicinity. The property was sold in the 19th century, probably on the occasion of a succession. Today, the ownership has gone full circle as descendants of the same family return to their roots and place of origin.
