This is an exceptional house which has been designed with grace and style to the very highest of standards. High ceilings and minimalist yet sleek décor add to the great feeling of space in the vast living-dining room with perfect white furnishings against the dark tiled floors and impressive prints on the walls. The open-plan state-of-the-art kitchen is extremely well-equipped so you can create a Burgundian feast or even request a chef to cook for you and your guests.

A beautiful 17th century staircase winds upstairs with a backdrop of exposed stone, leading to three sumptuous bedrooms, all featuring air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs and ensuite Italian showers. There are two sensual double rooms with luxuriant bed-linen and designer furnishings as well as a splendid top-floor family room with three canopied double beds inspired by the nearby Hospices de Beaune, just a five-minute walk away and one of France’s most stunning historical monuments.

A private wine-tasting can be arranged in the maison’s own wine-cellar, found via a hidden staircase, a romantic and characterful spot that can be lit by candle-light where you can sample the finest wines from the Côtes de Beaune or Côtes de Nuits appellations. Or venture out into the streets of Beaune and find a quiet ancient wine bar in the capital of this wine-making region.

Beaune is also a food lover’s paradise with many Michelin starred establishments in the city and surrounding villages as well as an atmospheric market on a Wednesday and Sunday morning. Grab some local delights for a picnic by the little lake in Parc de la Bouzaire or wander around the picturesque centre of Beaune taking in the historical delights around you.

From Beaune you can follow the famous wine road, Route des Grands Crus, by bike or car, discovering wonderful wine-making villages set amongst idyllic vineyards such as Pommard (5km), Volnay (6km), Meursault (10km) and Puligny-Montrachet (12km). Or take the train to Dijon in under half an hour where you can visit the famous mustard stores in this beautiful an historic city.

The Wine Cellar is in the heart of Beaune, the wine-capital of the Côte-d’Or region in Burgundy. This is the perfect location for both the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits appellations.

The town is known for its excellent reputation in gastronomy as well as wine and there is a great variety of places to eat from Michelin starred establishments to more down to earth restaurants. There are many wonderful, ancient bars where you can sample some of the best local wines – the owner of The Wine Cellar will be able to advise you on the best places to go or even arrange a private wine-tasting in your own cellar.  Also, don’t miss the great market on a Wednesday and Saturday morning.

You are just a five-minute walk away from the famous 15th century Hospices de Beaune, one of France’s most stunning historical buildings.  You can also enjoy this beautiful city by taking a stroll along the city’s ramparts or simply explore the cobbled streets and historical buildings. Take a picnic to one of the local parks such as Park Bouzaise where you can hire boats on the little lake, visit the animal park or enjoy a picnic in the five hectares of green space.

Hire bikes to go out and about exploring whether along the Canal du Centre in Chagny (15km) or amongst the vineyards, discovering idyllic villages. This region also offers many wonderful marked hiking paths amongst some most spectacular landscapes as well as horse-riding in the countryside.

Indeed, from Beaune you can follow the famous wine road by car or bike, Route des Grands Crus, which includes wonderful villages such as Pommard (5km), Volnay (6km), Meursault (10km) and Puligny-Montrachet (12km) as well as idyllic vineyards across the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune region where you can sample some of the best wines in Burgundy.

Chagny (15km) is also a lovely place to visit with the Canal du Centre, ideal for walkers, cyclists or just a pleasant place for a picnic. It’s also the home to the 100-year old Maison Lameloise restaurant with its 3 Michelin stars as well as a delightful market on a Sunday morning.

If you are wanting to explore further afield there is so much discover. Historical Autun (50km) was founded by the Romans and features a beautiful cathedral in the old town as well as a lovely central square which hosts a market on a Wednesday and Friday morning.

Dijon (47km), which can be visited by car or train, is a historical city with a delightful old quarter and of course famous mustard stores whilst Cluny (80km by car) to the south is a stunning medieval village most famous for its abbey, a National Monument of France, once the largest in the western world.

Within an hour you can also be entering the incredible Parc Naturel Régional du Morvan where you can discover woodlands, streams and waterfalls, gentle rolling hills and hidden villages. This region is perfect for hikers, horse-riders and cyclists and there’s a great variety of watersports on one of the lakes or rivers.  To the north of the region is the wonderful hilltop village of Vézelay (119km) on the famous GR 654 walking path, one of the Santiago de Compostella routes.

Guests may arrive by train with a high-speed connection (approx. 1hr35mins) between Paris Gare de Lyon and Dijon, then only 20-30 minutes onwards to Beaune.

Reviews

  • Simplement parfait !

    on 31/08/2023

    Tout est simplement parfait dans ce magnifique établissement. Calme et sérénité outre l'accueil de l'hôte maîtresse des lieux.

  • Wonderful

    on 19/08/2023

    The host is the best, lining up dinner reservations at the best restaurants, and catering to your every need, including winery visits. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

  • Exceptional

    on 08/08/2023

    Great location of the house near the city centre, everything in walking distance. Nicely restored building where old and original elements are combined with new.

  • Fantastic stay and host

    on 22/07/2023

    The host is determined to meet the needs of her guests. Dinner reservations? Of course. She knows many of the top-end chefs personally. Special breakfast request? No problem. Want a bottle of wine from her private cellar? Pick what you wish and the price will be added to your bill. A great location in the heart of Beaune, everything you need is within a 10 minute walk. Would stay there again.

  • Brilliant!

    on 10/05/2023

    The Wine Cellar is one of the best places we've ever stayed in. The host is absolutely brilliant, starting with the great communications and restaurants recommendations/bookings, followed by the very warm welcome. The room was luxurious, a great bed and beautiful bathroom. The location is perfect, 3-4 minutes walk into the centre of gorgeous Beaune and also only 8-10 minutes drive north or south and your in the Cote-du-Nuits or Cote-du-Beaune. We were able to park outside to drop off our luggage and then the free parking area was only 2-3 minutes walk away. We will definitely be back and can highly recommend that you stay here if you are coming to Beaune! If we could give more than 5 stars we certainly would!

  • Magnifique, nous reviendrons !

    on 17/03/2023

    L'hôte est aux petits soins. La maison est juste magnifique, les chambres superbes et la literie top. L élégance, le raffinement en plein cœur de Beaune. Merci pour votre accueil, et pour les adresses. Nous reviendrons.

  • Lovely

    on 12/12/2022

    Exceptional, a very friendly welcome, and very comfortable. Right in the centre of Beaune.
