Bed & Breakfast

Extraordinary: gourmet food, attentive hosts, rooftop pool, handsome manor. Take time exploring bucolic Burgundy between Auxerre and Dijon


9 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 6


After an astoundingly beautiful drive you reach this handsome family house built by titans of the cement industry at the turn of the last century: now a pool sits on top of the old factory. Come for extraordinary food (both hosts are gourmet cooks), thoughtfulness, friendly chat and the loveliest rooms. Three are works of art and a touch of fun: a Murano mirror, an antique desk, pink faux-baroque wallpaper and stunning white linen curtains. Swish bathrooms shine with monogrammed towels and showers of Italian mosaic. Family suites at the top of the house are huge. Don’t miss it, you’ll need at least two nights.

What a beautiful place to stay! A relaxed and warm welcome from the start from the lovely Natalie and Stefan. They were fantastic hosts always offering recommendations for places to go and so helpful with booking tickets etc. The pool was great and a real bonus, the room was big and beautiful and the food was amazing! I could go on.....

Great location and wonderful peaceful setting. Our bedroom was stunning and overlooking the extensive gardens. We had dinner in the gardens as we had not booked for what looked like great dining - and the breakfast indicated it was probably as good as it looked! Both Nathalie and Stephane have excellent English and are great hosts.


We travel a great deal for work and this is now one of our favourite B&Bs. This was our second visit which was even better than our first. Natalie and Stefan have just the right mix of informality and professionalism. The house and rooms are comfortable and very pleasant and dinner is to die for, on both occasions we met fascinating people and a wonderful time was had by all. I couldn't recommend this place more highly.
