B&B near Auxerre and Dijon in Burgundy France

ID: 424
This charming bed and breakfast near Auxerre and Dijon in Burgundy is a great ski stopover for your journey to the Alps. It's just 15 minutes South of junction 23 of the A6 autoroute.

For a longer stay, the little village is within easy reach of the Burgundy vineyards around Beaune. Or why not head out to explore the cultural cities of Dijon, Autun and Avallon which are also all just 40 minutes away by car. A visit to the champagne region or to Chablis are also very doable during your stay at this guest house accommodation in Burgundy.

There are some fantastic walks in beautiful countryside within easy reach and many lakes with stunning scenery to be explored. There is so much to see and do around this area.

Why not stay for a few days and explore more of Burgundy. Even the mountains of the Jura are only 2 hours away and the ski resorts of Les Rousses and Chamonix and Geneve are all within 3 hours.

The spacious Merchant House, built in 1872, has been tastefully updated by the present owners. It's furnished with English family antiques and hand-made curtains which compliment the country furniture.

The 4 bedrooms are decorated with only the finest 'Laura Ashley' linen to keep you cool in the summer, with luxurious warm duvets to keep you warm in the winter. You will see fresh flowers from the garden throughout the house which fill the rooms with a Burgundian aroma of scents. During the winter, sit by the log fires and read your book with a café or chocolate chaude.

The two acre garden has views of the village river valley, the village church and distant hills and forests. All very peaceful and a lovely place in which to escape, relax and explore.

Guests are welcome to wander around the gardens, have a game of Pétanque (Boules) on the pitch nestled under the shade of trees. Breakfasts are served in the dining room off the main kitchen where you can look out over the formal gardens and beyond to the Serein valley and the Morvan park areas of Burgundy.

Dinner will be served in the dining room (with log fires in winter). A varied menu is offered including traditional Burgundian fayre and fresh vegetables and fruit which are grown in the owner's potager, with dairy produce coming from the local farmers.

My wife and I stayed at this bed and breakfast accommodation in Burgundy on 29th December last as arranged. It was a wonderful experience. Even though we only saw the house in the dark of winter it was most agreeable and set in lovely countryside between Auxerre and Dijon in Burgundy. Our hosts are a delightful couple who made us most welbcome. We were made to feel as if we were old friends. The room was clean and tastefully furnished as was the rest of the property. As for the meal it was haute cuisine of a very high standard with great care being taken to introduce us to some local dishes. It was a visit which we hope to repeat and we shall certainly be recommending it to our friends. - the Sanders

You asked for feedback on our return and i will gladly tell you that this delightful B&B ticked all our boxes! What a fabulous house and the welcome we received was just so fantastic, we felt as though Mr & Mrs Williams were old friends they were SO kind and made us feel so at home, nothing seemed too much trouble and our 2yr old daughter was made to feel extremely welcome and loved every minute of her stay. Our only regret was that we had not booked to stay here on our way through France a t the beginning of our holiday as our first B&B made us feel rather uncomfortable. We would highly recommend this wonderful B&B and really hope that we can return as one night was just not enough!! - the Gumbrells
