I was invited to come down and see the harvest of Louis Max in Mercurey and brought Jörgen who kindly enough offered to drive and on top of that invited me for dinner at my favourite restaurant, but thats another story.
The topic of this post being the newly found Bed & Breakfast of Marie and Yves in central Beaune. They offer 2 different double rooms and two larger appartements which comes with small kitchen etc. The biggest one havng living room – 2 seperate bed rooms and the the smaller one 1 bed room and room in living room for a fold-out bed. The appartements are priced at 110-135 eur depending on season and occupancy. The double rooms somewhat cheaper. The units – “gites” are situated just a 500 meter walk from dead center of Beaune.
Here is some shots to give you an idea, – its simple but with a touch of homely feel and clean and with an eye for small details. I loved the fact that the free internet code – was written on a piece of paper sticking out of a book on the side-board – with the title….Chez Marie 🙂 Nice.
When checking out the next morning we found out that a huge breakfast was actually included in the price, consisting of fresh croissants and baguette, which I by the way saw Marie pick up on her bicycle 15 min before 🙂 – homemade yoghurt, homemade musli, freshly pressed orange juice, homemade marmelades etc…sparkling water was added with a smile,
Chez Marie comes highly recommended. We shall be back for sure. The warmth and hospitality of our hosts is what you want when you stay outside your own home.
I shall leave you with a huge THANKS for making our stay memorable and with some shots from the 2015 harvest in Bourgogne.
