Pâque (Easter)-25 dec-1er Jan- Vendanges- et vente des vins de Beaune sont en High season!!
The house itself is good and nice. Large garden, but with a very small terrace for lunch/dinner etc. Large kitchen and bathroom. Place is perfect to walk, cycle and drive around the Bourgogne region. Owners and care-takers are very friendly and helpful.
The only negative is the bedrooms, more the fact there aren't bedrooms. The beds are on open places on the vide, separated by curtains. This means that for the noise everyone has to go to sleep at the same time. Regarding these "bedrooms", the house is perfect for 2 persons, I would not recommend it for 4 (as we were with two kids at the age of 18.)
We very much enjoyed our week in La Vieille Cuverie in the Clos d'Island d'Or in Meursault. We know the region very well so we knew in advance that choosing this holiday cottage in this perfect location would be like one week in paradise ! Surrounded by famous vineyards, quitly located in the rolling wine hills, but close enough to the village so that you can even walk to the restaurants and not be afraid to drink and drive. Hiking trails start from your doorstep and are well marked. Getting croissants and crispy baguette takes only 5 minutes by car ! Beaune centre with its numerous gastronomy shopping is close by and Veuve Ambal factory/shop is our favourite stop for Crémant de Bourgogne. In the Cave of Saint-Aubin you can buy affordable white wine which is as much smooth of taste like the more expensive Puligny-Montrachet, because its wine parcels are next to it. Beautiful Châteauneuf-en-Auxois above the canal de Bourgogne is only 35 km by autoroute and is a step into the past. Nearby take a stroll by the canal in Vaudenesse-en-Auxois and you have a different Burgundy landscape not far from Meursault. L'episode in Meursault less than 10 minutes on foot is a new, modern restaurant where East meets West and where they skip the traditional cuisine and put their focus on fusion. We enjoyed the weather, the neighbouring guests, the swimming pool, the view every morning out of the bedroom window towards the picturesque village of Auxey-Duresses. There is a walk from Volnay to Pommard and back which is outstanding. The walk from the statue of Saint-Christophe above the hill in Meursault is very nice. There are walks in every nearby village and they are all worthwhile. We will come back !
We had a great stay with 6 friends The house is situated at walking distance from the centre of Meursault. We enjoyed the BBQ, pool, wine and sauna. A highly recommendable place for pleasure hunters.
Das Haus ist sehr schön gelegen und die Betreuung vor Ort (Elizabeth) war sehr gut. Die beiden Schlafzimmer im OG sind nur durch Vorhänge getrennt - das war zuvor nicht ersichtlich und sollte klar dargestellt werden. Auch der Aufenthalt mit Hund ist nicht einfach, da das Gelände nicht umzäunt ist. Wir hatten schon sehr viel bessere Häuser in diesem Preissegment.
