We spent three nights in the 'Ludivine' room, which was perfect for us - large and tastefully decorated with a generous bathroom and walk-in shower. Having peeked in the other two rooms in the main house we were really pleased with our choice (we like a shower) but all the rooms were beautiful. The location is great for visiting Chablis,...

Patrick and Eric are the best hosts ever! We couldn't have asked for a better start to our Burgundy fortnight. Carpe Diem has to be one of the most relaxing places we've ever stayed at. Thank you guys, it was the greatest.

My family and I enjoyed a delightful two nights in the lovely home of Patrick and Eric. Massangis may not be the hot spot for the tourist crowd to visit, but Carpe Diem is reason enough by itself to go. You will probably, like us, wish you were staying longer. Wonderful breakfast, and a dinner you most definitely should not... More

Patrick and Eric have a beautiful home and made us (my husband and I) feel very welcome during our five night stay! Their attention to detail is everywhere in their beautiful, immaculate and meticulously converted farm house. The meals were homemade using locally sourced ingredients. Getting up for breakfast or returning "home" (and it did feel like home) after a... More

We booked a stay at Carpe Diem for 8 nights and were very pleased we had the chance to stay in such delightful accommodation in such a beautiful region of France. The room (Eugénie) was beautifully appointed, not surprising as the hosts Patrick and Eric have decorated their home so tastefully. Not only were the breakfasts and dinners outstanding and... More

We stayed in Carpe Diem last Summer during a leisurely road trip through France, and can truly say it is the best B&B we have ever stayed in anywhere, bar none! Patrick and Eric are most genial hosts, and the house itself is tastefully and immaculately decorated, making it a most peaceful place to stay in. The food is home... More

We recently travelled to the Burgundy region of France and were lucky enough to find Carpe Diem; we had read the great reviews of other travellers on Trip Advisor and it exceeded our expectations. We originally booked the cheaper of the rooms, which was smaller but just as tastefully decorated as the others. Upon arrival a guest had cancelled at... More

Four of us were traveling through Burgundy. We had made the reservation for Carpe Diem prior to leaving the US. It was a great move! Carpe Diem is a converted farm. Patrick and Eric have done a wonderful job of making it very cozy and comfortable. The breakfast was wonderful - maybe the best we had in France. We wish... More

We have stayed here earlier and this time spent a week. We consider Patrick and Eric good friends and believe their dinners get better with each stay. There is secure parking and the room and bathroom were both excellent. We had a great time and really enjoyed the food and wine.

After visiting Carpe Diem, we found ourselves in an interesting situation - we considered changing our entire vacation plans for next year due to our outstanding experience. Every aspect of hospitality is at the highest level, and for a very reasonable price.
