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

Thank you so much for this wonderful review. When you left, we felt sad, as if friends had gone. We enjoyed every minute of your stay with us and sincerely hope to see you back home again. Do not hesitate to visit us if your are back on the "Burgundy road". 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. For the traveler who would know how to appreciate the tranquil burgundy countryside, this would probably be the... More

After many enjoyable stays at our favorite stopover in France whilst en-route to Spain, friends have asked me what really makes Carpe Diem so special? I always respond by saying that Patrick and Eric are genuinely pleased to welcome their guests. The warm welcome really gives guests a feeling of being able to relax and feel at home.

We stayed here on the recommendation of friends who had stayed here twice. They raved about it so much that we found a night we could stay on route to another area. My only disappointment is that we didn't have more time here. Patrick and Eric were both very welcoming and went above and beyond to help us solve a... More

From the warm welcome we received on our arrival, to the lovingly restored and beautifully appointed farm house and bedrooms, and the not to be missed dining experience, all led to our unforgettable stay. We didn't want to return home! So we have booked our return visit with dinner every night. Merci and a bientot Patrick and Eric

After spending four wonderfully restful nights at this lovingly restored establishment located in Massangis, a small village in rural Burgundy, I can honestly say that I now understand the concept of being pampered.

My husband and I were fortunate enough to rent an apartment in Paris for the month of September. We planned to go to Carpe Diem as we had been there before four years ago for several nights.
