We have had the good fortune to travel extensively throughout this beautiful country and have stayed in many wonderful hotels. But among our very favorites is Carpe Diem, a very special and unique place - in large part because of its extraordinary hosts, Patrick and Eric. The home they have restored and furnished with magnificent antiques is exquisite and will... More

From our arrival to our leaving the experience at Carpe Diem was flawless. Patrick and Eric are two of the kindest and most helpful hosts that Chablis and probably all of France have to offer. Beyond their personal traits they offered their lovely home to us complete with a carefully appointed room, expansive and delicious breakfasts, and the charm and... More

Everything was perfect. The reception upon arrival was perfect. The room was perfect. Most surprising were the dinners .... Eric & Patrick deserve the Michelin Guide nod. My husband and I simple cannot wait to return. We spent the last few days of our stay at another B&B from where we dreadfully missed Carpe Diem. We definitely will be back!

As all the reviews attest, this is a magnificently restored home, with many a beautiful antique and special touch in every corner of every room and space. It is clear the owners care about every inch, and have grand taste. It lies in a quiet village, in a central location which is perfect for your visits in every direction to... More

Patrick and Eric are wonderful hosts. The rooms are beautifully presented and Eugenie was just perfect for us. Breakfasts were amazing (home made brioche, yogurt etc., smoked salmon, great spread. Don't miss dinner, the salon for aperitifs then a fabulous table setting and sublime food and wine. Patrick makes sure the conversation flows, we were British, Belgian and Finnish and... More

Once again TripAdvisor came through with a superlative place to stay that enhanced our trip to France. The rooms were large, immaculate, and delightfully furnished. The bath was a remarkable find for Europe, large and very well appointed. Patrick and Eric could not have been kinder or more accommodating. They were invaluable in planning trips to sights around the area.... More

We have to thank Tripadvisor for this wonderful find.

Patrick and Eric deliver a faultless experience. They are both very welcoming; the house and it's rooms are immaculate, with great attention to detail. Meals are served at one big table so the chances are you will have to share with other guests. This was great fun, as we got to chat with other guests and to practise some of... More

We've stayed with Patrick and Eric twice now and both times were fabulous. The rooms, the house, the food and the hosts are completely delightful. We partook of the table d'hote on both occasions and each was utterly scrumptious. I'm vegetarian but this was not a problem. They even checked what they had cooked for us the first time so... More

We stayed 3 nights in this beautiful location. Carpe Diem had been recommended by a work colleague, and we were not disappointed at all. The bedrooms were immense, with fabulous bathrooms, with every requirement imaginable available. As last minute guests, we had to change rooms, which was not a problem to us. Both rooms were amazingly beautiful, with many personal... More
