We spent two nights here and were very warmly received. The house, as other reviewers have noted, is very old but attractively renovated and furnished with loads of character. Our room was a good size and comfortable; the bathroom had a tub and hand-held shower attachment which worked fine. We had to leave early the second morning and asked if... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Mason de Barbe for one night – but next time we’ll return for longer. The house is beautifully renovated – with taste and style. The furnishings are gorgeous antiquities, and the rooms warm and welcoming. We were greeted by Marie-Luce and her young son – our smiling hosts were thoroughly helpful; hospitality... More

Tucked away, this small 15th Century Gites de France was charming. Our room was spacious, bright and sunny with an updated bathroom. The only negative for us was a tub with only hand held shower but some travelers prefer this. Coffee and tea are readily available in the dining room. While a continental breakfast was served without an option for... More

We had a spacious room with a nice bed, warm shower, everything we needed. It is in a perfect location for exploring Autun, right next to the cathedral, near a number of good restaurants, and within walking distance of the ramparts. Our host was extremely kind and we enjoyed our stay. The Wifi is a bit spotty because of the... More

Returning from a boating holiday in Burgundy I wanted to stay in Autun and this B&B caught my eye. I don't think that I have ever stayed in a B&B before so it was a big decision. It is situated in the old town right next to the Cathedral and I believe its former use related to the Cathedral. Madame... More

The Maison Sainte Barbe is an ancient place right next to the cathedral (which is famous for its romanesque carvings). It has been done up to a high standard, and offers spacious rooms with a warm welcome and a good breakfast.

We chose this as our stopover between Calais and Provence. It has excellent flexibility in terms of shared and family rooms. It is quite as beautiful as the other reviews suggest and the streets around it are stunning too. Great breakfast, great price.

I am cycling across France alone and booking chambre d'hote through the tourist offices in towns on the way. I found this one by chance after a tough 155 k ride and was bowled over by the kindness and friendly welcome from Madame. My room had a bath, bliss and was a spacious elegant place. I slept really well and... More

At the end of our walk on the GR 13 from Vezelay to Autun we afforded ourself the luxury of staying at Maison Sainte Barbe. And what a place it is! This historical building, in the very centre of Autun, just behind the cathedral, has a lovely garden, a winding staircase and amazing, classical rooms. Our room had a very... More
