A welcoming, polite hostess - Marie-Luce Lequime runs La Maison Barbe beautifully. Delightfully furnished bedroom in an historic home in the middle of Autun. Breakfast could not be bettered. An extremely enjoyable stay, highly recommended.

We were absolutely charmed by this late medieval canon's residence and the warmth of Marie-Luce as our hostess. We arrived much later than expected, during a rainstorm, but she guided us in by phone down the tiny winding streets of the old quarter and greeted us out front with umbrellas. Her hospitality continued during our stay in many ways. We... More

We enjoyed an excellent 3 night stay at the Maison Sainte Barbe in the Cathedral area of Autun. Our welcome by Marie-Luce Lequime was warm and we were made to feel immediately welcome. The B&B is located in a house which dates back to the C15th and is now a National Monument(!), having been built originally to accommodate the canons,... More

This B&B, a converted convent, is located two minutes from the cathedral. My room and bath overlooking the garden were very spacious and well-appointed with quality linens. Breakfast was good and although no hot foods or cereals were served, it was more than adequate with numerous types of fresh fruit, several types of breads (including those made by the owner)... More

Old school charm right next to the cathedral. A bargain at 75 € / night (including breakfast). It's not luxurious, but quint, most definitely. Tip: Have dinner at Le Chapitre right around the corner. The best dinner during our trip to Burgundy so far.

I stayed here with my family this summer, 4 of us. We expected an average B & B but got a little apartment to ourselves at B & B prices. The owner was charming and helpful, and we could come and go as we liked and use the garden which was great as the weather was good. The breakfasts were... More

Our room was huge, beautifully decorated and quiet. The owner was very helpful with dinner recommendations. Location is excellent, beside the cathedral, a short walk from the main square. Breakfast was very good.

If you love historical buildings like myself, it is a dream come true. Right in the middle of the old center, this former monastery is the absolutely perfect location to stay. It also has a beautiful little garden to enjoy a pre dinner drink (on second thoughts, I should have used it for breakfast, too). Despite all this old world... More

This 15 century building is very unique.For the price and location you can't beat it. The hostess is accommodating (as we arrived early and our room was not yet ready). She even helped me get my car out of a steep hill parking that had me a bit worried. The breakfast was typical and fresh honey was delicious and unusual... More
