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

My girl-friend and I had a 2 night stay at this fantastic B&B. Marie Luce is very welcoming and helpfull with advise for trips in near-by. Our room was big with an equally great bathroom separate toilet. Superbly decorated with very comfy beds and lovely bed linen. The B&B is locate near the cathedral in a small street but we... 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

My husband and I had a 3 night stay at this fantastic B&B. We had been in France for 3 weeks and stayed at 2 B&Bs and 2 hotels prior to getting to the historic and interesting town of Autun. The previous B&Bs were great but this was the real winner. Marie Luce is very welcoming. She doesn't speak much... More

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)...

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.
