My family stayed one night at La Cimentelle in February and Stephan was very accommodating - he set up a baby cot for us and cooked us a delicious dinner and breakfast. I wish we could have spent more time there!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights as part of a driving tour of France. The house belongs to the owners and are now 4th generation. The surrounding gardens are beautiful as is the local countryside. The house itself is a quirky, characterful building with individually designed rooms and furnishings. Think staying with good friends who happen to... More

Thank you, Nathalie and Stephane, for a lovely week in Burgundy! We enjoyed our beautiful and cosy room, the charmes of house and garden, your excellent breakfast and dinner, and - last but not least - your warm welcome and helpful advice. We'd love to come again! Sabine and Michael

Returned to this B&B on a bike trip with friends and was not disappointed. The hosts are charming, helpful, accommodating and excellent chefs. 5 of us shared the Ernest family suite - lots of space with 3 bedrooms and 2 washrooms. The pool was refreshing after a day of cycling. Breakfast was outstanding, as was dinner.

Stayed in this beautiful accommodation on the way down to Cluny. It was a superb experience - gorgeous rooms and the best meal. The meal was all freshly prepared and beautifully presented. We travelled with our two girls. Highly recommended - we hope to stay there again.

When you have stayed in hundreds of lodgings, a few stand out in your memory. La Cimentelle is one! On our recent 3-week trip to the Burgundy and the Lyon area we stayed in 6 places and ate over 40 lunch and dinner meals. Our best lodging and our best meal, were under the same roof - La Cimentelle. I... More

We stayed at La Cimentelle for 1 night whilst driving back to the UK from Provence. We were travelling with our 4 children and arrived after a long drive. My comments about La Cimentelle are as follows: 1. It is convenient to the Autoroute and 2 hours from Paris (max). It is located in a rural location in an interesting... More

If there is a place you wish time could stop, then surely you would choose Stephane and Nathalie's gem in the heart of beautiful Burgundy... From the moment we arrived til the time we had to say bye, everything at La Cimentelle was spot on: a great place and lovely estate, a great and spacious room (from which the baby... More

We had 3 days here after a fantastic week on the Canal du Nivernais, and we felt it maintained the standard. Nathalie and Stephane Oudot run a Chambres D'Hote in a lovely old house that was built by the owner of a cement factory, now closed but with a swimming pool on top. The rooms are exceptional, the welcome is... More
