Ame de la Terre is one of the best of the many bed and breakfasts we have stayed in. Philippe and Simone have made a great job of renovating the property, but more importantly cannot do enough to ensure that you have an enjoyable and memorable stay. Food and drinks were both excellent and plentiful. Simone is a great cook,... More

My mother and I stayed in Ame de la Terre for three nights in early September for a short girls' trip and were so impressed by this little, family run hotel. The hotel is small, but new, clean and efficiently managed by Philippe and Simone--a charming husband and wife team. The personal service we received was beyond compare--better than I... More

We stayed in this lovely chambre d'hote in April 2013 for 5 nights. The hosts are warm and welcoming, our room (Calendula) looked just like they do in the photos - modern, comfortable, bright and airy - breakfast was delicious with a range of charcuterie, cheeses, fresh fruits, breads and pastries, with cooked-to-order options like eggs. The location is fantastic... More

Very disappointed with the location and total lack of facilities locally which I feel was not made clear prior to booking. The b&b is not in walking distance of any eating establishment on a night. After a 5 hour journey to get there we didn't want to travel for food. Simone advised we could order a pizza but had to... More

We stayed for one night on our way back from the South of France. Very clean, comfortable and welcoming. As others have said, the breakfast was wonderful and my daughter pronounced the waffles the best she'd ever had. We were exhausted from the drive so chose to get a pizza from the next village (10 mins) as mentioned by others.... More

I can't really add to all the praise that has already been given. This is a wonderful chambre d'hote which is also multi-lingual as far as i can tell. Lovely decor, very welcoming hosts and the most amazing breakfast i have seen in along time or maybe ever! Nothing seemed to be too much trouble, right down to setting us... More

We stayed here for one night on our way from Avignon towards Reims. This was an excellent place to stay in a peaceful village, yet only around 10 minutes drive into the centre of Dijon (which we loved!) Our room was superb, with stunning bathroom and nice little balcony to sit out on and relax. A very friendly owner who... More

J'ai été agréablement surpris de rester à Ame de la Terre. Notre hôte était très accommodant, aimable et bien informé sur le vin. Nos chambres étaient de première classe, très propre, confortable et moderne. Ils ont un petit mais merveilleux magasin de vin sélectionné, où vous pouvez acheter une bouteille et le déguster sur la terrasse. Le petit déjeuner était... More

We were two and a half weeks into a 3 week driving trip around (parts of) France. I fully endorse all of the previous reviewers' comments. As this chambre d'hote is located in a village just outside of Dijon centre you will need a car to access it but parking is not an issue and the location is very quiet.... More
