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

We were absolutely delighted with our stay here, what a find! Simone is simply the ideal hostess, she couldn’t do enough for us and made us feel welcome and at home. The room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed; bathrobes, hair dryer, bottled water , free wifi etc. We took the tram into Dijon and left the car... More

When I first found this B&B on trip advisor, I was immediately suspicious as the ratings seemed too good! Having being there my self, I can say the rating is truly deserved. It is a lovely bed and breakfast with really lovely service - rooms are clean, new, with a massive double bed and with all you need including a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dijon, the capital of Burgundy, is situated in the very heart of this region. It is surrounded by world-famous cultural monuments.With its countless sights and its distinctive charm, the town is well worth a visit.In Ruffey-les Echirey, which is only 4 km outside Dijon, we have renovated the family-owned 19th century manor house andhave furnished five ecological rooms in the former barns. This is more than a hotel: We would like to offer you a comfortable temporary home. ... more   less
