I just spent three days at La Terre d'Or and that was a huge mistake ... I should have stayed a week! This delightful B&B is located on a hillside overlooking the town of Beaune in the heart of the famous Bugundy wine country. The buildings and surrounding gardens are lovely. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. And there's a pool and a jacuzzi. The breakfasts? Well, "superb" comes immediately to mind. The real charm, however, is that you're treated like old and dear friends by your host Jean-Louis, his son Vincent and the lovely Elodie, who is there to look after your every need. Both Jean-Louis and Vincent are real experts when it comes to the local wines and are available to take you on full- or half-day guided tours of the area, and that includes special access to small family-run wineries. In my opinion, you'll need a rental car -- or bicycles, if you're young or really spry -- because La Terre d'Or is a couple of miles (and uphill) from the center of Beaune where most of the restaurants and sites of interest are located. Just remember: decide how long you want to stay at La Terre d'Or, then add another two or three days.
