“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

What a wonderful little find - thanks to the Trip Advisor community. Two weeks into our 5 week European honeymoon we spent a delightful day and night in Ruffey les Echirey at the Ame de la Terre
We managed to secure the last booking and were very happy with it. A spacious, light, airy room with very comfortable bed, spacious bathroom with a proper hair dryer and towels that smelled fresh and homey, not sterile like in a hotel! We also had a little balcony, which had it not been raining, we would have loved to sit and share a wine on
Our hosts, Philippe and Simone were warm and welcoming, and fluent in English which certainly helped my limited French. Philippe was more than happy to recommend restaurants and things to do in nearby Dijon. We arrived on a public holiday so many restaurants were closed, we decided on pizza from a local pizzeria and wine from Philippe's cellar. Philippe very kindly offered to collect it for us and another guest couple who chose to spend the night in
Breakfast this morning was plentiful, cereal, fruit, croissants, cold meats, cheese, bread, juice, coffee, eggs... All fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. Nice to sit around the table with the other guests
We are off to Lyon now, would love to have stayed here longer

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. Unfortunately, we only had one night available in our itinerary to spend here, but certainly wished that we could have stayed longer. Luckily though, that was the night (Tuesday) that Simone serves a delicious meal, complete with wine selected by her husband Philippe (a sommelier). If you have the opportunity to indulge in one of Simone's dinners, then I strongly suggest that you make the most of it. We drove to the nearby tram station (plenty of free parking) and caught the tram into Dijon- very straightforward and stress free. We stayed in the Agastache room which is located on the ground floor and were so pleased to have a break from dragging our luggage up and down stairs! This room is also very large as it is designed for guests who are mobility impaired so we had plenty of space to spread oursleves out and relax. Thank you to Simone and Philippe for creating such a peaceful sanctuary that can be enjoyed by weary travellers.

Room Tip: If you want to avoid the stairs and have plenty of space, choose the Agastache room.

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 at the park and ride, very easy and in town in 15 minutes. Breakfast was lovely with lots of fresh fruit, pastries, beads, cheeses, eggs and meats.
Complimentary tea/coffee and cake was an added bonus especially as we had driven from Italy. You can also help yourself to beer and wine from the fridge and add it to your bill; there is even a nice garden to sit in if the weather is good.
We will definitely return, one of the friendliest and nicest places we’ve stayed.

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 hair dryer and bath robes
- breakfast is great with a lovely selection of food - cereals, eggs, cake, fruit, fresh bread, cheese, ham.... The list goes on
- option to have coffee / tea with cake and fruit all day (lovely touch!)
- wine and beer fridge in the seating are if you want a drink
- free parking on the street and nearby
- easy to get to from the motorway
- quiet location
- if you want to get to Dijon the tram stop is 5 min drive away with free parking - 1.20 each way and takes less than 15 min. So much easier than driving
- service from Simone is amazing - restaurant and wine recommendations and always making sure we had all we needed
- little wine shop is very practical and they give great advice
- free wifi

In a nutshell all you could need - a few hotels could learn a lot!

Truly made for a lovely stay for my husband's birthday - thank you! We will be back :-)

We (2 adults and 1 baby) stayed here twice; on our way to the south of France and on the way back home we decided to extend our holiday for one more day and make a stop over again; it is just fantastic. Great service, great rooms and great location!

Just a few minutes from the highway and from Dijon and still on a very peaceful location.

The service is very good and the owners are very friendly and service minded. Rooms are all new and the room we had was big with enough space for the baby bed. Rooms are modern and comfortable. Breakfast downstairs is very nice with good and fresh food.

Coffee and tea is fee, all day and wines and beers from the self-service bar are very reasonable prices.
Garden outside is lovely in the evening, where you can enjoy the silence of this peaceful place while sitting and enjoying your drink.

We stayed overnight on our way down to the South. Ame de la terre is perfect in every way - a lovely comfortable room with great attention to detail, fantastic breakfast with so much choice & a very attentive welcoming hostess.

We stayed at this lovely chambre d'hôte as we were visiting friends in the area, and it exceeded all our expectations. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and the breakfast varied and generous. Simone, our host, is a true professional with a warm and welcoming personality. We would have no hesitation in recommending Ame de la Terre and would definitely stay there again.
