My husband and I are good friends of a life long friend of Philippe and Anne-marie Dufouleur who own Les Jardins de Lois. He recommended that we stay there on our way from Paris south. We arrived late and missed the entrance and so Philippe came out to the road and waited for us to come round again to flag us down. That was just the beginning of their gracious hospitality and most wonderful stay at their charming B & B. We were booked for just one night but extended it to two-we loved it so much! Through the beautiful wooden entrance gates lies a lovely compound of charming buildings and gardens with parking for your car. Our room was really a suite with large bedroom, sitting room and bathroom-absolutely beautiful! Lovely decor, great, roomy tub with super shower-all new and sparkling. Anne-Marie is a gracious hostess and William her assistant at breakfast is always accommodating. Breakfast was superb with the most delicious croissants, fresh orange juice, fruits, cereals, eggs to order if you wished. Philippe is a vintner and has his own cave on the premises. He usually holds a wine tasting in the late afternoon and his wines, both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir which we enjoyed very much, are available for sale. The famous "Hopital de Beaune" which is just across the road from the compound, is a must see and then it is only a short walk into the town center. Philippe's restaurant recommendations both nights were very good as well-local french clientele is always a good sign and delicious regional specialties. We were most fortunate to be able to stay with Philippe and Anne-Marie whom we now consider friends. Our stay with them was a highlight of our trip. We highly recommend them and their beautiful Jardins de Lois. A bientot!
