Yes, you can stay in a nice hotel room anywhere, but to stay in an elegant room, up the twisting steps of the watchtower, in a manor with all the modern conveniences, hosted by a delightful young couple, to get a delicious breakfast, a dinner on request, and be only a few minutes from Beaune--that's an experience. My husband and I stayed at the manor for 3 nights in January and like other reviewers wish we could have stayed longer. For now there is only one room to rent, with another in the pigeon tower under construction.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At the top of the hill in the hamlet of Moux sits a distinguished manor house in pink tinted stone from the fifteenth century. It was the property of Guigone de Salins and Nicolas Rolin, founders of the Hospices de Beaune. A huge farmyard barn, majestic stone walls, a pigeon tower and rows of crops in the fields around - the panorama swings from the Mont Blanc to the western sun and the golden vineyards right in the heart of Burgundy. ... more less
