This is a feature article by our good friend and fellow wine lover Ray. He and his wife Edna found this Burgundian gem in Puligny-Montrachet after making a thorough search on Vacation Rentals By Owner. We stayed with Ray and Edna in this rental last week and had a delightful time in the Burgundy wine region.
Burgundian Gem in Montrachet
If you’re ever in the Burgundy region of France, let me recommend a superb rental — 10 PM in the small village of Puligny-Montrachet, just 8 miles south of Beaune. The house includes three bedrooms each with an en suite bathroom, a totally-equipped modern kitchen, spacious and comfortable dining/living room, an outdoor patio and a ground level grassy area with lawn furniture and BBQ. The town boasts a one-star Michelin restaurant in addition to a number of smaller, cozy restaurants.
We rented the house for a week in late September. The weather was ideal and allowed us to explore the countryside eventually returning to a cocktail hour on the patio and a home-cooked meal. The hosts, Peter and Lucy, were quite attentive and accommodating. The house has all the modern conveniences including a washing machine, wi-fi, queen-sized beds, and an extensive library including a wealth of local guides.
We travel as a group of five and are unanimous in considering this to be the best and most well-appointed destination we have rented. You can research this property at VRBO.com. Take my word for it, you’re not going to find a better destination in Burgundy.

So glad you enjoyed your stay! You have captured that sumptuous morning light glinting off the local stone perfectly. We kept the stone walls in the living rooms exposed to reflect that feeling…
Warm regards from Burgundy.

No Mike, the new owner Michael Baum replied to your question on the Chardonnay.
Sounds like a very cool place. And the light – AT 10 PM – amazing.
Thanks for the tip and for the photo.
Enjoy! Kris & Jim
