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.
