Welcome to 10pulignymontrachet (10pm for short) our luxury holiday home for wine lovers in Puligny Montrachet, Burgundy.
Your very own authentic but deeply comfortable village house, close to the tourist action in Beaune etc but nestled in peace, quiet and luxury amidst the best white wine vineyards in the world - now with the added charm of being within a UNESCO World Heritage site!
Having said this, it is also within walking distance of two Michelin starred restaurants, wine bars and bistros!
Here is our description...
A very spacious but cosy, lovingly refurbished, traditional vigneron's house (sleeps either up to six or up to 10 if you include the optional addition of the annex - see below) in the very heart of wine making country, in Puligny Montrachet, near Beaune, Burgundy.
The house is very traditional, but the plumbing, the kitchen amenities and the size and comfort of the beds are not!
The whole property consists of the Main House and the Little House which were originally a family house and its granny annex, separated by a very thick Burgundian stone wall, so well insulated from each other (and the cold/heat).
You can take the Main House in the knowledge that you will have exclusive use of the house, the gardens and the patio/terrace areas. We will not let the Little House to anyone else if you are staying in the Main House.
If you are a larger party, there is also the potential to rent its equally spacious, completely self contained, 'Little House' (sleeps four additional guests in two double bedrooms with one shared bathroom, see the separate tab).
Both were completely renovated to offer luxury accommodation, combining original features with modern facilities, including some very atypical plumbing (ie powerful 'Raindance' showers)!!
We like to be comfortable, with lots of space, large beds, luxury bedding and mattresses, a kitchen made for entertaining and the rest of it. This is our holiday home, so it includes all of the features that we love.
Our architect is obsessed with getting the greatest amount of natural light into a home as she can possibly manage, and she has managed this particularly well! This adds to the feeling of light and space in both properties.
See the details of the accommodation below and the photos of our lovely holiday home in Burgundy. Please note that photos of the Little House are towards the bottom of the photo gallery.
As an extra treat, we have connections with wine makers, and experts in the area who may be able to offer you, at a modest cost and as convenient for you, a completely bespoke experiences and consultations on your voyage of discovery...
They can help you to organise visits to special wineries, private wine tastings in the house accompanied by the finest local food, inside information on the best restaurants to suit all budgets, fun wine education sessions etc.
But this is your choice. You will be equally happy if you want to run under your own steam.
The main house, which we update every year comprises:
Three spacious double bedrooms with deeply comfortable mattresses and classic décor, each with a luxury en suite shower room. Each bedroom is individually designed to reflect a season of the year in Burgundy.
A separate family bathroom, overlooking the vines, with a cast iron roll top bath and stone and marble tiling.
A large open plan, bright living room with a fully fitted American-style modern kitchen. We have designed this space with conviviality in mind so that you can cook and interact with friends at the same time or share a wine tasting at the central island. Extra little luxuries include the wine fridge and the Krups espresso coffee maker and also the filter coffee maker.
The dining table in the Main House seats 10 so that, even if you are using both houses, you will dine together.
There is a very large private terrace just outside the front door with a large table and chairs where you can relax and have an outdoor meal, a quiet aperitif in the evening or simply watch the village life go by or gaze over the Montrachet vineyards.
The garden is large, verdant, peaceful and totally private. It provides both sun and shady spots as you wish. Two large bistro-style garden tables and 10 chairs, eight comfortable recliners, a large 'bistro' sun shade and outdoor lighting are there for guests' use.
To the rear of our house is our small vineyard - the 'vininch' as we like to call it. It boasts the only red grapes in the village (those of you who are into your wine will know the reason for that!!).
There are laundry and ironing facilities, a secure storage space for your wine, and secure off street parking.
We have WiFi broadband and sound system and a (very discrete) television! Get to know each other again instead of using all that kit... Or use your wireless devices to pick your own web based entertainment.
The central heating keeps it warm in winter and the very thick walls keep it cool in the summer and quiet all year round.
We also have a combined heating/cooling air conditioning system through which guests can control the temperature in each individual room.
The Little House (which is not so little!) is available to rent as an addition to the main house from spring to autumn. It may be available separately in winter when the gardens will not be in use, depending on circumstances. It comprises:
Two classic and spacious double bedrooms with deeply comfortable mattresses and unique décor. The rooms in this house reflect French-speaking countries, Mali, Senegal, Tunisia...
A fully up to date bathroom with a spacious and powerful 'Raindance' walk-in shower.
A large and airy through living/dining room with views over both our vineyard at the back, and the front terrace.
A separate fully fitted modern kitchen also with views over our vineyard.
What makes 10pm one of the best places to stay in the Beaune area? Comfort, conviviality and location!
What makes Puligny Montrachet one of the best places to stay in Burgundy? Wine-village life, good amenities, not choc full of tourists, some of the very best wine makers in the world, access to so many other places!
We have designed and created 10pm for ourselves, our family and our friends. We want to attract guests who will feel completely at home and appreciate the care we have put into making their stay as excellent as possible.
