Guestbook comments from the owner

Ein sehr schöner Urlaub in einer wunderbaren Gegend, die uns mit ihren

kulinarischen Leckereien verwöhnt hat.

Mit Judith und Chris haben wir tolle Gastgeber erlebt, die uns über

etliche Widrigkeiten bei der Organisation unserer Reise hinweg geholfen

haben.

Die Anlage ist sehr schön gelegen. Wir hatten das Appartment "Pinot

Noir" bewohnt, das stilecht und rundum gut ausgestattet ist - wir haben

uns richtig wohl und heimisch gefühlt.

Vielen Dank an unsere Gastgeber. Es wird bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal

gewesen sein.

Comments from Owner Guestbook

'We have had the most wonderful week - weather too, in this lovely tranquil setting. Our hosts Judith and Chris made us feel so welcome. We have enjoyed exploring all the areas around, sampling the restaurants and of course the wine. We are coming back next year for another helping of the good life' - Sarah and Ivan Cox, Northamptonshire
'What a wonderful introduction to our first visit to Burgundy. After a long journey from Ottawa, we were warmly received by Chris and Judith with a glass of red wine. Like others before us we have found En La Marre to be an ideal location to discover and explore the wine villages of the region. We plan to return!' -Annette Bourgeois and George Plant, Ottawa, Canada
'We had a wonderful stay at En La Marre with Christopher and Judith as our wonderful hosts. We enjoyed the markets, fresh cheeses, saucisson and pate and enjoyed cooking Burgundian food in our gite' - Lori and Andy Mazor, NYC, USA.

We loved it !

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely week here in PInot Noir, a massive apartment on the first floor of the original farmhouse. Private terrace was a bonus we could sit there sampling the local wine only in the company of the cows in the field below and of course the occasional visit from Muffin the dog !
Judith and Chris are experienced hosts and it shows, from the welcome drinks to the Thursday barbeque. Both above and beyond. But they let us get on with the holiday and we knew they were there if we needed them !
We would highly recommend this area for walking, cycling, vineyards, history, markets everything you expect in rural France.
Thank you we loved it!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, both in our 70's, spent a delightful week at En La Marre the end of May. It was our first trip to Burgundy and we found ELM perfect for trips to Beaune, Autun, Louhans, and the Cot d'Or. Chris and Judith wre perfect hosts. Our upstairs apartment was spacious and comfortable, the kitchen fully equipped, and the bathroom large with excellent shower. We really enjoyed living in the gorgeous countryside amongst a herd of Charolais but close enough to Couches for daily bakery visits and fine dinners at nearby restaurants.

Owner's Response: Thank you Watt for your favourable comments on your holiday at En La Marre, both the apartment, facilities and surroundings. We very much enjoyed your company and especially during our weekly barbeque with your tales of life down south in S.Carolina, so different from our life in Burgundy. We do hope we may have the pleasure of your company here on another occasion in the future.

Best wishes to you both
