About Peter Noble
We are a couple of travellers (the picture is of us in Iceland!) who pootle about between London, Catalunya and Burgundy with plans to take in a 'Grand Tour' of Europe over the next few years. We used to run our own (very serious) business until we escaped in summer 2012. Now we want to have fun, learn as much as we can and just be ourselves. We love France and wanted a home where we can see, hear, touch, smell and taste superb wine being made. We have designed and created 10pm for ourselves, our friends and family and like-minded guests. We love, food, wine, history, learning stuff, comfy seats, comfy beds, power showers, great art, great music, thoughtful literature, creating our own cuisine, entertaining, having fun and having peace and quiet in a shady garden. We want our guests to be able to experience the magical things we love with a little more than the basic touristic experience. For us it is the small things that make a holiday magic - having a pheasant or red squirrel visit the garden, seeing the grapes being taken to Olivier Leflaive's winery to begin the wine making process, strolling down to the bread shop in the morning to get warm croissants, walking up the road to pay homage to the great Montrachet grapes (perhaps taking a bottle and some fresh cheese with us), popping literally next door to taste Jean Chartron's complex, beautifully balanced wines... this is life! Then, when we are feeling more energetic, we will hop into the car (or a taxi) and travel a few kilometers to experience more history, geology and Burgundian life in the many surrounding villages and small towns. If, like us, you want to be in the centre of things but not surrounded by a heaving, noisy, smelly circus, then this is the place for you. Stay with us and we can help you to make your holiday that little bit extra special!
Peter Noble purchased this House in 2007
Why Peter Noble chose Puligny-Montrachet
Authenticity, comfort, conviviality, convenience, proximity to great wines!... We created 10pm with luxury in mind. The "Raindance" showers and the beds are big enough even for really tall people (so our US guests tell us!), the beds have deep mattresses and luxury linens. The kitchen is designed for people who love to entertain, full of the equipment you might need. It is peaceful but in the centre of the most famous white wine villages in the world and within a stone's throw of all the action - perfect! As well as the large garden, we have an enormous raised terrace from which you can see mountain and vineyards of Montrachet - wow! Dining al-fresco is also really easy as the terrace is just off the kitchen. Then, when you decide to stir outside... If you want to experience a unique immersion in the culinary and vinicultural treasures that Burgundy has to offer, this is the place for you. Burgundy is the home of some of the best wines in the world, red and white. Just think of the names - Montrachet, Vosne Romanee, Chambolle Musigny, Pommard. It is like a roll call of fine wines. At 10pm we are so lucky to have the three sisters of classic white wines, Puligny, Chassagne and Meursault on our very doorstep. By merely walking down the road you will be able to visit the actual vineyards with all the history and geographical specificity they convey, and visit some of the finest winemakers in the world. Wine tastings will allow you to see the range and quality of the wines, and have fun too. Wonderful local restaurants offer the best there is to eat, whether you want fine dining or simpler fare. Charolais beef, burgundy snails, fabulous local cheeses, home made charcuterie - wow! Explore the food shops and street markets to find glorious seasonal produce for a picnic or to eat at home, indoors or al fresco. Cycling and walks in the vineyards are great fun too and there are specific routes promoted according to duration and difficulty
What makes this House unique
Hopefully our reviews will give you an idea of how we look after our guests. Why battle through the crowded tourist areas to get home and have crowds milling on your doorstep at all hours? But the neither do you want to be in a remote spot a bit too far from other people. In our village you get the best of both worlds and, most importantly, a true Burgundian experience! This experience is for people who want to see village life, sitting in the bistro or fine-wine bar next to the very people who make the wine, and also want the ability to spend active days without always having to get into a car. Our house combines an authentic Burgundian home with great comfort, modernity in the right places, friendliness and conviviality with a great location which means you are not far from anything. 10pm is only a couple of hundred metres from the very centre of Puligny Montrachet, which is steeped in history. Our neighbours are some of the best known winemakers in the world and you can visit many of them (on foot!) to taste their creations. And, without even having to get into your car, you can easily reach the boulangerie, the local epicerie (grocery), the fine-wine bars (caveaux), four restaurants (including two Michelin starred restaurants), and Olivier Leflaive's famous wine tasting lunch. Beaune is just 12 kilometers away and there are many more wonderful sights, tastes and experiences even nearer, such as the three Michelin starred Lameloise just a short car ride away. You can also walk or cycle to Meursault or Chassagne with relative ease. Walk or cycle through the vineyards to get close to the grapes growing in those famous named plots of land. Of course you can stay at home and take advantage of the grounds - a large lawn and our very own 'vin inch' at the back of the house. Guests of 10pm also have exclusive access to the guest-only pages of our website which gives you little insights into the area, the cuisine and other little bits of magic

Experience the atmosphere of this world-renowned wine region
Who wouldn’t want to stay in a a house like this! Having just returned from a fortnight’s holiday here, the property exceeded our expectations. The owners have done a fantastic job retaining the innate character of the building while providing superb accommodation and top-notch equipment.
Each bedroom was spacious. The beds were supremely comfy with high quality bedding, and the en-suites were fitted out with a top quality shower and luxurious towels.
The kitchen lacked nothing (there was even a teapot - uncommon in French properties) and the attention to detail in the information pack helped us to quickly master the top of the range appliances. It also gave useful details of what was available in the village, and where to go for a larger shop.
If you like walking, there are several marked circular routes through the vineyards and up the limestone escarpment that overlooks the Route des Grands Crus. One such route begins from the village. Cycle routes are also available to make full use of the up to date cycles provided.
An unexpected bonus for us was that our visit coincided with the beginning of the vendange. The villages were buzzing with all the pickers and machinery. We felt we had experienced just a little of Burgundian village life which made the holiday extra-special.
Fabulous House to Explore Burgundy and Its Wines
One of best properties our family has ever stayed. We were a group of 6—2 adult couples and 2 grown children. We rented both the house & apartment.
1. Location, location location!!! In Puligny Montrachet the number one Chardonnay city in the world. Great restaurants and small quaint wine village surrounded by most amazing vineyards.
2. Perfect condition of the property. Main house with 3 comfortable bedrooms and 3 first class en-suite bathrooms with fabulous showers. Each has individual AC units and radiator heating.
3. Kitchen made for cooking and eating and drinking. Wonderful Carefourmart in Chagny 5 minutes away for grocery. Chagny also has super fun Sunday market.
4. Connected Apartment was large for either a single person couple or family. 3 bedrooms, small kitchen and one bathroom
5. So close to fine dining. 3 great restaurants in walking distance in town and one 20 minute walk to another village. Where we ate great food--casual dress everywhere;
a. Michelin 3 star Lameloise in Chagny--as expected amazing experience in a formal but casual environment. No suit coats required. Great value but not cheap.
b. Le Montrachet in town 3 minute walk. Should regain its one star rating this year--everything was perfect
c. L Estaminet in town 3 minute walk. Great beef fondue and wine for cheap price. Just good local place.
d. Ed Em in Chassagne Montrachet. 4 minute drive and 20 minute walk. Excellent Michelin 1 star in quaint old house.
e. Midupi in Nolay for Sunday lunch--so much fun. Just a couple running a small restaurant in great old town. Nolay is about 15 minutes away.
6. Pascal Wagner, our personal wine tour guide, sommelier and wine expert. This was the highlight of our trip. Pascal met us the first day to plan out a wine tour for the week. We ended up doing things under his guidance on 4 days. Private wine tour and great winery next door. Day in Beaune and visit to Patriarche and great restaurant. He joined us for dinner at Michelin 3 star on our last night and served as our wine expert for the night. Cannot say enough wonderful things about him. Our goal was to understand Burgundy wines better, an absolutely amazing experience.
7. The owners, Peter and Lucy. Cannot say enough about how easy to work with and helpful they were. Booking was easy. Security deposit came right back. They provided excellent advice on restaurants and things to do. They truly love delighting customers.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful review that brings a stay at 10 pm truly alive!
We really do want our guests to have the best time they can - we know that many of them have travelled a very long way, and all of them are expending precious holiday time visiting Burgundy.
You were wonderful guests and we do hope that you will consider returning to 10pm sometime soon.
With warm regards,
Peter and Lucy
10PM - A home from home experience in Puligny
Another brilliant stay at 10PM over Easter, the house abroad that I wish to own. Attention to detail and a generosity of spirit set Peter and Lucy apart as owners who care about their guests having a home from home experience. Bravo!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! You are too kind.
Thank you once again for being such great guests, for watering the new plants for us (before we even asked!) and for your care for Monia.
We look forward to your next visit - which is not that far away!
With warm regards,
Peter and Lucy
10 PM is an amazing property!
This was our best trip ever! Peter is a fantastic host, and the whole visit was perfect. We worked with Pascal Wagner as our guide in Burgundy. His office was just downstairs. He was an amazing expert and made our trip! We can’t wait to go back.
Thank you so much for your great review!
You were fab guests and we hope that you will consider returning to 10pm in the future.
With warm regards,
Peter and Lucy
Heaven among the vines!
This was our second stay at 10 pm and we have only high praises. Peter and Lucy have thought of everything to make this a comfortable stay including a bottle of wine from their vineyard in the back yard.
Located in center of the everything, it is so easy to go out and explore and come home to relax in the evening. The kitchen has everything you could ask for if you are inclined to cook at home, or if you'd just like to enjoy a glass of excellent Burgundy wine.
Spacious bedrooms, all ensuite, comfortable living area to kick back with family and friends, and laundry make this the best of the best. Peter and Lucy have recommendations to make exploring the countryside stress free for a marvelous holiday.
We highly recommend 10 pm and will definitely stay again. Thank you Peter and Lucy!

Dear Mike and Susan,
Thank you so much for your lovely review!
We do keep trying to think of ways of making 10pm more homely (although we are now running out of space for kitchen gadgets!).
The latest addition is the tumble dryer now that they are much ore energy efficient. We realised that more guests are staying for longer or coming to 10pm as part of a longer trip or are coming off-season when the clothes horse in the garden is less of an option.
Thank you for being such considerate, lovely guests. We are so pleased that you are considering returning to 10pm. Au revoir!
With warmest regards,
Peter and Lucy
Very comfortable house tastefully appointed.
Thoughtful owners who made everything easy and very pleasant. The property is close to Beaune and with lots of villages around that are fun to visit and go to markets. Many chateaux and abbeys. If you are interested in wines and wine making, this is the place to be.
Thank you so much for your lovely review! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay ay 10pm.
Thank you for being such charming guests and for your great patience and forbearance when we had to fix the front door, broken by the previous guests.
We hope that we can welcome you back to 10pm sometime in the future - hopefully when the Summer is not so very hot!
With warm ragards,
Peter and Lucy
In the heart of the World Heritage Site "Climats de Bourgogne", our very Burgundian but immensely comfortable holiday home, 10pm, is nestled in the highly prestigious, working wine village of Puligny Montrachet.
You will be living alongside some of the best wine makers in the world (including the lovely Jean-Michel Chartron whose Caveau is literally next door), close to the vineyards to which visitors from all over the world come to pay homage. You will be within walking distance of a Michelin starred restaurant, high quality wine bars and fab bistros.
You will be a mere 10 minute drive through the vineyards to the hustle and bustle (and tourist masses!) of Beaune, but will be able to come back to peace, quiet and space (both indoor and outdoor).
There are many historical and Oenological sites of interest within striking distance of our village. And the tastings available...!
You can do the "tourist bit" which is marvellous. But we can also help you to find one or two little gems that few others will find if they stay completely on the beaten track.
There are excellent connections from central Paris. It is also easily driveable from Paris, Lyon, Dijon and Geneva if you don't fancy Paris.
If you are serious wine lovers, interested learners or families/groups who want to do great things together but with enough space to chill out, 10pm in Puligny Montrachet is an ideal location in any season.
Spring, Summer, Autumn, even Winter (with some insider knowledge) in Burgundy is an absolute delight with lots of things to do, see and experience.
Puligny Montrachet is in the heart of the Burgundy wine region and is famed for producing the finest white wines in the world. In fact, as we said earlier, 10pm is next door to one of the best makers of Puligny Montrachet and other wines - Domaine Jean Chartron.
It is not an overly touristic village, so it is not noisy and hectic. But it is a working village, full of winemakers and so quite lively at times, with great local amenities.
As an optional extra, through our connections in the local wine business, you can have one or two experiences that are unique - visits to undiscovered winemakers, wine tastings at home (in our convivial open plan living room/kitchen) or in the vineyards, knowledge of local restaurants, wine makers and food producers that are currently 'on form' etc.
We are blessed to have two Michelin starred restaurants within walking distance of the house, Le Montrachet in our village and Ed Em in Chassagne Montrachet, a 30 minute stroll away through the vineyards. And the village Caveau de Puligny Montrachet ("the best Burgundy wine bar. Ever!") offers informal wine tastings of the finest selected local wines on their terrace.
Before we forget, and speaking of high class restaurants, Chagny, which is about three kilometers away, boasts one of the most famous restaurants in the world - the three starred Lameloise.
However, we must not forget that we are in France and the budget restaurants are very very fine too!
Our house is also a good centre for walking and cycling in the vineyards and around. An easy walk or ride away is Meursault, with its fabulous coloured roof tiled town hall.
Beaune is only 12 km away with its famous colourful Saturday market, the Hospices de Beaune, its beautiful architecture and its quaint, mainly pedestrianised, centre and some really interesting shopping.
Slightly further afield and well worth visiting are Chalon sur Saone (a lovely provincial town with a really good Sunday food market in the streets around the cathedral), Nolay (a small town with an historic centre and a medieval market building that must be seen), Santenay (a 'ville fleurie' with a lovely town square with a fabulous fountain, a casino and an outdoor swimming pool open in the summer months), the Cistercian Abbey of Citeaux. And of course you are just a short distance from some of the other famous names in Burgundy wine - Nuits Saint Georges, Pommard, Chambolle Musigny, Clos de Vougeot, Vosne Romanee, Meursault, Chassagne Montrachet etc, which each have their own character and of course their own vignerons, many of which offer tastings.
We are still exploring the surrounding areas and constantly finding new and interesting things to see and do.
Also unique to 10pm is our website with guest-only areas which give you exclusive insights and tips which will make your stay that bit more special. What cheese to try? Which is the best charcuterie? Where is it? What is it best for? What's on in Burgundy at the moment?
All of these things make 10pm and Puligny Montrachet one of the best places to stay in Burgundy.
