Best trip to Burgundy

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Pinot Noir was absolutely perfect. We loved the one of a kind design of the apartment. You can see that it was lovingly made by hand from custom materials. It had everything that we needed for a week. We borrowed the bikes one day and rode along the canal with lunch at a local restaurant. The owners are great hosts.

Owner's Response: Thank you Edith and Mohan for your kind review and also for your comments in the Guest Book in the apartment. You were delightful guests and Mohan's contribution of a delicious Indian meal for Christopher's birthday was very much appreciated. We hope we will have the pleasure of your company again some day at En La Marre. Best wishes. Judith & Christopher

A haven of peace

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Pinot Noir eleven times: that should give an indication of how much we love it! It is clean, and attractively furnished and there is everything you need in the kitchen and on the terrace for outdoor eating. The on-site owners do all they can to assist but do not intrude. They always invite new guests for a drink in their area on arrival to give bits of information. A weekly barbecue is on offer at which guests bring a dish and any food for the barbecue. This is always good fun and plenty of good Burgundian wine is drunk. There is much to do in the area but we just enjoy the total relaxation of En La Marre - the pool is where I spend most of my time reading or swimming or just talking to other guests. Le p'tit Kir is a lovely canal side restaurant in nearby St Leger d'Heune and well worth a visit. There are many more on offer too. I thoroughly recommend Pinot Noir - try it, you won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: As mentioned Ian and Imelda have been coming to En La Marre every year for the past 11 years. They stay for 3 weeks (next year they are threatening to stay for 4!) and from their comments you will see why. For them as busy teachers we offer everything they need to switch off from their hectic lives. They have become dear friends and the time they spend with us is always enjoyable and great fun. Roll on next year!
