About Rodney and Lesley Steel

My wife and I grew up in Paris, and we are now working in Reims. We both lived and worked abroad, and our kids were born in Florence, Italy. We enjoy outdoor activites, and Pommard is perfect for a familly break, have a nice walk in the wineyards and enjoy an excellent glass when you're done.

Rodney and Lesley Steel purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Rodney and Lesley Steel chose Beaune area

I moved from Japan in 2005 to work in the oil & gas industry in Burgundy (yes, it's possible !), but really wanted to find a place I could finally call home after many years abroad. I found in love with Pommard. The apartment reflects all the trips my family international exposure. It's probably unique in Pommard, and you'll stay in a place with artifacts from Cameroun, Japan, New Caledonia, China, Indonesia matching the typical burgundy style construction.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is situated just in front of the Pommard castle; you can go there in a minute. The place was entirely refurbished in 2005 in a very good taste, keeping the ancient structure. The walls are made of stones, and the curved timbers were used on boats more than 200 years ago. All guests we have received so far have enjoyed staying at Pommard.

Great Space in a very nice location

  • 5 of 5

Property is as advertised, very spacious bright and clean. Overall rating is 5 but a couple of minor improvements would be great.

Location is very convenient and secure. This is a perfect place to cycle out of for numerous rides.

Recommendations:

1) Espresso maker is badly needed as the coffee maker is not quality. You will not find a good coffee in Pommard and did not find one in Beaune.

2) As this area is a foodie's heaven a few more cooking utensils would be very much appreciated - salad spinner, cheese slicer, etc...

3) Common outdoor area could use a charcoal grill

Wunderschöne Wohnung

  • 5 of 5

Über Auffahrt haben wir ein paar traumhafte Tage in "Les Epenots, Clos de Pommard" verbracht. Sowohl die Online-Reservierung, die Kontaktaufnahme mit dem Besitzer und abcbourgogne, die Zahlungsmodalitäten sowie die Anfahrtsbeschreibung inkl. Instruktionen über die Key-Box waren professionell.

Die 2-stöckige Wohnung ist wunderschön und liebevoll eingerichtet mit vielen persönlichen Gegenständen der Besitzer, grosse Zimmer, eine lichtdurchflutete Küche, sämtliche Apparate wie Backofen, Toaster, Geschirrspül- und Waschmaschine sowie Mikrowelle vorhanden. Das Apartment war sehr sauber.

Wir würden diese Wohnung jederzeit weiter empfehlen.

Vielen Dank an die Besitzer, dass sie ihre Wohnung anderen Leuten zur Verfügung stellen. Wir haben es sehr genossen.

Great Location in Burgundy

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, spacious, comfortable and well-equipped apartment in Pommard. The owner's artwork and memorabilia throughout the apartment were wonderful and make you feel like you are in someone's home, not just the usual Ikea showroom. Although the lounge is large and comfortable enough, we particularly enjoyed sitting and cooking in the large kitchen with its huge windows that let in lots of light. Kitchen was well-equipped for our needs, including morning coffee. Nice, too, that all of the manuals/instructions are available for someone not used to European appliances. All arrangements were easy to make via email with Rodney. Since we were arriving by car from Switzerland, we were glad to have a lockbox for the key and not have to meet someone at an exact time to let us in (or to check us out). We had reserved bicycles from Bourgogne Randonees (be forewarned that they often are sold out, particularly in September and October), so spent several days exploring by bicycle. Lots of small roads to bike on, not just the marked trail through the vineyards. For dinner out, we like Le Terroir in Santenay. Corinne is a delight. Our week went quickly and we hope to return next year to this apartment to do the many things that we didn't have time to do (and sample more wine, of course). We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to be in one of the small villages in the Cote de Beaune.

Where "luxury" is not an exaggeration

  • 5 of 5

As the other reviews have suggested, this is an outstanding place to stay. Extremely comfortable, pleasant, and well equipped; it is an ideal base from which to explore the Cote de Beaune. We used it as a base for exploring the Cote d’Or for a week this past November and loved coming home each evening to relax and enjoy our culinary and viniferous finds. The lovely village of Pommard is large enough to provide places to shop and fine restaurants; and it is small enough for them all to be within easy walking distance. The property manager was immediately responsive when we had a question about the electrical system. We did find that the internet was of limited availability, but we understand that this was to be addressed. You might wish to check and determine the current situation.

Burgundy Wine trip

  • 5 of 5

This is really a top class apartment. Spacious, very well equipped, clean and comfortable for 4 persons. Narrow car park on court yard, however, maximum of safety is guaranteed. Pity that there is no small garden or alternative place to sit outside and enjoy surroundings. Very good central located spot to visit the real heart of Burgundy's cotes de Nuits and Beaune. Also documentation impeccable. Simply great!

Owner's Response: We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Les Epenots. Clos de Pommard is a charming conversion of an old coaching inn so unfortunately outside space is at a premium. There is a 40/50m2 gravel and paved courtyard off the carpark with a bench and flowers in pots that is available for all at the Clos but much better to enjoy the large terrace at the cafe just around the corner, the chateau gardens over the road or the many opportunities to picnic in the vines that surround the village.

Pommard is a busy wine village situated close to the medieval town of Beaune in the heart of the beautiful Burgundy wine region. Conveniently situated close to the centre of one of France's most famous wine villages.

Visitors have a choice of activities as varied as the region's landscapes. With so much to see and do in this year-round destination, one stay is never enough! The so called 'Land of Art and Good Living', Burgundy offers you prestigious vineyards and wines, historical cities, famous sites (many World Heritage), golf and an interesting boating and walking network, all within a well preserved natural setting.
