Why charlotte buffet chose Volnay
The Buffet family, winemakers in the village of Volnay from generation to generation since the end of the 18th century, proudly continues to pass on their savoir-faire for wine-making. This house, which I have recently converted into a rental home, has been part of the wine-making domaine (www.bourgogne-buffet.com) since its creation and used to be home to the vineyard field workers. Originally from Paris, Burgundy has been my home ever since marrying a Burgundian. Over the years I have learned to understand and appreciate the delicate and fine wines of the region, the incredible "terroir", and the rich history of Beaune and the Dukes of Burgundy.

great birthday in Burgundy
Overall a wonderful visit to Burgundy to celebrate my birthday. House is very comfortable and in the quiet village of Volnay just outside of Beaune. Easy to communicate and check-in & also had a lovely cellar visit/tasting from the family's Domaine.
Our stay in Volnay was wonderful!
The house was very comfortable. We enjoyed the garden and surroundings. There were excellent restaurants in the area and we loved the wine tour. We would go back again and would like to stay longer.
A fabulous place, central to explore this beautiful part of the world
Quiet and calm awaits your return from a day of trying to learn about this region. An easy walk into either Pommard or Mersault. Would love to return
C'était un vrai plaisir de vous accueillir, un petit coin d'Australie dans notre Bourgogne. Bon vent et avec grand plaisir pour une autre visite !!
Home was very comfortable and beautiful. Appliances and wifi all worked very well (though carrying wet laundry down outside stairs to dryer was a challenge). Kitchen, very well equipped, made meal preparation a pleasure. Off street parking at the property is very difficult, but there is plenty of alternative parking available.
Charlotte and her husband are very kind, generous and helpful. His family has owned/maintained the same vineyards since the 1600's, and we savored the Aligote with which they greeted us.
I highly recommend this rental in the heart of Burgundy.
Wonderful stay in picturesque Burgundy wine village
My wife and I stayed at La Maison de Charlotte for five days in September. The property is in the centre of the beautiful village. It is well equipped and well appointed and has a lovely garden - as the weather was unseasonably hot, we spent most of our time outside. Charlotte was very responsive and helpful both before and during our stay - she kindly arranged a trip to the family's wonderful cellars accompanied, of course, by a wine tasting (hosted by Charlotte's charming mother law). Although there are no shops in the village, there is a good bakery and other shops in nearby Pommard and Meursault. We love walking through the vineyards to Pommard - also the location of one of our favourite restaurants, Aupres du Clocher. For those who love good food and wine, accompanied by wonderful walks, it is difficult to think of a more ideal location. We will certainly be back soon!
A lovely base from which to explore the Bourgogne.
We loved the cottage. It is very well-equipped and spacious. Charlotte is an excellent host and Madame Buffet and Marc-Olivier gave us a super tour of the caves. Volnay is a nice little village, if a little limited in restaurants and shops.
Beaune, direction Pommard then Volnay. Place de l'Eglise, directly behind the church. Look for Domaine François Buffet.
Le Cellier Volnaysien and l'Auberge des Vignes, two restaurants in Volnay.
The Hospices de Beaune: 5km.
