La Maison du Couvent
Beaune - Sleeps 4-6
Beaune is an intimate town. It is full of beautiful old buildings, chic shops, restaurants and of course the wineries. Three hundred metres for the centre you will find La Maison du Couvent, a 17thC building which has been converted into a very stylish holiday home by interior designer Caroline Gigandet. Here you have all the pluses of town life but you are on the edge of the countryside
and the famous vineyards
Maison du Couvent has a lot of atmosphere retaining its old ceilings and floors but the furnishings are eclectic and contemporary. Very comfortable beds, a good broadband connection, gadgets and equipment of good quality - these are the essentials now in a home from home holiday rental.
The house consists of an open plan living area with sofas, dining table overlooking the view of the town, and well equipped kitchen with hob, oven and microwave, fridge, washing machine and coffee maker. There is also a Bluetooth radio and TV. The double bedroom has an extra wide (180 cm) bed, there is a twin bedded room plus a futon in the living room if six people are staying. The super smart bathroom has a walk in shower and there is a separate WC. The private courtyard with a lawned garden beyond is a real bonus of a town holiday rental and the perfect place for relaxation, kitted out with BBQ and outdoor furniture. The house is not wheelchair accessible and there is a no pets policy.
