9 Rue des Marcs d’Or, Dijon
Whether you are touring the region, or en route through Burgundy, this bed and breakfast 1km from the centre of Dijon is an ideal stopover. In the brand new wing of the house, there are four contemporary guest rooms: three double and one triple, all with en suite facilities, and one deluxe suite. The charming garden around the house is an oasis of calm after the bustle of this effervescent city, and here you can relax with a glass of Burgundy wine.
Spend the days exploring this university town, the history of the Dukes of Bourgogne, the stylish shops and one of the best markets in France. Dijon has a large selection of fine restaurants to choose from and an active nightlife too.
Ludovic Escalonna is your host at the Marcs d’Or and will provide breakfast in the dining room or on the terrace. He will suggest places to eat, things to do and see on the home patch, and arrange guided tours of the châteaux and vineyards if required.
The elegant house at 9 Rue des Marcs d’Or was built in 1850 with large French windows and tall ceilings. The up-to-the-minute guest rooms in the new wing are decorated in contemporary colours with a dash of antique furniture in keeping with the age and style of the house. Shown right, one of three double rooms, plus there is a room sleeping three persons, all with en suite facilities. The wing has a keypad entry system so you can come and go as you please and secure off-road parking at night.
The suite on the ground floor of the house has its own entrance with secure off road parking at night. Surrounded by mature trees and backing onto a park, you pass from the private leafy front terrace into the living room. There is a double bedroom and state of the art bathroom, with a vaulted ceiling, made in the ancient cellar of the house, plus internet access, TV, minibar and fridge.
