Amazing & unforgettable
My wife and I stayed at La Terre d'Or from September 19th to the 23rd, 2019. From the moment Fabrizio picked us up at the train station, we knew we were in capable hands. Our stay was booked through a third-party tour company and included a number of tours with our guide Fabrizio, which are also available to those booking directly through La Terre d'Or. I had seen the photographs of this elevated Bed and Breakfast on the website, and can confidently say that photos do not do it justice ; the beautiful grounds, the comfortable and pristine rooms, and the breathtaking view of nearby Beaune and the expanses of vineyards climbing the slopes toward us was simply sublime. We stayed in Les Orchidées room, which was bright, clean, and ever so spacious after our cramped hotel room in Paris. Our room included a small terrace outside our door where my wife and I loved to wind down the day with a bottle of wine. The cave below the house is stocked with local Burgundy wine offerings and bottles can be purchased directly from La Terre d'Or at very reasonable prices. Our days were spent with Fabrizio, touring local wineries, talking with winemakers, and sampling some of the best wine produced in the world. We also had opportunity to tour local treasures like the Beaune market, l'Hospice de Beaune, and the Chateau du Clos de Vougeot. More than anything, La Terre d'Or offers some of the warmest hospitality we've ever experienced in our travels. The time we spent talking and laughing with Fabrizio, Vincent, and family patriarch, Jean-Louis will stay with us forever. Fabrizio was so kind to make our wedding anniversary that much more special by preparing homemade treats and a home-cooked dinner for us. Jean-Louis hosted us at “Le Clos”, his nearby property with vineyards, gardens, and a soon to be fruitful truffle plantation. Before showing us around, he opened a bottle of wine produced from the vineyard we were about to explore. One evening, while seated on our terrace, Vincent came to visit us with a plate of local cheeses and cured meats. We supped, snacked, and laughed, talking about life as the sun went down on another perfect day. We were so sad to leave our new friends at the end of our time at this special place, but our memories will sustain us, until circumstances bring about our return.
