Lovely place in a wonderful village. Very peaceful. Nice little kitchen. Beautiful views across fields and vineyard. Only issue was the weather turned cold before arrival and the place is not really heated well. Has underfloor heating which works ok but doesn't really heat the place like a heater would. Not what I would call cosy. If you feel the cold there's not much alternative than getting into bed to stay warm. All in all pretty good though.

Response from Anna:
It was unfortunate for this guest that Burgundy was hit by an unseasonal cold snap early September. Underfloor heating does need a couple of days to get started and house is very well insulated so is normally very comfortable, during the colder months in Burgundy. .

Anna's place is beautiful and the small hamlet of Mont Saint John was very special. Really well located for Beaune and Dijon day trips with wonderful walks, a great restaurant and a fantastic castle all on your doorstep! There was some noise from upstairs as there were guests staying - they were quiet but the insulation is not so good so we slept with ear plugs. The bed is huge as so comfortable. The kitchen is really well equipped with plenty of storage and all the utensils you need. The views are incredible and we had a very happy, peaceful stay. Communication with Anna was easy and she even helped us a plan a wonderful walk, one of our highlights!

This was a great stay. Just as described, it is in a most beautiful spot and Anna has refurbished the house and garden tastefully, simply and creatively. The village is a joy with a visit to the castle, and the restaurant both well worth it. It is a long way from good shops, but the peace and tranquillity and the wealth of lovely places to visit within an hours drive meant that didn't worry us. Anna's communication was helpful and apposite. She is an excellent host. We will be back.
