La Tour de Bassy es un Priorato del siglo XII convertido en refugio silencioso. Situado en un pequeño pueblo en el sur de Borgoña, la propiedad fue antes el hogar de los monjes de Cluny.
Reglas de la casa
Myself and 11 friends (6 couples) rented out Michel's place for a long weekend and it was ideal. It's a relatively short drive from Macon, short enough for a taxi, so worked out well for us. The monastery is incredible - much larger inside than we were expecting (there's a stage!). Because of it's design, with few windows, it stayed very cool throughout the day in the main part which was good, although this did mean it was a little dark at times. Similarly for the rooms, some were very bright and airy, whilst others were a bit dark. This didn't matter at all for us though as we spent most of our time outside or in the main lounge area. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed (and more), plus there's a gas BBQ which we used every day. Michel was very helpful ahead of our arrival and showing us about, but otherwise left us to our own devices. His wife was also exceptionally kind giving some people a lift to a cave when it was pouring with rain. Unfortunately didn't use the pool much as it was pretty cold, but has a great view across the vineyards. All in all a great trip and would highly recommend!
Michel and Kelly's gorgeous home will make memories that will last a lifetime. The location is absolutely beautiful - in the heart of vast Chardonnay vineyards - and the home is a perfect combination of modern and rustic, immaculately clean but a real priory from the 12th century, which to these Americans is just a wonder. The kitchen is enormous and we used it daily. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. The pool is lovely after a warm day touring the major sights with our three children - Cluny, Tournus, Beaune and many others. The beds and bedding are very comfortable, and the property is filled with flowers, fruits and animals. The perfect Burgundy getaway. If you're an english speaker, this is the place for you, for Michel is fluent and Kelly is a native speaker. And if you like classic rock, Michel maintains an excellent collection in the "great room." ;-) Many thanks to these incredible hosts! A bientot!
This is truly a rare find - a gorgeous property in the midst of paradise. In addition, the spaces are so beautifully appointed with lots of surprises. Perfect for a reunion, a reception, a wine tasting spree/cultural splash with friends. Our hosts were so welcoming, gracious and fun. We made many happy memories, thanks to them. If you have the opportunity, stay here --- to become a golden link in the long chain of the past. It is a present.
