Golden Book Satisfied guests : our best reward.

A warm thank you to all our visitors from the world who took the time to write us a mail, or leave a word in our golden books. This trace of their stay with us in Burgundy will stay in our memories and their satisfaction is warming up our hearts.
Sometimes it was not easy or possible for me to understand the words left by hand writing in our golden books and I have not been able to copy words left in other languages than English or French. So I would like to tell the authors to excuse me for this.

Enjoy reading.

Villa Saunières

We had a fantastic week here at Villa Saunières! We surprised our dad for his 60th birthday and created some amazing family memories. During our stay we had so much fun playing pétanque & enjoying the facilities and grounds. We rode the bikes into Verdun most days for croissants and pains au chocolat fresh from the patisserie. We really enjoyed exploring the area:
- Incredible wine tasting experience with Christophe at Château de Simard.
- Arranging the Chef and server to come to the villa for our formal dinner for Dads birthday night.
- Cycling tour with Guillaume from Burgundy bike tours through the vineyards.
What a fantastic week, merci beaucoup !

Château de Lans

Having already experienced a fantastically successful holiday in Château de Mercurey in 2011, I was unsure whether to repeat it at Château de Lans. Grandchildren all wanted to come, aged 8 to 22, plus my 3 children & spouses! Not once anyone said "I'm bored" or even worse disappearing behind an electronic device! They have tried everything from the gym, bikes & games. They have played water polo and various games they devised from the pool. We have eaten and drunk our way through the week, hoping our activities have made up for any excess. Thomas's gastronomic menu was a wonderful last evening. A marvellous week for us all.

A wonderful week with friends in this beautiful setting. Lovely day trips to nearby villages & towns, then "home" to enjoy the serenity. Topped off with the platinum wine tasting at Christophe's home - superb thank you. This trip has made life long memories.

Cher Christophe. C'était de nouveau une grande fête de séjourner avec toute la famille (17 personnes dont 8 enfants) dans l'une de vos magnifiques demeures. La dernière fois au château de Lans, et cette fois ci à Mercurey. Vu le temps magnifique nous avons passé beaucoup de temps au bord de la piscine et tous les soirs nous y avons dîné. Mais nous avons pu profiter également de toutes les autres possibilités: la salle de gym, le sauna, le hammam, le ping-pong, le jeu de boules... Nous en garderons tous un merveilleux souvenir et qui sait reviendrons nous la prochaine fois au château de Montsymond. Au nom de toute la famille, un grand merci !

We had our first family vacation in 14 years at Château de Lans. This was an amazing location to do this. The rooms & bathrooms, the decor, the large kitchen and dining-room...and of course the grounds.
We all enjoyed the pool, the trampoline and even apples from the garden. We loved exploring wine country. Christophe's wine tasting was "Amazing". The Chef at the Château was a wonderful night for the entire group. In a word, it was a magical week. We hope to come back & enjoy one of the other properties in the future.

13 of us had a lovely time in the Chateau Mercurey. 3 special occasions were celebrated: Christmas, a wedding anniversary and New Year's Eve. This was once in a life time experience and we relished it. The surrounding villages and towns were delightful, and the centuries of history mind blowing. We admire the fact that the chateau has been rescued and brought back to life. Well done !

A real sense of occasion ! Chef Raphael and his wife provided a real treat, the food delicious and the service superb. We really did have a wonderful time in such a special place. Thank you !

Villa Saunières

We had a fabulous time at Villa Saunières. It has all the amenities and comfort that one would need for a great stay. We were 8 adults and 6 kids ages 18 months to 16 years and there was something for all of us to do! The sauna, the steam-room, heated pool, the comfortable beds, bikes were all appreciated a lot! We enjoyed the hot air balloon ride floating through the early morning mist over the Doubs river. The wine tour was wonderful and the vineyards look beautiful with Fall colors. We especially enjoyed the massage services. Thank you so much for thinking of everything and making our friends 40th birthday celebration so awesome!

We were a party of 12 adults and have all appreciated this spacious and comfortable villa with all its amenities. We have enjoyed eating outside on the terrace during the sunny weather. The pool has been particularly popular. It has been a very relaxing week with some excellent food and wine.
