You’ll see her sculptures scattered throughout the house and garden.

The vividly lit rooms are spacious and tastefully designed. Each room has en-suite shower and / or bath, air conditioning, robes, soap, and Wi-Fi. On the ground floor, there is a large seating area with a fireplace and a piano for evening gatherings. Underneath the house, there is an amazing natural grotto that was discovered by the family. You can enjoy sipping wine while relaxing in the jacuzzi or explore the cave. The pool is nestled in the colorful garden, which is cultivated organically with flowers and fruit trees. The main terrace is a nice place to start your day, gazing the vineyards while having breakfast, or watching the twinkling lights of Beaune at night.
