    "La Terre D'or was more than we expected - nestled on the slopes of the hills surrounding Beaune - the views and tranquility were excellent. Vincent and his family were fantastic hosts and the pool was a welcome relief in the hot weather."

    "We can not say enough about this wonderful B&B in Beaune. Vincent and his family have been hosting us since 2008, and every experience there has been fabulous! They are extremely welcoming and eager to share their knowledge of Burgundy. Set high on the hill over the vineyards, yet just a minute drive into Beaune, the location is ideal. This is our absolute favorite place to stay in France."

    "La Terre D'Or is an amazing place high on the hill overlooking Beaune! We could not ask for better hosts than Vincent and his family. He and his father Jean-Louis were an endless source of local knowledge and enthusiasm for this special part of the world. All of the rooms are immaculate and stunning in this wonderfully restored luxury B&B. This is a great place to stay while you explore the amazing surroundings in Burgundy!"

    "Our stay at La Terre D'or was arranged through a tour group and we were highly impressed. The location was superb. Situated on a hill with stunning views of Beaune and the vineyards below. The house was spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. Vincent, his parents and his colleague Pierre-Jean were wonderful hosts and made us feel welcome immediately. Breakfast was wonderful and included the most delicious croissants and raspberry jam. We enjoyed getting to know this wonderful, talented family of wine makers, jam makers, truffle farmers and artists. We loved the artwork displayed throughout the house and garden by Jurga, Vincent's wife. We were only there for four days, but Vincent and the wonderful, friendly people of Burgundy shared their best with us. We can't wait to come back and check the progress of Jean-Louis' truffle plantation!"

    "Excellent spot on a hill overlooking the town. Short 20 min walk into town past vineyards. Very peaceful and quiet. Vincent is a charming and helpful host. He has good recommendations of places to visit, activities, restaurants etc. and is genuinely happy to make all necessary booking and reservations. If you get a chance, hire a bike and ride the wine trail to Santenay."

    "We have visited Beaune every year for the last nine years with tour groups and we always stay at La Terre d'Or. It is situated in a very peaceful setting on the hill among the vineyards overlooking the town of Beaune which is the wine capital of Burgundy in the Cte d'Or department of Eastern France.It is a short drive to the city centre or a lovely 25 minute walk through the vineyards. Jean-Louis and Christine Martin and their son Vincent are wonderful hosts.They are very warm and friendly and they know a lot about hospitality.Christine lovingly maintains the amazing gardens and they are a testimony of many hours spent keeping them immaculate. Vincent is the frontman these days and he has a delightful personality full of warmth and sincerity. Both Jean-Louis and Vincent and more recently Pierre-Jean are available as guides if you need them to help you explore this beautiful part of the world.They are extremely knowledgable about the area and they know it well.They are able to help structure your whole stay whether it be which restaurant to choose for dinner,which wine tasting facility to visit or any other of the many attractions here.Vincent's wife Jurga has many of her amazing sculptures on display both indoors and out and they are a wonderful addition to the setting.The terracotta and bronze sculptures,mainly of children are very appealing and possess life-like qualities. The bed and breakfast itself is extremely spacious with beautifully decorated rooms, lovely bathrooms and very comfortable beds. In the warmer months breakfast is served on the terrace which has lovely views over the town. There is an amazing grotto under the house which you are able to visit as well as luxuriate in the spa down there which is a unique experience. We just love this place and so do the people that accompany us. If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay then look no further."

    "Set amongst the vineyards on a hill on the outskirts of Beaune. The view over the town is lovely. The place is easy to find, the welcome is immediate, friendly and efficient. Our room was spacious, well equipped, clean and comfortable."

    "La Terre D'or is the perfect place to stay while visiting Beaune. My husband and I loved the short walk down the hill and through the vineyards to visit the city center. We equally enjoyed the hike up the hill and back to the beautiful refuge of this welcoming B&B. Every detail of our visit was treated with care and fun laughter. Vincent and his family are amazing...make sure you visit the hot tub in the cave below the house. AWESOME (and Romantic)!"

    "We stayed here for 3 nights as a honeymoon break on our way through France. It was definitely worth stopping for. The grounds on accommodation are simply beautiful. Vincent was extremely knowledgable about the wine region so gave us some really good ideas of how to explore the region. We didn't want a guided tour as such and preferred to rent some bikes and do it ourselves. Vincent was more than helpful with this and really made our exploring fun and simple.The breakfast was always glorious with free flowing coffee! On our final day we had to leave very early in the morning so Vincent prepared a packed breakfast for our journey, which is much appreciated. The only down side was the fact that it is at the top of quite a steep hill so bear this in mind when going in to town to eat. We tried it on our bikes after a full restaurant dinner and wine. Impossible!!!"

    "Our experience began as we entered the gates of La Terre D'Or. The terraced grounds are beautiful with well tended flowers, trees, lawn, rock walls and a pool set on a hillside overlooking Beaune and vineyards as far as the eye can see. Truly artful and lovely sculptures of people are sprinkled around the grounds. Our room was spacious with a large bath and separate shower and was obviously designed and furnished for charm, comfort and function. We loved it!The owners, a local family, are warm, welcoming, very helpful, and multi-lingual. The French breakfasts were delicious. That alone would have made this a great place. But we had arranged for two days of optional tours and wine tastings offered by the owners. Again, these were fabulous. On our first day, we literally drove through the vineyards while getting a history of the area and an in depth understanding of Burgundian wine classifications.The harvest had just begun and the pickers were in the fields. Jean Louis, the family father, took us on his personalized tour of the Cote de Nuits and knowing most everybody in the area, he brought it all to life. We visited three winemakers, had lunch at a place not on anyone's list, and visited an ancient "cellar" built by monks who built the wine industry many hundreds of years ago. I now know what is meant when people speak of the "terroir" of wine.Jean Louis is a relaxed, charming, knowledgeable and funny fellow. I enjoyed him immensely. The next day our tour was led by his son Vincent, who manages the place. A chip off the old block but slightly more mellow, he took us all over the countryside of the Cote de Beaune visiting three more winemakers, taking lunch in a local village restaurant that had the best beef bourguignon I had while in France.We also visited a local village chocolatiere, and explored a 14th century castle that is currently for sale. Vincent is just as knowledgeable and entertaining as his father and was an excellent host and guide. In both cases we got to know these two men and their love for the area and wine making. The tours are conducted in small groups which help you to get to know them better."

    "La Terre d'Or fit the needs of the four of us (2 couples) during our recent trip to Burgundy. The property is a short distance form Beaune, on a hillside overlooking the city. We rented one of the 2 houses available, which gave us the flexibility to eat in, hand wash laundry, and generally relax in an undisturbed fashion. The house was clean and well equipped. The staff was located in a house just up and across the road - about a 5 minute walk.Vincent, the proprietor, could not have been more helpful or accommodating. His recommendations on places to eat and visit were spot on. We engaged him on a tour of the Cote de Beaune area, which he knew like the back of his hand. We traveled back roads and out of the way places and he constantly related them to his own personal experiences in the area. It was fun, entertaining, and highly informative."

    "La Terre d'Or is a wonderful vacation experience. My group stayed 5 days in the gorgeous Les Pines guest cottage, and enjoyed every second of our time there. (there were 4 of us and we all fit comfortably in this spacious cottage). We were treated like honored guests from the moment we stepped off the train in Beaune and Vincent picked us up! We enjoyed 4 days of guided visits with Vincent and Jean Louis (two very kind and entertaining gentlemen).They did everything in their power to taylor the visits to our interests. In our case, we were treated to the wonderful world of Burgundy wine, and famous Gaul chieftains. We all learned a lot, and experienced countless new things... like truffle ice cream, and Grand Cru wine (yum!) The staff is very friendly and helpful. Vincent, Jean Louis, and Elodie were always willing to answer our questions and suggest activities or dining experiences.The facilities at La Terre D'or are exceptional with a beautiful garden, relaxing swimming pool, and enchanting grotto. You have a wonderful view of Beaune and the surrounding vineyards. It is a little walk into the city (that is the price you pay for the views). I quite enjoyed walking through the vineyards to and from Beaune. I felt like I was walking into a medieval fairy tale. La Terre D'or est une chambre d'htes exceptionnelle. Il faut bien profiter de ce bijou bourguignon!I love to travel in France, and I usually try to go to a different region every time to have a different experience. That said, I will definitely break my own rule by returning to Beaune so that I can have the Terre D'or experience again. They all speak English very well, but once they found out I could speak French they were very willing to indulge and encourage me. My mom and Friends even learned some French too!"

    "My father and I had the absolute pleasure of staying at La Terre D'or on 2nd June for 3 nights. I would not hesitate to recommend it. We picked the Lilas cottage and were very happy with our choice. The cottage is located just a stones throw from the main house but gives a little privacy, surrounded by a beautifully maintained garden.As other reviewers have already commented upon, the cottage looks far nicer in real life than it appears in the photos. I am getting married in September, so the purpose of our visit was to select some wine for my wedding. We therefore chose to book the 2 day wine tour at La Terre Dor. We were not disappointed.If you select a wine package you will be allocated either Vincent or his father as your personal guide (no coaches or large groups). Either one of them will then drive your car for you and take you on a bespoke wine tour of the region. My father and I had the pleasure of Vincents company and guidance for two days.He was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed our time spent driving from one wine producer to the next. In the evening Vincent recommended and booked a restaurant on our behalf for dinner, again tailoring his booking to our requirements. We ate handsomely every night.I would urge anyone thinking of staying here to undertake their own research before accepting the comments made by the New York Bulldog. Firstly, he is right when he says that this is not a hotel but it does not pretend to be. It is clear on the website and contained within the email booking confirmation that this is a B&B. Secondly, of course it is a business. Most B&Bs are.But at no time did my father or I feel that the owners need to make a profit was reflected with bad or overcharged service. Thirdly, the breakfast is typically French. We were lucky enough to enjoy cherrys picked from Vincents garden that very morning, lovely croissants, home made jam, local cheese and ham. Ok it is not waffles, eggs and bacon and the choice is limited, but we are in France.What is more, the stunning views across Beaune as you enjoy a coffee on the terrace are surely worth a few Euros in themselves. Finally, whilst La Terre Dor is not located in the heart of Beaune, it is a short drive into town and you benefit from being nestled in the heart of the vineyards. In short, a beautiful B&B, with great hosts in a wonderful location. Thank you. "

    "I recently stayed for two nights at La Terre D'or with two college girlfriends during a trip that can only be described as perfection. Vincent, the son of the villa owners, picked us up at the train station and was our driver and tour guide for our two day stay. He was absolutely delightful and took us to amazing vineyards and gave us a fabulous wine education and history lesson on the region.We checked in mid-morning at the villa and were greeted with coffee before taking off to taste wine. When we got back in the afternoon, our lovely guest cottage was ready and it was beyond beautiful (as were all of the grounds, the living/breakfast area). We comfortably slept 3 in the cottage with a fabulous bathroom and small kitchen.When we came back tired after our first day out, Vincent ordered dinner for us from a neighbor and we sat on the terrace and feasted on beef bourguignon, potatoes gratin and fresh green beans. It was a perfect ending to a perfect day. On day two we toured more vineyards and villages (and Vincent brought along fresh cherries from his own tree) and then discovered the grotto.You cannot pass up the opportunity to soak in a hot tub in a cave that they dug out by hand over the course of 2.5 years! It is a magical space and the perfect spot for sipping on some Cremant while taking a soak. We kept pinching ourselves - it was just too amazing.Breakfast both days included buttery croissants, cheese, jam, coffee and juice. Vincent's family and the staff were all charming and so welcoming. The gardens (all tended by the wife/owner) are gorgeous, and againthe Grotto cannot be missed. Go, stay, purchase a lot of wine, take a soak, learn about this lovely regionyou will not be disappointed. I cannot wait to go back."

    "I don't even know how to put this place into words except to say it is on of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed in. The bed and breakfast itself is nestled in the hills overlooking beautiful vineyards. It is beautifully decorated and filled with sculptures done by Vincent's wife.Vincent's family build this house and he runs the operations there now. He is absolutely charming and a perfect host. He provided us with itineraries every morning on what we should visit. We saw all these amazing small towns and sampled spectacular wines.I highly recommend taking breakfast in the terrace overlooking the hills and taking a dip in the hot tub in the cave underneath the house. Staying at Vincent's was by far the best part of our honeymoon and we are thinking of returning for an anniversary. This place is not to be missed."
