Vougeot: Hotel de Vougeot

18 Rue du Vieux Chateau, Phone: 3.80.620115

Reviewed by: Sheena from Canada, review #1284

When: June 2005

Excellent value in great location, overlooking the Chateau du Clos Vougeot. Rooms are basic but immaculately clean. A marvelous breakfast is offered.

We stopped here for one night in June on the way to Provence. Email communications with the owner, Alain Senterre, were answered promptly and we were able to pay by credit card. We made our booking early in the year, and on that day it had snowed in Vougeot. Alain emailed us a photo of the Chateau and vineyard covered in snow to show us how pretty it was. This personal touch proved to be typical of the manner in which business is conducted at Hotel de Vougeot.

The twelve rooms seem to be in a couple of different buildings surrounding a pretty courtyard. I think all rooms have a wonderful view of the Chateau du Clos Vougeot. Our two rooms were in the main building above the reception/breakfast area. There are four rooms in this building, two on each floor. The rooms are accessed via a very narrow, steep, noisy wooded staircase! Although the building is very old the furniture in the bedrooms is basic Ikea type furniture, stark but serviceable. A comfortable double bed, plenty of hanging and drawer space, a chair, desk, tv. The ensuite bathroom had clean white tiles, a walk in shower, lots of hot water, good towels and some amenities provided. Our large room was 70 for double occupancy.

Breakfast is served by Alain in a charming arched room behind the reception area. The breakfast was the usual bread, cheese, cold meats, eggs, jam, yoghurt, cereal, fruit, juice, tea and coffee. The difference here was that everything was absolutely top notch - we ate far too much because it was just so good! Alain serves tea and coffee and ensures that everyone has everything they could possibly want.

When we mentioned how much we had enjoyed the conserves Alain directed us to his supplier's farm where we bought conserves in beautiful fat jars, and copious amounts of Cassis. [Ferme Fruirouge e-mail fruirougewanadoo.fr]
