If you my to step out of your box...this is a great place to do just that! From the moment you read the front door- yes, it looks like a window- to the fairytale stairs that fringe you to your room, this hotel had the charm of a 13th century Abbey with the luxuries of modern day.

Not sure if they are happy to see us go or if they really like us. I’m convinced it was the latter. The guests were exchanging emails and photos with suggestions of a French reunion.
... cheeses, oh, the cheeses! Because we're leaving tomorrow and have a stretch of hotel living before us we weren't able to buy any foodstuffs, so we had to content ourselves with getting a whetted appetite for lunch at the Brasserie Carnot, the above mentioned purveyor of local Burgundian dishes!
The brasserie is on a corner of the bustling Place Carnot and ...
