This morning we are leaving St Jean de Lossa. Waiting for a taxi to take us to train station to catch train to Paris. Today we have a nice day...that figures!

Really tired got to hotel at 11pm so straight to ...
... with lots of bright orange but the lone waitress managed a five course degustation for over 20 customers, with 3-4 choices in each course, all on her own. She was fantastic and had to converse in Dutch, German, English and of course French. The cheese course was served for a trolley, glass, 2 tiered and full of beautiful soft cheeses and local cheeses - no hard cheeses. Our meal was very nice but at €42 pr head seemed comparatively expensive when its the service we ...
Leaving Auxonne now to go to St Jean de Losne. Raining again. Just as we'll we had a good day yesterday! Decided to go on to Seurre. Pretty little place and the sun has come out at last! Off to St Jean de Losne ...our last port of call where we will drop off the ...
... big toe in. Between each pool was a different sauna experience. Each sauna was a different temperature and some were vapours zed, some hot rocks, some dry and some we didn't go into as those coming out looked like they and been over cooked. After the dry sauna there was an awesome cold water bucket dumping that came as a shock. We think there was also massage available and other treatments but there was no English and no one spoke any english so we did the ...
... hr over the speed limit so I thought I would be in for a massive fine like in Australia but online said it was 135 Euros. Still a pain but not the 200-400 Euro fine I thought it might be.
I haven't added any photos because I don't have access to my laptop. Thankfully, Philippe, the St-Remy apartment owner, has given the charger to his son who arrives in Paris tonight, so I should be able to pick it up tomorrow.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel de Luxe le Cep Beaune
Le Cep is true luxury! From the bellman who took our luggage up to the room to the reception staff who found/mapped wine tasting adventures for us in town - we felt like royalty. The room was huge (we even had a private balcony)with an enormous king-sized bed! Sure, it was pricey but we splurged and it was totally worth it! Not sure I would go back to Beaune (I found it a little on the "pretentious" side) but if I did, I would only stay at Le Cep!
The best place to stay in Beaune - if you can afford it
Hotel le Cep is without doubt THE place to stay in Beaune if you have the money to afford it.
Its position is ideal as a base for exploring the old part of Beaune.
Staff are extremely polite and helpful and there is no problem speaking English.
We spent three nights in this elegant and relaxing hotel.
When we arrived our cases were carried to our room and our car was parked for us.
Our room was on the ground floor, however the window was well above street level and we didn't feel overlooked.
The room itself was large, with a wooden beamed ceiling and chandelier style lighting, but it had air-conditioning and a modern bathroom. There were plenty of hangers, but possibly not really sufficient drawer space for us to completely upack.
The reception and other staff were friendly and efficient.
We would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Beaune
Elegant and Welcoming
We just spent a week at Le Cep in Beaune, in the Burgundy region of France. The hotel exceeded all expectations. Our room was spacious and well air-conditioned, two characteristics that can be rare in French hotels. Since the temperatures reached 100 degrees in an unexpected heatwave, that room became a haven. The room was beautifully and elegantly decorated. I felt as if I were in a private château. Staff were all warm, friendly, and helpful. I speak French but all staff spoke English. I'd love to return the to hotel and the beautiful town of Beaune.
I cannot believe this is the same hotel garnering praise in previous reviews. My experience was completely different from other reviewers'.
Beautiful hotel in the center of town, close to everything. Spent the weekend Friday to Sunday(May 27-29, 2005). We made our reservations through the website of Small Luxury Hotels of the World and upon arrival we were treated royaly. Our room was large with a huge king size bed (slept like a baby) and a balcony overlooking a private courtyard. The bathroom was quite large (especially by French standards). The staff was extremely helpful in telling us all about the things to do in town and directing us where everything was on a map. They arranged a balloon ride over the vineyards for us which was amazing. Their resturant is very very pricey. Perfect for a special occasion dinner. All in all the hotel is a 10+ and we would definitely stay there again.
As a family we've driven down to the Cote D'Azur or the Alps on many occasions and each time we've stopped at the Hotel Cep in Beaune as it's pretty much halfway between Calais and the South of France
Nicer than we could have imagined
My wife and I spent 2 charming days at La Cep over Christmas. From the moment we arrived until the time we had to leave for the train station, we were treated with great service, superb professionalism and a true level warmth.
From a fantastic roaring fire in the sitting area to warm, wonderful guest rooms and an ideal location for being within walled city. La Cep has it all. We would stay there again in a moment.
most wonderful place. We stayed at Le Cep in June of 2003 for 2 nights.
The staff are friendly and professional and they spent a lot of time helpinmg me change some of my reservations at other hotels and towns and they did it with a smile. We had a room with 2 beds in it accomedating 2 adults and one child. The room was large, beautifuly decorated and comfortable. The hotel building is a total charm, old building with a lot of history. The court yard takes you to a different time and place.
Total Charm at a Great Price
Le Cep is a magical little hotel of top quality. Excellent rooms and public areas. Thoughtful and personal staff. Charm, charm, charm. I would return in a heartbeat. May 2003
