“The setting is idyllic, at the edge of woods with views over vineyards and the ancient ramparts of Beaune. The nine large, bright, soothingly decorated bedrooms are split between the main house and a cottage, so even when the hotel's full, it doesn't feel it. Vincent, Jean-Louis and Christine Martin are the friendly owners, a fund of local knowledge who will organize anything from wine-tasting to ballooning.”

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
La Terre d’Or is located in the very centre of Burgundy, next to the famous vineyards, with great views over Beaune old town. We love to welcome our guests and share our passion for Burgundy: not only the great wines, but also the local food, the charming winemaker villages, the medieval castles and abbeys… We usually sit and speak about the guest’s interests and suggest an itinerary with stops at some of our best places. We also very much enjoy offering special guided tours of the vineyards and winemakers, with cellar visits and wine tastings.
Here at La Terre d’Or, you can relax in the gardens, on the terrace or by the pool. We also have a Jacuzzi in a special natural grotto near the house, with stalagtites and stalagmites!
What is there to do in the area?
Wine tastings of course, but also truffle, mustard, cheese, chocolate, jam tastings with the local producers.
