 Grand de demain Gault & Millau

On Monday evening at the official launch in Paris of the 2017 Gault et Millau guide, Guillaume was presented with the prestigious award "Grand de demain", (great chef of tomorrow).  He was only one of 6 chefs in France to receive this accolade and the only one in Burgundy.  This distinction follows hot on the heels of another award for Guillaume who, at only 35 years old, became Meilleur Ouvrier de France in 2015.  Watch this space...  
Congratulations Guillaume!

   Congratulations Jean-Baptiste!


On the 3rd November at Dijon's Gastronomic Fair, Jean-Baptiste Chollet, a chef at the Abbaye, won the prestigious Bernard Lavau trophy for the "Concours des Jeunes Espoirs", (young hopefuls competition).  50 participants were initially selected and then 5 finalists. Jean-Baptiste was elected the winner by the "Amicale des Cuisiniers de la Côte d'Or" jury.

The challenge lasted for 3 hours 40 minutes, in which time he prepared oysters, (raw, marinated, tempura), free range guinea fowl with stuffed, braised cabbage, celery and squash spaghetti.

A luxury hotel in Burgundy

Discover a unique location in the heart of Burgundy. A Relais & Châteaux establishment, the Abbaye de la Bussière opens for you the doors of an authentic 12th century Cistercian abbey, nestling in an immense landscaped park and gardens. It is a veritable haven of peace and serenity, ideal for breathing new life.

A stone’s throw from Dijon and Beaune, our luxury hotel offers you rooms full of charm with unique decor. They offer you the greatest comfort with a relaxing view over the ornamental lake and the park, as well as large bathrooms each fitted with a Jacuzzi®. From Standard category to Suites, each room is decorated in classical style with antique furniture and luxurious fabrics, carefully chosen to create an elegant, warm and welcoming atmosphere.

During your stay at the Abbaye de la Bussière, take full advantage of a location allowing you to discover the Côte d’Or. With this in mind, do not miss a visit to some of the most important Cistercian abbeys in the region, like the Abbey of Cîteaux. Dive deep into History and prolong the experience already begun in our own establishment, rich in its past of more than 10 centuries.

Go off also on the discovery of the Côte de Nuits and its famous wines. Visit Beaune and Dijon as well as the surrounding winemaking domains, as in Nuits-Saint-Georges. Motor racing enthusiasts can even rendez-vous at the Dijon-Prenois circuit, located 20 minutes from the Abbaye de la Bussière.

Bistrot des Moines

The Bistrot des Moines welcomes you in the former refectory of the Abbaye.

In an atmosphere blending relaxation and the originality of the place, taste wholesome food, revisiting the classics of Burgundian cuisine. Here, monastic spirituality has given way to the pleasures of the palate and conviviality, even if the decor subtly recalls the original purpose of this place steeped in history.


A 17 acre park

Set amongst trees and flowers, our 17 acre park lends itself to a leisurely stroll.

Wander along the shores of the ornamental lake, enjoy the presence of the ponies on the lush green lawns, discover the different features of the Abbaye, like the water-mill or the dovecote: take advantage of this bucolic setting that exudes calm and enchantment.

To continue these pleasant moments of relaxation, three comfortable lounges are available to you at the Abbaye, whether for an aperitif, a moment for discussion, reading or games.
