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®.

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.

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.
