The Abbaye de la Bussière: Hotel Restaurant between Beaune and Dijon

On Friday 7th July, the Tour de France is coming to us here in Burgundy.  It'll be stage 7 between Troyes and Nuits Saint Georges, just half an hour from the Abbaye.

So while waiting for them to arrive towards the end of the afternoon, why not come and have a leisurely lunch on the terrace and enjoy the Abbaye's park.

A luxury hotel in Burgundy

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®.

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.
