Looking for a place to stay in Burgundy (France)? フランスの田舎に泊まりたい?

Bonjour a tous! Cette entree ne sera malheureusement pas en Francais. A bientot pour l'entree suivante :)

Hello everyone!
For once an entry with no (or little) french in it! Quite a few friends ask me regularly where they should stay when visiting France. I would like to recommend in this entry an original way to visit France (and Burgundy): renting an appartment in a village rich with traditions.


When my friend first told me a few years back that he was going back to France to live in Pommard -burgundy-, I was absolutely surprised. "Pommard, what a great idea" I thought. When he announced me a few years later that he would be moving on to another country (for career reason), I wondered what would happen to his flat.

Well, there it is, up for rental for the traveler who wants to get away from the Buzz of the city and experience French traditions in our Burgundy countryside.

ブルゴーニュ(Bourgogne)はパリとコートダジュール(Cote d'Azur)の間にあります。スイスから2時間ぐらい。まぁ、ワインはおいしくって、田舎を満喫できるところです。 

Burgundy is a Region ideally located between Paris and the Riviera (South); 2-3 hours away from Switzerland, it is a great place to relax, enjoy Nature and great wines! Click on the map to expand.

Pommard is one of these villages at the heart of Burgundy. It gained in popularity thanks to its world class quality wine.
The trouble for many a tourist is to decide where to stop in a country that they don't know, with inhabitants not always very good at English.

The advantage of this residence is that several tenants are foreigners, and english is not an issue. Moreover, you can contact the owner directly and start establishing a Trust relationship before you even started to travel. I wish I could do that more often here in Singapore ;)


The appartment itself is a traditional appartment: wooden beams and creaking joins, but in excellent and clean condition. Renting the appartment for a week might be a little pricy for one single individual, but as a Family, it is definitely a steal! I'd definitely recommend it to all travelers who want to experience the quieter side of France, with its countryside culture and traditions.

僕の友達の所、今年から宿泊できるようになりました。ほら、写真を見てください。素敵でしょう!そこの田舎に一週間ぐらい泊まりたくない? それとオーナーは英語がペラペラ。

If you want to know more about the property, the rates and get in touch with the owner, here is the website:



Below a few pictures to let you salivate..  

Enjoy your holidays in France!
