This is the logo of our luxurious holiday house in Puligny Montrachet, Burgundy – 10pm as we like to call it. The logo is taken from a fabulous painting “A Drink to Soutine” by the established British artist Chris Gollon who is renowned for painting life into everything and bringing everything to life.
Our house is close to Beaune and is to let to holiday makers or for professionals coming to sample the heavenly wines that Burgundy has to offer.
Nestled in the heart of Burgundy, in Puligny Montrachet – home of the most prestigious white wines in the world, this house and its accompanying “Little House” is for lovers of wine & wine making. Here you are in the centre of things, the statuesque vineyard tractors rolling by, trailers bursting with the vendange, the clinking of the bottle washer, the whirr of the cuverie coolers – and, if you are lucky, the whispering of the yeastie beasties as they work their magic on the fermenting must.
It takes 435 Lucy-length paces to reach the boulangerie (she is 5′ 4″), and our favourite Michelin starred restaurant in the locality is just a stroll through the vineyards. There is also a fine-wine bar & a fabulous bistro where you will eat with the locals – who probably produce the wine you are drinking!
Lovingly refurbished in 2012, to a high standard of comfort (and refreshed every year), it gives you an ideal base from which to explore Burgundy in all its glory. Puligny Montrachet is one of the most important stops on the Route des Grands Crus and is just 12 km from historic Beaune and its wonderful market.
Enjoy a luxurious experience, using our links within the community to turn your trip into an unforgettable, magical insight into the world of wine making and the treasures it produces.
From Spring to Autumn you can rent either the Main House (with three double bedrooms) or, if you are a large party, both of the houses together (for an additional two double bedrooms and living areas). We do not offer the Little House separately at these times so that clients of the Main House can have exclusive use of the garden and patio areas. In winter, when the gardens will not be in use, it is possible to rent the properties separately.

What’s Catalunya got to do with Burgundy?
Well, not a lot really, except it is another place that we love…
If you fancy a rest from wine tasting and would like a great seaside getaway, check out our holiday house on the Costa Brava – Maremar. Just click the picture…
Maremar is located in a real Catalan town rather than a resort, so the place is open all year round. The sea is marvelous, but it is not the only thing to visit on the Costa Brava.
You are pretty much in Dali Land, Barcelona is one and a half hours’ drive away and the magnificent city of Girona with it’s city walls and beautiful architecture is half an hour away.
Add to that, Roman, Iberiean and other ancient ruins and a gastronomy which is second to none, and there you have it!
If, on the other hand, you like mountains, cooler air, vast areas of peace and tranquility, flora, fauna and great rustic cuisine (and some seriously Haute Cuisine too) have a look at our (not finished at all) personal website which is intended to introduce people to some of the hidden gems of Catalunya.
It is a bit rough because we have been concentrating on the websites for our holiday properties, but it will give you some great ideas. By the way, we do not have a rental property in the mountains – how’s that for a hard sell…!

Should you decide to visit the Catalan Pyrenees, we would recommend a simply first class hotel with one of the best restaurants we have been to (and there have been a few!). Authentic is the word.

If you are a quiet, possibly retired, couple who would like to spend summer in London, in a real family house built in the reign of Queen Victoria, you might be interested in renting/house-sitting our London home.
It is in a leafy suburb in the Royal Borough of Greenwich which has bags of its own history (King Henry VIII spent his childhood at Eltham Palace close by). It is quiet, green and safe. The railway station for trains to London is a four minute walk away and the comfy train ride into the City (St Pauls, the Bank of England, Shakespeare’s London etc) or Charing Cross (for Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square, Parliament, the West End etc) is just 25 minutes.
It is a large, three storey property and our friends, a lovely couple who look after it for us, live in a self-contained flat at the top (although they access their flat through our house). Our friends will ensure that you are safe and sound as well as giving you any help you need, but will leave you as much to yourselves as you want.
You would have your own bedroom and exclusive use of the living room, kitchen, bathroom and conservatory as well as the patio and gardens.
