Because we are hardly objective, here is a a lovely email and photo (of our clematis in France!) received over the weekend from our most recent guests at La Maison des Chaumes – Thank you Peter and Carole. A bientôt on espère!
Bonsoir, Laura et Franck,
Needless to say – we’ve so enjoyed la Bourgogne – as shared earlier – very new to us and really a treasure, just as Laura has noted in much of her writing. As much as our trip really was planned to center around the joyous occasion of a marriage – I said to Carol today that regardless of the absolutely surreal experience we’ve had as guests at the wedding – attending the civil ceremony, being with the extended family for many days prior to the wedding – we would have very much enjoyed being here on ANY occasion!
Your home has been such a solid nest for us – as, I’m sure it has been for others, but – as you may have noted – we’re pretty particular with our vacation rentals here in France and yours was undoubtedly among the best we’ve encountered. Really, Laura and Franck you must be commended for you extreme attention to the details we Americans and Canadians appreciate in a vacation rental. But, really – this is a HOME and we very much appreciate that aspect – it is beyond what one would hope for – and has all the amenities that we expect in our own homes!
Thank you – thank you!
The roses are just getting to bloom at the end of the front terrace – and the rosemary is green and bright along the walk way. The peonies in the back garden – is that your neighbor’s????- should bloom next week – as is their lilac – white and purple.
As shared, the shower is the best on the continent!!! The kitchen is superb – enjoy the oven and stove immensely! The washer and dryer also deserve commendation as the best in France! Not typical in our experience! We could actually dry clothes without burning them – ha!
So enjoyed the wine here – particularly, Chateau Meursault, Savigny les Beaune, Pommard and so many others – really enjoyed the Musee de Vin –
We’ll keep in touch and hope to hear from you soon – we DO hope to return here!
Regards – Peter
