La maison

The two buildings that make up La Maison de l’Oiselier were part of the accommodation of the Sisters of Charity from the 17th century until recently. Newly renovated, under Caroline’s attentive guidance as an artist and interior decorator, the house has been equipped with modern comforts while preserving its authentic charm.

The old interior courtyard, which used to be the scene of courtship between small birds – ‘Oiselier’ meaning bird breeder – has been enclosed with a large glass roof. The kitchen has been relocated to beneath this transparent dome. An imposing staircase, with finely-sculpted wooden balustrades, leads majestically to the two floors.
Due to the layout of the property, the setting is calm and tranquil. Only the soft peal of the bells of the Chapelle de la Charité punctures the ambient silence.

Warm welcome and beds were extra comfy

I would highly recommend this location and property

A washer and drier often missing in European travel were a welcome sight

House is great for friends getting together, spacious and convenient

The area of Beaune is well located for day trips out into the countryside

The house has everything we need for a pleasant stay and is superbly decorated. Each room has its own space and you just feel like home if not better.

Four bedrooms with four separate bathrooms gave everyone space and privacy

Caroline is amazing! What a fantastic property. Outstanding location!

Lovely house in excellent location, host was caring and helpful. thoroughly recommended for large groups! Great reception & lovely place in perfect location

LIVING AREA

The spacious living room, is a comfort zone, furnished with comfortable sofas and leather armchairs that you can snuggle into as you partake in a convivial aperitif.
The small television room reaches out to those fans who couldn’t miss a football match, while not infringing on everyone else.
The rooftop terrace is not overlooked and is an ideal place to end the evening, ensconced in a garden seat, conversing beneath the stars, or perhaps to play a card game in the adjoining living space (which is equipped with a spare bed).
The wine-tasting cellar, recently fitted out in the old vaulted cellar, is typical of Burgundy with its exposed stone, old barrels and large table. If you would like to perfect your introduction to becoming an ‘Epicurean expert’, how better than with a private wine-tasting class right here?

FOR PEOPLE WHO ENJOY LIFE

The dining room, where a long oak table welcomes good-humoured and hungry diners, is also there to receive delectable dishes created by your home chef. Prepare your stay in advance, and order the menu of your choice, or perhaps a savoury brunch.

The kitchen, beneath the glass roof, contains all the necessary equipment to prepare a delicious meal.
And why not take an enjoyable cookery lesson to learn the secret of the delicious gougères (choux pastry dish) or boeuf bourguignon? Or what would you say to spending a day with your own chef: go shopping in the market, select your ingredients from colourful stalls, then return to the house to cook up wonderful dishes, following a picnic with local specialities on the terrace?

PRIVACY FOR EVERYONE AT NIGHT

Created as mini apartments to ensure privacy for everyone, all rooms have a private en-suite Burgundy-stone bathroom, separate toilets, and a wardrobe or a dressing room. Fitted out with hotel-quality bedlinen, a refreshing and revitalising night’s sleep awaits. If you wish to take your relaxation to the next level, you can reserve a massage.
Situated on both sides of the landing leading from the staircase, the four bedrooms are completely independent, each with its own particular personality.
The Linotte (linnet) bedroom, on the ground floor, with its twin beds, is bathed in soft amber tones. On the first floor, the Bouvreuil (bullfinch) bedroom, with its twin beds and playful blue-grey tones, and the Chardonneret (goldfinch) bedroom, with its large queen-size bed, and almost extravagant chandelier wall lights and sepia Toile de Jouy drapes. On the second floor, the Pinson (chaffinch) bedroom, equipped with a queen-size double bed, declares a sense of cheerfulness in tones of madder red.
