Beaune is the jewel in Burgundy’s crown, and the Porte St Nicolas apartment is no less precious. It has been carefully renovated and furnished to accommodate 4 adults in comfort.
With high exposed beam ceilings, original parquet floors, and elegantly dressed floor-to-ceiling windows, this second floor apartment offers a delightful, high standard living environment.
At Porte St Nicolas, everything you need for a restful, but fascinating holiday is a short walk away. A nearby boulangerie for breakfast baguettes and croissants, a neighbourhood café where you can linger over a local glass of wine.
Beaune has an outstanding street market, (extensive Saturday mornings, smaller on Wednesdays) offering every conceivable fresh produce, cheeses, meats, various other products of the region, clothing, leatherwear, and kitchen items. For an evening meal try one of over 50 excellent restaurants – no drinking and driving required here!
Be sure not to miss the Hospice de Beaune, built in 1443 and in operation for five centuries.
The best apartment and experience ever !! Great location , super hosts ( always on top of what you might need ). Plenty of nice details and tips to make your stay unforgettable!! I will try to come back as soon as possible. If you are a foodie and love wines , come and taste the best in the world

Cozy apartment in a great location

Four of us stayed in this lovely apartment for four nights. It is clean and comfortable with a well-stocked kitchen. It's also in a great location within walking distance of many restaurants and sites. It is on a corner of a busy street, so with the windows open the street noise was noticeable, especially on the weekend, but not a major concern. Su was also very responsive to any questions we had. We would definitely stay there again.

Luxury apartment inside the ramparts of Beaune
We have stayed in this apartment several times over many years and love it. It’s location within the ramparts of the beautiful village of Beaune could not be better in which to explore the wonderful Cote d’Or. This luxury apartment has two ample bedrooms, each with its own ensuite as well as large and spacious kitchen, dining and living areas. It is beautifully decorated in keeping with with its 14C origins and very comfortable to live in for weeks or months as we often do. The high ceilings are of ancient oak, as are the floor boards. There is even an open fireplace. You really feel immersed in medieval France staying here. The kitchen excels in equipment and design that encourages one to shop in the famous Beaune market and cook up a storm. Additionally there is a free and safe parking area across the road, as well restaurants, a patisserie and a supermarket all within minutes on foot. There is no lift to this second floor apartment but the staircase is wide and easy to climb.

Ever since we checked out of the Porte Saint Nicolas apartment, I’ve been wanting to write and tell you how much we enjoyed our stay.
The apartment was perfect for us. We made good use of all of it. It’s comfortable and the kitchen and bathrooms are updated very nicely, yet it retains its period charm with original beams, floors, doors, and hardware. I really loved it. A friend staying with us is an accomplished chef who happily made us several gourmet dinners in the well-furnished kitchen.
You get kudos from us all around. We come to Beaune once or twice a year for five to ten days at a time, and we’d love to stay at Porte Saint Nicolas again when we return.
It was a pleasure to stay there.

We did want to thank you, your team & the owners for a wonderful stay at Porte Saint Nicolas (8-12 September). We have been back home for a week now after our great 5 week holiday in France.
The few days in Beaune were definitely a highlight, despite inclement weather! The accommodation was excellent, VERY clean & the kitchen was well stocked with cutlery, crockery etc. The basket of goodies & items in the fridge were delicious & greatly appreciated, a thoughtful welcome.
All positive, the only one one small comment we have would be the roller blind in the second bedroom. The cord was so short, especially having to reach over the chest of drawers, we had to climb on a chair to raise & lower them. One blind was not long enough for the window. (being rectified - Owner)
We will certainly recommend Beaune & Porte Saint Nicolas to our friends . We had wonderful meals at Le Bistrot Bourguinon & Maison du Colombier,, but I think the best meal we had in France in 5 weeks was at Caves Madeline.
Many thanks again,

Beautiful place to stay in Beaune
The property was lovely. Lots of room for four people to share and yet have privacy in our own space in bedrooms. Right in the heart of Beaune so we could walk everywhere and within short driving distance of many places in the surrounding area - chateaux, wineries, Dijon, etc.
Going up two flights of stairs might be a challenge for some but it gave us great exercises when we were going in and out. One small problem with coffeemaker which was quickly solved by Su Bishop.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful home.

Very comfortable and accommodating flat in a beautiful town & region.
This flat was the perfect base for visiting the Bourgogne wine region. We had a car and visited several Chateaus, tasting rooms, and vineyards. A market in close vicinity helped keep us us well-supplied with food. Overall, this experience exceeded our expectations. Thank you Sue & David for all of your help.

This is a wonderful Apartment with a great location on Beaune!
We visited Beaune April 17 - April 21. The apartment was very well decorated and was well located inside the walls of Beaune. The owners and managers thought of everything so the place was well stocked with essentials we needed such as coffee, some chips and other food. They even left us a bottle of sparkling wine! The beds were very comfortable and each bathroom had towel warmers which was a nice option. There were many CDs and DVDs along with books and a scrabble game. They provided wood for a fire which was great as it was unseasonably cool in Beaune when we were there. The information book provided gave all the details about the apartment as well as great places to eat and ideas for sightseeing.
You cannot go wrong with this apartment!
