“Perfect in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013 via mobile

We have just returned from spending 4 nights with Elisabeth and Denis in Ciel. It was undoubtedly the best B and B we have ever stayed in. The location, the meals, the wine and the hosts were perfect in every way. Elisabeth cannot do enough to make her guests welcome. She must walk miles everyday carrying trays of food and drinks to secluded spots all over the garden. In addition we were treated to a tour of the cellars of the wine company with whom Denis works, which was very interesting indeed. I understand that in French the word 'ciel' not only means 'sky', but also 'heaven'. This Ciel certainly lives up to its name.

Elizabeth produced sensational food; Denis shared with us his passion for the wines of Burgundy. A lovely couple who really made our stay memorable - oh and the house and bedrooms are nice too!

Elizabeth and Denis could not have been better hosts. The B&B was a beautiful French home in a quaint village in the countryside of France. Our room had a very comfortable bed, a large bath tub, and we were made to feel completely at home. We dined both nights at the home to a thoughtfully prepared meal by Elizabeth and attended to by Denis who recommended some very fine wines. As my husband said, "Why go out when the best meal we have had in a long time was the night before at the B&B". We had several hectic travel days before arriving and found a beautiful place to unwind and recharge.

Room Tip: I am always looking to soak in the bath so that is the one we chose and it was perfect.

This was our second visit to Le Petit Clos. Minimum stays are for 2 nights but we stayed for 3 nights this August. Having enjoyed our first visit a couple of years back we had always wanted to return. Le Petit Clos is run by Elizabeth and Denis, they have three delightful rooms and if pre-booked will serve dinner to their guests.

The house is an old farm/manor house in a wonderful setting with lovely views. There is a small pool, just enough to be able to swim. This is a truly wonderful place to visit.

Dinner is prepared by Elizabeth and it is exceptional in every regard. Great ingredients cooked to perfection. You can select wines with assistance from Denis from the vigneron in Savigny-les-Beaune that he represents (worth visiting if the opportunity arises). Breakfasts were also wonderful, a super mix of fruit, yoghourt, breads etc..

Le Petit Clos is near both Beaune and Chalon-sur-Saône. They’re lovely towns but we thought Beaune was rather too touristy and enjoyed a visit to Chalon and its market rather better.

We booked this wonderful Maison d'hotes as a simple stopover on our journey south but wished that we had been able to stop much longer to explore the area and to enjoy the hospitality and the culinary expertise of our hostess. As a group of five we were overwhelmed by the charm of the the old farm; the welcome and company of our two hosts, Elizabeth and Denis; and the lovely dinner provided for us in the garden. There is almost nothing to add to the praise that others have already expressed and our only criticism would be that the sign outside is so subtle that we almost missed it!

I would like to thank Elizabeth and Denis for the most wonderful 3 days of our tour through Europe, Elizabeth is the most talented cook you could find, the local travel advice was great and to top it all off what a beautiful location and home. Denis was fantastic waiting on tables, great wine tasting and a visit to his wine cellar. I hope we can return soon.

My husband and I have stayed with Elisabeth and Denis twice now, and most recently we took my parents with us to share this experience. We cannot say enough about how wonderful this place and the hosts are. After living in France for almost four months and eating lots of incredible food we still feel convinced that Elisabeth's food is possibly on par with the best in the country! We look forward to dinners here every time and they never disappoint. Denis' wine selections are always perfect with the meals, and exploring his wine cellar is always a highlight. We cannot wait to visit again.
