La Maison de la Vieille Vigne is our charming one bedroom, one bathroom restored winemaker’s cottage located in the winemaking village of Villers-la-Faye, which is only a ten minute drive from Beaune and seven minutes from Nuits-Saint-Georges.

It features a private attached courtyard where you can relax and enjoy Burgundy’s famous food and wine and soak up the enchanting atmosphere of local life. The village is surrounded by rolling vineyards and green hillsides that provide an ideal locale for walking, biking and hiking. Fabulous wine-tasting opportunities abound!

Best suited for one or two people, La Maison de la Vieille Vigne
is perfect for a romantic getaway or a solo retreat.

This authentic French retreat is so inspiring that Laura wrote one of her books about it - My Grape Village. A book about the purchase and renovation of the cottage. An evocative and honest journey where love, coupled with good French food and local wine, pave the way to la belle vie.


Really charming and romantic cottage. Well appointed kitchen, spacious bedroom, excellent ensuite bath, and laundry too! Easy access to Beaune, gorgeous cycling through countrified vineyards, and Chagny’s canal. A quintenessal French experience, with a stress-fee functionality for North American travellers wishing a memorable experience.

Franck and Laura’s cottage in Villers la Faye is everything as advertised and so much more. We were fortunate enough to stay in their wonderful lovely, warm, cozy vintners cottage for 10 days. We had an absolutely wonderful experience and cannot wait to return.

Many a night, after visiting every vineyard and village we could trip upon, including driving up to the cliffs overlooking the valley, we would end the day with a flickering fire warming us while we sipped the amazing Bourgogne wines and cooked our dinner.

Their cottage is authentic, beautifully decorated, well appointed and could not be cleaner; while they have taken into consideration every need a visitor may have.
