Hotel Le Cep

A stay at the impressive Hôtel Le Cep puts you in good company. Over the years, this well-loved property has hosted film stars, moguls and even astronauts. It is located in the heart of Beaune — the wine capital of Burgundy — and its two sixteenth-century mansions unite it harmoniously with its ancient surroundings. The 60 guest rooms and suites are named after the great wines of Burgundy, and each is individually designed, emphasizing such notable architectural details as stone stairs and beamed and coffered ceilings. Antique furnishings are showcased throughout, from the stone vault, where daily breakfast includes a cheese board and small glass of pinot noir, to Loiseau des Vignes restaurant, serving a "nostalgic cuisine" menu focusing on Burgundy specialties and regional wines. The hotel also has a massage salon, fitness center overlooking the tile roof of the Hospices de Beaune, and a centuries-old inner courtyard where breakfast and cocktails can be enjoyed in season.
