From this idyllic home base, you are steps from charming shops, caf├ęs and galleries. Embark on a bike (or have a car arranged) to explore nearby famous winemaking towns, walk through the vineyards and enjoy a tasting with a local expert. This Burgundy experience offers a rich immersion into this magical region. In sum, it's pure pleasure.

A Little Bit About Bastion Ste. Anne: Holding a unique place in B&R's history, the Butterfield property dates back to 1637. An official historic monument, the Bastion Ste. Anne has been transformed into a modern gem of comfort. The one-bedroom home (plus loft bedroom, best suited for a max of two young kids) features ancient stone walls that are juxtaposed with clean contemporary design. Its walled courtyard houses a gorgeous garden that is private just to you.
