This was truly a great find. A castle/chateau in the middle of the Burgundy wine region, run by a couple who truly love what they do. We have never been small inn people, but, this inn which has 6 rooms, was luxury. The food, and ambiance were what you would expect. The rooms were large and comfortable, with high end toiletries.
The happy hour by the oversized fireplace were so memorable, and the service was great. We can’t wait to come back.

All I can say is wow! We just returned home from 2 incredible nights at La Borde and already look forward to returning. The property and grounds are stunning and Marieke and Rik made us feel so at home. We loved relaxing by the pool, wandering through the expansive gardens, playing tennis each morning, and enjoying Marieke’s delicious cooking. Our room (Safran) was luxurious and spacious. The landscaping is absolutely beautiful. We returned feeling rested and relaxed and so well taken care of. We will be recommending La Borde to all our friends!
Weirdest experience with one of the owners - so rude

My husband and I stayed at La Borde for 5 nights in July 2020. We had a really good stay, the place is beautiful. The food, although overpriced is very good. The rooms are luxurious and we had a great time.
We aimed at coming back in May 2021, so in June we booked and paid for a room for end of July for a few nights. Only the day after our booking, I found out that I would have to stay in the UK where I live for much longer than expected given some ongoing health issues, and that my covid vaccine would have to be postponed. We called La Borde to let them know immediately and cancel and explore postponing options. We spoke to one of the owners (the wife) who was extremely rude to us on the phone, and basically hung up on us because she was annoyed. She said “I’m going to cut your short” as my husband was explaining the situation and she ended the call. We were shocked. During our stay in 2020 there were a few occasions when she was a bit too direct and rude, but we decided to ignore it. This goes a step too far however and is an unacceptable way of treating returning customers. She clearly thought we were lying but that is no excuse!!!! Needless to say, despite the beautiful grounds we will never go back to La Borde and won’t recommend it to our friends. Very disappointing especially given the price. We followed up with an email after the call and we’re reimbursed fully, but still. You are running a 5 star hotel - not a playground.

Lovely intimate yet spacious luxury inn in the countryside of Burgundy. It is rare gem and has the personal touch of the owners/hoteliers that are on site. If you want a nice moment in the countryside just 2 hours from Paris or a nice stopover while going toward the south of France, this is the place!
Felt at home

Just back from a (too) short stay at La Borde at the end of a few days in Bourgogne. This is a truly special place, run by two gifted and special hosts - Marieke and Rik.
The location, the extensive garden and land around the property - all available to explore, the sense of calm (just five, maximum six, rooms occupied) and the attention to detail in the rooms and the whole place let you know this is a very special stay.
A great pool, a beautiful junior suite with a high, open beamed, ceiling, kept cool by the medieval walls, as well as an effective airco. Nice touches were the espresso machine in the room and the Bose blue tooth speaker that actually worked.
Some lovely open areas, such as the terrace for breakfast or the bar/relaxation area, which had I been staying longer would definitely have seen me trying the Monkey 47 - the choice of a property’s gin can tell you a lot about a place.
As this was a Sunday, which is the evening they do not cook for guests, they recommended a lovely restaurant by the river about half an hour away in Vincelottes. This was a great recommendation.
Having driven through the regional parc de Morvan on our way, it is clear that there are lots of possibilities for things to do in this region and the history of Auxerre and the vineyards of Chablis are close as well.
However, the one thing above others, that I take away from this stay and which tells me I want to return is that you left feeling that you had been made to feel at home.
You had the chance to meet two great, driven people, who had made a success of project to build a business from scratch and who were managing to find their way through a challenging COVID environment, while offering a superlative experience.
