A wonderful but brief stay. Many thanks to Pauline for her warm welcome and delicious dinner and breakfast. Would highly recommend.
What an outstanding experience the quick stopover at La Grappille has been! This brand new B&B overlooking the Beaujolais hills is a treat: three rooms, each with carefully selected furniture and matching colors, not to mention the thoughful amenities really makes you feel at home instantly. Should there not be enough space in the room, one can use a private salon with a very appealing library; also, the sumptuous breakfast is served in there: Pauline went all the extra miles to the next village to fetch fresh croissants, since the local bakery had already run out of them...
As for the offer of "Table d'hôte": Bruce and Pauline took turns to bring out a fantastic meal under the open skies - including local natural wines (which never cause a headache the next morning, since they don't contain sulfites :-)
There is so much to do in the vicinity - shall it be a stroll in the vineyards or - should you be more interested in the final product - a tour through some vine cellars including tastings, of course. And should your time be limited, Bruce holds a couple of very nice bottles right on the premises, in the original vine cellar of La Grappille...
Lyon is just a short ride away: don't bother with the city hassle and missing parking space, since at La Grappille you're in the countryside where it's quiet and no traffic disturbing you.
As for Pauline and Bruce: the hosts are one of a kind - very charming and helpful with all issues/questions/information and know what their guests wish for. A gem in the Air B'n'B collection!
In short: highly recommendable! As for us, we are very much looking forward to visit La Grappille again soon!
RAS ! J'espère que Bruce et sa famille ont passé un agréable weekend a Reims!
Merci pour les nougats :) :)
C'est avec plaisir que je vous accueillerai à Reims une nouvelle fois!
Très heureuse de votre venue, et d'avoir fait connaissance avec Oscar
