A few days in BurgundyOctober 19, 2014
I love the french courtyard.
Our petit déujeuner was a scrumptious buffet each morning. A variety of cheeses, jellies and jams, pastries, fresh fruit. Ooh la la!!! Actually in french, oh là là.
Served on Villeroy and Boch Luxembourg china no less. I was impressed.
I did enjoy making soft boiled eggs outside. Don't you love the marble top pastry cart?
Turn your timer over, wait five minutes and....
Viola! Your egg is ready. This was a great start to our first full day in Beaune.
The hotel was a pleasure but let's head to Beaune, a nearby town with historical sights, great architecture, beautiful flowers and a slower pace of french life.
Beaune is a delightful french town full of quaint shops and cafes.
First, we took the tourist train to get an overview of the city. We were in the back of the train and winding around the narrow roads I began to feel a little queasy and thankfully felt better after we got out.
And this!!!! (La Poulet a là Crème) The two courses I thought I ordered were actually two plats! So my lunch cost 39 euros!!!! The chicken and au gratin potatoes were great. The crayfish was terrible and that was a good thing because we know one lunch is enough. I didn't have room for the two desserts that were included. I also didn't have anyone to share my mistake with and it was so funny!
I am assuming she was a tourist also but I could tell she wasn't an american.
One of the highlights you must see in Beaune is Hotel Dieu built in 1443. The glazed roof tiles are beautiful. Stay tuned for a complete tour of Hotel Dieu in my next post. I will explain about the colorful tiles and its history. It is not a hotel. Au revoir.
