I stayed at the 4 star Abbaye de Maizières in Beaune, France. It was founded in the 12th century!
As you can see it’s absolutely stunning!
I was ever so slightly confused when I started to flick through my complimentary issue of Vogue only to find it was written in Japanese!
We didn’t eat at the Hotel restaurant, where the chef has a Michelin star none the less.
But we did eat in a heavenly restaurant in the town of Beaune, that is based in a wine cellar where I discovered a neat little drink called “The Cardinal”!
You pour a big slosh of Cassis in a wine glass then top with chilled red wine!
Sounds crazy but it most absolutely works!
