A typically Burgundian family home
The main building of the house dates from the 17th century. Most of the bedrooms are there, as is the large lounge, where you can enjoy a glass of wine around the beautiful Corton stone fireplace.
We have renovated this family house to welcome guests. The spirit of our ancestor, Louise Perrin de Puycousin, guided our choice in preserving the character of this house. From Louise we have obtained the name, as well as memories of a gentle, determined woman who loved her family and her region above all else.
Going even farther back in time, the hotel was the site of a Merovingian villa. It may even have become part of Charlemagne's estate on Corton Hill!
A garden in the vineyards, perfect for dreaming
Set behind the house and not overlooked, the garden is planted with box, roses and fragrant lilac. Merging into the vines, it offers unparalleled views.
Two stone dogs at the entrance to the garden watch over the relaxing guests. The fig and two-hundred-year-old linden trees over the lily pond enhance the impression of absolute peace.
"How could harmony be so strongly felt (…)? It was doing nothing much at all at the Villa Louise in Alexe-Corton except staring at vineyards after a snack of cheeses and a baked apple …"
