Abbaye de la Bussière



Editor Rating
Scale of 90-100

Founded by Cistercian monks in 1131, this former abbey was also once the country residence of the bishops of Dijon. Many years later, in 2005, the manor was converted into a 20-room hotel by husband-and-wife team Clive and Tanith Cummings. Set amid a walled 17-acre park, this magnificent three-story mansion is constructed of mellow golden limestone and topped by a steep slate roof. The individually decorated guest accommodations feature fine antiques, toile de Jouy fabrics and baths with Jacuzzi tubs. Some are appointed with rustic beamed ceilings, arched windows and four-poster beds. Atmospheric public areas include a music room with a fireplace, an intimate “ladies’ lounge,” a casual bistro and Guillaume Royer’s Michelin-starred restaurant with a menu that displays a shrewd synthesis of French tradition and the modern demand for lighter and healthier eating. Biking tours and private wine-tasting sessions can be arranged.
