We were driving back from Provence and had an overnight stop before travelling back to the UK. What a wonderful experience from start to finish. The house itself was beautiful inside and outside. The gardens were lovely with a lake, small bridge and various seating areas. Although we didn't use the pool it was very cleverly placed in the old...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 October 2016 via mobile

What a magnificent property and wonderful history of a very special French family. La Cimentelle was built in the 1730's and has been in the same family since. It is evident that they love and cherish this beautiful stately home. Attention to detail and modern facilities are all evident within a time capsule. The grounds are spacious and a pleasure...

This, for us, was a delightful original, imaginative experience - very high quality cuisine, served in company with random (limited to 4-6) co-guests. The overall quality of experience depends heavily on the co-guests. In our experience, somewhat limited conversation & inability of our co-guests to add positively to social discourse was disappointing. Given the concept, I do not see a...

A hotel situation on the grounds of an ancient (now ruined) cement factory. Beautiful lawn and pond. A swimming pool placed on top of the ruined factory. Comfortable room with tea (no coffee). Situated a few miles from Avallon and 15 from Vezelay along beautiful country roads. Fair breakfast.

We stayed in a building separate from the main house which was very private, no stairs required, and just short distance to the dining room. The second floor pool is unusual but nice. What was most spectacular were the helpful owners and the food--including an afternoon cooking class. We would highly recommend La Cimentelle.

We stayed for 6 nights this September in 'La Petite Cimentelle'- the self-contained accommodation (or 'Gite') next to the main house. It is a fabulous space for families (we have 2 kids) and the photos on their website really don't do it justice. La Cimentelle itself is located a few km from Avallon, a lovely old town with all the...

We stayed for just one in September night while touring Burgundy. It's a wonderful, if a bit quirky, old property--pleasant room, warm and welcoming host, lovely garden, excellent and generous breakfast. But whats really special is the evening meal offered at the inn's kitchen table. The cooking was very good, the price fair, and the opportunity to chat with other...

My partner booked the property for an overnight stay whilst we were touring the region. We arrived in the middle of the village fete (for want of a better description).

I stayed for only two nights at La Cimentelle - a beautiful house and an awesome, silent and wonderful decorated and spacious bedroom on the first floor. A very nice, outside swimming-pool in the first floor of the abandoned old cement factory was a real plus when the outside temperature was around 30C... The host/hostess Stephan and Nathalie served a...
