Behind Les Plumes

Burgundy is where I was born, where I grew up and wanted to settle there permanently as I approach forty years in this beautiful bed and breakfast project!

I’ve always had this connection for traveling, discovering places, people and gastronomy.

Tourism diploma in hand I worked for more than 16 years in travel agency in Lyon and Chalon Sur Saône. I loved my job, the contact with customers, informing and supporting customers in their projects. And then, little by little, this desire for bed and breakfast became obvious, I have always liked to welcome people at home and I was looking for more flexibility in my family life.

I was sure I wanted to get closer to the Beaune vineyards; I have always really enjoyed these 4 seasons so marked in Burgundy, we live to the rhythm of the vines and the landscapes are so beautiful.

After much research, in 2014 the crush was instantaneous for Gilly Lès Cîteaux and our future house. The setting, the huge garden and its pretty courtyard, the arrangements to be made, I could already see myself there! We had to be motivated … it took us a year of work. Some training also to develop myself! Oenology, hygiene, English and the business license, but I was always very motivated! The Feathers were born and on Christmas Day 2015 I welcomed my 1st customers!

Since then, I have received all types of clients, families, couples, pros too; lots of discussion and laughter and above all great encounters!

To advise you as much as possible, to share my tips and good addresses, it’s my daily pleasure. I look forward to welcoming you back home!
