Burgundy, situated in Eastern France on the Swiss border, draws its name from the Burgundian tribes that emigrated there from the shores of the Baltic. Burgundy, a hilly province with rocky soil and a harsh winter climate, has been long known for its vineyards, some of which were planted 2,000 years ago by the Romans. The countryside is dotted with castles, monasteries and stone farmhouses and exudes a considerable rustic charm.
The room, located under a hip roof corner of the hotel, features dark beams on its 10-foot ceiling. The tapestry over the fireplace depicts the Burgundian grape harvest. An armoire and dresser are both early XIX Century antiques acquired from the Chateau de Sauvan. Hanging on the wall is an old copper bed warmer. Also in the room are a convertible sofa, a large table and side chairs.
