Swimming in a 1er cru vineyard

Four kilometres from Beaune is the famous wine village of Pommard and the home and winery of Estelle and Thierry Violot-Guillemard – Le Clos de Derrière-Saint-Jean.   Thierry was born here but the house has a very international feel; guests from many countries come to stay at their excellent chambres d’hôtes, Estelle speaks English and German, and their wines are exported as far afield as the USA, New Zealand and Japan.  Guests can bathe in the smart swimming pool right next to the fifty-year-old 1er cru Pommard vines and then relax with a glass of the estate’s wine and gaze at the swallows skimming through the vine rows.  Breakfast here is superb!
