About La Maison du Couvent - Caroline & Max GIGANDET

We are both native from the Beaune area, and we just achieved the complete renovation of this former Convent from the 17th century. This building has got a lot charm, and many of the original materials are still in place, including the classic oak-beamed ceiling, some old parquet floor, and classic and original tiles.

We did the renovations as it was our “home sweet home”, creating a warm and personal decoration, to provide the best feeling to our guests. All the renovations have been made by local craftsmen, and as an interior architect I had a lot of pleasure to coordinate their work and put in relief all the character from the past.

The kitchen has been made on demand, with top range selection of kitchen appliances, we have carefully selected the beds, including large dimensions (1 Kind size bed – 180 x 200 / 1 Sofa bed 160 x 200).

We have done a mix of modern and old pieces of furniture, selected some warm painting colors (Farrow & Ball / Ressources), to provide our guests the nicest stay as possible.

La Maison du Couvent - Caroline & Max GIGANDET purchased this house in 2014
