The highlight of our vacation to France and Germany was our 5 days in Burgundy at the Burgundy Idyl. Linda Watten was every bit the gracious and generous hostess, not to mention translator and informative tour guide. Her Inn was quite charming and most comfortable for my husband and I and ideally situated within easy driving distance to historical landmarks, wineries, outstanding food and more.
