Join us for a Cromey House Party.
We’ll weave you in to the tapestry of Burgundy.
Let our team, each in their own way, take you
somewhere you have never been.
History and culture, food and wine, yes. You won’t find better.
But it’s the intangibles that set Cromey apart.
The unexpected things that let you know that this is someplace special.
That you are someone special.

and an innate sense of hospitality.
But more than anything else, they bring a smile to every room they enter.

FRENCH COUNTRY CHARM
OFF THE BEATEN PATH IN VERY DISCREET BURGUNDY

In terms of wine and wonder, Burgundy is a place apart.
With the finest wines in the world, one of France’s richest culinary traditions
and the glories that the great Dukes left as their legacy,
Burgundy is at the same time uncrowded and undiscovered,
a magnificent sweep of valleys and hills,
a dream landscape as beautiful as it is unexpected.

“Cannot imagine a better way to enjoy Burgundy” Jim B.

“You have discovered the sweet spot, and we appreciate it!” Sally K.

CROMEY IS THE HOME OF ELDEN WINE

And if Burgundy is such a place, the Domaine de Cromey is its heart.
We bring 30 years’ experience and a passion
for all things Burgundian to this noble place.
At Cromey, Burgundy comes alive.
The food and wine, the history and culture,
the green, clean quality of life.
We know of no one else who can
take you into the real Burgundy as we do.
This is the place we call home.
And at Cromey, we garnish our local knowledge
with the personal touches that make Burgundy your home too.

WINE TASTINGS YOU’LL NEVER FORGET
We have been working with many of our producers for generations.
Let us introduce you to our winemaker friends and their families.
You will never think of wine tasting in the same way.

Dennis told me one thing about wine that
changed my life.  

He said, don’t drink appellations,
drink producers. George W.

Our tasting with Dennis at Domaine Arcelain
said more about Burgundy, 

and life in general really,
than we could have ever expected. Jane T.

ONE OF THE WORLD’S GREAT CYCLING DESTINATIONS

Cromey is ideally situated in what is
the greatest road cycling environment I have ever experienced.  

It is at the hub of a number of routes that loop in all directions 
and include a mix of dedicated bike paths and magnificent scenic rural roads 
that are well maintained and have little automobile traffic.  
The advent of the e-bike has opened up this hilly terrain to a much broader community of cycling enthusiasts
to ride out of the valleys to capture breathtaking views of vineyards,
limestone formations, and charming villages.  

Our group was amazed that each day we covered a different course with so much variation between courses.  
To have all of this from one starting and finishing point
(with unsurpassed hospitality!) 

makes Domaine de Cromey a cycling dream vacation.  Tom P.  

RENT TOP QUALITY BIKES
We work with Bourgogne Randonnées in Beaune
who rent top-quality hybrid and world-class carbon bike,
as well as e-bikes, the great equalizer!

A DREAM CUISINE

“Ellie’s food: words have no meaning” Meg C.  

We came to Burgundy over thirty years ago
to study French cuisine and wine.
And while we have spent a lifetime
exploring Europe’s great culinary corners,
no other place is so evocative
of the life we love and aspire to as Burgundy.
Cromey is imbued with that spirit.
It’s an organic, uncompromising,
passionate pursuit of excellence in the simplest things.
Food, wine and the places and people that produce them.

ORGANIC GARDEN
For a cook, there is no greater pleasure
than an organically grown vegetable,
straight from the earth, warm from the sun.
Good food is at the heart of the Cromey ethic,
so the vegetable garden is in constant expansion.
Organic soils and compost, cover crops and raised beds,
no chemical fertilizers or pesticides,
no compromise.

EXCITING TIMES
Burgundy today is a culinary renaissance.
Beaune is the happening epicenter, but great food can be found all over the region.
We live in one of the world’s great culinary centers,
which means that we can source crème-de-la-crème ingredients.

YEARS OF EXPERIENCE COME TO FRUITION
The Domaine de Cromey is a luxury manor house complex
dedicated to the enjoyment of the culinary traditions
and the natural beauty of Burgundy.
With six luxurious en-suite rooms set around a courtyard
within the acres of a walled-in park,
Cromey offers modern comfort and quiet sophistication
in a setting from another era.

“What a fantastic visit! 
The accommodations are world-class. The staff is perfect in every way. 
And words pale when it comes to the food–Ellie’s cooking knows no equal.  
We are grateful to have been here” Peg D.

We still have two prime weeks available
