This country hotel is really isolated being sandwiched between the agricultural land to the west and overlooking the Saone just a stone’s throw away. We were greeted very informally by the lady owner/manager (hints of a copy of the Jennifer Saunder’s character Edina Monsoon from “Absolutely Fabulous”) and without any hint of bureaucracy, she lead us up the ancient uneven...

We booked the JdeS and then saw some less than complimentary reports on TA - there were enough good ones to make us stick at it - and I must say I am very glad we did. The food got the most poor comments, so let me add my own thoughts as this is as much a restaurant as a...

We visited this place as a family. The location is wonderful along the river Saone. The rooms are nice with view to the river. We ate at the restaurant what was ok but not special. The owner Caroline is very nice. But once we had a misunderstanding about our staying and she seemed very annoyed about that. Not very client...

My husband and I stayed at Jean de Saone for 3 days this April. It could not have been more perfect. The tone was set by Caroline, the charming proprietaire, yet more like a gracious and warm hostess. The 17th century former customs toll house was decorated by Caroline herself with comfort and taste. Our view of the Saone from...

Probably one of the loveliest stays I've ever enjoyed was at Jean de Saone...what a find! This old guard house right on the river's edge, converted into a guest house, is idyllic beyond description. Caroline is the most charming of hostesses, the rooms are well-appointed, the breakfasts and dinners yummy, and the tranquility on the river bank unsurpassable. We enjoyed...

Incredibly beautiful place. The rooms are very nicely decorated and the view of the river in front is unforgettable. Very warm welcome - we were travelling with a small child and the owner did everything possible to make things easy for us. The breakfast on the terrace, under the trees, is a moment that will stay in my memory

We stayed at Jean de Saone in the midst of a 4 month trip around the world. After the hustle and bustle of the previous European cities we had visited, this quiet, secluded B&B was a welcome chance to relax and recharge. The B&B is located almost half way between Macon and Tournus (closer to Tournus), and is perfectly located...

We loved the hospitality and the quaintness of Jean de Saone. Caroline was so helpful and very charming. We ate there every night and it was delicious. I am vegetarian and they made a lovely dish for me. You can take beautiful walks along the River and our room had a view to die for. We drove to all the...

“There are only three, so take what you can, the two we stayed in were fine - the biggest and most expensive is actually a really lovely room. All face the river and are quiet. The restaurant is not noisy and other diners all left quietly.”

“The balcony must be shared with other guests. So don't take the rooms with balcony.”
