In Burgundy’s Beaune, an 18th century building and its renovation into spacious, contemporary flats.
The town of Beaune nestles in the heart of the “Climates of Burgundy” (Burgundy vineyards), classified on the UNESCO World Heritage List, and acts as the Burgundy wine capital. Its world renown is also based on the wine auction held by the Hospices every third Sunday in November.
Standing in its historic centre, this flat is 10 minutes from slip roads for the A6 motorway, a crossroads providing links to Paris or Geneva in 2½ hours and Lyon airport in 1½ hours. The train station, just a 10-minute walk, puts Paris less than 2 hours away. Beaune aerodrome, a 15-minute drive away, is open to civil aircraft. Numerous food shops, markets, restaurants and hotels are within walking distance. Boutiques are also brought very much to the fore with a wide choice of national brand names and local craftsmen, art galleries, antique shops and wine merchants.
The property, between Rue-Rousseau-Deslandes and Rue-des-Tonneliers, is an outbuilding of Sainte-Trinité Hospital known as the Hospice-de-la-Charité. It is composed of two buildings set out around two main, paved, rectangular courtyards. The facades are enhanced with flower beds with a central square of medicinal herbs and plants, surrounded by boxwood. They are reached via an impressive stone gateway and its gates on the south side and via a discreet little door opposite the hospital on the north side. One of the flats can be accessed via these courtyards, near to the statue of Christ and its stone font. The facade on Rue-des-Tonneliers, initially named Rue-des-Négociants, is a succession of buildings, the walls of which are interspersed with carriage doors and discreet little entrance doors. The entrance to no. 9 links two buildings, with different heights and roof dormers, unified by a stone-coloured facade. Three steps go up into a private vestibule, with exposed Burgundy stone block walls and a travertine floor, providing access to the other four flats. The ground floor houses the entrance to one flat. Winding around its stairwell, a stone stairway, embellished with refined, wrought iron railings topped with a wooden handrail, goes up to the first floor and its landing, giving access to two flats. The stairway, now with vitrified wooden steps, continues up to the second-floor landing and the entrance to the fourth flat. The luminosity provided by a lightwell enhances the beauty of the exposed stone walls and the elegance of the stairway which appears to pirouette.
HistoryThe history of Beaune is linked to its geographic, strategic, religious and hospital position. Since the 3rd century, the actions of the abbeys, convents and hospices have been intertwined with the history of wine and the development of trading companies. Bearing witness to this are the world-renowned Hospices-de-Beaune founded in 1443. The other important building is Sainte-Trinité Hospital known as the Hospice-de-la-Charité founded in 1645 by Antoine-Rousseau and his wife Barbe-Deslandes. Initially founded for reasons of “pro remedio animae” (salvation of souls), the hospice accommodated young orphans, providing them with shelter, food and education for more than three centuries. The first two Saint-Vincent-de-Paul nuns arrived in 1690. The charitable and benevolent spirit was ever to remain on these premises. A school for poor, young girls, teaching them a domestic or arts and crafts trade, saw the light of day in 1728. At the beginning of the 19th century, the buildings on Rue-des-Tonneliers were joined and redesigned in accordance with plans drawn up by Louis-Moyne, a famous, local architect, in order to provide the nuns with housing. In 1880, the town took back the buildings whilst allowing the nuns to stay. The 15 July 1903, the date when the nuns were evicted, remains in the memory …
