Burgundy elegance. Comfort and flavour. Calm and well-being. Welcome to Jean Christophe Charlet’s hotel.
“We provide a welcoming family feel in a beautifully sophisticated and elegant setting.”
In the heart of Burgundy, Jean Christophe invites you to discover history and gastronomy in a place dedicated to the art of living. The 3 star hotel he manages in Tournus, The Original Boutique Le Rempart is ideally located in Southern Burgundy, an emblematic French region. The Burgundian art of living reigns in the conviviality and authenticity of an elegant residence, a former guard house built in the 15th century. This elegant hotel in Tournus houses 34 classic and comfortable rooms and suites that symbolize "the nobility of the past and the refinement of the present," explains Jean Christophe. With the Brasserie du Rempart, with its old-fashioned flavors of Burgundian dishes and its grill menu, as well as its Pub, this hotel is the ideal place to fully enjoy Burgundy-Franche-Comté.
The 33 rooms and suites at this 3-star hotel are bright and spacious. They can sleep between one and four guests in comfort. Some are specially equipped for mobility-impaired guests.

LE QUARTIER GOURMAND ET LA BRASSERIE DU REMPART
This 3-star Tournus hotel in the heart of the Saône-et-Loire region makes the ideal base from which to explore everything that Burgundy has to offer.
EXPLORING TOURNUSThe lovely city of Tournus tucked away in the Mâconnais hills contains a few architectural jewels. One such treasure is the Romanesque Saint-Philibert de Tournus church built between the tenth and twelfth centuries which has a remarkable frontage and a surprisingly austere nave. Next, continue your stroll along the banks of the Saône. Enjoy the view of the Saint-Philibert church and the city itself. Keep going as far as the marina. In the centre of the pretty Place de l’Hôtel-de-Ville square you will find a statue of famous French painter Jean-Baptiste Greuze.
CORMATIN CHATEAUThis beautiful chateau has understated architecture and a “French rustic” frontage. Inside, you can admire the colourful decor of the Cabinet d'Harmonie, the Marchioness’s bedroom and the ceiling of the Cabinet des Curiosités... You can also relax in the peaceful chateau gardens. From the top of the aviary, you can see the whole park. Biblical paradise is represented with a triangular display featuring an apple tree evoking the forbidden fruit, a maze (a metaphor for difficulties) and paths which stand for the seven heavens.
HÔTEL-DIEU DE BEAUNEWith iconic superb architecture, elegant decor, famous glazed-tile roofs and an old well, the Hôtel-Dieu provides both the luxury of a Gothic palace and the simplicity of a former hospice. The Great Hall or “Room of the Poor” contains a touching statue of Christ with fifteenth-century links. In the Polyptych Hall, the Last Judgment polyptych altarpiece by Rogier van der Weyden is on display.
CLUNY ABBEYThe Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul Basilica was built between 1088 and 1130. Having been partly destroyed during the Revolution, it was taken down and sold off stone by stone. For a long time it was the largest church in Christendom, although only a few vestiges remain today. The Holy Water steeple gives you a sense of the original scale and beauty of this key Christian site.
This hotel halfway between Chalon-sur-Saône and Mâcon ideally located in Tournus, Burgundy, has three elegant and well-equipped meeting rooms.
