La Cueillette

Rue de Cîteaux, 9 km (5½ miles) southwest of Beaune, Meursault, 21190, France

Sitting pretty in the middle of manicured rows of Meursault vines, the Château de Citeaux provides a stately setting for this hotel and spa. The grand Napoléon III ballroom, with its monumental fireplace, creaky parquet floors, and ostentatiously decorated walls and ceiling, is the backdrop for Alexandre Bellini's top-notch cuisine (closed January, no lunch). In the opposite wing, modern guest rooms with minimalist decor are easier on the eye; those on the first floor have private terraces with stunning views over the vineyards or village. After touring some world-class wine producers, take a plunge in the property’s indoor pool, or revive body and soul in the hammam. For full-on pampering, book a Fruititherapy treatment at the spa, where options include a body scrub with blackcurrant and grape seeds, a fruit pulp wrap, and a seasonal fruit face mask.
