Dijon Hospitality

During a recent trip to France, my friends stayed at a perfect studio apartment right across the street from the best museums in Dijon. They'd found their home away from home online, and after reading many spectacular comments, booked it. I stayed a few blocks away in my own little place. I'm such a stickler for customer service, but even I was beyond impressed with Coco, the owner of the studio, who even picked us up at the train station (me, too, and I wasn't even staying at her place)! Among other things, Coco grocery shopped and stocked the fridge before our arrival, made a small chocolate cake, and set a beautiful table with fresh fruit and other treats before my friends checked in. After check-in, she took all of us on a delightful walking tour of the town. She also arranged for a taxi to take us to the train station when we departed (and only because she was unavailable). You seldom see this kind of hospitality these days...simply amazing!

I believe Dijon may be somewhat overlooked as a travel destination in France. We found that many people came for just a long weekend. We stayed for a week, and could've stayed longer. It is a lovely city, with wonderful restaurants, shops, markets, and museums.  For those of you interested in this super fantastic studio, you can meet Coco and check it out here.
