Just steps to the surrounding vineyards and the center of Meursault, Charmelieu (meaning "charming place") is the ideal home while exploring Burgundy. This 200-year old former vineyard workers' house retains original features such as exposed wood beams, interior stone walls & niches, oak and ceramic tile floors, and stone fireplaces. Completely gutted and renovated in 2005 and refurnished & updated in 2012/13, Charmelieu retains it's old world charm with the convenience of modern amenities. Owners Michael and Christie Shaps offer recommendations for restaurants and attractions, plus private wine tasting of Maison Shaps wines upon request.
The house has a private walled-in courtyard, two large master bedrooms with private baths, a modern kitchen and large living area. The first master bedroom has a queen-size bed and an alcove with a bunk bed (two twins). The loft master bedroom has a queen-size bed and two twin-size beds. Both master bathrooms have full-size showers (one with a bathtub and one with an oversized standing shower) and heated towel racks. There is a half bath and pullout couch in the living room. Central heating and air conditioning has been installed--with remote controls available throughout the house.
The kitchen has been completely renovated and modernized but retains its old-world charm with tile floors, stone walls and a stone fireplace. It includes all new appliances, a large monastery-style oak table inside & a large table in the courtyard, making eating at home convenient and comfortable.
The house is just a five minute walk to the center of Meursault, where two bakeries, a butcher, grocery, pharmacy, post office, bank, tourist center and several excellent restaurants are located. Every week the local market is held in the center of town. The town of Meursault and the surrounding vineyards can be explored by foot, while a bigger city, Beaune, is a ten minute drive away. There are numerous historic sites within an easy drive.

Located in Meursault, one of Burgundy's most renowned wine villages. Wineries abound in Meursault and the neighboring villages. Wine tastings, biking or walking through the vineyards, and enjoying traditional Burgundian cuisine are just a few of the activities available. Vehicles can be parked just off the street in front of the house. It is a short drive to many villages, castles, abbeys and historic sites.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Michael & Christie Shaps reside in the United States in Virginia where they own a winery. Michael studied winemaking in Beaune in the 1990s. While Michael is a renowned winemaker in Virginia, he returned to Burgundy in 2005 and purchased a house and winery in Meursault, an ideal place for him to call his home-away-from-home and produce Burgundian wines. The Shaps' rent their house, called Charmelieu, and produce wine under the name Maison Shaps.
Why the Owner Chose Meursault, France:
The Shaps' chose this property because Michael wanted to return to Burgundy where he studied winemaking. Meursault's reputation as a top wine producing village, and it's quintessential French charm made it the ideal place to renovate a house and winery.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Charmelieu is a home-away-from-home for the Shaps family. The exposed beams and stone fireplaces add character, while the modern bathrooms and kitchen add convenience and comfort.
