Hotel, once a spiritual retreat, remains heavenly
Situated in Burgundy, one of the premier wine-growing regions of France, the Abbaye de la Bussiere has to be one of the most beautiful hotels in the world. As you pass through the elegant wrought-iron gates at the foot of the driveway, the imposing stone building looks as if it came out of a fairy tale. Ironically, back in the 12th century, this now sybaritic hotel housed a spiritual community of Cistercian monks.
