This summer I experienced the best massage I have EVER had in my life.

It was at “Renaissance” in Ladoix-Serrigny, just a roll down the hill through the vineyards from both Magny and Villers.  Renaissance is run by Sandrine, who is not only a phenomenal masseuse but a wonderful, empathetic person.  The whole experience at Renaissance is uplifting and profoundly relaxing.

It is no surprise that her massage studio is now incredibly popular with locals (including every member of Franck’s family!) so if you are planning a trip to our rentals definitely make a reservation (or we can do it for you) in advance.   You will not be disappointed!

Fête de la Musique

Tonight (June 21st) is the “Fête de la Musique” all over France.  To celebrate la musique and the longest day of the year almost every town and small village in France has some sort of free public musical event on offer – we’ll be heading to Beaune to listen to the notes under a soft June sky.
