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!

Vacances à la Beaunoise…


Another lovely vacances à la Beaunoise for our 2012 guests.

“We stayed here 5 nights. The apartment is so nicely located, just a short walk to the Center Ville where all the action is!

Franck and Laura have done a wonderful job of restoration in this ancient building, and all appliances and furnishings are just as described and pictured. They have included many thoughtful touches. We especially appreciated the lovely bed linens and fluffy towels.

Franck was so helpful in calling and emailing when we experienced difficulty with the wi-fi and TV.

The Brasserie Carnot was by far our favorite restaurant. Food, and service outstanding. Saturday market should not be missed!

We highly recommend Le Relais de Beaune.”
