*****

Le Relais du Vieux Beaune is located on the second floor (one floor up from the street) of a newly restored 18th century building with a private, shared courtyard set well back from the street. Just walk across the cobblestoned street in the mornings to buy your croissants at one of the town's best boulangeries. At lunch or dinner enjoy a fabulous meal at one of Beaune's many rustic bistros or Michelin starred restaurants and then retire back to your French pied-a-terre for a fabulous sleep in our top-of-the-line beds made up with high quality linens.

Beaune is a vibrant but peaceful town of 20,000 people which is the epicentre of the winemaking culture in Burgundy. Winetasting opportunities are literally to be found at every street corner!

Grab the French market bags we leave for you and head two blocks away to stock up at Beaune's large and wonderful twice weekly outdoor market on the stunning Place Carnot - cheeses, fruits, bread, clothes, and goodies galore.

Beaune is a medieval jewel - extremely picturesque and remarkably well-preserved. Walk around the middle age fortifcations that encircle the town or just take exquisite pleasure in sitting at one of Beaune's many cafes or in our flagstoned courtyard enjoying a sublime glass of wine or coffee.

You can take off and explore the rolling vineyards and Burgundy's famous and quaint wine villages which surround Beaune such as Pommard, Volnay, Meursault, Gevrey-Chambertin, and Pernand-Vergelesses by foot, bike, or car. There is a fabulous bike rental shop that helps with trip planning just a block away.

We feel our mission is to allow our guests to experience Burgundy and Beaune like a local, so we leave a ton of local information and 'insider' tips at the apartment for your perusal, as well as a special gift to welcome you to this very special part of France. Although we do not live onsite, we are always available to help you get the most out of your stay in Beaune and in Burgundy.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are a French - Canadian couple who met and fell in love in Burgundy. I am from Victoria, BC, Canada and came to Beaune on a Rotary exchange when I was 18. During that year I met and fell madly in love with Franck, a native Burgundian from a winemaking village just outside of Beaune. That was 18 years ago and now we have three lovely Franco-Canadian daughters, four vacation rentals in and around Beaune, and a very trans-atlantic lifestyle! Our rentals and free activity-planning service allow you to live in Burgundy like a local. We love helping our guests discover authentic France.

Why the Owner Chose Beaune, Côte-d'Or, France:
I was attending a lycee in Beaune when I met and fell in love with my husband (who also went to school there). When we lived in Burgundy between 2004-2009 my eldest daughters went to school in Beaune and our youngest daughter Clementine, was born in the Beaune hospital in one of their beautiful new O.R.s with a bay window looking out on to the sun coming up over the Burgundian vineyards. Not too shabby a way to enter ther world! Not only do we feel that Beaune is the perfect French town for our guests to enjoy and explore, but it is a place that holds a very special place in our hearts.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Walking across the street for some of the town's best baguettes, taking your market bags and filling them up at Beaune's extraordinary market, shopping in Beaune's unique and beautiful boutiques, enjoying a stroll around the medieval walls of the town as the sun sets or rises, reveling in a scrumptuous meal in one of Beaune's countless restaurants then strolling back home to fall into a deliciously comfortable bed, sitting on a bench in the picturesque Place Carnot watching the children ride on the ancient merry-go-round, having a winetasting in a 13th century stone cellar, going to the local cafe often enough that the waiters and the 'locals' recognize you and remember your favorite table...
