*****

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.

About Franck Germain

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.

Franck Germain purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Franck Germain chose Beaune

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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...

Lovely, Spacious Apartment in the heart of Beaune!

  • 5 of 5

Le Relais du Vieux Beaune is such a roomy, charming apartment! It was so nice that my daughter and I each had our own bedrooms. We loved opening the windows - the view out the kitchen window was so pretty. and the location is superb — so close to shopping and restaurants. The reference booklets that Franck and Laura provided were so helpful. Franck was always so prompt in responding to our emails. We only wish we could have stayed longer. We miss Beaune so much so we are starting to read Laura Bradbury’s books! Merci Beaucoup Franck & Laura!

Perfect Apartment in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this charming apartment in Beaune. The home was inviting, with lovely decor, and well appointed. There were four adults sharing the two bedroom apartment, which worked out perfectly. The bedrooms were separated by a comfortable living room. The kitchen worked well for a breakfast or dinner meal. We all felt at home in the spacious apartment.

A very high plus, was the excellent communication from Franck and Laura, making everything very easy to feel at home. They also included several folders in the apartment with useful information.

Beaune is the perfect town in Burgundy, and we can't wait to return again to this apartment.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

My 3 sisters and I stayed at Relais du Vieux Beaune and lived it. The place is clean, comfortable, and very nicely decorated. There are many booklets that provide info on the apartment, the appliances, the places to visit, to eat, to explore. It is within walking distance to many of the major sites, shopping and restaurants. I would highly recommend it
