Relais Bernard Loiseau

I’m an unabashed Francophile, a former French teacher and a frequent traveler to France. After seven trips to Burgundy, traveling by car and on barge and riverboat cruises with my late husband or with friends, I returned alone, last September, to experience the vendange (grape harvest). I was in the vineyards and wine cellars at Olivier Leflaive and Chateau de Pommard, and met winemakers, innkeepers, sommeliers, a masseuse and a mustard-maker at Fallot, in Beaune. And, after many years on my bucket list, I finally had the opportunity to stay at a famous gastronomic destination, Relais Bernard Loiseau. It also happens to be a warmly welcoming, family-friendly, family-operated inn with two indoor swimming pools, located in the naturally scenic region of the Morvan forest, with its granite mountains, lakes and outdoor adventures.
