Whether you visit Le Relais Bernard Loiseau as a stopover or for a longer break, the experience will stay in your memory for a very long time. This 5-star hotel lies in the Morvan Nature Park, around a one-hour drive from Dijon or Beaune and is a member of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux network of independent hotels.
Built in 1870, the traditional décor is enhanced by touches of contemporary style and convenience, creating a personal and intimate vibe. Rich wood panelling, an impressive library, open fireplaces, billiard room and distinctive antiques and artwork, all add to the atmosphere. While the 21st century makes its presence felt with a stylish glass lift housed in an outdoor spiral staircase.
The hotel is small, with just 33 luxuriously appointed rooms and suites. Many contain exposed beamed ceilings, grand bedsteads, overstuffed armchairs and imposing silk drapes. Some rooms have balconies, or you can upgrade to a private garden. Rooms range from Comfort to Deluxe, while Suites offer separate sitting rooms. Upgrade to the VIP Spa Suite to enjoy your very own spa facilities and statement contemporary fireplace.
Children are welcome, with cots, baths and monitors provided free of charge. You can also book two connecting rooms. There is a children’s playroom, and the chef is happy to cater for young tastebuds. Dogs are also welcome and there is a dedicated corner of the garden in which they can play.
There are two onsite restaurants. Most people come for the gastronomic dining experience offered by the two-star Michelin restaurant, La Côte d’Or. Refreshingly unstuffy, the dining room overlooks the romantic gardens, where you can feast on delicately crafted dishes created from the finest ingredients from Burgundy and the Auvergne. For those looking for more bistro-style cuisine, head to Loiseau des Sens for an Asian-inspired menu.
The award-winning spa is a sensual delight and brings a whole new dimension to the art of wellbeing. Guests can enjoy a multisensory experience, designed to stimulate all five senses with an array of sensations. Dedicated to achieving optimal health and relaxation, guests can spend time in the sea air cabin, the ice fountain, or the sauna, to name but a few of the sensory experiences on offer.
The hotel can be found in the small town of Saulieu in the Morvan Natural Park in deepest Burgundy. It is around an hour’s drive from Dijon or Beaune. There is a charging station for electric cars at the property.
