Additional Information

Here, culture and tradition thrive amid some of the world's most prestigious vineyards, which are now collectively recognised as an UNESCO World Heritage Site. To the north, past numerous medieval chateaux, lies Dijon with its rich blend of architecture and the magnificent palace of the Dukes of Burgundy. A short distance away you'll find the tranquil Canal de Bourgogne, meandering along the Ouche River valley up to the fortified 15th century Chateauneuf-en-Auxois, which sits fairytale-like on a hilltop and is listed as one of France's most beautiful villages. Cycle along quiet lanes, vineyard tracks, tranquil waterside paths and smooth greenways, enjoying views of majestic vine-clad hills, fields of shimmering wheat and waterways where grey herons stalk fish. Each day discover opportunities to sample fine wines and visit esteemed producers before stopping for lunch in unspoilt villages set against a backdrop of swaying vines and ancient oak forest. In a region known for its epicurean finesse, you can really enjoy fine dining on this holiday. There will be excellent local dishes on offer in the hotels and in local restaurants such as Oeufs en Meurette, Poulet de Bresse a la Creme, Perche aux Noix and of course exquisite cheeses like the pungent Epoisses de Bourgogne, all washed down with the region's incredible Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. You'll stay in excellent hotels including a perfectly located hotel in Beaune, an elegantly renovated farm and a marvellous 18th century chateau with a pool and eight hectares of carefully tended grounds.
