Itinerary

Additional Information

Here you'll find medieval Beaune, whose walled old town houses the immaculately preserved 15th century Hospices de Beaune, picture-perfect Meursault and a host of authentic Burgundy chateaux; this region has more chateaux than any other in France. To the north, past the Combe Lavaux - Jean Roland Nature Reserve, where wildflowers grow and peregrine falcons and eagles nest, lies the regional capital of Dijon. The city boasts a rich blend of architecture alongside the magnificent palace of the Valois Dukes, now home to the Museum of Fine Art. The walks provide a wonderful balance of quiet country lanes, vineyard tracks and woodland trails taking in sleepy, unspoilt villages, majestic vine-clad hills and ancient oak forest. Sample fine wines in 13th century cellars and enjoy lunch in a selection of medieval towns. This area is popular with gastronomes and for good reason! You'll stay in wonderful hotels including an elegantly renovated farmhouse with picturesque gardens, a lovingly restored former winery and a modern 4 star hotel complete with spa facilities.
