Many know Burgundy by its capital, Dijon, which is famous for being the birthplace of the mustard of the same name and for producing some world-renowned wines. But Burgundy is much more than that. The region is ideal for a quiet escape to the French countryside, made sweeter by the acres of vineyards that produce lauded wines from pinot noir and chardonnay varietals. Discover Burgundy’s finest natural assets, from its picturesque hills and lush river-threaded landscapes to its acclaimed wines.
Evidence of Burgundy’s religious past abounds, with many cathedrals and abbeys scattered across the region. Visit the Abbaye de Fontenay, an ancient complex featuring a medieval church and monk dormitory dating back to 1118. Delve even further back into Burgundy’s past at Bibracte, an archeological site featuring the remains of a Gallic hillfort.
Traverse your way through rolling countryside and explore some of France’s most exquisite vineyards. Burgundy’s vineyards are so well-known that they have even been granted UNESCO World Heritage status. Take a tour of important wine-growing regions such as Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune.
Get closer to nature at the river Loire, a lengthy waterway that flows past peaceful towns and sleepy villages. Catch a ride on a “gabare,” or traditional river boat, or amble along the banks on foot. Along the way, stop at the UNESCO-listed 11th-century church at Charité-sur-Loire, a designated Ville des Livres (City of Books) and browse the literature for sale at the town’s antiquarian book stores.
To get to Burgundy, fly into Dole-Jura Airport, just south of Dijon. Rent a car to explore the region at your own pace. Rail is also a relaxing way to travel and appreciate the beautiful landscapes.
Burgundy is at its peak in the summer when hot and sunny days make it easy to boat, swim, cycle or hike your way through its many terrains. September and October will provide comfortable weather and a unique perspective into the wine harvest season.
Come to experience Burgundy’s rich history, famous winemaking, incredible culture and charming natural setting.
Staff were lovely. Room spot on. Clean, breakfast was plentiful. No dramas at all.
Love the location because it’s in a mall , but we arrived Sunday everything was closed , never mind the restaurant in the hotel offered excellent food
The room was clean but a little tired and our room was next to the lift that was very noisy.
I had an upgrade in a refurbished studio on the 3rd floor and I was very grateful for it. It was very spacious with a small balcony on to the rue de la Liberté and I will book it again next time in Dijon. However, a relative of mine at the same hotel ended up with an old, small and smelly studio ...
