BURGUNDY gastronomy

  • On the 3rd day, you will pick up a rental car at the closest agency from the hotel and drive 3 hours to Burgundy. We will recommend a gorgeous castle on your way.
  • In Burgundy, you will reside for 3 nights in a beautiful B&B house owned by a wine maker family and located in one of Burgundy most famous wine towns. Situated in the heart of Burgundy, near Beaune, this is the perfect place to learn about the local wines.

  • We will provide you with all detailed itineraries to discover the authentic and charmful Burgundy. This region is much more than the vineyards: winding roads leading to tiny timeless villages - some of them "Most Beautiful Villages of France" - will give you a real feel for this region. Taste some local cheeses, the "Epoisse" at the cheese factory or stroll around Beaune from cellars to ramparts.
