Self-drive: Burgundy can be reached in about 6 hours' from Calais, with motorway all the way via Reims, Troyes and Dijon. If approaching from the west, we would advise one overnight stop in Normandy after an early morning crossing from Portsmouth or it can be reached for the first night if you arrive in France after an overnight crossing.
By Air: Lyon or Geneva are the closest airports served from the UK, then allow about two hours' from Lyon and a little longer from Geneva.
By Rail: Take Eurostar to Lille and then TGV to Dijon, hire a car and explore the region.
We are open Mon 8.30-17.30, Tue-Fri 9-17.30 Sat 9.30-16.00.
