  • Tailor-made authentic hotel holidays to Burgundy

    France Burgundy
    Luxury holidays to Burgundy
    Burgundy is famous throughout France as being a region rich in wine and gastronomy as well as in history and art. The best known area of Burgundy is that of the Cote d`Or and the Cote de Beaune located close to Beaune with its villages whose names are those of some of the most famous wines; Gevrey Chambertin, Nuits St Georges, Pommard, Meursault and Montrachet. Beaune itself, deserves a visit with its enchanting 15th Century Hotel Dieu and wine museum. While on holiday in Burgundy you will find that almost everywhere there are offers of wine tastings and direct sales. This area of eastern France is all too often visited just en route from the north to the south, but we would urge you to linger a little longer and enjoy a longer holiday in Burgundy to explore the region in detail.

    A self-drive touring holiday is an excellent way to explore Burgundy, offering the chance to discover the vineyards of northern France;  to combine a stay here with one in Beaujolais; to travel further south en route to Provence; or to enjoy a tour around the whole of France

    Local highlights

    Cultural highlights include Burgundy wines and marcs, local wine festivals, the Beaujolais vineyards, and the Romanesque architecture. 

    Travel arrangements

    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.
