Vacation in Burgundy
A powerful seat of dukedom for many centuries, the affluence and prestige of Burgundy can be seen in the towns and villages across the region, and hundreds of beautiful churches testify to the influence this historic place has held in French history. Today, it remains a prosperous and more peaceful place, with an enviable culinary culture and plenty of fine wine to share.
No vacation in Burgundy would be complete without partaking in the region’s wonderful food and wine. Sublime Pinot Noir and elegant Chardonnay grapes are picked in Unesco World Heritage vineyards of Chablis, Mâcon and Beaune making for an exceptional accompaniment to classic local dishes like Boeuf bourguignon and Coq au vin.
The natural world flourishes here, with the 1000 square mile fauna-rich Morvan National Park holding clear lakes to fish, boat and swim, and miles of trails and paths to walk and ride. There are 1,000 miles of navigable canals and rivers in the region too, should you wish to do your wandering upon the water, taking in the bucolic landscape by boat.
For more urbane pursuits, the historic city of Dijon will whet the palate for further soujorns to see charming old towns like Beaune, Vézelay, Avallon and many others. There are monastic churches and medieval cathedrals, museums of art and impressive architecture at every turn as you take in stories from ancient Rome to the renaissance.
