France: Burgundy

Beaune Vineyards Cycling

  • Lovingly restored 18th century hotels, one with a pool, and fine gastronomic cuisine
  • Varied cycling: vineyard tracks, country lanes, waterside paths and greenways
  • Authentic medieval chateaux and traditional unspoilt villages
  • Sun-drenched wine estates; taste prestigious appellations
  • Striking architecture and numerous museums in history-filled Dijon
  • Picturesque Canal de Bourgogne; colourful meadows; shady woodland
  • Based on our popular 6 night, Gastronomic Burgundy Cycling

Uncover the wonderful flavours of Burgundy on this seven night gastronomic cycling holiday. Long established as one of France's finest wine regions, the Cote d'Or is home to historic Beaune and famed Nuits-Saint-Georges. Here, culture and tradition thrive amid some of the world's most prestigious vineyards, which are now collectively recognised as an UNESCO World Heritage Site. To the north, past numerous medieval chateaux, lies Dijon with its rich blend of architecture and the magnificent palace of the Dukes of Burgundy. A short distance away you'll find the tranquil Canal de Bourgogne, meandering along the Ouche River valley up to the fortified 15th century Chateauneuf-en-Auxois, which sits fairytale-like on a hilltop and is listed as one of France's most beautiful villages.

Cycle along quiet lanes, vineyard tracks, tranquil waterside paths and smooth greenways, enjoying views of majestic vine-clad hills, fields of shimmering wheat and waterways where grey herons stalk fish. Each day discover opportunities to sample fine wines and visit esteemed producers before stopping for lunch in unspoilt villages set against a backdrop of swaying vines and ancient oak forest.

In a region known for its epicurean finesse, you really will enjoy fine dining on this holiday. You'll savour dishes such as Oeufs en Meurette, Poulet de Bresse a la Creme, Perche aux Noix and of course exquisite cheeses like the pungent Epoisses de Bourgogne, all washed down with the region's incredible Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. You'll stay in historic hotels including an elegantly renovated farm with beautiful gardens, a lovingly restored winery and a marvellous 18th century chateau with a pool and eight hectares of carefully tended grounds.

Day 1: Arrive in Beaune

Visit the renowned Hospices de Beaune or simply wander Beaune's medieval streets. Overnight at the Hotel le Cep with the choice of Beaune's restaurants for dinner (pay locally).
You stay at the Hotel le Cep (breakfast included)

Day 2: Beaune-Montagny-les-Beaune

In the afternoon, we transfer you to the Hotel le Clos, a beautifully restored 18th century farmhouse just outside the city. Relax and freshen up before your first gastronomic dinner.
You stay at the Hotel le Clos (breakfast at the hotel, evening meal at a local restaurant)

Day 3: Montagny-les-Beaune to Gevrey-Chambertin 42km/26.5mi or 45km/28.5mi

This morning, perhaps pay a visit to the lovely 18th century chateau at Pommard before continuing past pretty Aloxe-Corton and Ladoix-Serrigny. You might like to take a short detour to visit Savigny-les- Beaune too, with its collection of vintage cars, motorbikes and planes, or to spend some time in the Parc de la Bouzaise in Beaune before lunch in the world-famous Nuits-Saint-Georges. In the afternoon your route leads you on to the 16th century Chateau du Clos de Vougeot before the final stretch through Vosne-Romanee (home of the world's most expensive wine), Chambolle-Musigny and Morey-Saint-Denis to your hotel, a lovingly restored former winery in Gevrey-Chambertin.
You stay at Les Deux Chevres (breakfast at the hotel and evening meal either in the hotel or a local restaurant)

Day 4: At Gevrey-Chambertin

Today, visit the ancient city of Dijon, just 8 minutes away by rail. Here see the Church of Notre Dame, the 12th century-15th century timbered houses, the cathedral with its 1,000-year-old crypt, and the Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy along with a host of museums and other sights.
You stay at Les Deux Chevres (breakfast at the hotel and evening meal either in the hotel or a local restaurant)

Day 5: Gevrey-Chambertin to Sainte-Sabine 54km/34mi

Leave the vines behind and cycle up through the Combe Lavaux - Jean Roland nature reserve to appreciate stunning views across meadows to the Ouche River valley. Then it's freewheeling all the way along quiet country lanes, past fields of wheat and rapeseed to Fleurey- Ouche and the famous Canal de Bourgogne. Here you'll experience gentle pedalling along towpaths and greenways between the canal and the peaceful River Ouche. Lunch can be enjoyed with a picnic by the water's edge in any number of sleepy riverside villages, at a cafe-restaurant in a former lockkeeper's cottage, or even before or after a visit to the Chateau de Barbirey with its superb gardens. The ride ends at the 18th century Chateau Sainte-Sabine, where you can stroll in the gardens then sit on the terrace savouring an aperitif before dinner.
You stay at the Chateau Sainte Sabine (breakfast and evening meal)

Day 6: At Sainte-Sabine 28km/17.5mi

Today's route is a lovely circular ride taking in two famous Burgundy chateaux. The first is the Chateau de Chateauneuf in the incredible mediaeval village of Chateauneuf-en-Auxois. Clearly visible from the hotel in Sainte-Sabine, Chateauneuf-en-Auxois is perched high on the hilltop with its 15th century fortress and 12th century keep. Then, cycling down country lanes, you come to the village of Commarin with its magnificent moated chateau, a site of importance since the early 13th century.
You stay at the Chateau Sainte Sabine (breakfast and evening meal)

Day 7: Sainte-Sabine to Montagny-les-Beaune 41km/26mi

Pass countryside and quiet farming villages to the ancient town of Bligny-sur-Ouche with its 12th century church, 15th century tower and twelve water mills. After crossing the River Ouche, a short climb leads you to Montceau-et-Echarnant, next to which lies the tiny Templar church of Saint John the Baptist, where the ground is paved with the gravestones of Templar Knights. From here it's downhill through meadows and woodland to the village of Nantoux, and then back out into the vines. The adventurous can take one last climb to enjoy spectacular views from the Hautes-Cotes de Beaune but both roads lead back to delightful Pommard where final wine tastings can be had at the chateau before heading back to the hotel along vineyard tracks for your final gastronomic meal at a Michelin-starred restaurant.
You stay at the Hotel le Clos (breakfast at the hotel, evening meal at a local restaurant)

Day 8: Leave Montagny-les-Beaune

Please note that cycling helmets are compulsory in France for children under 12. As we are unable to provide these, we strongly recommend that you bring your own.

Hotel le Cep, Beaune

Hair dryer iconNEARBY:

In the centre of mediaeval Beaune, Burgundy's traditional wine capital, and located just minutes from the famous Hospices de Beaune and Notre-Dame Basilica, is Hotel Le Cep. The hotel has become an institution in the town, due in no small part to its top notch service and authentic decor consisting of wooden beams, fine fabrics and antique furnishings. Additionally, a private garage and parking, French garden, two 16th century historical courtyards, bar, breakfast cellar and period sitting rooms, help to make Le Cep rather unique.

Right next door lies the gastronomic, Michelin starred restaurant Loiseau des Vignes but in Beaune there are restaurants offering fine dining around every corner!
