Gastronomic Burgundy Walking - Short Break

  • Lovingly restored 18th century hotels, each with its own unique history
  • Fine, gastronomic menus featuring regionally sourced ingredients
  • Varied walking on vineyard tracks,hilltop trails and woodland paths
  • Traditional Burgundy chateaux and unspoilt medieval villages
  • Sun-drenched wine estates and prestigious appellations
  • Based on our popular 6 night, Gastronomic Burgundy Walking

This four night gastronomic walking holiday invites you to discover the essence of Burgundy; a place where centuries-old culture and practices meet the modern world in a region world famous for its traditions of wine and gastronomy. Here you'll find medieval Beaune, whose walled old town houses the immaculately preserved 15th century Hospices de Beaune, picture-perfect Meursault and a host of authentic Burgundy chateaux; this region has more chateaux than any other in France. To the north, past the Combe Lavaux - Jean Roland Nature Reserve, where wildflowers grow and peregrine falcons and eagles nest, lies the regional capital of Dijon. The city boasts a rich blend of architecture alongside the magnificent palace of the Valois Dukes, now home to the Museum of Fine Art.

The walks provide a wonderful balance of quiet country lanes, vineyard tracks and woodland trails taking in sleepy, unspoilt villages, majestic vine-clad hills and ancient oak forest. Sample fine wines in 13th century cellars and enjoy lunch in a selection of medieval towns including world-renowned Nuits-St-Georges. Walk the historic streets of Dijon and hunt for truffles with Yann and his dog Elfe in the grounds of a secluded chateau.

This area is popular with gastronomes and for good reason! You can look forward to fine dining on Filet de Boeuf flambe a la sauce creme de truffe or Sandre aux echalotes confites et au Pommard and sampling some of the regional cheeses - Brillat Savarin and Epoisses - accompanied by the region's incredible Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. You'll stay in wonderful hotels including an elegantly renovated farmhouse with picturesque gardens, a lovingly restored former winery and a modern 4 star hotel complete with spa facilities.

Day 2: Beaune to Gevrey-Chambertin 14km/9mi/3.5hr

This morning we'll take you to the start of your walk. You'll begin by crossing over the northern tip of the limestone escarpment of the Cote-d'Or to gain wonderful views across the plain as you descend to the village of Chenove. From here turn south and wind your way along the Chemin des Grand Crus, passing the vineyards of Couchey and Fixin and continuing along to the famous wine village of Gevrey-Chambertin.

Wind through shady, protected woodland before emerging back into the sun-soaked vines behind tranquil Morey-St-Denis, a good place to enjoy a coffee break. Continue on through the sleepy village of Chambolle-Musigny to Vougeot and visit the historic Chateau du Clos de Vougeot which produces one of the world's most celebrated Grand Cru wines.
