France: Burgundy

Beaune Vineyards Walk

  • Lovingly restored C18 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 mediaeval villages
  • Sun-drenched wine estates and prestigious appellations

This seven-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 mediaeval Beaune, whose walled old town houses the immaculately preserved C15 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 C13 cellars and enjoy lunch in a selection of mediaeval 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 1 Arrive in Beaune

Free time to discover this lovely city and marvel at the multicoloured roofs of the 15th-century Hospices de Beaune. Overnight at the Hotel le Cep with the choice of Beaune's restaurants for dinner (pay locally). (Staying at Hotel le Cep, Breakfast only)

Day 2 Transfer to Montagny-les-Beaune

In the afternoon, we take you to the Hotel le Clos, a lovingly restored C18 hotel, a former farmhouse in Montagny-les-Beaune, in time for your first gastronomic dinner at a local restaurant. (Staying at Hotel le Clos, Breakfast in hotel, evening meal in local restaurant)

Day 3 Montagny-les-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. Here you'll find your hotel, a beautifully restored C18 former winery, with an extremely warm welcome from the owners, Paul and his wife Jolanta. (Staying at Les Deux Chevres, Breakfast in hotel, evening meal in local restaurant)

Day 4 At Gevrey-Chambertin

Options today include taking the train to Dijon or Beaune. In Dijon stroll the history-filled streets and alleyways with C12-C15 timbered houses to see the Church of Notre Dame, cathedral and the grand Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy. In Beaune marvel at the multi-coloured roofs of the C15 Hospices de Beaune. (Staying at Les Deux Chevres, Breakfast in hotel, evening meal in local restaurant)

Day 5 Gevrey-Chambertin to Vosne-Romanee 12km/7.5mi/3.5hr

Leave the vines behind today and head up into the woods where you'll follow an old disused railway track. 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. From here it's just a short distance to Vosne-Romanee where your 4 Star hotel and restaurant await. (Staying at Le Richebourg, Half Board)

Day 6 At Vosne-Romanee

There are two options for your 'rest day'. You could walk up through the woods to a secluded chateau in the hills, behind the vineyards of Vosne-Romanee - here you have the opportunity to learn about truffle hunting in the chateau grounds with Thierry, his son Yann and their specially trained dog Elfe (Thursday to Monday only). Alternatively take a stroll through the vines to the world-famous mediaeval town of Nuits-St-Georges. Explore the town and enjoy lunch here, then maybe a spot of wine tasting in one of the many local caves. (Staying at Le Richebourg, Half Board)

Day 7 Vosne-Romanee to Montagny-les-Beaune 16km/10mi/5.5hr or 22km/14mi/6.5hr

A 25-minute transfer takes you to Pernand-Vergelesses to follow vineyard tracks past the Hill of Corton, once owned by Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne. Then it's on to mediaeval Savigny-les-Beaune for a morning coffee next to the impressive chateau, which houses a collection of vintage cars, motorbikes and planes. Walking up through woodland, you emerge above Beaune with spectacular views over the town and its surrounds. Descending into the vineyards you can visit the Parc de la Bouzaise or Beaune before continuing on to the hotel. (Staying at Hotel le Clos, Breakfast in hotel, evening meal in local restaurant)

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 C16 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!
