Burgundy is an ideal region for exploration on a relaxed activity holiday, with a wealth of famous towns and villages that are all easily accessible by bike or on foot. From the fertile basin around Auxerre, in the North West, to the limestone escarpment of the Cote d'Or where many of the world's most expensive wines are produced, it is a region synonymous with gastronomy and good living.
This region actually has more chateaux than any other in France but in addition to splendid chateaux, palaces and courts, you'll also find fine traditional and fortified villages, timbered houses, prestigious vineyards (some of the world's best), stunning countryside and picturesque waterways. Of particular note are the Morvan National Park, UNESCO listed Mary Magdelene Basilica in Vezelay, the immaculately preserved 15th century Hotel-Dieu in the walled old-town of Beaune, and the masterpiece of pre-Industrial Revolution engineering that is the Canal de Bourgogne.
