Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Beaune

Uncontested wine capital of Burgundy and one of the smallest exquisite French town. Its Hotel-Dieu is famous all over the world!

Day 2: Beaune - Côte de Nuits (53 km / 33 miles)

Excursion devoted to discovering the famous area "Côte de Nuits" known for the "Grands Vins de Bourgogne" and more especially the red wines: Chambolle Musigny, Vosne Romanée and the most expensive wine of Burgundy: Romanée Conti. You will also appreciate some famous sights such as the Château du Clos de Vougeot or the château of Gevrey Chambertin.

Day 3: Beaune – Châteauneuf (38 km / 23 miles)

Still traveling through the famous Burgundy vineyards, you will reach the Ouche Valley and cross the Canal de Bourgogne to arrive in Châteauneuf, a picturesque old village perched on high, protected by its château dating back to the 12th and 15th centuries!

Day 4: Châteauneuf – Autun (53 km / 33 miles)

A country stage via the town of Arnay le Duc and its charming medieval centre before joining Autun. Napoléon Bonaparte has certainly dreamt there about imperial glory in front of its roman vestiges: The Arroux Gate, the St André Gate and the Theatre.

Day 5: Autun – Beaune (63 km / 39 miles)

Today's journey takes you back to the vineyards via the Renaissance Château de Sully and the pretty town Nolay: a charming village which has preserved its 14th-century covered market, and bordered by the “Hautes Côtes de Beaune” vineyards. Continue via the Château de La Rochepot (a magnificent fortress with glazed tile roofs), and the “Côte de Beaune”, famous for its prestigious white wines such as Meursault, Puligny Montrachet, Chassagne Montrachet, etc … a last taste of sheer Burgundy delight!

Departure after the end of the stage, please contact the office if you would like an extra night in Beaune.
