Burgundy Cycling 9 Days
Like a fine aged wine, savour Burgundy slowly, with time for its subtleties to penetrate. Great art, gastronomic food, and a history fermented with religion and royalty are your first tastes. Sip again and find white cows dotting green pastures embraced by hedgerows, and villages where you are greeted with a wave and friendly calls of “Bonne Route!” Self-guided cycling is the ultimate way to discover Burgundy.

Hôtel des Remparts, Beaune
Situated inside the historic remparts of Beaune (hence the name), close to restaurants and cafes, this 17th century building was renovated into a traditional 3-star hotel, preserving the charm of the ancient mansion, with modern comforts.

Hôtel de la Poste et du Lion D'Or, Vézelay
This former post office has been renovated into a 3-star hotel. The rooms have great views and the hotel restaurant has a good reputation among guests.
