Burgundy Walking

  • Take a guided tour of the magnificent Basilique Sainte-Marie-Madeleine with a local Benedictine Monk.

Feature Hotels

L’Hôtel de Beaune

This 19thC hotel is ideally located within steps of the shops and restaurants in the historic centre of Beaune. The courtyard is a great spot to unwind over a glass of wine, and the terrace leads to an incredible view over the city’s medieval rooftops. L’Hôtel is very intimate offering only 10 rooms. We’ll take over the whole place and you’ll feel like you are right at home. View hotel website »

Bastion Ste. Anne, Beaune

Upon turning the key to the Bastion’s outer wall (yes, it has its own stone wall) one feels as though they have entered into a magical fairy-tale setting. Dating back to 1637, the Bastion is an official historic monument that has been transformed into an idyllic retreat. Throughout the house ancient stone walls are juxtaposed with clean contemporary design. Its walled courtyard houses a gorgeous garden that is private just to you! View hotel website »

Abbaye de la Bussière, La Bussière-sur-Ouche

This boutique hotel is a medieval castle that was once a Cistercian monastery and later a hunting lodge. Now the hotel offers luxurious accommodations within an 18-acre park. It was entirely refurbished prior to its opening, and joined Relais & Châteaux in 2007—in 2009, Emmanuel Hébrard, the young talented chef of the property’s restaurant, earned his first Michelin star.

Our Trip Designers are a special breed. Part guru, part collaborator, part mind-reader, they have the full breadth of B&R resources at their fingertips. Extraordinarily well-travelled, they’ve been there, lived there, done it, planned it and eaten it, too. With a combined geographic knowledge that’s nothing short of staggering, they can save you literally years of research. Above all, they’re incredibly good at what they do.
