Beaune Luxury Travel
This is the ultimate getaway to the heart of Burgundy. You stay at an intimate pied-à-terre in the historic town of Beaune—a truly special property, owned by the Butterfields. From this ideal homebase, explore the bucolic surroundings at your leisure. Easygoing biking through famous winemaking towns, walks through the vineyards and enjoy tastings either in the fields or the winemaker’s cave. This Burgundy experience offers a rich immersion into this magical region.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

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 »
We can offer both biking and walking routes, and general, we follow small, quiet roads through vineyards, farmland, forests and charming towns. Burgundy has been credited with having the best biking and walking, not just in France, but the world. This is no small claim, but it has been asserted time and again by B&R guides and travellers alike.
