Hotels

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 »

Activity Level

Easygoing to Moderate

This trip is rated as Moderate and we can offer both biking and walking routes to alternate between relatively flat to some hilly routes. In 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.
