Burgundy Bike Tours

In Vino Veritas

We’ve been biking en Bourgogne for a long time, and for good reason. In French wine’s ancestral home, you’ll bike to the top of Hautes Côtes, sip vintages in the fields from which they grew and spend two nights at Abbaye de la Bussière (the region’s most exclusive hotel). Then, you’ll explore the pleasures of Beaune (our adopted hometown) and its unique relationship with wine. To Burgundian locals, time is measured by the season. For us, it’s by the kilometre, the meal and the vintage.

Watch a video of biking in Burgundy with B&R.

Trip Details

Hotels:
Signature

Signature

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.

Bistro

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.

Hotels

Château André Ziltener, Chambolle-Musigny

Set amid the vines in the tiny village of Chambolle-Musigny, the intimate yet luxurious 18thC Château André Ziltener opened as a hotel in 1993. Tastefully decorated and surrounded by a lush and peaceful garden, the hotel offers only ten quaint and comfortable rooms—meaning that the service is always excellent and we quite often have the place all to ourselves! View hotel website »

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 »

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.
