Burgundy Self-Guided Bike Tour

Burgundy by Bike

On this Burgundy self-guided bike tour, we combine three hallmarks of any B&R itinerary— excellent hotels, beautiful riding routes and superb custom-fitted bicycles—with the freedom of pacing each day just the way you like. We arrange some can’t-miss meals and events, transfer your bags and equip you with all the information for the ultimate trip. A Century Ride at dawn or a leisurely afternoon loop; sandwiches from a boulangerie or a gourmet lunch; a walking tour of historic Beaune or a dip in the pool; the choices are all yours.

Trip Details

Hotels:

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!

Hotel le Cep, Beaune

A collection of noble townhouses dating from the Middle Ages, Hôtel Le Cep is ideally located within steps of the historic centre of Beaune. The courtyard is a great spot to unwind over a glass of wine, and the tower staircase leads to an incredible view over the city’s medieval rooftops. Le Cep also has earned the distinction of being the hotel with which B&R has worked the longest. 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.

MORE INFORMATION

Activity Level

Enthusiast

The trip alternates relatively flat routes with some hilly rides. Distances range from 27 to 44 km (17 to 27 mi.) with options every day, including the Century Ride of 100 km. In general, we follow small, quiet roads through vineyards, farmland, forests and charming towns. Burgundy has been credited with having the best biking, not just in France, but the world. This is no small claim, but it has been asserted time and again by both B&R guides and travellers.

Accolades

“Our trip was the experience of a lifetime. The directions, materials and equipment were all beyond perfect, the B&R staff always went above and beyond, and the hotels we stayed at were highlights at the end of beautiful days. Now, I want to take my husband and my kids, and can't decide which one!”
