Guide of Burgundy - Tourism, holidays & weekends in Burgundy

Appreciated by gourmets and wine lovers, Burgundy also delights lovers of nature and old buildings. Known worldwide for its prestigious vineyards and its authentic cuisine, this beautiful rural region will delight you with its peaceful hedged farmland, expanses of vineyards, mysterious forests, rivers and lakes. There's no better way to recharge your batteries than a walk in the Morvan Regional Nature Park, or a bike ride along the pleasant Saône-et-Loire Greenway. And to relax in green surroundings while enjoying the water, head for the beautiful Lake Settons in Nièvre.

Built heritage is also in evidence all over Burgundy, for example the castles of Ancy-le-Franc, Bazoches, Berzé-le-Châtel, Cormatin and Tanlay, the abbeys of Cluny, Fontenay and Pontigny, the Cities of Art and History of Auxerre, Chalon-sur-Saône, Dijon, La Charité-sur-Loire and Nevers, the famous Hospices of Beaune and the majestic basilica in Vézelay, a World Heritage Site. Equally unmissable are the incredible site of Guédelon, an awe-inspiring medieval construction project that's unique in Europe, Mount Beuvray with its marvellous views and its Bibracte Museum, and the site of Alésia with its Gallo-Roman remains and MuséoParc. Boasting a rich, diverse heritage, Burgundy clearly has many delights in store for visitors!
