The name Burgundy conjures up images of fine wines and classic French dishes such as Boeuf Bourguignon and Coq au Vin. Yet, it offers so much more – beautiful touring, glorious châteaux and fascinating towns such as Beaune and Dijon. It is the perfect stop en route to or from Provence or the Côte d’Azur. Dijon Once the capital of the Duchy of Burgundy, Dijon’s old town with its atmospheric, narrow streets is one of the best preserved mediaeval centres in France. You’ll sample some of France’s finest cuisine and wines at one of the many wine bars and see great works by Lotto, Hals and Monet and remains of the lavish court of the Dukes of Burgundy at the impressive Musée des Beaux-Arts, and visit the new ‘Cité de la Gastronomie et du Vin’ museum. Beaune Situated in the middle of France’s Côte d’Or ‘departement’, Beaune is the capital of the Burgundy wine region and is surrounded by some of France’s most celebrated wine villages. At the centre of its cobbled streets is the Hôtel Dieu and Hospices de Beaune, with its inner courtyard and multi-colourful tiled roofs. Vougeot A famous village in the heart of the Grand Cru wine producing countryside between Dijon and Beaune, most of the wine produced here comes from one walled Grand Cru vineyard, Clos de Vougeot, which dates from 1336.
