Dijon & The Burgundy Canal

Burgundy 9 nights Prices on request

Travelling by train from London, this holiday combines wine-tasting in some of the region’s most renowned vineyards, exceptional Burgundian cuisine, elegant chateaux and picturesque traditional villages. Beginning in Paris and finishing with a couple of nights in Dijon, the historic capital of the Burgundy region and a fascinating city in its own right, this is perhaps the ultimate holiday for connoisseurs of French cuisine. Wine-lovers will particularly enjoy the tastings in the wine cellars of a renowned Chablis domaine and a private champagne tasting at Maison Alexandre Bonnet followed by lunch with the Countess. However, excursions also include the village of Flavigny sur Ozerain – setting for the film Chocolat – the grand Chateau d’Ancy-le-Franc, the UNESCO Abbey de Fontenay, and a tour of the battlefield of Alesia where the final conflict between the Gauls and Romans took place in 52BC. For those who feel the need to work up an appetite, a towpath follows almost the entire route of the canal, providing ample opportunities for walking or taking a spin on one of the bicycles on board. Disembarking the boat, you will continue by train to nearby Dijon, the capital of the region, for a two night stay.

Ask about extending your holiday by a couple of days, perhaps continuing to historic Beaune or Lyon, gastronomic capital of France.
