In the region
No trip to Beaune would be complete without a visit to the Hôtel Dieu, the Palace of the Dukes, the Belfry, and the Basilica. But you should also explore its cellars and alleyways, which paint a beautiful fresco of this fascinating town. Food is very important. I recommend you buy your cheese from Hess on Place Carnot, your mustard from the Fallot mustard plant (after visiting it). And for your vegetables, don’t miss the Saturday morning market at Place des Halles, in front of the Hôtel Dieu.
On foot, you can also easily stroll through the vineyards and hills and see the colours of the vines and how the grapes are coming along.
I can give you several addresses for bicycle rentals. You can follow several routes through the vineyards, from village to village (Mersault, Pommard, Auxey Duresses), or you can also enjoy rides on the bicycle paths alongside the canal or on the old train tracks, specially redesigned for bicycle tourism.
All of Burgundy is open to you: its Cistercian Abbeys (Cluny, Cîteaux, Fontenay), its Chateaux (La Rochepot, Cormatin, Sully, etc.), Clos Vougeot, etc.
By train or by car: The apartments are a 15-minute walk from the station. Dijon, the capital of Burgundy, is half an hour away by train or car and makes a wonderful destination for a pleasant day-trip. And at Nuits Saint Georges, 20 minutes by train, you can enjoy another treasure: its small fruits, jams and syrups at the "Ferme des Fruits Rouges".
