The Burgundy region is one of the great historic regions of France; indeed, in the Middle Ages, Burgundy was the great dukedom which rivalled in power and prestige with the kingdom of France itself. The countryside is full of delightful little villages and towns such as Montreal, Avallon and Auxerre.
This region is famous for its romanesque churches and religious sites including the remarkable Abbey of Vezelay and great cathedrals of Auxerre and Sens. In the Yonne department (89) you will discover wonderful food and wine. Visit the caves of Chablis and Irancy, try the cheeses and regional specialities such as la gougeres (little cheese chou pastry puffs), boeuf bourguignon, coq au vin and escargot just for starters!
Enjoy a boat trip on the canals or cycling through the undulating corn and sunflower fields. Discover the farmers markets all year round and antique fairs in the warmer months. We wish you a wonderful stay here!
