Your stay in Burgundy

Day 1
Welcome and installation in the guest house, take possession of the premises and marvel at the environment of the site and the serenity that emanates from the walls. Burgundy is yours to discover, and all you have to do is let go.
Evening arrives and your dinner is planned in one of the many restaurants in the area: Le Bouzeron in Bouzeron is highly recommended.

Day 2
Chalon sur Saône market, visit to the Cathédrale Saint Vincent, lunch in one of the many restaurants in the heart of the old town, visit to the Musée Niepce, and return to your charming gîte in the middle of the Mercurey vineyards for a few hours' well-deserved rest. Dinner 4 km away at La Garenne restaurant, accompanied by a delicious Pouilly-Fuissé from Domaine de la Garenne of course!

Day 3
Departure for the Louhans market: the medieval town with its 157 arcades and its traditional Monday morning market, listed as one of the most beautiful in France (food and poultry: the famous Bresse chicken!), a picturesque and lively journey through Bresse Bourguignonne. Lunch on site, with a tasting of the famous local calf's head. Return to your gîte in Mercurey for an afternoon visit/tasting at Château de Chamirey, one of the jewels in the crown of the Mercurey Appellation: visit the cellars, learn about the terroirs, taste the wines of the 5 family estates: an immersion in the land of wine. In the evening, enjoy a pleasant dinner at the Maison du Clos du Roi after stopping by "la Marmite de Caro" to select some fine dishes, or calling on Chef Tomas to create a home-cooked meal with subtle, delicate aromas and tastes. Another fine day in Burgundy draws to a close...

Day 4
What if the day was destined for idleness in your gîte la Maison du Clos du Roi, reading, strolling between vineyards and calvaries: a whole day to discover Mercurey and its surroundings and dine at the Table d'Hôtes du Château de Chamirey accompanied by fine nectars with the flavors of the Côte Chalonnaise and its Burgundian secrets. Dinner will take place at the Auberge du Vieux Vigneron in Corpeau, where you can indulge in an impressive selection of wines! Moderate carbon footprint for these few car-free hours!

Day 5
My heart sways between north and south: it's Dijon or Mâcon, and it only takes about 40 minutes to drive to either of these beautiful Burgundy capitals. The city center with its cobbled streets will seduce you, and you'll enjoy following in the footsteps of the Owl in Dijon, or chilling out on a terrace at the Maison de Bois in Mâcon. After this "urban" escapade, there's nothing like returning to your calm and serene accommodation in the heart of the vineyards to recharge your batteries before heading off for dinner at Lameloise in Chagny (7 km), the *** Michelin restaurant voted best in the world!

Day 6
Today, it's off to Beaune and its famous hospices, its wine museum and, of course, the chance to explore this pretty little town on the doorstep of some of the world's greatest vineyards on foot! Don't miss lunch at "Les Cocottes", or if you're feeling festive, settle in for a gourmet lunch at Hostellerie de Levernois, just a stone's throw from Beaune's historic center.

Day 7
A visit to Southern Burgundy would not be complete without a visit to Cluny, and its Abbey founded in 910, which from the following century enjoyed an exceptional influence that spread throughout Christian Europe. En route, you can stop to discover the "Château de Cormatin" and its unexpected labyrinth of greenery. Along the way, you'll discover one of Burgundy's most beautiful itineraries, as you join Tournus and pass through Chapaize. So don't wait any longer and get in your car...

Day 8
Fairy tales and vacations always come to an end, so to make this one a happy and memorable one, we invite you to take your time, relax and enjoy your gîte and its sumptuous view over the Côte Chalonnaise vineyards and its fine wines. Before you head home, don't forget to leave your generous and heartfelt comments on our website or in our guestbook.
