All about the Walking Beaune’s Grand Cru Vineyards – short break.

This four night walking holiday invites you to discover the essence of Burgundy; a place where centuries-old culture and practices meet the modern world in a region world famous for its traditions of wine and gastronomy. Here you’ll find medieval Beaune, whose walled old town houses the immaculately preserved 15th century Hospices de Beaune, picture-perfect Meursault and a host of authentic Burgundy chateaux; this region has more chateaux than any other in France. To the north, past the Combe Lavaux – Jean Roland Nature Reserve, where wildflowers grow and peregrine falcons and eagles nest, lies the regional capital of Dijon. The city boasts a rich blend of architecture alongside the magnificent palace of the Valois Dukes, now home to the Museum of Fine Art.
The walks provide a wonderful balance of quiet country lanes, vineyard tracks and woodland trails taking in sleepy, unspoilt villages, majestic vine-clad hills and ancient oak forest. Sample fine wines in 13th century cellars and enjoy lunch in a selection of medieval towns.
This area is popular with gastronomes and for good reason! You’ll stay in wonderful hotels including an elegantly renovated farmhouse with picturesque gardens, a lovingly restored former winery and a modern 4 star hotel complete with spa facilities.

  1. Day 1 Day 1: Arrive in Beaune

    Take time to discover this lovely city and marvel at the multi-coloured roofs of the 15th-century Hospices de Beaune just two minutes from your hotel.

  2. Day 2 Day 2: Beaune to Gevrey-Chambertin 14km/9mi

    Leave the vines behind today and head up into the woods where you’ll follow an old disused railway track. Wind through shady, protected woodland before emerging back into the sun-soaked vines behind tranquil Morey-St-Denis, a good place to enjoy a coffee break. Continue on through the sleepy village of Chambolle-Musigny to Vougeot and visit the historic Chateau du Clos de Vougeot which produces one of the world’s most celebrated Grand Cru wines.

  3. Day 3 Day 3: Gevrey-Chambertin to Vosne-Romanee 12km/7.5mi

  4. Day 4 Day 4: Vosne-Romanee to Montagny-les-Beaune

    A 25-minute transfer takes you to Pernand-Vergelesses to follow vineyard tracks past the Hill of Corton, once owned by Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne. Then it’s on to medieval Savigny-les-Beaune for a morning coffee next to the impressive chateau, which houses a collection of vintage cars, motorbikes and planes. Walking up through woodland, you emerge above Beaune with spectacular views over the town and its surrounds. Descending into the vineyards you can visit the Parc de la Bouzaise or Beaune before continuing on to the hotel.
