  • Beautiful Apartment Rental

    "We stayed at the apartment in Beaune for 3 nights. What a gorgeous place! We were delighted to stay there and wish it could have been for a longer time. The apartment is very comfortable and warm. It is decorated very nicely. I felt like we were staying in a castle. I don't think I've ever stayed someplace this nice! The city of Beaune is also very inviting and interesting. JJ was very helpful also in getting us to our next destination since a train strike stopped train travel from Beaune during our stay."

  • Great base, plenty of information

    "We spent two weeks in this cottage to explore the area. After having visited a large number of cottages in France over several years we have never before been supplied with so much good information as to what to do and see. Franck called around twice to make sure everything was OK which was very much appreciated. The cottage was nicely decorated and relaxing and we enjoyed our stay."

  • Comfortable and convenient base for the Cote d'Or

    "We've stayed here twice in the past couple of years, and look forward to returning. Sarah and Ken have created a comfortable home away from home for people who want to enjoy Semur and the wider experience of Bourgogne. Semur is an amazing example of a well preserved medieval city. It's small enough that you can cover it on foot easily, but big enough to have a selection of restaurants, cafes, bakeries, wine shops and even a supermarket. There is a lot to explore. From this location, it's an easy drive or bus/train to Dijon, Beaune and Paris. There are lots of interesting small towns in the region just a few minutes away by car. The house contains a collection of travel information in several languages. WiFi makes it easy to do internet research as necessary. The house is equipped with everything you need for a short or long stay. It's well located for easy access to town. Having access to the private garden and courtyard is an extra plus in the summer for those who like to dine outside. I recommend it heartily."

  • Enchanting Village Home

    "We arrived at the home and right away we were impressed. The home is magnificent with its stone walls, beautiful furnishings, and art work. It is also well equipped and we were very comfortable the entire stay. The village is enchanting and quaint with it's beautiful cathedral, candy factory, and Roman ruins. The people were friendly and we had a fantastic time. I would love to return to this magical place again. Thank you for sharing!"

Burgundy Travel Tips

Burgundy Vacation Rentals in the Heart of the Wine Region

To explore the beauty of Burgundy, fly to one of Paris’s two airports, Charles de Gaulle International Airport or Orly International Airport. From here, take a short internal flight, hire a car or take the train (TGV) from the Gare de Lyon station, situated in the southeast region of Paris. Other, slower trains are available from Paris Bercy station.

Certainly, the best way to really explore the region around Burgundy vacation rentals is by car. Driving in France is straightforward and enjoyable. From Paris, the distance to Dijon, the capital of the Burgundy region, is 163 miles (262 kilometers). The region is blessed with a Mediterranean climate featuring long hot summers, warm falls and clear, cold weather through the winter.

Burgundy villas are Surrounded by Stunning Scenery and Charming Towns

This is an area steeped in history that visitors to Burgundy accommodations will find fascinating. The capital city of Dijon, famous for its mustard, dates from the Roman period. Visitors will enjoy the art works on display at the Musée des Beaux-Arts at the Palais des Ducs et des Etats de Bourgogne. The Abbey Bénigne houses the impressive Museum of Archaeology and to view traditional French interiors, paintings and furniture, the Musée Magnin is an ideal place.

The town of Chablis is world-renowned for its wonderful wine and this charming, typically French town is a great place to visit. It has several wineries, boutiques and unique stores. Like most French towns, there is a weekly market that will delight visitors. Close by is the village of Noyers which is considered to be one of the most charming villages in the region. The architecture of half-timbered houses, tiny hidden squares, cobbled streets and arches make it a wonderful place to explore. Take the river walk to view the old town defenses. During the summer months, the village has many music concerts. From here, visitors will find the town of Montréal an enjoyable stop. This enchanting town sits on a hilltop. It features wonderful 14th-century turreted houses with outside stone steps leading to small secluded courtyards.

From these Burgundy villas, visitors will find themselves within easy reach of some of the most beautiful ancient abbeys and churches, charming houses, medieval villages and towns, and fascinating archaeology in the world.

Sample the World-Renowned Regional Food and Wine of Burgundy

The region is a treat for food lovers, with famous regional dishes such as Escargots a la Bourgogne (snails in a red wine sauce), Boeuf Bourguignon (beef in a red wine sauce) and Coq au Vin (chicken in white wine). Other regional specialties include wild mushrooms, pigeon, boar, venison and a wide variety of fish. Local producers specialize in pâtés, cheeses and sausages. Visitors should visit the local markets to explore the abundance of fresh produce from this area. Pick up a bottle of the locally produced blackcurrant liqueur, cassis, to mix with some regional sparkling wine for a typically French aperitif, known as kir. Another specialty of the region is chocolate which really has to be tasted! The area is famous for its chocolate truffles and pralines.

Probably the most famous export from the region is wine, with labels such as Beaune, Chablis, Gevrey-Chambertin, and Nuits-St-Georges among the most renowned. Scattered around the region are small vineyards, many which welcome visitors for tours, tasting and, of course, to buy a bottle or two direct from the producer.

Burgundy villas are Where a Warm French Welcome Awaits

With Burgundy villas ranging from modern apartments in a converted 12th-century abbey and cozy cottages set in vineyards to a 17th-century farmhouse in the heart of the forest, there is an ideal property to suit any size of family or group of friends. Each property is individual and unique but all have one thing in common; they are all exceptional properties, equipped with everything you may need to make a perfect base for exploring this wonderful region.
