A weekend or holiday in and around Beaune: visits to enjoy with your dog
Dog-friendly tours of Beaune and Burgundy’s villages, with your dog on a lead
You can easily walk through our beautiful historic centres and enjoy the different villages of the Côte de Beaune. Beaune and its ramparts provide a perfect walk to enjoy the panoramas of the Hospices and Wine Houses. The village of Meursault with its quiet little streets is a haven of peace for your four-legged companion. In Savigny-lès-Beaune, you can make the most of the little booklet "Si Savigny m’était conté" to discover the village. Not to mention Chagny, where you can enjoy wonderful walks along the Canal. And if you enjoy longer hikes, Santenay with its Three Cross Mountain is an ideal place.
Nolay and its medieval covered market and all the other villages of Pays Beaunois also offer beautiful walks or long hikes so your dog can stretch its paws.
And if you enjoy walking along the water's edge, take your dog for a walk in Parc de la Bouzaize in Beaune, at Lac de Panthier or along the Étangs d’or (Golden Ponds) in Merceuil.
Book a restaurant for a Burgundy dinner or lunch with your dog
If your dog is a German shepherd (but not only that), you can walk in the footsteps of Bourvil and de Funès. Head for Meursault, at the location where they filmed La Grande Vadrouille.
For summer evenings, you can take your dog to the night-time theatre in Nolay and discover an unfamiliar face of this beautiful Burgundy village
. And if, like you, your dog prefers to relax quietly while enjoying the scenery, a little tour by Visiotrain
is a great way to discover the town of Beaune from the comfort of your seat
Does your dog love to travel by car, motorcycle or in a convertible
, nose to the wind? Then head for Château de Savigny-lès-Beaune
. Its huge collection of motorised vehicles is a dream: from Gilera motorcycles to fighter jets via Abarths, formidable racing cars from the 20th century
And if you want to perfect your knowledge of Burgundy wines and the unique “terroirs” of our beautiful region, visit the Maison des Climats, in the premises of the Porte Marie de Bourgogne Tourist Office in Beaune
Visits to enjoy with your dog in Burgundy, a little further afield
If your dog is medium-sized (or smaller), you can also follow the guide and discover how viticulture has evolved at the interactive museum, the Imaginarium.
Visits to Beaune and its surrounding areas if your dog fits in a bag
The exceptional Hôtel Dieu Museum

The cradle of Burgundy wines and seat of the Brotherhood of Knights of the Tastevin, Clos de Vougeot delivers up all its secrets
(well, almost ;) ) .
A 16th-century jewel with its beautiful murals, Château d'Ancy le Franc
