Coming from Dijon, don’t continue on to Beaune, but stop a few kilometers before Savigny-lès-Beaune, at Ladoix-Serrigny. Start your itinerary from the picturesque villages of the Côte de Beaune to the Hautes-Côtes. You’ll finish your tour with a well-deserved aperitif on the square in Savigny-lès-Beaune.
Let’s start our journey in this pretty village, which takes its name from the Ladoix-Serrigny appellation. It’s the first village on the Côte de Beaune. If you miss the signs, the Colline de Corton just to the right will let you know you’ve arrived.
Don’t take your eyes off the Colline de Corton, you’ve reached Aloxe-Corton, its three châteaux and its Grands Crus. We love strolling through this village in autumn, when the colorful vineyards echo in the glazed tiles of the châteaux. Great photos to come.
The Colline de Corton remains our beacon. Continuing our tour of the villages, we arrive in Pernand-Vergelesses. It’s a village that deserves to be cycled through. The hills are a little steep, but the views are well worth the detour.
Leaving the Colline de Corton and its vineyards as far as the eye can see, we head for the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune. First stop: Échevronne. Put on your good shoes and set off to discover the Burgundy countryside. Take your picnic.
The plain is a distant memory when you arrive in Bouilland. This is the kingdom of climbers. The cliffs are incredible and full of rock-climbing spots. For the less daring, a hike will allow you to admire this beautiful landscape of forest and stone.
Are you tempted by rock-climbing but a little nervous at the idea of setting off alone to tackle the cliffs of Bouilland? Akroroc is here to help.
Heading back south to Savigny-lès-Beaune, we stop off in the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune at Bouze-lès-Beaune. Take in the details of the houses in the village center. And when you’re out and about, try to spot the cabottes around the village.
After this brief overview, you’ll soon realize that there’s not just one Burgundy, but many. Allow yourself to make discoveries, stroll through unspoilt countryside and be surprised by encounters with winegrowers, cultural gems and fine products to taste. There’s so much more to experience in the Pays Beaunois!
