Day 1 - Friday: Day out in and around Beaune

It’s time to wake up and have a hearty breakfast, because this morning we’re off for a walk in the Etangs d’Or. What better way to recharge your batteries than to stroll along the water in the wake of wildlife. Take time toobserve the ballet of dragonflies and their translucent, incessantly beating wings, local and visiting birds , insects, amphibians, fish, hares and deer. Laze in the sun on a wooden pontoon before heading back to Beaune.

Discovering the mysteries of the Climats de Bourgogne

We meet at the Cité des Climats et Vins de Bourgogne, a multi-award-winning building made from bio-sourced materials, including hemp concrete, and local geosourced materials, such as Comblanchien and Corton stone. You’re eager to learn more about Burgundy wines. You’ve booked a tasting workshop, then on the 4th floor atBar les Accords, you choose your wine and your board.

Don’t forget to take advantage of the 3 panoramic terraces overlooking 10 hectares of landscaped parkland with a view of the Côte de Beaune vineyards. A quiet lane takes you to the town center, and if your feet get tired, an electric shuttle will take you there.

Enjoy a sweet or savory gourmet break.

Day 2 - Saturday: Everything you need to know about the Climats de Bourgogne

Join us at 9am at the Beaune market to browse the stalls of local producers. The short circuit is the order of the day for this splendid local market. Cheeses, charcuterie, vegetables, fruit and gourmet products from local artisans await your shopping basket.

At 11:00 am, it’s time for a coffee break on the terrace. What a pleasure to “chill out” without counting the hours. By 1pm. The peddlers pack up their wares. Baguette, sausage, parsley ham and a few local apples, Reinette from Montbard or Cuzy in your shopping bag, head for the Parc de la Bouzaize, a lovely green setting right in the middle of town. You can sit on a bench or on the lawns to satiate yourself. You can even take a siesta under one of the park’s majestic trees.

For those who prefer a digestive stroll, circuit 12: “A travers quelques Premiers Crus de Beaune” awaits you at the entrance to the park. 2 hours of nature walks just a stone’s throw from Beaune town center, a real treat!

If walking isn’t for you, don’t worry, there’s another eco-friendly means of transport waiting for you.

Taking time out for a stroll to the rhythm of the horses

At 2pm, Gilles will be waiting for you in front of the Parc with his horse-drawn carriage to take you to Pommard. It’s the perfect time to digest and let yourself be carried through the vineyards by the Comtois draught horses. And if you haven’t had your fill of chocolate yet, ask Gilles to drop you off at Appellation Chocolat in the center of Pommard , where you can taste Sébastien Hénon’s chocolates!

Back at 4 p.m., we’re thirsty, and a break at La Parenthèse is richly deserved. This hidden wine bar offers an intimate moment right in the middle of town, with wines from winemakers and estates for epicureans to discover, a good time guaranteed!

Tonight, we’ve decided not to dine out, but to take in the sights! Before sunset, we’re taking to the skies with France Montgolfière. Your bird’s dream comes true. We let ourselves be carried above the vineyards, and the first thing that amazes us is the silence! Observe the Climats, the villages and admire this green ribbon of vines, a magical moment.

Day 3 - Sunday: Family day out in Burgundy

How about renting a bike from Active Tour and taking the whole family on a day trip along the Route des Grands Crus towards the Côte de Nuits? Go ahead! On the way, we stop off in the village of Savigny-lès-Beaune to buy a tasty snack at the boulangerie La Vigneronne. Before returning to the Voie des Vignes, a visit to theChâteau de Savigny is a must. Further on, we picnic at the Oratoire de Frétille, a viewpoint in Pernand-Vergelesses that offers a beautiful view over the vineyards. A few more pedal strokes around the Corton hill to feast your eyes before heading home.

On the Voie des Vignes by bike or from the air, the Côte de Beaune is as seductive as ever, as these 3 days in Burgundy will reveal.
