Our first Burgundy tour drew to a close yesterday, and I am grateful to have hosted such a wonderful small group of guests, always interested, always appreciative and always smiling!
Showing them around this area of France has been a joy. Together we have discovered chateaux, taken cooking classes, visited artisan manufacturers, visited private homes and gardens and of course eaten well all along the way. Beaune is close to the centre of France. Its rolling hills and famous vineyards boasting some of the most legendary names in wine.
There are some outstanding restaurants in Beaune. Sometimes hidden, or off the beaten track, and I was glad to have spent time tracking down my favourites before the tour started. We also took time to shop for antiques, to picnic in the gardens of a chateaux and visit wine cellars.
I thought you’d like to see a few shots of our stay. Some of the moments that caught my eye, because a tour like this is not only about the itinerary, but also the little details along the way.
We’ll soon be posting our dates for tours next year, so if you have any questions or if you’d like to join us, don’t hesitate to drop us a line, we’re always happy to answer questions.
