For your touring pleasure the Burgundy (or in French, Bourgogne) region has much to feed your spirit and delight your senses. Cars can be rented near the TGV stop in Montbard or at the local Renault dealership in Semur for sightseeing or wine tasting. Bikes can also be rented in town for local touring or to ride along the Burgundy canal. For driving tips in France click here.
Throughout the year there are many wine events and festivals that grace the region, as well as local cheeses and dishes to sample.
The Abbeys at Fontenay, the nearby town of Flavigny-sur-Ozerian (Chocolat film location), the castle Forge Buffon, the Château De Bussy-Rabutin near the archeological site of Alésia where Julius Ceasar conquered the Gauls are just a few of the many tourist destinations you can easily visit on daytrips.
Dijon, (yes, origin of the namesake mustard and capital of Burgundy) is a short train ride or 45 minutes away by car, and a modern city with many attractions, food lovers' delights, and vibrant night life.
Our house in Semur-en-Auxois is well situated as a home base for any length of stay in the Burgundy region, truly the gastronomic heart of France.
