If you're interested in wine you'll fit in very well in Beaune. Unofficial capital of the Cote d'Or, Beaune is surrounded by golden hills of vine rows. This is what they make, they talk about, sell and of course taste. It is undoubtedly one of France's top destinations for wine tastings, and many of the best places to stay in Beaune will arrange all that for you.

The main event in Beaune's calendar is 'Les Trois Glorieuses', a three day wine fair held every November. This is when the wine is transferred from barrels to bottles, and wine buyers and merchants from around the world arrive to sample the previous year's vintage. Often making a judgement on a wine they won't even take delivery of for several years.

Beaune also has a wine museum. Housed in a building which was once the meeting place for the Dukes of Burgundy.

Aside from wine, Beaune is most famous for its Hotel-Dieu. Built in the 15th Century, this was one of Europe's earliest hospitals. But the Hotel-Dieu isn't just famous for its original purpose, it's got a glorious roof - tiled in a wonderful mosaic pattern. It remained in use as a hospital until the 70s and is now a museum of itself.

The rest of historic Beaune fans out from the hospital complex to the ramparts. On your stroll outwards you'll pass the 12th Century clock tower, medieval half-timbered houses and the Church of Notre-Dame - which has some impressive tapestries.

If you're driving north Beaune is an excellent place to stop off for a box of Burgundy. And you may as well sample local dishes Boeuf Bourguignon or snails in garlic, while you're at it.

For a country house atmosphere

  • The Hotel Villa Louise is one of the best places to stay in Beaune if you're looking for a relaxed country house hotel feel.
