All our collections in Burgundy:
Best known for its vineyards, chateaux, mediaeval churches and of course its cuisine, some of the best places to stay in Burgundy can be found in more off the beaten track locations.
The area has huge history; for centuries Burgundy remained independent from the rest of France, ruled by its powerful Dukes. This rich heritage can be seen all over the area from the ruins of Cluny monastery to the numerous chateaux that dot the countryside.
In Burgundy (or Bourgogne as the French call it - hence Beef Bourguignon) there are thousands of excellent small scale producers of both red and white wine. By far the most commonly grown grapes in Burgundy are Pinot Noir (red) and Chardonnay (white).
Although Burgundy sounds red to English-speaking ears, more white wine is produced there than red. Domaines, (when similar producers are marketed together as one type of wine, as opposed to chateaux where everything from growing the grapes to bottling is done in one place) are the norm in Burgundy.
The villages of Chablis and Nuits-St-Georges whose names will be familiar to anyone who has ever lifted a wine glass to their lips are both in the region.
In the centre of the region, the national park covers 1,000 square miles of wild, unspoilt and protected landscape with verdant forests, clear blue lakes and villages with tree-shaded squares and the kind of family run brasseries that can make a holiday in France.
Some of the best places to stay in Burgundy can be found here: The Bernard Loiseau - La Côte d'Or is a restaurant with rooms in an idyllic setting within the park. Nearby hotels with easy access to the park are the Chateau Les Roche, Le Moulin des Templiers and the Chateau de Vault de Lugny.
There are so many chateaux to see in Burgundy that it would be possible to spend an entire holiday wandering their corridors and marvelling at remarkable rooms.
The Italian Renaissance-style Chateau d'Ancy le Franc built in the 16th Century for the Dukes of Burgundy houses the biggest collection of Renaissance murals in France.

There are loads of them. Try Chateau de Couches which has vineyards, underground tunnels and a 15th Century Chapel or the Chateau de Blancey which has a well-known rose garden is well worth a visit.
One of the best places to stay in Burgundy is the Chateau d'Igé.

The best-known regional specialities of Burgundy are probably Beef Bourguignon, the region's signature dish and the stinky, runny irresistible Epoisses cheese which comes from the village of the same name. The locals like to eat it with a glass of local vielles vignes Chablis.
