The Best Hotels in the Côte d'Or

Hotel La Cueillette

Translated as Golden Hillside, the Côte d'Or region basically falls into the natural boundaries of the Côte d'Or wine growing region, between Dijon in the north and the unofficial capital, Beaune in the south. The southern stretch if the Côte d'Or is where you’ll see most of the vineyards, to the west is the lush green of the Morvan National Park, and to the northwest there are a number of architectural and historical treasures, including Alésia, where Julius Caesar finally managed to vanquish the Gauls in 52BC. And, as is often the case with wine regions, the food is outstanding. Use our guide to the best hotels in the Cote d'Or and start planning your trip.

Best Hotels in the Côte d'Or

For Food and Wine

hostellerie le cedre

  • Hostellerie le Cedre is a smart, 40 room hotel in the centre of Beaune, with airy rooms and suites and a charming garden terrace. Of course there’s a good cellar too, and a Michelin-starred restaurant.
  • If you're looking for spectacular views, Le Terre d'Or in the hills above Beaune is the property to book. This charming, nine room B&B has views over the vineyards and the town's ramparts. The rooms are split between a large house and a smaller cottage, and all are decorated in pale woods and creams making them feel bright and airy.
  • If you're a fan of white over red (we're talking wine here!), you may also want to consider Les Charmes in Meursault as your Burgundy base. This beautiful 18th Century mansion has charming grounds - more like a small park than a garden - and 13 simple, yet elegant rooms. Calm, with an old fashioned atmosphere.
  • The Hotel la Cueillette, also in Meursault, is a wonderful 12th century château surrounded by vine rows. There are 19 luxurious rooms, a lovely grape-themed spa, a fine dining restaurant and one of the region’s best wine cellars.
