Flavigny-sur-Ozerain

If you are touring and visiting the Abbaye de Fontenay and Château de Bussy-Rabutin, a couple of very pleasant hours can be spent wandering around the medieval village of Flavigny-sur-Ozerain. This picturesque village, high on a rock, listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France, was a fortified town in the Middle Ages. Built of mellow stone, the local inhabitants now take great pride in the preservation and restoration of their village and there are interesting architectural details at every turn. The film 'Chocolat' starring Juliette Binoche was made here, bringing modern day notoriety.

Artists have come to live in the village and there are art galleries and craft shops to browse around In Rue Lacordaire, Maison des Arts Textiles & du Design regularly stage exhibitions in the lovely
old building.

Burgundy & Franche-Comté

Burgundy considers itself the heart of France, a prosperous region with world-renowned wine, earthy but excellent cuisine and magnificent architecture. Franche-Comté to the east combines gentle farmland with lofty Alpine forests.  Add the plethora of world-class wineries to some of France’s most gorgeous countryside and you have the recipe for a perfect tour of Burgundy.

Bungundy’s vignerons (winegrowers) only have small vineyards, rarely more than 10 hectares, and they produce small quantities of very good wine. Burgundy reds are made with pinot noir grapes and the best vintages demand 10 to 20 years to age; whites are made with chardonnay. The region’s most famous wine route, the Route des Grands Crus, and its often narrow variants wend their way between stone-built villages and steeple-topped churches or the turrets of a chateau peeping above the trees.

We've hand-picked the very best boutique and luxury bed and breakfasts in Europe to bring you our collection of stylish romantic retreats. Find your perfect bed and breakfast and get the low-down on all the things you can do and places you can visit whilst you are there. Choose from an exclusive collection of boutique hotels, boutique bed and breakfasts, chambre d'hôtes du charme and exclusive homestays, all fabulous places to stay in Burgundy.
