Tourism in Burgundy

Perfect for lovers of history and wine

Located in the heart of the Saône-et-Loire department, our hotel is the perfect place to stay to discover everything Burgundy has to offer. Exceptional Romanesque sites; the vineyards of the Mâconnais and Beaujolais; the banks of the Saône with its cycle routes – you’re sure to find something to enjoy here. Journey back in time to the Middle Ages with a trip to Brancion. This unique town offers visitors unforgettable views and magnificent architectural heritage, including a fortified gate, the Romanesque Saint-Pierre Church, the 16th century market, the dungeon, and the château, whose earliest remnants date back to the 11th century.
If you prefer more recent architecture, try a visit to Cormartin and fall under the spell of its château. Located 20 km from the hotel on the Route de Cluny, this 17th century residence features all the architectural details of the late Renaissance: a grand staircase, ceilings painted with clouds, a mirrored room, gold and lapis blue décor. After touring the luxurious apartments, visit one of France's loveliest gardens, with its ancient oaks, its alley lined with plane trees, and its kitchen garden. If that leaves you hungry for more, take Southern Burgundy’s Route des Châteaux to admire other masterpieces, including the châteaux in Drée and Sully.

Southern Burgundy

Burgundy also has plenty on offer for nature lovers. The region boasts views of luxuriant landscapes as you sail down the Saône or hike along its banks. The river's old tow-paths have even been turned into walking and cycling paths. As you travel along the waterway, there are plenty of cultural and gourmet spots to take in. The most determined walkers and cyclists can go as far as Mâcon to visit monuments like the Hôtel-Dieu pharmacy, the church of Saint-Pierre, the Maison de Bois house, or the Musée des Ursulines.
