Burgundy is best known to us as an area of fine wines but there is much more to be found. The history of the region is rich and it’s roman and medievel past can be found everywhere.
Located halfway bewteen Paris (100kms north) and Lyon (75kms south), Burgundy is a great area to pause in a self-drive holiday. Relax, unwind and, of course sample the wines and gastronomy of the area.
