This cycling tour is the perfect combination of Burgundy’s most important treasured assets: wine and cuisine or more artfully referred to as gastronomy! Wonder the cobbled streets of Beaune, the centre of the Burgundy wine making region, and take part in a wine tasting or a tour of the Mustard factory.

Burgundy is a fabulous region for a cycling tour not only for the expansive vineyards, history and culture, but also the national cycle network ‘Voie Verte’ or ‘Green Ways’, an asphalted route from Chalon sur Saone to Macon dedicated to cyclists. World famous Abbey’s, Roman architecture, a National stud farm, 17th Century castles, and views of Mont Blanc fuse to make this a really rather special cycle tour. The wine domains of Givry, Santenay, Puligny-Montrachet, Pommard and many more also play their unique part in making this memorable, thoroughly enjoyable and most importantly, educational.

Day 6: Cluny – Macon: 28km

Day 7: Depart from Macon

Day 1: Arrival in Beaune

Check in to your 3* hotel in Beaune, the town at the centre of the Burgundy winemaking region in France. Get acquainted with your hire bikes and explore this beautiful cobbled town.

Day 2: Beaune visit or Loop ride

Today you have the choice of circling Beaune on one of two suggested routes (one of 40km and another shorter covering approximately 28km), or exploring the town itself. A visit to the charitable Hospices de Beaune or Hotel-Dieu de Beaune is a must. As you wonder the cobbled streets there are countless opportunities for wine-tasting and for children and adults alike – a tour of the Mustard factory is also highly recommended.

Day 3: Beaune – Chassey le Camp: 25 Km

Heading south towards Santenay your days ride will take you through some of the worlds most famous Grand Cru vineyards. Pommard is situated directly south of Beaune and is world famous for its Côte de Beaune wine production. Continue on to sample the white wine made from the Chardonnay grape at Montrachet and Batard Montrachet before moving onto the red wine produced in Volnay and Pommard Continue along this cycle track to reach the commune of Chassey le Camp, surrounded by vineyards and meadows it lies 6 kilometres west of the larger town of Chagny, and south of Santenay. Overnight stay in a 3* hotel.

Day 4: Chassey le Camp – Dracy Le Fort: 25km

After breakfast you will cycle through a few small countryside routes to join a cycle track alongside the “Canal du Centre”. Continue along this cycle track to reach the town of Chagny, pass near Rully and the Chalon sur Soane region. Dracy le Fort is a small village on the border of the Cote Chalonnaise vineyards. Stay overnight in a 3* hotel with swimming pool and spa.

Day 5: Dracy le Fort – Cluny: 44km

After a hearty breakfast you will join the national cycle network ‘Voie Verte’ or ‘Green Ways’ in Givry, an asphalted route from Chalon sur Saone to Macon dedicated to cyclists. Along the route, wonder at the Roman architecture and tranquillity in Buxy, St Gengoux le National and Malay as you make your way towards Cormatin with its marvellous castle from the period of Louis XIII. It was built by the Marquises of Huxelles in the early seventeenth century to show their power and prestige: wide moat, turrets, high rusticated basement, gunports and drawbridge, the castle will undoubtedly impress. The Abbey of Cluny and stud farm is another must visit attraction; they operate tours and shows through the week. Overnight stay in a charming B&B.

Day 6: Cluny – Macon: 28km

After breakfast, you will re-join the ‘Voie Verte’. Todays route will take you through the eerie Berze le Chatel tunnel, from which you can see the Castle of Berze Le Chatel up on the hillside to your left. We recommend you take a short detour to visit this still habited romantic chateau. As you continue to your final destination of Macon, and with no traffic to worry about, you can immerse yourself in the landscape dominated by the Rock of Solutre and Vergisson, and the perpetual vineyards of Saint-Veran and Pouilly-Fuisse. Stay overnight in a 3* hotel in Macon.

Day 7: Depart from Macon

On your last day of the tour, check out of your 3* hotel and explore this original town which rests alongside the Saone River. To make your way home the closest train station will take you to Beaune.
