Car: not necessary
Most people will know of Burgundy for the wine that makes it so famous, and in the Cote d’Or department especially, you will find one large blanket of vines. Vine after vine, with the odd unspoilt village or town thrown in, and somehow, even when the buildings are falling apart, they still manage to hold a magical charm.
This wonderful countryside of the ‘Cote d’Or’ (literal meaning ‘Golden hillside’ due to the colours of the vineyards in the autumn), ranks among the most beautiful and varied landscapes in France, with the stunning Hospice de Beaune close by.
Only10 a minute walk from train station and a 10 minute drive from A6 and A31 Auto routes.
The Porte St Nicolas is the impressive stone archway that forms the north entrance to the beautiful, medieval city of Beaune. Situated inside the gate, this second floor apartment is the perfect base to explore this charming town and wonderful region from.
At Loge St Nicolas, you are with-in the walls of the city and a short walk from everything you need. Stroll through the medieval streets, take in the wealth of historic sights. Savour the colours and aromas of fresh produce at the Saturday market. Bargain for antiques, or just linger over a glass of local wine at one of the many sidewalk cafes. Beaune is the perfect small city and a great base from which to explore Burgundy. And don't forget to visit the impressive and famous Hospice de Beaune while in Beaune!
