Useful Sites Burgundy

Useful Sites Burgundy Tourism: burgundytourism.com Chateaux in Burgundy: bourgogne-visit.org Great activities for families in Burgundy Enjoy a picnic along the famous Burgundy canal, better yet, take a fabulous cruise and enjoy it in true style on a barge - I did it with Captain Jason and Chef Dawn of the Barge Saroche, one of my best ever holidays. Cycle – there are 800 km of cycle routes and 5 major routes. One of the most fun and relaxing ways to see the area by bike is with Headwater Holidays. They provide bikes, ferry your luggage around, book you into restaurants and hotels and make sure you get to see the best of the region without having to work hard at it. A must-see is the Chateau of Guedelon, Yonnne, a medieval castle being built in the 21st Century. (Open March – November) Auxerre Tourist Office: ot-auxerre.fr Don’t miss Chateauneuf- en-Auxois is a fairy-tale looking picture perfect hill top Burgundian country town. It overlooks the Burgundy Canal and is officially one of the “Plus Beaux Villages de France”. A great place to spend a relaxing day chilling out though there is not a lot to do other than wander, wonder and eat - the views alone are worth the detour. Auxerre: a recognised city of "art and History" and one of the most beautiful cities in France. The medieval architecture, half-timbered houses and wiggly streets are a window to the past. There are lots of great restaurants and bars, museums and tourist attractions plus the 1000 year old majestic Abbey Saint-Germain.
