The Burgundy region has some of France’s most sumptuous countryside with its beautiful medieval villages and rolling hills. Of course the area is synonymous with two of France’s passions; food & wine. Due to the region’s centuries of dedication to viticulture, the vineyards have been granted a Unesco World Heritage status. There are many wine routes to discover where you can enjoy the delicious Cote de Nuits, Cote de Beaune, Meursault, Givry and of course the famous Chablis.
The Jura Mountains sit at the foot of the Alps extending along the Franco–Swiss border from Lake Geneva in the north to Belfort in the south. The mountains lent their name to the Jurassic period in geology, when they formed. The highest point is Crêt de la Neige (1720m), in the southwest of the Parc Naturel Régional du Haut-Jura. Spring and summer is very popular with hikers and mountain bikers while the winter sees an influx of cross country and alpine skiers. The region is well known for the delicious produce of Comté cheese and its gold coloured vin jaune.
Dijon is the capital of the Burgundy-Franche-Comté and is one of the country’s most appealing cities. Once the capital of the Duchy of Burgundy, today its pedestrianised city center streets are an excellent spot to discover some of the region’s best local produce with the many delicious restaurants, brasseries and bars surrounded by elegant medieval and Renaissance buildings.
