Includes FREE planning and background information. With the vineyards and plains of Champagne to the north and the Rhône Valley, gateway to the Midi-Pyrénées, to the south, Burgundy (Bourgogne in French) can make a strong case for being the real heartland of France. Amid some of the country’s most gorgeous countryside, two great French passions, wine and food, come together here in a particularly enticing and hearty form. Burgundy’s towns and its dashingly handsome capital, Dijon, are heirs to a glorious architectural heritage that goes back to the Renaissance, the Middle Ages and beyond, into the mists of Gallo-Roman and Celtic antiquity. The area is a paradise for lovers of the great outdoors, too. You can hike and cycle through the highly civilised vineyards of the Côte d’Or, on a network of cycling trails (such as the Voie Verte in Saône-et-Loire) that are also great for in-line skating, and in the wild reaches of the Parc Naturel Régional du Morvan (Morvan Regional Park)- glide along the waterways of the Yonne in a canal boat- or float above the vineyards in a hot-air balloon.
