About this location

The Burgundy region

Burgundy is a peaceful rural region,situated in the area between Paris and Lyon,and rich in history and culture.It is well served by motorways and the high speed train,the TGV,making it an easy region to reach and enjoy.

Home to many beautiful historic chateaux,Burgundy also contains several historic abbeys such as Fontenoy,Vezelay and the Abbaye de Citeaux,all of which have played an important part in the religious history of Europe.

Much of the economy of Burgundy centres around the wine production of the Cote d'Or,with towns such as Beaune,Merseault and Nuits

Saint Georges offering a wealth of opportunities to taste and to buy the famous wines.

The towpaths of the 1200km of inland waterways of Burgundy offer the holiday maker the chance of tranquil walking and cycling trips through the countryside,and a perfect opportunity to explore the many small villages lying along the canals and rivers.


Bligny sur Ouche is situated in the Cote d'Or,the area of Burgundy most well known for the production of the famous Burgundy wines.In places the sloping vineyards stretch almost as far as the eye can see,and are particularly attractive in the autumn,when the foliage of the vines turns a rich deep gold,thus giving the Cote d'Or its name.The Cote d'Or is also home to the regional capital of Dijon,which is well worth a visit.

Fifteen minutes from Les Rosiers is the beautiful historic town of Beaune,with its famous Hospices.The town,with its ancient ramparts,contains many restaurants,cafes and independent shops,and is famous for its wine and cheese retailers.No visit to Beaune would be complete without a visit to the magnificent Hospices,and a guided trip on the little tourist train around beaune which leaves from just outside the Hospices.There is also an excellent open air swimming pool in Beaune, open in July and August.

There are many notable places to visit within the area surrounding Bligny,two of which are the towns of Semur en Auxois and the medieval village of Chateauneuf.

.The Chateau neuf (new castle),perched on top of a hill, dates from the twelfth century,and is effectively a fortified manor house surrounded by an enchanting village which gives the visitor the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful view.The castle is open to visitors,and a visit can be followed by a welcome drink in the village square.

Semur en Auxois,at about an hours drive from Bligny,is a fortified town,set above a river.The visitor can obtain a leaflet from the tourist information centre detailing a town walk,and the town square is an ideal place to stop for a drink and lunch in the restaurants and bars of Semur.For those who prefer a picnic,there are several picnic tables and benches set in the beautiful scenery on the banks of the river,and competition for these can sometimes be keen.

Other notable places of interest include the chateaux of La Rochepot and Commarin, which are open to visitors, the chateau of Clos de Vougey where wine can be sampled and bought, and the abbeys of Fontenoy and Citeaux, both of which have played a prominent role in European history.

The restaurants of the Cote d'Or are many and varied, but for those with deep pockets and an eye for the unusual, the Abbeye de La Bussiere is worth a mention.

This delightful hotel is occupies the buildings and grounds of an ancient Cistercian abbey.It has been imaginatively converted, retaining many of the original features and a unique ambience, and the more reasonably priced lunchtime menu gives the chance to enjoy the historic architecture and the stunning grounds. Booking is always necessary.

Finally, for those who fancy spending time in the Burgundy sun, there is a lakeside beach at the Lac de Panthier, approximately fifteen minutes drive from Bligny. The Lac de Panthier is a reservoir supplying the nearby Canal de Bourgogne. The sandy beach is supervised during high season, and is conveniently situated adjacent to the campsite restaurant, the terrace of which has views across the lake. For more energetic visitors there is a four kilometre flat walk on the banks of the lake.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of the attractions of the Cote d'Or,but it can be seen from this summary that there is plenty here to engage the interest of the holiday maker. There is a tourist information centre in the square of Bligny itself, which will enable all our guests to benefit fully from a holiday in this fascinating area.

We are happy to report that the roadworks remarked upon will be finished this week,in line with the predicted duration of two weeks.
The ease of booking was slightly compromised due to the fact that three currencies were involved,with the guest wanting to ensure that bank charges were kept as low as possible.However,we are very happy that the booking went through smoothly,and that the guest appears to have had a really enjoyable holiday.
