Un café s`il vous plait……..

Un café s`il vous plait……..

My top rated two ‘things to do’ in Burgundy are: take a cycle ride through the vines and villages such as Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, and sip on a coffee at a pavement table outside Café Baltard or Dix Carnot in Beaune.

La Buissonniere restaurant, Beaune.

New, fresh, delightful. New restaurants, or change of ownership occur in Beaune on a fairly regular basis. We have observed previously that too many of them offer similar style dishes, rarely venturing far from your traditional Burgundian fare such as coq au vin and beouf bourgognoin.

Christmas warmth in Burgundy

Christmas warmth in Burgundy

One of the things we love about December in Burgundy is the change of landscape that occurs. Not amongst the vines, though that happens too, but more throughout all the narrow Village streets and squares, as well as our majestic Churches and Town Halls.
