Discover a region where nature has been preserved and landscapes that will take your breath away. Visit old prestigious cities and their beautiful historic houses.

Saint-Révérien

The church of Saint-Révérien was built in the early 12th century by the architects and masons of the Cluniac order with which it was affiliated. It served as a stop for pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostella.

Castle of Bazoches

Medieval castle, bought by Marshal de Vauban in 1675 with the reward granted to him by King Louis XIV after the siege of Maastricht. In summer, concerts are given in the courtyard.

The castle of Marshal de Vauban is situated in rural French country side.

Marshal de Vauban, builder of hundreds of fortresses and strongholds, was in the service of King Louis XIV for 57 years!

The castle became his property after the fast and ingenious conquest of the city of Maastricht. He bought it with the 80.000 pounds given to him as a reward.

Built in the 12th century, the feudal castle welcomed the Crusade Kings like Richard Lionheart on their way to the Holy Land. From its chambers there is a direct line of sight to Vezelay, where the second and third crusade started.

Wine Regions of the Burgundy

The region is proud of the broad experience of its winefarmers, and through the centuries the Burgundy has made itself an unequaled reputation for the quality of its wines.

The restaurants…

The Burgundian Gastronomy

The restaurants which we have chosen to recommend to you have excellent menus and a warm atmosphere. Those are two good reasons to dine out, aren’t they?

This list is far from complete, a lot of other good restaurants will be added shortly.

CORBIGNY

Eric CONAN

To compose his menus, Eric Conan uses quality products from the region. He buys his wines from the better wineries.

Le Cépage also has a bistro just beside the main restaurant. Here the menu is less sophisticated; perhaps the better one if you are with children.

MONCEAUX LE COMTE

Ronald en Katharina KLUFT

The Dutch chef Ronald chose to settle down in France. His friendly German wife speaks English which certainly is an advantage with so many nationalities dining here.

Possibility to dine outside.

The kitchen is excellent and the very warm welcome is genuine. A recommendation for a great evening out.
