Self-Catering Holiday Rentals in France Burgundy for Your Home Stay

The beautiful Burgundy region of France is a real favourite with visitors for its historic past and its excellent wines. Add the wonderful scenery and interesting towns, villages and natural attractions and you're on to a real winner for family holidays. It's not only families who will love this exciting region, it's one of the most romantic places for couples to visit and groups of friends can try a massive range of outdoor sports and activities in the Morvan National Park area. Choosing a holiday home here gives you the freedom to really get to know this fabulous destination. Burgundy produces some of the finest wines in the world. Famous names such as Nuit St. Georges, Beaune and Chablis are all produced here. Macon is the most southerly of the towns in the Saone-et-Loire department, and the pretty pastel painted buildings with their tiled roofs give the town a real Mediterranean feel. On the banks of the Saone River, Macon is also a classified 'ville fleurie' and the octagonal towers of the Old Cathedral of Saint Vincent, which was built from the 11th to the 14th century, can be seen from afar. The 19th century poet and politician Alphonse de Lamartine was born in Macon in 1790, and the 12th century Lamartines chateau at Saint-Point just to the north of the town is a great way to spend an afternoon. The Cote d'Or department in the north east of Burgundy is where you'll find beautiful Fontenay Abbey, one of the finest French historical buildings. Fontenay was founded by Saint Bernard of Clairvaux in 1118, and today the buildings have been restored to give visitors a fascinating insight into life in a large French Cistercian monastery. Guedelon Castle near Treigny in the Yonne department of Burgundy is a must for anyone interested in history and architecture. This exciting project to construct a medieval castle using only tools, methods and materials which would have been available in the middle ages is fascinating to see. Dijon is possibly the only town in Burgundy which is famous for something other than wine, and the famous Dijon mustard is a highlight of the annual International and Gastronomic Fair. Cassis, a delicious blackcurrant liqueur, is another famous product of Dijon; try a kir made with local Aligote white wine. Every three years Dijon also hosts Florissimo, a fabulous flower show and horticultural event. Dijon is great for shopping; choose from designer boutiques, department stores and the Boutique Maille, for the finest mustards, on the Rue de la Liberte. See the famous polar bear sculpture in Jardin Darcy, or take a trip to nearby Beaune where one of the regions' top wines is created. Don't leave Dijon without visiting the 15th century Notre Dame church to see 'la chouette'. This carving of an owl, the symbol of the city, is said to bring luck when you touch it. Your holiday home in Burgundy is perfect for relaxing after a day spent exploring this wonderfully diverse part of France.
