burgundy route


We have 9 days to go thru Burgundy from Dijon to Provence.Any ideas on a good base in the north and the south. WE love the old villages but want to be able to walk to cafes etc for meals. I have found so many nice places it is hard to decide. I think we will probably choose to stay 3 nights in 3 different places.

Love the look of Chalon sur Saone, Cluny, Macon, Chagny ,Dijon, Beune !!!! Help

It's true that the smaller villages don't usually have a choice of cafés/restaurants so can be limiting if you don't want to drive anywhere in the evening.

Certainly Beaune will fit your requirements for the first or second three days - even if you get a hotel near the ring road, it's easy to walk in to town for the evening as it's quite a small town with plenty of choices for places to eat and drink. It's a really lovely place to be and a convenient base from which to explore the region during the daytimes.

If you enjoy wine, then maybe a stay in Chablis would suit at the start of your trip.

Further south, Mâcon could be worth getting to know and is a good base for exploring both the Mâconnais and the Beaujolais area, or you could stay right in the Beaujolais area in the old town of Belleville or the larger, more commercial Villefranche.

I hope others will weigh in with other non-vinous comments especially about Cluny that I don't know.
