Having been home to numerous religious communities and most notably to monks, today Burgundy continues to be a land of welcome for all visitors and free-thinkers who wish to stop and discover her treasures. This region, distinguished by the ambition of its dukes during the 14th and 15th centuries, has continued to shine throughout Europe through its wealth of gastronomical, wine-making, architectural and historical specificities. Abbeys, palaces, castles, Romanesque churches, mediaeval town centres and villages will never cease to amaze and enchant you. And its marbled Burgandy Ham terrine with parsely, poached eggs in wine sauce, Beef Bourgignon, Frog’s legs, Epoisse cheese, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines along with a host of other gourmet specialties will ravish your tastebuds !
