Don't miss Beaune, just 30 km from our hotel spa. Before becoming the capital of Burgundy wines, the town enjoyed the patronage of the Dukes of Burgundy who built ramparts, a belfry and the now world-famous hospice: Les Hospices de Beaune. This hospital from the middle ages has lost none of its glory over the centuries. When visiting this stunning example of extravagant Gothic architecture, take time to admire the superb court of honour, the magnificent varnished tile roofs, the skylights, and inside, the great hall of Pôvres, and the splendid, painted and sculpted ceiling polyptych representing the last judgement by the Dutch master Van Der Weyden.
While the Hôtel-Dieu is the city’s most iconic monument, a walk through Beaune will take you past many other interesting sights. The architecture of the Burgundy Wine Museum, in its 14th century palace, is worth the detour. Visit Notre-Dame basilica, listed as a historic monument, and one of the last, great Romanesque churches of Burgundy. Admire the works on display at the Fine Arts museum or discover the secrets of making mustard at the Moutarderie Fallot. Then, head to the old town of Beaune in La Bouzaize and La Creuzotte parks before making your way back to our restaurant in the countryside for a well-earned gourmet meal.
