    Discover the beautiful Côte d’Or region in the Burgundy: castles, walks, villages and gastronomy

And no trip to the Burgundy would be complete without discovering its cultural, gastronomic and oenological wealth.

    The Burgundy is a paradise for fun and unique kids activities. Choose originality and life in the great outdoors for your children. Our top picks for kids:

Some highlights include Semur en Auxois, Flavigny sur Ozerain and Château neuf en Auxois, which are considered some of the most beautiful villages in France, as well as the Ouche valley, with its wealth of fauna and flora and its ideal setting for fly fishing, Montbard and La Roche de Saffres for rock climbing, Pouilly en Auxois, and the region’s many fortresses…
    There is something for everyone!


    Saulieu is renowned for its gastronomy. Come and sample specialities such as Burgundy snails, beef bourguignon, coq au vin, poached eggs in red wine sauce, and Burgundy truffles. Among the famous wine estates, the Clos de Vougeot is one of the most famous Renaissance-style castles of the Burgundy vineyards. Treat your taste buds to fine wines combined with exceptional cuisine!

    In Arnay le Duc, located between the Auxois and the Morvan, you can take a table at a local restaurant to sample the traditional speciality of parsley-seasoned ham! A little anecdote: the gastronomers of the brotherhood of the Poule au Pot d’Henri IV et du Pays d’Arnay gather here in the autumn. Just 800 metres from the campsite, you can reach the heart of the village which has preserved its rich cultural heritage (beautiful old houses including a 16th century Burgundy house decorated with grotesques and a watchtower, a medieval tower, and a castle…) and its tranquil natural environment, with the leisure centre at Etang de Fouché lake.
