Once a powerful Duchy, more powerful than France itself, Burgundy is often overlooked by tourists. Of course the area is famed for its towns like Chablis that produce the wine by the same name, but there's so much more to it than that.
Get away from it all in the 1000 square miles of the Morvan National Park. Perfect for hiking the mountainous southern peaks or enjoying a more sedate walk around some of the pretty villages dotted around one of the most beautiful landscapes in France.
Burgundy is famed for its food, Boeuf Bouguignon in particular, being its national dish. But if course there are plenty more local dishes to tantalise your taste buds including the famed French cheese Epoisses, produced in a beautiful village of the same name, all washed done with a cool glass of chablis.
The area is full of history, from the grand Ducal Palace in Dijon to the ruins of Cluny, where the huge ancient church was pulled down during the French Revolution. Not to mention the hill top towns, beautiful chateaux and impressive abbeys that grace the Burgundy countryside.
A real unexplored gem of a place, Burgundy is yours for the taking.
