LOCAL AREA: Burgundy Villa is situated in the authentically French village of Saunières, an ideal location to explore Beaune, Chalon sur Saône, and the vineyards of Southern Burgundy. Pick up freshly baked croissants and bread from Verdun Sur Le Doubs, a small town with a weekly market every Thursday morning. Just a nine-minute drive from the villa, its old medieval streets are full of character and there are some lovely restaurants to sample delicious local cuisine.

ACTIVITIES NEARBY: Located on the ‘Doubs’ riverside, there is a good-size fishing spot only 100 metres from the Villa, superb for catching carp and pike. Fishing permits can be purchased from the local town of Verdun sur le Doubs at the fishing equipment shop (closed on Mondays and Sundays from November to April, and on Sunday afternoons only from May to October). There is also a boat slope just in front of the Villa, which can be used free of charge to unload your boat into the river, and a barn next to the Villa for storage. If you fancy exploring the Doubs river further, there are some local companies offering canoe and kayaking experiences.

One of the most famous sites to visit in Burgundy is the Hospices de Beaune, a 30-minute drive away from Burgundy Villa. Famous for their auction of wines each year in November, it also houses fine works of art including ‘The Last Judgement’ by Roger van der Weyden, the pioneer of religious painting in the 15th century.
