Well kept secrets we love to share

Over the past 10 years we have gathered some really nice addresses thanks to living in Burgundy, restauring a château and starting a boutique hotel. Take your time to go through them and feel free to send us an email if you want to know more about any of the recommendations.

Our favourite Burgundy wines:

Château de la Resle is based in the northern part of Burgundy, close to Chablis. Nevertheless this region has much more to offer than “just” Chablis. Irancy is getting more and more recognised for its pinot noir. Crémant de Bourgogne is another local wine produced close to the Château and Saint Bris le Vineux makes the only Sauvignon Blanc in Burgundy. If you have had enough of wine there is a very nice organic brewery close to Vezelay.
