"I want to ride my bicycle..."
We recommend putting all your trust in specialist Christiane and setting off on a fun electric bike ride with friends on a Sunday through the Yonne vineyards.
If you choose the ride through the Auxerrois and Chablisien vineyard with France à Vélo, you will be riding through some pretty winegrowing villages and charming medieval towns.
Comfortably seated on your Bosch 500+ electric bike, you won't even realise you've covered 64 km!
In Burgundy, the delicious local products are sacred. While you're out on your bike ride, you could stop for a 100% Burgundian picnic with the beautiful colours of autumn serving as the backdrop.
Tasting in amongst the vines
A bike ride through the vines is one thing, but tasting the delicious production from these vines is even better!
Come to an estate to taste and learn all about the wines of the Chablisien and Auxerrois vineyard. Among them is the famous Chablis, a globally renowned white wine with notes of pear, grapefruit and honey. An awakening for all the senses!
France à Vélo organises everything
Thanks to her extensive experience in tourism, and more specifically in organising group trips, Christiane Trégouet will be delighted to share her passion for cycling and for Burgundy with you.
France à Vélo has 47 itineraries on offer, all with varying difficulty and duration, so there's something for everyone and for all levels of ability!
We highly recommend the electric scooter! This fun and original means of transport is very practical and a great way to access the whole vineyard. France à Vélo has electric scooters available to hire.Come on, let's do it!
A superb stopover!
At the Domaine Alain Geoffroy in Beine, you are invited to come and discover the famous Chablis on a tasting at the estate. You’ll have the chance to visit the museum of the grapevine and bottle opener, where you’ll learn all about how winegrowers lived in the past.Geoffroy Alain
A date for your diaries!
Don’t miss the grand opening of the Cité des Climats et Vins de Bourgogne in Chablis in 2023! A fun and educational centre where visitors can learn all about the Burgundy vineyards. You’ll need to come back...
Time to celebrate!
Chestnuts are a symbol of autumn in Burgundy, and so they are of course celebrated. In October in Diges, don’t miss the chance to taste hot, grilled chestnuts at this enjoyable event with a family vibe.
Auxerre, Town of Art and History
It’s not possible to come to the Yonne without visiting Auxerre. There are superb views of the river Yonne from the town and cathedral, and this town is particularly beautiful in autumn when the blazing autumn colours are everywhere and reflect onto the waters. We have selected 2 of the unmissable sights to see here, besides the guided tour of this pretty town.
The cloister, wall frescoes and crypt make this a fantastic discovery in the autumn light.
Unforgettable experiences on the water
Flipper Nautic offers you the chance for some great experiences on the waters of the Yonne.
