The summer holidays may be over, but don't put that suitcase away just yet! Take advantage of a mild spell to check out our selection of accommodation in Burgundy. Our specially selected addresses are your chance to make the most of the gentle September temperatures.
Our favourite September activities
In Burgundy there are hundreds of ways to enjoy the month of September, especially when summer extends into autumn:
- Head for the vineyards, to soak up the atmosphere that reigns at a wine estate during the grape harvest. Another option is to explore among the vines in a side-car for a taste of the life of yesteryear.
- In September, it isn't too late to take to the skies above the Morvan, the vineyard or one of the many canals that criss-cross the region.
- After a very hot summer, nothing feels quite as good as cooling off near a refreshing river. You'll enjoy a boat cruise on the river Yonne or a visit to a mill standing on an island, where walnut oil is produced the traditional way to the sound of flowing water.
