Burgundy is multi-faceted. It is best known as a land of vineyards, with their slopes gently rolling across the landscape like an ocean of orderly waves studded with stone or brightly-tiled steeples and chateaux and nested villages.

But the diversity of the Burgundy landscape is amazing, from stoney vineyards to lush pastureland to wide plains to forests and lakes  in the Morvan mountains. Burgundy’s architectural heritage is just as rich and diverse,  featuring  slate roofs in the Yonne district to  Roman,  Mediterranean tiles in southern Burgundy, as a reminder of the different watersheds flowing to the north or to the south… You will marvel at its architectural wealth, from dainty chateaux to medieval fortresses, from stunning palaces with their heavily decorated interiors to bare churches and abbeys that fill you with spiritual light, bearing witness to a rich civilization spanning thousands of years…

“My” Burgundy is a reflection of my own experience. I was born in southern Burgundy, a land steeped in the spiritual heritage of the Clunisian monks, and a terroir shaped by generations of wine growers and Charollais cattle breeders. I am hoping that you, too, can come home from your stay taking away some of this rich imprint on your senses and soul.
