The courtyard of the "hospices" in Beaune
A Fly in the wine !
Visiting Burgundy with a fly rod seems impossible, as there are no trout streams meandering among the vineyards. Though, fistly, Burgundy is a perfect easy stop on the road between Paris and the Jura region (It is also true if you are arriving from the south). Then, there is also a couple of nice spots in the green parts of Burgundy where the land is covered of woods and meadows instead of vineyards.. For any short stay we can set up for you both fishing and wine cellars experience. See below our 3 Burgundy proposals, or click here to see the Jura.
