Activities: Gevrey-Chambertin is a stone’s throw from Vosne-Romanée and Nuits-Saint-Georges
Food and wine
Upon leaving the hotel, take the Route des Grands Crus to Dijon to discover the historical heritage left by the Dukes of Burgundy. Recently named an International City of Gastronomy, along with 3 other founder members of the list, Dijon aims to promote "the French gastronomic meal" listed since 2010 as UNESCO World Heritage. In the area are 4 Michelin-starred restaurants. Within three quarters of an hour of the hotel you can also reach the five Michelin-starred restaurants of Beaune and its surrounding area; the latter town has been chosen as the City of Burgundy wines.
To talk about gastronomy we need fine produce! Below we reveal some essential addresses for local produce to discover in a fun way, which we hope will make your mouth water…

Discovery & adventure
The art of fine fare calls for exercise! Nature is generous enough to provide some outstanding places in the area around the hotel. The mosaic of vineyards between Gevrey-Chambertin and Nuits-Saint-Georges, the difference in height between the villages of La Côte and Les Hautes-Côtes, the forests, valleys and cliffs, the nature reserve of La Combe Lavaux Jean Roland, all offer a variety of opportunities for recreational or more strenuous activities.
