Small independent hotels in Burgundy

Hotels with character - from budget to boutique

iHi - Independent-hotels.info -  Burgundy

 Covid-19 info  France is back open for business again but the virus has not gone away. It could still come back. Hotels, large and small, are bound by strict sanitation rules to prevent a resurgence, but there is no such thing as zero-risk. The risks are, nonetheless, mathematically smaller in smaller hotels, with less rooms and less guests, than they are in big hotels. Besides, independent establishments, particularly those that are family-run, have a huge interest in making sure they remain virus-free, as their very survival could depend on it. Many of the small hotels listed on iHi are in small towns and villages, or even out in the back of beyond, where the virus never showed up even at the height of the pandemic.

Discovering Burgundy.

Burgundy lies two to four hours' drive southeast of Paris, depending on where you go and the route you take.
   One of the great historic regions of France, Burgundy was once known for the power of its Dukes, which rivalled that of the Kings of France. Today the region is best know as home of some of the world's greatest wines - and this, among other factors, makes it a region that attracts visitors.
  The great Burgundy vineyard area stretches from the southern limits of the regional capital Dijon, as far as Macon in the south. The vineyard is mainly a narrow strip of land on the lower slopes of the hills that border the western side of the vale of the Saône. The most prestigious vineyards are to be found between Dijon and Chalon sur Saone, notably aroung Beaune.
  Other Burgundy vineyards are located in the Yonne department (89), around the small towns of Tonnerre and Chablis.
    Besides its vineyards, Burgundy has many other attractions, including the  forests and low mountains of the Morvan, in the area of Autun, and the large flat expanses of the Saone valley, famous for its slom moving rivers and its lakes.
   Burgundy also boasts many fine monuments, in particular the great historic churches of Vezelay, Tournus, Cluny or Autun, the palace of the Dukes of Burgundy in Dijon, and the world-renowned mediaeval hospice in Beaune.  Burgundy also has many pretty canals and villages, and a large number of castles.
   The hotels on this page have been carefully selected from among the many hundreds of hotels in  Burgundy .
