Based in Burgundy's wine capital, Beaune, this short break combines cycling through the grand estates with time to soak up the charm of the town. The nearby vineyards offer a number of interesting cycle routes on a combination of dedicated cycle paths and minor roads, past rolling vine covered hills and small hamlets brimming with local produce.
