La résidence les Allées du Green
They say that Burgundy always leaves you with a trace of nostalgia. It is a region with a wealth of history and an independent spirit, of great Romanesque cathedrals and glittering coloured fish scale roof tiles, of full-bodied wine and a hearty cuisine.
Les Allées du Green is a 3 star hotel residence set in peaceful gardens with private parking, 3 km from Beaune, at the center of the Côte d’Or vineyards, which make some of the most famous of the Burgundy wines such as Pommard, Meursault, Nuits St Georges and Gevrey-Chambertin.
The apartments are a comfortable base from which to explore the vineyards and the region, to eat well, to relax and enjoy a game of golf, or as a stopover for a night or two and are available on a per night Bed and Breakfast basis, for a weekend, or on a Self-Catering basis for a week or two.
Beaune is not just a town but also an excellent Burgundy wine of the same name, best tried with lunch at any number of restaurants in the area. The town centre is tiny, a circular boulevard that runs along the ancient ramparts packed with a dense maze of narrow streets, which have hardly changed since the 18th century. Its affluence has always been synonymous with wine and the annual wine auction in the splendid Hospices de Beaune in November is a major event. Dijon is 30 minutes from here, Lyon 90 minutes, Paris roughly 2h30.
All the apartment have balconies overlooking the gardens, an open plan living room with a flat screen television, wi-fi Internet access, a dining area and a corner kitchen, a bedroom with either a double or two single beds and a bathroom with shower.
The kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave and hob and a coffee maker. There is a double sofa bed and the larger apartments have a small bedroom with bunk beds. Breakfast can be provided on request on a daily basis for those self catering, delivered to the apartment.
Burgundy is as famous for its food as for its wine, so you can find restaurants ranging from small family auberges to gastronomic almost anywhere you go.
The indoor pool is heated and the sauna can take up to six people. Outside are a boules pitch and a children’s play area, we have bicycles, there are tennis courts and the golf course is a short walk.
The Beaune-Levernois Golf Club has a well designed 18-hole golf course and a 9-hole course and practice green, is open all year round and welcomes both experienced golfers and beginners. We offer a golfing package to include accommodation in an apartment and green fees for parties of between 2 and 25 people.
The Côte de Beaune vineyards begin just to the north of the town at Aloxe-Corton and gets off to a great start with red and white Corton and the white Corton-Charlemagne, which at its best can rival the queen of white Burgundies, Montrachet. Tucked away in a valley behind the hills of Corton is the pretty little village of Pernard-Vergelesses, which gives its name to a little known wine that is outstanding and which, for that reason, is very good value. Volany, Monthelie, Auxeu-Duresses, Santenay, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and Rully are other wine villages worth visiting. Their wines are best sampled with a good lunch in the village itself, though they can also be tasted in the old honeycombed cellars in Beaune.
Dijon has almost become synonymous with mustard, as well as for Kir, dazzling food shops, several legendary restaurants and for its splendid architecture. The Rue de la Liberté is the main shopping area with elegant clothes and shoe shops and gourmet specialities. Number 32 is the famous Grey-Poupon Mustard shop, Number 16 is Mulot et Petitjean, the shop for pains d'épices, spiced breads and every imaginable kind of cake. A food event no one should miss is the market in Les Halles every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.
Saulieu has always been a gastronomic stop and at least one visit to master chef de cuisine Bernard Loiseau's restaurant, La Côte d'Or, is a must. They say that with an early start, Parisians can make Saulieu for lunch and Lyon for dinner. Around the town, the thickly wooded landscape is dotted with bridle paths leading to unexpected glades and picnic areas as well as a trout filled lake.
