But the Côte-d'Or also has a rich medieval past, as shown by the monuments of Beaune and Dijon. Among the outings proposed for sportsmen, the department offers you more than 8 golf courses. And don't forget the 320 kilometers of bike paths and greenways. Relaxation and well-being are also on the agenda thanks to the numerous spas in the selected hotels. Nature lovers will not miss the opportunity to go for a walk in the Morvan natural park to visit its large forests and lakes. This park offers a few hotels with spas to rest after outdoor activities.Whether in the city or in the countryside, the Côte-d'Or will give you wonderful moments of relaxation.

Hotel spa stay in Côte d'Or

After selecting your room and suite in a spa hotel in Côte-d'Or, move on to the next step. It is time for you to choose the outings you will be able to do during your getaway. We present you with a panel of walks, castles, Michelin-starred gastronomic restaurants and original activities. There is no lack of choice between the cities of Dijon and Beaune or the charming villages of Flavigny-sur-Ozerain, Semur-en-Brionnais, the wine village of Santenay or Saint-Romain.

 

Romantic stay in Côte d'Or

 

Start your getaway in Côte-d'Or with Wine tour in 2CV. During 3 hours, you will explore the vineyards and discover the history of wines with a local driver guide. Of course, on the way, a stop in a winery for a cellar visit and a wine tasting are planned.

Continue your vacation with a picnic on the Route des Grands Crus de Bourgogne, on top of the cliffs of Baulme-la-Roche, at the foot of the cirque du bout du monde near Nolay or in the Darcy garden in Dijon or in the Parc de la Bouzaize in Beaune. We recommend that you visit the small stores of the producers and winegrowers of the area to compose your picnic basket.

Alternatively, we recommend that you rent an electric boat from Saint-Jean-de-Losne. You will discover an enchanting setting along the water.

Finally, end your weekend with a wine and cheese workshop in Dijon or a wine tasting course in a Côte d'Or estate.

 

Wellness weekend in Côte d'Or

 

The Côte-d'Or is full of places to disconnect and recharge your batteries. Here are some places that will allow you to escape from your daily life.

Start with a session of sylvotherapy, in other words a "hug with the trees" in the heart of the national forest park, the 11th national park of France. You will enjoy all the benefits of this ancestral practice and the forest. You will be able to reduce your stress and boost your energy.

For a relaxing outing with family or friends, go to the Amphitrite aquatic center in Montbard. There, in addition to finding various pools, you will be able to bask in a sauna, hammam, jacuzzi or sensory showers.

If you prefer to relax in a spa area of a prestigious hotel, we have a few addresses to present to you. We recommend you to push the doors of the Nuxe spa of the Hostellerie Cèdre & Spa in Beaune and to embark on a sensory journey with a facial, a body treatment or a massage. You can also continue this moment of relaxation in the private Jacuzzi and the hammam. Similarly, the Spa - Chateaux de Cîteau - La Cueillette hotel in Meursault offers you a wellness center of no less than 500 m² with red fruit treatments (a unique concept in France) and numerous facilities such as a heated indoor pool, a rest room, a jacuzzi, a sauna, a hammam and much more.

Finally, other starred hotels in Côte-d'Or have sumptuous relaxation areas.  We recommend the Nuxe Spa at the Château de Courban, the Villa Loiseau des Sens at the Relais Bernard Loiseau hotel in Saulieu, the spa by la Cloche at the Grand Hôtel La Cloche Dijon MGallery Collection or the Hotel Oceania Le Jura Dijon. Each of these establishments will immerse you in absolute calm. Depending on the structure you choose, you will find a jacuzzi, sauna, treatment rooms, hammam, and a tea room for example.



Heritage, culture and gastronomy in the heart of the Côte d'Or

 

The Côte-d'Or has a rich religious and wine heritage. We are not inventing anything, UNESCO has even classified two of these sites: the Abbey of Fontenay and the Climats du vignoble de Bourgogne.

Don't miss visiting vineyards, cellars and especially tasting prestigious wines. We recommend the cellars of the Château de Meursault, the Patriarche cellars in Beaune and the cellar of the Domaine Faiveley in Nuits-Saint-Georges.

Continue your escapade in museums or castles of the territory. You will discover in the least details the past and secrets of the Côte-d'Or. We recommend the Hôtel-Dieu Museum in Beaune, the Fine Arts Museum in Dijon and the MuseoParc Alésia in Alise-Sainte-Reine. Concerning castles, we recommend the Château du Clos de Vougeot, the Château de Commarin or the Château de Châteauneuf.  

Finally, during your stay or weekend, you will of course have to eat. Savor exceptional dishes in one of the gastronomic restaurants starred by the Michelin Guide. Among them, the Unique Hôtel Spa team gives a special mention to the restaurant La Côte d'Or du Relais Bernard Loiseau in Saulieu with its chef Patrick Bertron, to the restaurant William Frachot in Dijon and to the establishment La Table de Levernois in Levernois.

Now that you are more informed about this area of France and are about to go to a spa hotel in the Burgundy-Franche-Comté region, we have decided to help you by proposing a complete program for two days.

We recommend that you book a night or more in one of the rooms or suites of the Hostellerie Cèdre & Spa Beaune, a luxurious hotel in the heart of Burgundy.

They will prove to you once again that the Hostellerie Cedar & Spa Beaune is worth the detour and that the prices correspond to the services received.

 

Day 1: Visit Beaune

 

Following your first night in your spa hotel, or your arrival in the city of Beaune, we advise you to visit the Hospices de Beaune. This is the must-do activity if you are visiting the city. If you still have time, go for a walk in the alleys of the historical center or on the ramparts. Then, for lunch, we recommend you book a table in the Michelin-starred gastronomic restaurant Le Bénaton. In the afternoon, opt for a hot air balloon flight over the vineyards. You'll enjoy the view and leave with a lot of memories. At the end of the day, return to the hotel. Before dinner in the hotel restaurant, relax in the Nuxe spa. Relax in a private Jacuzzi or hammam or indulge in a facial, body treatment or massage.

 

Day 2: Visit of Dijon

 

After your night and breakfast at the hotel, we recommend that you take the road to Dijon for your second day in the Côte-d'Or. In the morning, discover the richness of the city (monuments, squares...) by following the famous owl trail. For lunch, the table of the gastronomic restaurant Loiseau des Ducs is to be discovered.  After this invigorating break, do a mustard workshop. Live a 100% Dijon experience and leave with your own mustard.

 

The Côte-d'Or is part of the Burgundy-Franche-Comté region and is the first nature and heritage destination between Paris and Lyon. In a few words to summarize, the Côte-d'Or is a panel of establishments with spa, a remarkable gastronomy and many activities of all kinds. Book a room or a suite in a charming spa hotel in this department without further delay and experience moments rich in emotions.
