Hotels En Route
With some of the main motorways in Europe passing through Burgundy, there are some ideal stopping off places as you travel through the region. Many of the hotels near the autoroutes belong to one of the chains which provide functional, good value accommodation to a set formula so you know what you are getting, with no surprises. Well run, friendly service, usually on the outskirts of town, there is free parking and often a restaurant. Ideal for tourists and business travellers alike.

Campanile is great value; Kyriad, also part of the same group as Campanile, is more upmarket; Ibis is always sound and Novotel is at the upper end of the pricing. Hotels in the Accor group which includes Ibis, Novotel, Mercure, Sofitel and Pullman brands are all giving free wi-fi connections now as standard.

 By Air

If you are flying to France, Paris’s two airports are the nearest and most convenient hubs for Burgundy. But you’ll still need to hire a car or take the train to reach your final destination.


 By Rail

If travelling without a car, Eurostar operate the train service from London St Pancras, Ebbsfleet or Ashford in Kent to Lille, Brussels or Paris, with easy onward connections. The journey under the English Channel takes 20 minutes and the service is frequent and hassle-free. No fears of a bumpy crossing with this method of travel.

Euro Tunnel:
The Channel Tunnel linking the United Kingdom to France has revolutionised the crossing of this short stretch of water. This crossing between Folkestone and Calais takes 35 minutes – there are no worries about weather conditions and bumpy crossings in the Channel. You drive on the train at one end and before you know it, it is time to move off again at your destination. During the journey you can get out of your car to stretch your legs along the walkways on either side of the vehicles.

Regional Train Service:
Main towns have a regional train service – a leisurely way to travel and see the beautiful countryside.
