The capital city of Burgundy, Dijon, will likely be your point of arrival if you decide to head southeast from Paris into the region’s world-class vineyards. Thanks to a range of architecture, dating from medieval to modern-day, there are styles to suit any taste whether it be traditional, contemporary or somewhere in between.

A beautiful blend of historic and modern, Anouk’s apartment offers exposed beam ceilings, wood floors, and stone walls combined with industrial furnishings and touches of copper and gold. The real draw here is the rooftop terrace, complete with a day bed and dining area where you can enjoy an aperitif in the sun. It earns bonus points for being air conditioned – a feature hard to come by in France but one that is certainly welcome during the hot summers in Burgundy.

This outdoor-inspired apartment conjures up the smell of spring and the sensation of a cool breeze. With real plants dotted throughout and a colour palette of white and green, it’s fitting that this bright and fresh unit rests in a quiet area alongside a river just a 10-minute walk from town. As a native to Dijon, Superhost Julie is delighted to offer guests her top addresses to sample Burgundian fare and the must-see sites in the city.
Situated just steps from the Duke’s Palace of Burgundy (Palais des Ducs), one of Dijon’s top attractions, this flat that makes up part of a 17th century home was recently renovated and decorated to perfection. High ceilings, a soft wash of pastel colours, and antique furnishings make the space cosy and romantic. If you plan to do some countryside vineyard visits and wine tastings either by car or bike, the unit’s host, Maud, offers free parking about 200 metres from the house as well as bicycle storage.
Sandra’s pad exudes luxury at every turn and the stylish, but not stuffy, decor will make you feel right at home. The lower-level master suite bedroom, set beneath the white stone arches of a typical Burgundian cave, allows you to keep cool while you sleep even in the midst of summer. When you want to warm up, pop into the infrared sauna in the bathroom. Who needs to stay at a hotel with a spa when you can have it this good at home?
This intimate nook is the ideal romantic getaway while staying close to the core.

Guests also get the backyard at their disposal, complete with a bistro table where you can dine al fresco.
