Burgundy is France’s wine cellar – a vino-lover’s place of pilgrimage, where glasses are never empty on a stroll among the vineyards. Offering fine wine and food, the region’s hotel scene joins in the merriment – these top places are all bookable with Culture Trip.

You don’t have to be an oenophile to like Burgundy, but it helps. One of the world’s most famous wine-growing regions, this east-central corner of France is fuelled by pinot noir, chardonnay and chablis – and the accompanying boeuf bourguignon (regional beef stew) isn’t bad either. The hotels here live up to Burgundy’s reputation for indulging – whether you are ensconced in a 16th-century castle or making a stopover at a riverside inn, local vin and delicious grub are always close at hand.

It bears the name of a famous chef, but a stay at this Saulieu-based hotel is really all about the wine cellar. One of the finest in all of Burgundy, it’s packed with 15,000 bottles featuring 900 different labels. For those with an encyclopedic knowledge of the region’s famous vintages there’s also a small “wine library”, where hotel guests can buy wine by the glass and sommeliers suggest the best pairing with your meal.

No need to check where the nearest golf course is when you stay at Golf Chateau de Chailly – it has 18 holes right outside your window. Starting life as a 16th-century castle in the heart of Burgundy, Chateau de Chailly was bought by a Japanese investor who carried out a complete renovation, added the golf course and opened a four-star hotel in 1990. The 19th hole here is the inner courtyard of the Restaurant l’Armançon, where you can sip top wines while discussing birdies and eagles.

In a 19th-century winegrower’s mansion, the adjoining gourmet restaurant at Hostellerie Cèdre & Spa is every bit as eye-catching as the hotel itself. Exceptionally good grub is one of the many indulgences at this Beaune favourite, tucked away in a garden. Rooms blend tradition and modernity, including super-comfortable beds that feel like a warm hug, a lounge bar with a fireplace and a spa in a vaulted stone cellar.

With each of its rooms named after a Burgundian village or Grand Cru wine – Chablis, Clos Vougeot, Romanée Conti, Charmes Chambertin – Hôtel Le Cep celebrates everything that’s good about the region. And that includes its history. The hotel is made up of two private mansions with historical 16th-century courtyards. If staying in a room named after a wine gives you a craving for that sweet nectar, head to the cosy bar where the barman will suggest a regional Cru that you can sip by the fireplace.

    Dating back to 1857, the building that’s home to Hôtel Oceania Le Jura Dijon has been given a thorough upgrade without taking away its period charm. So, while you can marvel at the old-school Burgundy stonework and wrought iron throughout the hotel, you can return to the present century with Italian-style walk-in showers, a pool covered with a glass roof looking out over the garden and a bar that’s generously stocked with local wines.

    If sprawling chateaux with swanky rooms so big that your voice echoes isn’t your speed, make a note of the fun, three-star Nota Bene in Montceau-les-Mines. Rooms can be snug but feature fabulous interior design – whether it’s a drawing of a huge leaping koi on the wall or a beautifully tiled bathroom. The restaurant, with its leaf-print wallpaper and glowing blue bar – complete with a cellar featuring wines from regions across France – is just as much of a treat.

    When chef Frédéric Doucet called his restaurant/hotel Maison Doucet, he meant it literally. The culinary star was born in this very building in Charolles and has followed in the footsteps of his parents who used to run it as an eatery and an inn. Given the personal connection, everything here is made with love: the Michelin-starred restaurant prepares dishes that showcase everything the region has to offer, including edible flowers, Charolais beef, fish from the local river and vegetables from Doucet’s own garden.
