Burgundy has something on offer whatever the season. In spring, summer, autumn and winter, this charming region is showcased in different ways.
In spring all the flowers are in bloom, in autumn the golden shades are worth the detour, the Morvan is a refreshing place to cool off in the warm summer, and the cosy little hideaways across Burgundy are great places to warm you up in winter.
Come to Burgundy in autumn!
The vineyards, hills and meadows bathe in the warm sunlight and take on the shades of autumn. The air is still filled with the scent of the grape harvest, replaced little by little with the aromas of the soil and mushrooms.

Winter will be a warm and cosy one in Burgundy!
Winter is beginning to settle in Burgundy. The sun pierces through the white smoke from the anti-frost candles that have been lit throughout the vineyard. The temperatures are dropping, and nature is going into hibernation.
This is the perfect time to experience the warm hospitality from the locals of Burgundy: relax in a spa in Joigny, in front of the fireplace in a hotel or in a gite in the Morvan, or with a glass of wine at the Saint-Vincent Tournante event.
