Is this the end of the world?

or how to climb in one of the most beautiful climbing sites in France

Here is a place that lives up to its name. Between vineyards and meadows, the limestone cliffs of Cormot form a breathtaking natural cirque. Here, the hiker is king and the climber is happy among the 346 routes available, rated from 4b to 7c, from 25m to 45m. If the site is accessible all year round, spring and summer are the perfect seasons to practice climbing in this listed site, which is quite unique, it must be said. Note that the cliffs at the end of the world offer different orientations which allow you to escape the summer sun, which could be a bit too strong.

The little practical plus: Le Bout du Monde is directly accessible from Les Cabottes via the greenway in the direction of Nolay.

Hike to the top of the vineyards

or how to have a 360° view on the Hautes Côtes de Beaune

Accessible to Sunday walkers, this is a walk that should also be popular with more experienced walkers. After passing through the charming village of Santenay-le-haut, it is the Church of Saint-Jean that first catches the eye. Quite imposing and sumptuously restored, it seems almost unreal in the middle of the vineyards that surround it. Then, looking up, we discover the famous three crosses at the foot of which the hike will lead us. Between refreshing undergrowth and grandiose panoramas of the Santenay vineyard, we hardly feel the climb and we have already reached the summit.

The little plus for the gourmets: you can take a snack in your bundle to fully enjoy the walk – moreover, we can make one for you on request, we say that, we say nothing… Our favourite spot to picnic? Just after the 3 crosses, take the small steep path that joins the undergrowth. A large, soft meadow is open to you, with a breathtaking view, all in an Olympian calm.

The little extra for the more athletic: you can extend the loop to walk to Chassagne-Montrachet after climbing to the top of Mont de Sène.

Practical information on the Trois-Croix is available here – map also available at the reception of Les Cabottes.

Cycling on the greenway

Cycling on the greenway

or how to walk through the vineyard in slow mode

Reserved for cyclists and pedestrians, the greenway (which is a former railway line) links Les Cabottes to Santenay and then Beaune, passing through many renowned wine-producing villages such as Meursault and Pommard. In just two pedal strokes, you will find yourself surrounded by vineyards in absolute peace and quiet, as cars are not allowed to disturb your peace of mind. Our favourite feature on the way? The absolutely splendid view of the vineyards that appears as you approach Santenay. With the Trois-Croix mountain dominating and the cabottes (n.b. the small stone houses) which point the end of their roofs at each bend, the landscape is worthy of a real postcard changing with the seasons. It is not for nothing that this cycle route is called the “Voie des Vignes”…
