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.
