Visits for children & adults
or how to get the whole family interested
Burgundy has no shortage of little treasures that should pique the curiosity of all the members of the tribe. To help you find your way around, here is a short, non-exhaustive list of our favourite activities to share:
1/ The Château de Savigny-les-Beaune and its impressive and crazy collections of cars, planes, fire trucks and other historical vehicles, all in a breathtaking setting. You can also buy the estate’s wines to round off your visit.

35 minutes by car from Les Cabottes
2/ The Fallot mustard factory in Beaune to awaken your taste buds and understand how the transformation of a small seed can lead to one of the best mustards in the world. You can also stock up on piquant sweets in the shop.

25 minutes by car from Les Cabottes, about 2 hours by electric bike.
3/ The Morvan Velorail in Cordesse to discover the beauty of green Burgundy (yes, there are not only vineyards!) with its endless forest landscapes and the smell of undergrowth that tickles your nose when the wagon flies through the air. Note that the velorail can hold a maximum of 4 people – 2 pedalling and 2 sitting behind – so it’s up to you to choose the right team!

25 minutes from Les Cabottes, with the possibility of visiting the pretty town of Autun on the way
4/ The cassissium in Nuits-Saint-Georges to learn all about this small berry so present in Burgundy (in the kir, obviously, but not only). A particularly educational and interactive visit to immerse young and old alike in the world of blackcurrants. Cocktail workshops are organised every first Friday of the month (although this is more for adults than children, as you will have understood).

5/ The MuséoParc Alésia in Alise-Sainte-Reine because there is no better way to combine history and fun activities. Between the remains to explore, the interpretation centre to discover and the food in the themed restaurant to devour, it’s a safe bet that you’ll stay there all day. Don’t hesitate to consult the exhibition calendar.
