      Getting to Flavigny

      Flavigny-sur-Ozerain Feb 19, 2015 at 3:39 PM

      Hello there! My son and I will be in France soon and we would like to go to flavigny. We can get to Dijon from Paris by train and from there, go to Flavigny. I was looking for tours(we love tours...more than exploring on our own) and found a half day from Dijon to Flavigny(and other villages around it) by FRANCE.COM. Never heard about "France.com" tours and was wondering if anyone knows about them...or any other tour company(tours to Flavigny and surroundings). The other option is to rent a car...we go to France very often, but never did rent a car. I am not that carefree and always super afraid of getting lost, road condition, traffic, crazy drivers, how to find a gas station, etc. If anyone knows about roads and how simple is to drive(probably it is) from Dijon to Flavigny, please let me know. Thanks!!!!

      Combining wine tasting with accommodation

      Beaune Feb 8, 2015 at 8:46 PM

      Was wondering if anyone has good tips on vineyard hotels in or near Beaune? We only have one overnight there and would like to maximize our wine tasting opportunities. Would it be better to stay in a cozy hotel in Beaune and go for a town-based wine-tasting (perhaps paired with dinner) or would it be best to stay at a vineyard and experience the wine there?
      Any recommendations would be highly appreciated! Thanks.

      Barging in Burgundy

      Bourgogne Jan 31, 2015 at 7:48 AM

      Dear Friends,

      I hope you are all doing well! I have a question regarding barging in Burgundy. I am planning to spend a week or two this summer barging with wife and baby along with 2 sets of grandparents. I am reasonably early in the process, but have had some advice which suggests starting at Joigny and self piloting (grandparent is an experienced boater) a penichette boat.
      Current options might be:

      1. Joigny round trip. Yonne and Canal Nivernais?
      2. Joigny to Montbard via Canal du Bourgogne

      I wonder if people have any advice on this idea. Is Joigny a good place to start? Are these Canals nice? with good spots to stop off and enjoy a stroll, food, sites?

      Any other suggestions? As it's summer I'd like to avoid the most trafficked spots (I think Canal du Midi)

      Is there anything else I should know? Or any good resources or companies?

      Many thanks! It's nice to be around again...

      Best Wishes,

      Giampiero

    • Is it possible to go Taize by myself from 28/12/2014 to 11/01/2015?

      Taizé Dec 25, 2014 at 7:03 AM

      Hello,

      I am currently thinking of going to Taize for 2 weeks by myself. However, I wonder the following:
      1. Is it a good idea to Taize by yourself? (i.e. not in a group?) Is it to join other people in workshops, talks, meetings?
      2. Is it possible to during 28/12/2014 to 11/01/2015? On the online registration page, it says there are meetings all year, except from 25/12 until 06/01. What does this mean? Is Taize closed then?

      Thank you very much!!!!!
      And Merry Christmas to you all!

      Vineyard accommodation

      Bourgogne Nov 30, 2014 at 10:59 PM

      Despite researching the subject, both on VT and the web, I'm struggling to get a clear picture of accommodation at a vineyard in Bourgogne. I'll only be there overnight, so I'd prefer to combine my accommodation and wine tasting. Preferably something close enough to Beaune to go wandering around the illuminated buildings in the evening, but will be perfectly happy staying at a scenic nearby village such as Meursalt or Pommard, or even north of Beaune.
      Anyone with wonderful experiences at such a place?
      Advice would be highly appreciated! Thanks.

Now it so happens that my flight does not overlap well with the bus transfer or  train and so I have a layover of more than 5 hours. Are there any other buses going to Taize except voyage clunuysois . I guess it being a Sunday, the train and bus service is very limited.

We are 4 adults travelling and haven't been to France other than a Paris trip, which was wonderful. We have been put off driving in France by several forum comments, recent legislation etc. Chiddes appears to be very remote.
      We believe we can register for advanced tickets and have done so are crossing our fingers we get an email prompt for the main journey.

      We had hoped to train from Paris to Luzy then get a smaller train or taxi from Luzy to Chiddes.
