Hi, my husband and I are planning a 3-4 day trip to Burgundy driving on after a 3 day visit to the Loire Valley. This is our first trip so need lots of advice and input. So far, this is what I've come up with:-
- We're hoping to stay at Moulin Renaudiots in Autun.
- 12/7/11 (Tue) - Market day in Dijon. Chateauneuf en Auxois &
St. Madelaine in the afternoon.
- 13/7/11 (Wed) - full day guided wine tour. We like our reds and would like to sample some grand and premier cru wines. Any recommendations?
- 14/7/11 (Thu) - Lunch at Maison Lameloise & L’Abbaye de Fontenay later in the afternoon.
The next part of our trip is on to Milan, Italy. At this stage, we're debating whether to drop off the rental car in Dijon and catch an overnight train to Milan (can someone tell me if the train service is reliable?) or our other option is to drive back to Paris CDG airport and catch a flight out to Milan. The train option is sounding more time efficient at the moment.
Any comments/input are most welcome.
