Pamper your palate in the heart of magnificent Burgundy Famous Burgundy well deserves its reputation for fine wines and gourmet cuisine. Lush vineyards hug rolling hills, and quiet villages invite you to linger. Amidst a network of canals flows the majestic Saône River, the focal point of your Burgundy boat rent in France! This beautiful river ushers you into a world of pleasures, a realm that pleases the senses and soothes the soul. Wine Tasting Did you know that more than 200 million bottles of Burgundy wine are sold every year? Really! And you've got to savour some on your wine tasting cruise! Tour the Côte de Beaune vineyards! Stop by the Maison des Vins in Chalon-sur-Saône for regional wines! Nature Lovers Burgundy's rivers and canals are a rich habitat for wildlife. Along the Saône and Doubs you'll find 42 species of mammals, 30 species of fish and 160 species of birds! Watch for bee-eaters, little ringed plovers, kingfishers, golden orioles, and even the common cuckoo! Gastronomy Dining in fine restaurants should be part of your Burgundy Boating Vacations! Try a flan filled with Burgundy snails at Maison Lameloise in Chagny, a 3-star Michelin favorite. How about Idéal mâconnais, a cake made with meringue and butter cream filling? Or pain d'epices (ginger cake)? Fishing A fishing vacation in Burgundy means angling for carp, pike, zander, perch and bream. But the real lure for the passionate angler lurks in the depths of the Saône, to catch the Silurus glanis or giant catfish, try the waters near Beaune!
