Close to the hotel – Nuits-Saint-Georges

Fabulous tourist destination in Burgundy

village-nuits-saint-georges

South of Vosne-Romanée, close to the hotel, Nuits-Saint-Georges is one of the most famous places in Burgundian winemaking. Occupied since the prehistoric Magdalenian era, the site was then inhabited by a Celtic tribe before becoming Gallo-Roman and then seeing even further development during the Middle Ages. To discover the oldest relics from this rich history, visit the Historical and Archaeological Museum (Musée d’d'Histoire et d'Archéologie), which houses numerous dug-up artefacts such as headstones from the Bolard Necropolis and Merovingian furniture. You can also wander along the town’s streets to appreciate the numerous buildings spanning all different centuries.

Close to the Office du Tourisme in the centre of Nuits-Saint-Georges, discover one of the greatest bell towers in Burgundy. This historic monument was built in the 17th century and is capped with a campanile with eight arches. Also visit the 13th-century Église Saint-Symphorien church, a true architectural masterpiece combing Roman and Byzantine styles, plus the more recent Église Saint-Denis whose bell tower is topped with a pretty, colourful roof. You can also go and visit some of the local producers and try some of the divine AOC Nuits-Saint-Georges wines. There’s a wide variety of reds and whites with varied and generous flavours.
