Short cycling trip from Auxerre. Burgundy by bike and Chablis vineyards

Carte Sud de la Bourgogne à vélo

 

This cycling trip over a few days will introduce you to the Auxerre region and Chablis wines. In addition to renowned vineyards, you will have the opportunity to cycle through the heart of Burgundy rich in heritage: abbeys, castles, medieval villages and fortified towns.

Chablis is a charming village and an appellation which extends over 19 surrounding villages.


Highlights of the stay:

  • Auxerre, city of Art and History
  • One of the most famous vineyards in the world
  • Heritage
  • Authentic villages

 

Day 1: Arrival in Auxerre

You will be welcomed at your hotel to receive your travel diary and some practical information for the smooth running of your cycling trip in Burgundy. Dinner is not included but don’t hesitate to ask our local partner for some advice. We recommend a walk in the heart of the old town. Its Gothic-style cathedral and Saint Germain Abbey are worth the detour. The monastic complex dating from the 9th century is remarkably preserved with its crypts where one can see one of the oldest wall paintings discovered in France.

Night in Auxerre.

 

Day 2: from Auxerre to Chablis - 37 km

The route begins in the countryside, in the middle of fields. The first stop is Pontigny. Discover the Cistercian Abbey, the largest and one of the most beautiful remaining in France.

You resume your escapade through the Chablis vineyards before arriving at your charming hotel, located in the heart of the village. Chablis is famous for its white wines made from Burgundy's iconic grape variety, Chardonnay. The best is not necessarily to talk about it, a tasting is planned at the end of the day.
Night in Chablis.

 

Day 3: from Chablis to Auxerre via Irancy - 37 km

The route takes you to Irancy where we change the name. Irancy is a red wine made from Pinot Noir (another emblematic grape variety of Burgundy) which has the particularity of incorporating up to 10% of César, a traditional local grape variety.

After Irancy, Saint Bris les Vineux is another known and recognized wine-growing village. The program continues on small hilly country roads with pretty viewpoints and via picturesque villages. Possibility of visiting the Caves de Bailly, a large producer of crémant which has installed its cellars in an old quarry. You recover the Yonne and the Canal du Nivernais to reach Auxerre.

Night in Auxerre.
