Bourgogne in early spring (2015)

In my youth I spent several holidays staying with an old friend of the family in a village near Cluny in the Bourgogne region of France. From Geneva the Sâone valley and the rolling hills west of Mâcon are only a couple of hours by car (caravan…). So we took off for a short trip in the early spring and had an enjoyable time looking at vineyards and castles, walking through some towns and villages and stopping for good meals at rural restaurants. As the tour guides would say: recommended!
