Burgund hält, was es verspricht
Schon die Anreise mit dem Zug (speziell TGV) war schon spannend, es hat alles wunderbar geklappt. Übrigens bevorzugen wir nach Möglichkeit immer die Anreise mit der Bahn. Die Wanderkarten mit einem guten Maßstab lagen im 1. Hotel für uns bereit. Für das Hotel Dieu in Beaune haben wir uns viel Zeit genommen, es ist wirklich zu empfehlen. Das Info-Heftchen sollte mal aktualisiert werden. Das Märchenschloss La Rochepot ist nämlich zu! Sehr zu unserem Leidwesen. Das Schloss in Rully war ebenfalls nicht zu besichtigen. Mit dem Wetter hatten wir Glück, noch wärmer hätte es nicht sein sollen. Das Hotel Athanor in Beaune sollte erst wieder nach der Renovierung angeboten werden. Das Hotel de la Halle in Nolay war unserer Meinung nach das Beste der Wanderwoche.
