Following the roads of the Dukes of Burgundy
Auxois, a region reputed for its rich green pastures, produces meat of the highest quality from the breed Charolaise. It is certainly one of the most impressionably beautiful regions, as the Medieval city of Semur-en-Auxois testifies with its pink granite rock, while cascading houses and gardens dominate the valley of Armançon. At Saulieu, the gastronomes paradise, we invite you to taste the regional specialities lovingly cooked by its great chefs.
Saulieu, paradis de la gastronomie, nous invite à déguster les spécialités bourguignonnes savamment mijotées par ses grands chefs.
Perched on a granite spur or ambushed in the bottom of a valley, castles, churches, convents and other ancient memorials are legion in Auxois. Semur-en-Auxois, faithful to its image of pearl of Auxois, possesses one of the most beautiful churches of Burgundy, described as a miniature replica of Notre-Dame de Paris.
