Staying in Beaune - should we rent a car???

We are planning on visiting Beaune for two nights. We are wondering if we should rent a car to use for exploring during our stay in Beaune.

I thought it might be fun to take the train from Paris to Dijon, rent a car in Dijon, and make our way down to Beaune over the course of a day, and then spend the next day driving around Beaune to the different wineries and stuff. Otherwise, we could just do a bike tour or something. The Burgundy Discovery tour is booked on the days we are going to be there.

What do you recommend?

Beaune is a lovely town but if you are there for at least 2 nights a car is the best way to get the most out of the area.

Having said that the roads to the wine villages are quiet so if you enjoy cycling a bike would be a very enjoyable way of seeing the villages and countryside.

Some names that don't need a reservation(but some may need a car) and are all excellent:

Champy have a great selection of most wine villages and are located within the walls of Beaune itself. Well worth a visit.

Lots of really interesting wine shops in Beaune – a really good one just along from Les Chevalliers restaurant on Rue D’Alsace – can’t miss it.

Domaine Rollin, Pernand Vergelesses – in the village and produce superb wines and friendly visit here.

This one is a reliable family producer who have a cellar in centre of Nuits St Georges - good English spoken here if you need it :

Interesting cellars also that they will take you in for a tasting.

Domaine de la Renarde ANDRE DELORME

2 Rue de la République

71150 Rully

Excellent selection of local wines and good tasting given. V.Friendly.

This is worth a visit for any or all of three reasons :

Excellent wines – restaurant and a museum of transport that is really worth a look.

Collection of Motor bikes , sports cars & even aeroplanes in the grounds

I I think your idea of renting a car in Dijon and staying near or in Beaune is a good one.

renting a car in dijon is a good idea.drive south to beaune & use the route de grand cru if you are not in a hurry. its well signposed & will take you through all the wine villages such as gevrey chambertin,chambolle musigny,vosne romanee & nuits-st-george.

the following day you could go south of beaune, again using the route de grand cru & visit pommard,volnay,meursault,chassagne&puligny montrachet & santenay.
