We visited two typically French markets. One very tiny one in a nearby village and one much larger (with very tempting wares) in the city of Beaune.
The nearby villages and towns were all full of character and very well kept. I became hooked on snapping signs, roofs, cockerels and floral displays.
There were some splendid examples of multi-coloured Burgundy roofs. The first is of the Hospices of Beaune and the second is a town hall in Meursault. Yes a town hall - how impressive!
We spent a lot of time walking, cycling and enjoying the countryside. I got my chance to swim in a very natural setting at a local plage. Swimming with dragonflies and ducks was heaven. The water had cold and warm spots just like swimming in the sea... bliss. This plage is used by a lot of nearby campers and was free (and clean).
As it was hot and far from the coast finding water became quite an obsession. We also visited a natural waterfall although the water was more of a spray than a fall.
Not on my list but quite exciting was wine tasting. I never knew wine could be so tasty. We did treat ourselves to a sample of a local wine (for Christmas) as we bought no other souvenirs.
Ah, the tastes, smells and views of Burgundy. It's lovely to revisit them and I hope you don't mind me sharing.
