Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Burgundy

Burgundy is a region in France that is famous for its wines and its history. Located in east-central France, it is bordered by Franche-Compte, Champagne, and the Rhone Alpes, and is a green, fertile area, perfect for farming. The region is full of hills and valleys, making a stunning, sweeping landscape full of fields and, of course, vineyards.

If you are looking for a place to tour around and drink endless amounts of good quality wine, then Burgundy is the place for you. The best vineyards can be found in the Cotes de Nuits and Cotes de Beaune areas, where you will find not only delicious wine, but also magnificent estates that offer tours of the vineyards, cellars, and of the wine museums.

Burgundy is not just the top destination for wine lovers. It is also a region rich with history. The capital of the region is Dijon, and it is here that you will find the old French streets and town houses built from local stone centuries ago. Find out more about the town's history and dukedom here, by visiting the Palace of the Duke of Burgundy. There are also a number of Gothic buildings, such as the Cathedral of Benigne.

If you want to stay in a hostel in Burgundy, then you'll be happy to know there are a number of them spread out through the many beautiful towns and villages across the region. A hostel beside the canal, for example, will allow you to view the life of those who live on it, simple yet hard working, whilst a hostel in the famous fortified towns and villages, such as Montreal or Avallon, will offer you some excellent and authentic examples of Burgundy’s culture and history right outside your room window.

Wherever you decide to find a hostel, they are dotted throughout the region. Better yet, the region's hostels are also quite affordable. One room for one person for a night costs around the same as a decent bottle of wine. Of course, since this is France, it's not a bad idea to pick up a bottle too while you're at it, and share with your new hostel roommates. Or, you can go off to find a beautiful French dish to enjoy it with.
