Bordeaux, Burgundy & Paris recommendations

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodorites,
We are planning a visit to France late September this year. So far, this is our itinerary for a 15 day trip:

Friday - traveling
Sat - Fly from Paris to Bordeaux- get in noon- rent a car - drive to St. Emilion
Sun-St. Emilion
Mon- Bordeaux
Tue- Bordeaux - drive to Cognac?
Wed- Bordeaux - return rental car
Thur-Bordeaux/fly to Dijon
Fri - Dijon - day trip?
Sat- Dijon- train to Beaune
Sun-Dijon
Mon-Dijon
Tues-Dijon/TGV train to Paris (3rd visit to Paris)
Wed-Paris
Thur-Paris - Giverney (Monet's Garden)
Fri-Paris
Sat-Paris - Versailles
Sun-Fly home

Background: In our 50's, loves to travel, enjoys good food and wine/cognac, architecture, art, farmers markets, scenery, hiking, biking, 3-4 star hotels accommodations, and blending in and getting to know the locals. We have been to Paris & South of France (Nice, Antibes, St. Raphael, St. Tropez, Cannes, St. Jean Cap Ferrat, Menton, Villafrance), Provence (Avignon, Arles, Aix, Cassis, St. Remy, Les Baux), Annecy, and now we are excited to visit Bordeaux and the Burgundy regions for the first time.

Would appreciate recommendations for hotels & restaurants for St. Emilion, Bordeaux & Paris (Left Bank area). Already have plans to rent an apartment in Dijon.

We plan to rent a car for the Bordeaux area (car rental/airport?) and plan to take the train from Dijon for day trips. We decided to fly from Bordeux to Dijon as we didn't want to spend 7 hours driving there.

Thank you in advance for letting me know about the highlights of your trip you can recommend to us.
