help with day trips from beaune

Jump to last reply

I am planning 4 nights in Burgundy Nov 10-14 this year.

Have been using Michelin green guide and had planned day trip to south burgundy, and 1 day up to Vezelay and Fontaney abbey + maybe a chateau.

However have run into a few small issues. Nov 11 was hoping to have full day to do Vezelay + Fontaney but now cannot start until noon as signed up for wine tour that we are keen to do and that was the only day that works for it.

Chateau's all seem to close after Nov 11th.

So a few quick questions:

1. How is Vezelay at night? Would it be interesting to walk around at that time or bad idea?
2. Are any of the following chateau's worth seeing 'from the outside' (ie are there gates that you wouldn't even be able to see anything?) Tanalay, Ancy-le-franc, Cormatin, Bazoches if we cannot squeeze them in before closing Nov 11th?

thanks for your help!
