Need info on smoking in Dijon area

Jump to last reply

We will be visiting around Dijon and the Burgundy area for a few days in the summer of 2014, and I am trying to plan far in advance because I am extremely sensitive to cigarette smoke, and I know that this may present some challenges. All the info I can find on smoking in France is about Paris, and thus I don't know if the situation is as bad outside of Paris.

I know the basic laws, but need some specifics- any info is very, very welcome!

- Obviously, we will have to find enclosed dining, since we won't be able to sit outside. How difficult is it to find restaurants that, in the summer, *don't* have windows or open doors that open on to a smoking terrace? Is it at all common to find restaurants that are totally enclosed or do not have windows that open into smoking areas?

- In smaller villages, are the "no smoking" laws often openly flouted?

- Does the Les Halles covered market in Dijon prohibit smoking?

- Do tours that are primarily in outdoor areas (like castles or caves) typically prohibit smoking?

- Any tips about restaurants or other areas that are reliably smoke-free will be greatly appreciated!
