Off for Burgundy, Lake Geneva and Brittany: What can I bring back for you?

We leave this afternoon for Burgundy, Lake Geneva and Brittany. Return Sept. 8. If anyone is planning a trip to any of these places and would like me to check out a selected hotel or keep an eye out for anything that you're thinking about, just respond with your needs and if it's in my path or just off it, I'll be happy to report back on return. We'll be in the following locales:
Annecy, Gruyere, Bern, Montreaux and surrounds, Beaune and much of the Cote d'Or, Vezelay, Flavigny, Dijon, Nantes, Gulf of Morbihan, Quimper, Roscoff, Cancale, Rennes, then home from CDG.

Sounds like a great trip. I would ask you to check out a few places, but we leave September 5. Geneva, Lyon, Beaune, Troyes, and Paris. Can't wait. Have a great time!! Been to Lyon and Beaune before, if you haven't, you'll love it!

Of those places, we're only going to Beaune. If I get a chance to set down at a computer, I'll see if I can't give you a few recs about Beaune since we'll be there before Sept. 5. Enjoy your trip.

Make sure the cheeses and ice-creams are still as good as I remember them

Be sure to have a gougere at a boulangerie. Burgundy is known for them
