Hôtel Wilson has a very special location in the old town district of Dijon, perfect for setting out to explore the history of the former Duchy of Burgundy and its wine-growing hinterland.
Housed in a 17th century coaching inn, this 3-star hotel sweeps visitors off their feet, the obvious charm of its half-timbered facade evocative of the architecture typical of Burgundy’s houses. Inside you can discover all the historical cachet and cosy comfort of a bourgeois dwelling. Exposed beams, old stonework and period furniture - the rustic refinement of the decoration creates an authentic, warm atmosphere that will tempt you to put your feet up there and then. The 27 tastefully-decorated bedrooms overlook the pretty interior courtyard or the famous Place Wilson in the heart of the town centre. Dijon's finest historical sites are within easy reach of visitors from here!
The hotel is keen to showcase the Côte d’Or’s full range of attractions, which is why it also offers residents out-of-the-box themed breaks. The region is bursting with a thousand curiosities that will leave you wide-eyed, starting with its vines! Excursions are organised along the Route des Grands Crus introducing visitors to the history of the local wines. What’s on the agenda? A tasting of great Burgundy wines alongside a tour of Château du Clos de Vougeot, the crown jewel of the vineyards and ancient lair of the brotherhood of the Chevaliers du Tastevin. In this mythical spot, the old presses, vat room and great storeroom set the scene as in the 12th century to retrace the history of winegrowing in the region.
Taking part in these short getaways also means immersing yourself fully in the locality’s superb landscapes. The outings on the itinerary will take you from the gentle slopes of the Côte de Nuits to the small villages tucked away in the forests of the Hautes Côtes de Nuits.
Once back at the hotel, you can take the wine experience a stage further in the bar. The drinks menu spotlights locally-produced craft beers and Burgundy wines, which you can sip in peace and quiet as you take the time to enjoy the wealth of riches offered up by Burgundy’s vineyards over a drink.
