What you'll do

Dijon to Semur-en-Auxois. On the day of our tour, and we will meet at the train station, and take a day trip to Semur-en-Auxois, une ville médiévale. We will take a luxury bus that specifically goes through the French Countryside. We'll get to know each other as we're safely being driven to our destination. Most people have never heard of this village. I certainly hadn't before I met my husband. Semur-en-Auxois is a Fortified Medieval City that dates back to the 11th century. We will arrive and I will take to around the city and explain each of the castle's towers, share a little royal historical gossip, and what real day to day life was like in medieval times. This is a fun and unique experience, because it is not on the tourist destination path. This Gothic Paradise is truly for those who adore fairy tales, and imagine days of long ago. If you like Gothic architecture, history, paintings, and sculptures this is a great place of reflection. After a wonderful promenade, we'll have a wine tasting, followed by a traditional French cuisine lunch on a beautiful historical street. After we'll finish the day with the last walk around this beautiful kingdom for a few more selfies. Then catch the bus back to Dijon, a relaxing ending from a magical day.

Meet your host, Nikki

Host on Airbnb since 2014
  • Identity verified
My name is Nikki. I'm from San Francisco & now an American expat living and working in Burgundy as a Licensed Wine Importer/Exporter & Cert. Sommelier. I started doing Airbnb in my off season I enjoyed sharing recommendations of dining experiences & key points around the region. I got more jazzed by offering customized experiences, taking guests to winemakers/clients for wine tastings. As my husband is a sculptor/architect, he showed me more about the hidden gems of historical architecture which additionally enhanced my regional tours by including ancient ruins that date back to the 11th-13th Gothic & 14th-17th century Renaissance. For the last 5 years, we've lived in the charming Medieval village of Semur-en Auxois, France. During this time, I started Gothic Wine Tours! I'm absolutely intoxicated with the magic of Burgundy. Join me!
