Let us help you find your ideal property in Burgundy.

Whether you are looking for an old ruin to renovate, or a beautiful chateau to show off, then Burgundy has a property for you.

Prices vary greatly across the region, so we have set out below a rough price guide for each department. These can be misleading as the low volume of sales in rural areas can skew the figures. Our advice is to always speak with your local Leggett agent in Burgundy, who will be an expert on house prices in their area.

Cote d’Or – this is the most expensive of the four departments within the old region of Burgundy, with an average property price of 2,130 euros per m2. Highest prices can be found in the city of Dijon, but you will also pay a premium to be in the countryside, south of Dijon, which hosts some of the fantastic vineyards. Beaune is a popular spot with tourists and second-home owners alike.

Nievre – in contrast, Nievre has the lowest property prices in Burgundy, with an average house price of just 850 euros per m2. This is amongst the lowest in France and the ideal location to pick up a bargain holiday home.

The beautiful Saone et Loire department offers great value property too. The average price in this department is 1,230 euros per m2. Prices are lower in the west of the department, this is because, on the eastern side, you will find Macon, Cluny and Chalon sur Saone which are all incredibly popuar with both French buyers (many from Paris) and those from further afield.

Finally, the Yonne department has an average property price of 1,180 euros per m2. Prices rise in the north western sector as you get closer to Paris and Fontainebleu. Similarly, you will pay a premium to be in or around the employment hub of Auxerre.

The wines of Burgundy are amongst the most sought after in the world.

If great food and wine is what you are looking for then this is the region for you.

The climate & soil of Burgundy are the two driving forces behind the quality of grapes and the gorgeous wines that are so famous around the world. Of particular note are the red wines made from Pinot Noir grapes and the white wines made from Chardonnay.

The semi continental climate has just the right mixtures of heat, cold and rainfall to ensure that the 28,000 hectares of vineyards remain healthy and fruitful. There are four main levels in Burgundy wine classifications which are geographically focussed:
Grand Cru wines are produced in the best vineyards on the Cote d'Or, as defined by the AOC. Typically these need to be aged by at least five years and the best examples can be kept for around fifteen years. The best Grand Cru wines from Burgundy can reach many thousands of pounds - the specific vineyard is named on the label.
Premier Cru wines are the next highest classification and make up around 12% of production. They don't attract such a premium price as Grand Cru wines and are labelled with the name of the village of origin.
Village appellation wines make up around 36% of production and are produced from a blend of wines from what are seen as lesser vineyards. They will show the village name on the label and the taste can vary considerably across the region.
Finally, regional appellation wines are wines which are allowed to be produced across the whole region. The popular AOC Bourgogne comes into this category and these wines are usually best drunk straight away.
Part of the fun in living in Burgundy is discovering your own personal favourites - it's not always a matter of just picking the expensive ones either, there are some terrific bargains to be picked up if you know where to look!

Come and discover great food and world class restaurants.

The most famous foods to come out of Burgundy have to be Beef Bourguignon and Coq au Vin although the Époisses de Bourgogne cheese may run them close - it comes from a small village in the Cote d'Or and is a pungent, unpasteurised, cows milk cheese with a red/orange colour. Packaged in a distinctive round box it is washed in the local brandy and has been described as "the king of all cheeses".

Beef Bourguignon is a beef stew where the meat has been braised in a local red Burgundy, originally a peasant dish the meat was cooked slowly to help tenderise the cheaper cuts - now it can be found on the menu at most of the top restaurants.

Coq au Vin is another dish to hail from this region. Recipes differ but it is braised chicken with lardons, mushrooms, garlic and, traditionally, a Burgundy wine.

Plenty of other fantastic dishes can be found in Burgundy. Escargots, Persillé ham, oeufs meurettes, gougeres (savoury choux pastry) and pain d'epices to name but a few.

There were 24 restaurants in Burgundy within the 2012 Michelin guide with three star restaurants being found in Chagny, Joigny and Saulieu. Two star restaurants can be found in Sens and Saint Pere. You don't need to seek out Michelin stars though - most towns and villages have an excellent choice with the menu du jour usually being around 10-12 euros.
