Culture

Situated in the heart of Burgundy, Abbaye de la Bussière is just half an hour’s drive from the historic towns of Beaune and Dijon.

Beaune is home to the famous medieval Hôtel-Dieu, a former hospital and part of the Hospices de Beaune, beautifully preserved and giving a wonderful insight into life in the Middle Ages. 

Every year in November during the weekend of ‘Les Trois Glorieuses’, the Hospices auctions its wines, a world-renowned event attracting thousands of international visitors.

Visit the beautiful, old town of Dijon, former base of the Valois dukes of Burgundy and discover Dijon's 'Petit Louvre', a wonderful Fine Arts Museum, based in the formal ducal palace, the Notre Dame with its famous 'good-luck' owl or the Saint Benigne cathedral with its 11th century crypt.

Three times a week, Dijon has it’s own bustling market in and around the old town and is well worth a visit.  The ornate food hall is surrounded by bistrots offering a variety of traditional regional fare.

Discover the famed Clos de Vougeot, with its unique 12th century, 30 ton wine presses, built by the Cistercian monks to make wine for the sacrament.  Today it is home to the renowned Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin.

The Abbey is also on the doorstep of famous abbeys, such as Fontenay or Cîteaux, famous for its delicious cheese.  From the Abbey you might also wish to visit the old town of Semur or Alesia, site of the battle between Caesar and Verginterorix.
