We are a family with two children ages 13 and 17 traveling to France over the Christmas holiday. We will be in Colmar for 6 nights, then Beaune for 4 nights, and then Paris for 6 nights. We are staying in apartments and will have a car in Beaune. Our family has visited France several times (starting when the kids were ages 5 and 9), but we have never been to the Burgundy region.
We have read about Beaune in the RS France book, but we really don't have a sense of what Burgundy is like during late December. Our kids love to ice skate (will do this in Colmar & Paris, but not available in Beaune), so are there other activities for them in and around Beaune? They also enjoy bike riding.
We would love any advice about activities in this region, as well as restaurant recommendations in Beaune for my husband and me (we are very much looking forward to the Burgundian cuisine & wine!).
