Welcome to Bourgogne (Burgundy in English). Bourgogne is a region in East-Central France whose capital is Dijon; it's comprised of four departments: Yonne, Nièvre, Côte-d'Or, and Saône & Loire. I'm in Saône & Loire within a wine region called Côte Chalonnaise, which borders the Côte-d'Or.

La Ruche is in a pretty, remote (and pretty remote) country location. You will need a car for your stay; cars can be rented at the local train station from Avis or Europcar on site (otherwise Hertz and Enterprise are nearby). My place is 15 minutes from the train station.
