Activities from Les Deux Chevres
Yoga at Les Deux Chevres
Every morning (except Friday) at 08.00, our guests can join our resident Yoga expert Agata, for a short walk into the vineyards. See the sun rising over the Jura mountains, while Agata introduces you to yoga breathing exercises, and the sun salutation. Return to the shaded terrace for a refreshing fruit and vegetable tonic, followed by the Les Deux Chevres famous organic buffet breakfast
Cooking with Kevin
Last year some of our guests asked us to arrange cooking classes at Les Deux Chevres. They were very successful. This year, young bi-lingual French chef Kevin Roerhig joins the team, and the cooking classes will become a regular feature, drawing on his experience of exciting new culinary developments in European 3* kitchens, but also covering the basics of French cuisine, bread, pastry and pasta making. Please let us know if you would like to reserve a place.
Many of our guests find that two Burgundy meals a day, in addition to a hearty breakfast, is one meal too many. As an alternative, we offer a gourmet picnic basket, ordered the previous day, with advice on some of the spectacular spots to enjoy a light lunch in the countryside.
Les Deux Chevres is a short car (or slightly longer by bike), bus or train ride, from the centre of Dijon. Here on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, the market is in full flow, and this is where we purchase our food supplies. Around the market are other speciality shops, cheese from Porcheret, patisserie from Pierre Hubert, chocolate from Fabrice Gillotte, and a wide selection of cafes and restaurants. A few steps away is the Antique Quarter, the moutarderie Fallot, and the Jacquemart clock on 12c Notre Dame de Dijon. We can tell you the best place to park to take advantage of all that this beautiful city has to offer.
Cycling from Les Deux Chevres
We have complimentary bicycles available for our guests use, and this is a great way to see the vineyards and the wine villages. We can advise on short meanders, or longer more challenging rides to the other side of the Cote.
Within a short bicycle ride of Les Deux Chevres, guests have access to the equestrian facilities at the Mountain Farm, on the top of the Cote, behind our neighbouring village, Morey St Denis. The centre caters for all levels of proficiency, and for more advanced riders, there are mile after mile of bridle paths through the forest on the top of the Cote
Golf and Tennis
Tennis courts are available at the sports centre in Gevrey Chambertin, and a bit further afield, at Norges les Dijon, about 40 mins by car, our guests have access to the excellent course at the country club Norges Dijon
Wine Tours and Tastings
Every day at 18.00 we conduct a tutored wine tasting in our vaulted cellars. Reservations are not usually necessary. The wines tasted are available to purchase, and we ship to most parts of the world. It is also interesting to visit the cellars of the wine makers, and we can usually arrange this for one of our suppliers, or alternatively recommend a wine professional who will take you for half a day or a day, around a number of cellars in the Cote de Nuits and the Cotes de Beaune. We have worked successfully with Sherry Thevenot, Burgundy Discovery, Stephanie Mancusot, and Authentica Wine Tours.
