In Partnership with The French Hot Air Balloon Company
More than 25 years ago, The French Hot Air Balloon Company was created here in Burgundy. It is one of the few balloon companies in France which is fully licensed to carry passengers by the Civil Aviation Authority (DGAC). Flying approximately 8 500 passengers per year, their experience, passion and professionalism helps ranking the company to one of the best balloon companies in France.
A stunning view of the Burgundy area
Château de Pommard is located a few kilometers from Beaune, in the heart of Burgundy. Protected from the winds by a wall erected in the nineteenth century, its 20 hectares now constitute the largest private monopoly of Côte d’Or. Since 2015, Clos Marey-Monge has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site alongside the Climats of the Burgundy vineyards. Can you imagine a better classroom?
