There can be no better place to stay while cycling the Burgundy Canal than right on the canal. Shopicerie is as close as you can get without getting wet! You can find the Shopicerie right near the towpath at Veuvey-sur-Ouche between locks 22S/23S. Shopicerie was recommended to us by a cyclist who stayed there. "It's a great cafe, shop, bar, B&B and campsite all in one. Really friendly, English spoken. Highly recommended," he writes. There are just two B&B rooms with space for 7 people in total. The rooms have canal views and private bathrooms. Rare in French B&Bs, they also have kettles in the rooms for teas and coffees. There is space in the garden for 6 tents. The attached shop sells stacks of goodies for your panniers: groceries, coffee, beer, wine, and sandwiches, as well as ice-creams to cool off when you arrive. There are showers, toilets and washing machine/tumble dryer for campers, as well as a book swap with English and French books. (There is no other general store on the towpath for around 20km). The Shopicerie is run by the lovely Bryony, who told me: "I started this multi-service shop in 2017 having lived in the area for 30 years and felt something was needed for all those thirsty and hungry tourists pedalling by. Our guests now come in all languages, and the English-speaking ones are always relieved to find someone who can chat and help in English." Credit cards accepted. The Shopicerie also has bike hire. Dijon is 29km away via the towpath. See here for camping and here for B&B (or email/phone Bryony direct).
