Flavigny-sur-Ozerain, Burgundy

See the Burgundy Guide ›
Concierge.com's insider take:

According to legend, Flavinius, a Roman who arrived in Burgundy with Julius Caesar around 52 B.C., fell in love with the site of this enchanting village and decided to stay. Beyond the setting—cupped by the Ozerain River and two other streams, about 35 miles northwest of Dijon—Flavigny is famous for the aniseed candies produced at the Abbaye de Flavigny since 1591. The abbey, built by the Burgundians in the early eighth century, is also worth a visit for its ramparts, views, and crypt, where the bones of the martyr Ste. Reine, of nearby Alise-Ste.-Reine, once reposed. Many of the churches and houses in town date to the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, giving the village an enchanting, stage-set look you might recognize—the movie Chocolat was filmed here. You'll want to spend several hours touring the abbey, tasting aniseed candies, and walking around the village.—David Downie
