Rogny les Sept Ecluses

Burgundy Loire (NIC)

Leaving from Rogny les 7 Ecluses along the Loing canal, you can explore the Loing valley, land of woods and forests punctuated by charming villages. Along the way, make a halt at Montargis , the capital of the Gâtinais region, and don't forget Nemours with its curiously formed Gréau rocks and Moret sur Loing , a small fortified town with ramparts within which you will find the house of Clémenceau , known as "Grange batelière ", or the "Ferryman's Barn". Then you can take a little trip down the Yonne towards Nivernais and Burgundy : Sens , Joigny , Auxerre , Clamecy ...

Taking the Briare canal, you can explore Puisaye . At Rogny , wonder at the seven locks built under the reign of Henry IV. Take the time to stop and visit the awe-inspiring sight of the Canal-Bridge built by the great engineer Eiffel. After that, the canal running parallel to the Loire opens out before you the beauty of the Sancerrois region and its charming little towns ; Sancerre , with its narrow streets, is situated on a promontory overlooking the Loire valley (you absolutely must stop here to sample the excellent local wines and goat's cheeses !) ; St Satur with its beach on the banks of the Loire ; and the local gastronomic specialities of this region are not to be missed.

Carry on towards Charité sur Loire and visit the basilica, a remnant of Burgundy's Romanesque architecture.
A wonderful way to discover the varied and picturesque canals of the "Val de Loire
