Navigation on the Saône

The Saone slips between the hills of the famous vineyards of the Chalonnaise coast, Mâcon and Beaujolais, then passes lawily through the fortified cities. A true paradise for fishermen, the low slope and regular flow make this a calm and gentle waterway.

Channel from the Marne to the Saône

This beautiful canal allows one to relax and enjoy the absolute calm that comes with a boating holiday. Open your eyes and look around you, you will see a multitude of birds such as a heron, or a blue tit. At its Southern end, the canal is lined with magnificent castles.
