The Saône is a lovely river the banks of which abound with exceptional flora and fauna.  As a result, it is a favourite amongst fans of river cruising.  Making a stop-over in Chalon sur Saône for a cultural and gourmet getaway is the little extra that makes all the difference...

The range of cruises available is as different as the “terroirs” that stretch along the Côte Chalonnaise: private cruises, lunch and dinner cruises, excursions and picnic cruises.


Chalon, town of Art and History is a welcome stop-over to indulge the pleasures of the taste-buds and those of cultural discovery!  As you arrive the view of the quayside is impressive, along with that of the Ile St Laurent with its mediaeval houses and 16th century hospital.

Note that the Tourist Office is just opposite the docking point and that the town centre is only 200 metres away... A few days of recharging your batteries are in view.
