This is a great place to base a yacht or barge in France as we are at the centre of a spiders web of canals, and you have a choice of 6 directions in which to cruise.
There are plenty of alternatives depending on the length of vacation available and here are 3 examples :
1/ For a weekend you can go to Auxonne, Seurre, Chalon, Dole, Dijon or just drop anchor or tie to a tree on the river Saône and fish or swim.
2/ For a week you can take the Marne canal to Langres, the Burgundy canal to the top pound, up the Doubs to Besançon, down the Saône to Macon or Lyon, the Canal du Centre (best in the autumn as the vineyards are absolutely gorgeous when the leaves turn gold), or up the Saône through the villages along the river to Gray and beyond.
3/ For those lucky enough to get a month's break or more, you can take a loop North via Nancy or Strasbourg or Paris, or even go down to the Med for a week at sea if you have a suitable vessel.
We are based in the Burgundy region about 300 kilometers south east of Paris, 100 kilometers from Geneva, 25 kilometers from Dijon, 30 kilometers from Beaune.
There are very good highway connections in every direction. If you are visiting by car we can send you a map with the highway exits marked. We are about 10 kilometers from the highway and Saint Jean de Losne is well signposted.
We also have excellent train connections from Paris via the high speed train (TGV). à Dijon.
