Holiday rentals Saône-et-Loire
With your family, you can be environmentally friendly when you visit the Solutré Pouilly Vergisson site as you hike to the top of the Vergisson or the Roche de Solutré, at an altitude of 492 metres. Cyclists will enjoy riding the green way, an old railway line that starts at Marcigny and that leads them to many of the region's monuments. The Saône-et-Loire has a vast historic and artistic heritage, with religious buildings such as the basilica of Paray-le-Monial, the abbey of Tournus and, above all, the abbey of Cluny, which was once one of the most important abbeys in Europe.
Discover Bibracte, where legend claims that Julius Caesar wrote his Bellum Gallicum. You can also visit Autun, with its cathedral and the remains of its Gallo-Roman ramparts, as well as Brancion, a mediaeval village that organises costumed reconstitutions each year. It is impossible to visit the Saône-et-Loire without paying homage to local gastronomy.
Wine enthusiasts will make a stop at the Charnay-lès-Mâcon wine fair. Every year, Charolles celebrates beef. The "Les Glorieuses de Bresse, which takes place in Louhans, Montrevel-en-Bresse, Bourg-en-Bresse and Pont-de-Vaux, centres around Bresse poultry, which is the pest poultry in France and is traditionally consumed during the end-of-year festivities.
