St Léger sur Dheune (Centre)

The base at St-Léger is ideally located and the gourmets among you will not be disappointed! While drifting down the Canal du Centre, you bask among the most prestigious vineyards of Burgundy (The Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise). Along the Dheune valley, Mercurey, Santenay, where the 13th century church of St-Jean-de-Narosse dominates the vineyards, Montrachet, with its celebrated white wines and Rully, with its 12th century castle, produce famous vintages. Further south, the Saône and the Seille promise yet more discoveries and the opportunity for bathing in their warm waters. If you wish, you can head south towards Tournus and Mâcon, whose architectural heritage evokes the feeling ofthe South. Returning back up the Saône, you  navigate through a landscape of pastures where one of the most beautiful stopping points is Verdun-sur-le-Doubs, situated on an island at the meeting of the Doubs and the Saône. You can follow the course of the Doubs River for around 10 km up to Pontoux, and don’t miss St-Symphorien and Seurre with its Eco-museum installed in a lovely house.
