Pontailler-sur-Saône, a town in Burgundy that’s well worth getting to know

As its name indi­cates, the town of, Pon­tailler-sur-Saône devel­oped over the cen­turies along the Saône, one of the best rivers in France for water­way tourism. Its first inhab­i­tants, the Gauls, set­tled sev­er­al cen­turies ago at the top of Mount Ardoux. Over the cen­turies, the town’s strate­gic loca­tion on the banks of the famous riv­er secured its rep­u­ta­tion among barge­men as a well-known port of call.

A departure town for a host of waterway cruises

Plea­sure boats have now replaced barges in Pon­tailler-sur-Saône. This is the home of our water­way base, where you’ll be able to pick up your licence-free rental boat. Take the oppor­tu­ni­ty to climb Mount Ardoux before board­ing. You can admire the stat­ue of Vir­gin Mary and, above all, enjoy breath-tak­ing views. The Saône plain promis­es you an unfor­get­table cruise, while Monts du Jura invites you to get away from it all on a walk or cycle ride. It’ll then be time to go through the admin­is­tra­tive for­mal­i­ties as you pre­pare for your next departure.
