The hospital quay and the Doyenné Tower, Chalon-sur-Saône, France
The Loire and the many rivers which run through Saône-et-Loire attract many fishing enthusiasts and holiday makers. The Morvan Nature Park and the 120 kilometer Green Way attract nature lovers, hikers and cyclists. So, in principle, the department is strong on eco tourism. But not only, as Autun, Paray-le-Monial or Cluny Abbey are required visits for their historical interest. And all of this is within easy reach of Lyon. Property in Saône-et-Loire remains affordable and one can find good plots of land not on estates, or houses to renovate in the peaceful countryside. Town life: an old mill near Tournus, a charming property with guest rooms in Cluny, or an apartment in the center of Macon?
