Want to book a tent or caravan pitch or a mobile home rental in a campsite in Mâcon? The Kanopée Village in Treviso in the Ain welcomes you to a beautiful wooded area on the banks of the Saône, just a 40-minute drive from Mâcon.
Located north of Lyon and well served by the A6 motorway, the town of Mâcon was built on the banks of the Saône,between the Beaujolais and Bresse. The prefecture of Saône-et-Loire, one of the largest cities in Burgundy-Franche-Comté, is surrounded by vineyards and green mountains that recall its proximity to the Jura and the central Massif. The city has the advantage of being on a human scale (33,500 inhabitants), bringing together the advantages of the city without the disadvantages of the big metropolises.
Mâcon is distinguished by the St. Lawrence Bridge that spans the Saône, St. Vincent’s Cathedral, the former Ursuline convent transformed into a museum and the convent of the Cordeliers. The city centre contains dozens of beautiful buildings, 24 of which are listed as historical monuments, including the Senecé Hotel. If you like local heritage, take the time to take a detour to St. Clement’s Church, which began construction in the 6th century.
Located in the middle of nature, the city attaches particular importance to parks and gardens, which cover an area of 6,000 square meters. The Rigolettes valley and the St. Nicholas meadow are particularly popular with walkers and sportsmen.
