TOWN, VILLAGE, NEIGHBOURHOOD
Between vineyards and the Canal du Centre, Chagny surprises with one of the finest markets in the region and one of the best restaurants in the world. Its diverse and sometimes unusual heritage has managed to leave space for nature activities, including hiking and cycling along the towpaths.
This small town of 6000 inhabitants offers plenty of attractions to visit, such as its 13th-century church listed as a historic monument, the Copiaus Theatre and an apothecary from the 18th century with its period wooden panelling. Come and discover the house of Doctor Loydreau and its medicinal herb garden, or contemplate contemporary works such as the amazing Octagon for Saint Eloi, a work by the American artist Richard Serra.
Fly in a balloon and go where the winds take you between vineyards and clouds, enjoy the Canal du Centre and go for a picnic to the sound of the lapping water, make your way along the greenway by bike, on foot, on rollerblades or fish at Etang en Blouche. Here are some great ideas to relax, escape and recharge your batteries.
This small town is also a market of fragrant and colourful stalls on Sunday mornings, and then there’s the 3 Michelin starred "Lameloise" restaurant, which has shone for almost a hundred years, making Chagny such an unmissable place to stop off and enjoy some gourmet cooking.
