The Yonne - naturally


Crossed by the A6 autoroute, and situated in the north of Burgundy, between Paris and Lyon, the department of Yonne benefits from a privileged position on the holiday route. Please, do not hesitate to leave the infernal ribbon of tarmac to appreciate the beauty and diversity of the countryside, the quiet resting in the hand of nature, the richness of the architectural heritage; to taste its wines and local produce; to share in the knowledge of the artists and craftsmen intrinsic in all the land.

The rivers prized by fishermen, the canals which captivate the amateur sailors, the chateaux, the listed churches, historic monuments, museums and wash houses, the forests and paths to follow on foot, horse or cycle, are among the highlights for the department of Vauban, Colette and Pierre Larousse.

A department resolutely turned towards tourism. The fans of camping will not be disappointed. Numerous camp sites have added in their presentation a desire to ensure that everyone who comes to pitch their tent, their caravan or motorhome, or chooses to stay in a static caravan will receive a warm welcome.

The Yonne, land of nature and culture, wishes you a warm welcome.
