My article on a weekend in Chalon-sur-Saône, published in France Magazine
Chalon-sur-Saône: Cradle of photography & gateway to the Côte Chalonnaise
Nestled in the heart of southern Burgundy, Chalon-sur-Saône offers the perfect weekend escape with its rich cultural heritage, architectural beauty and cosy restaurants that serve the region’s wine-infused cuisine. It is the largest town in Saône-et-Loire, a rural department where peaceful hillside villages and lush woodlands invite you to pause and savour life. From Chalon, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to soak up this surrounding natural splendour, whether cycling through the Voie Verte or enjoying a leisurely cruise on the River Saône. And if you happen to like wine, it’s good to know that you’re practically at the doorstep of the Côte Chalonnaise, a lesser-known subregion of Burgundy certainly worth discovering.
