Further south at the gateway of the Morvan region, plunge into the heart of nature and prepare to live unique experiences: rafting, canoeing, adventure park, trail biking and trekking on Segways at the village of Saint Père sous Vézelay.

Extend your stay at the lake Bourdon in the heart of the Burgundy Backroads, the Leisure Base in Saint Fargeau proposes canoe, paddle and biking…. A moment to share in complete calm! If you prefer having feet on firm ground choose a trek on horseback around the lake with the Ferme Equestre « Les Grilles ».

On the Loire side, Charmes Nautiques offers a day or more of boating, departing from Briare. Couples, families, or groups of friends, glide down the canal Lateral to the Loire, cruising and discovering the region otherwise.
