Saône-et-Loire

One of four departments that make up the Burgundy region, Saône-et-Loire is named after the two rivers that run through it. The east of the region, closer to Jura and the Alps, is hillier while the main wine-producing vineyards are in the north. Despite being the most populated department in Burgundy, especially in the east closer to Lyon, it offers plenty of unspoiled countryside, including part of the Morvan regional park in the north-west.

CAPITAL: MÂCON - In the south of the department near the Rhone-Alpes border, Mâcon is set in the heart of the Maconnais wine-producing area on the Rover Saône and has a 150-berth marina, pretty flower-bedecked streets, historic religious buildings and the unique Maison de Bois, whose wooden facade is covered in ribald statues of men, monkeys and masked figures.

Cluny abbey is one of the most visited religious buildings in France, while châteaux include Pierre-de-Bresse, Drée and Courmatin.
