Pontailler is located at the confluences of the Saone, of the channel of the Marne to the Saone, Albane, Bèze, Vingeanne and Ognon, to the foot of the Ardoux Mount, thus offering beautiful points of view and constituting a paradise for the fishermen.
Ognon is an ideal place for small transferred in the canoe. The tourists find themselves here, stage city between Burgundy and Franche County where we can still taste to the joys of the bathe in river.
Water is of good quality and the beach is supervised during summer. True delight for the lovers of nature, one appreciates calm places while adopting the Art of living of the Valley of the Saone...

  • To taste : pôchouse (fresh water fish bouillabaisse), spotted ham, mustard of Dijon.

The Saone furrows the slopes of the famous vineyards of the coast chalonnaise, Mâconnais and the Beaujolais wine, walking on idly through the strengthened cities. True paradise for the fishermen, his weak slope and its regular flow makes a calm and easy water way of it.
