Pontailler sur Saône

Pontailler sur Saône, le pays vert et bleu

The green and blue country



Pontailler is found on the junction of the river Saône, the Canal de la Marne à la Saône and the river Albane. The rivers Bèze, Vingeanne and Ognon also converge and join at this town located at the foot of Mount Ardoux. This makes the town a true haven for those who enjoy fishing and for those who are searching a great view!
The Ognon is a great place to go on a canoeing trip through the countryside. Here the tourists gather to enjoy the clearness and beauty of the water by indulging in some bathing or water sports.
