The Mâconnais, lying in the eastern centre of France in the very South of Burgundy, is the perfect distance from the Northern Alps ski resorts for a gastronomic break in your journey. Whether you are skiing in the Portes du soleil, the Grand Massif , les Aravis or the Chamonix valley, you are only 2 hours away by car on autoroute 40 (direction Geneva).
The A43, 40 minutes South of Mâcon, takes you to Chambery and on to the Tarentaise Valley with the 3 valleys, espace Killy and Paradisky.
Whether you are looking for an exciting break to get away from it all or a leisurely opportunity to sample some of our best wines, wine tourism in the Mâcon area of southern Burgundy (France) offers you so much to see and do.
You can choose between a cool, relaxing cruise down the river Saône, a chance to explore the region’s vineyards (Saint-Véran, Pouilly Fuissé, Viré Clessé or the Mâcon Villages), sports and leisure activities to suit everyone, all the fun of discovering the many and varied heritage sites in our wine producing villages, the Roche de Solutré, listed as a “Grand Site de France” tourist site, not forgetting the delicious meals waiting to be enjoyed in our gourmet restaurants.
Your family certainly won’t go away disappointed. You can trust the Mâcon Tourist Office to prepare your holiday or your stay in the region on the way to the Alps or the Mediterranean.
