Gateway to Southern Burgundy
Frequent direct speed trains carry visitors from Paris or Lyon to Le Creusot TGV train station in less than two hours, with all other French cities also easily reached by train. In Burgundy, the Urban Community of Le Creusot Montceau is a perfect place to be based so that you can spend more time exploring the immediate areas of southern Burgundy. By staying at Le Creusot or Montceau-les-Mines, you can easily enjoy day trips to different parts of the region.
Autun and Morvan, Chalon-sur-Saone, Cluny or the Charolais-Brionnais are only a few kilometres away, reachable within an hour drive. Clamber to the top of the peaks or hike around the spectacular lakes of the Morvan National Park. Head to the vineyards of the Couchois and the Côte Chalonnaise areas for some serious wine tasting. Embark on a journey of wonder in the Romanesque churches of the Brionnais area and sample some of the famous Charolais meat in a farm inn.
Enjoy a weekend or a short stay in a bed and breakfast or one of the local hotels of Creusot-Montceau to take time to discover the department of Saone-et-Loire and get off the beaten track. The variety of landscapes and outdoor activities will make you want to come back again and again!
