Digoin, in the middle of the Charolais country, is the ideal place to relax and enjoy the local produce. Over the centuries Digoin has become a centre for pottery as well as remaining a city of water.
Situated on the junction of three channels, it is heaven for those who love fishing or nature. Throughout the various canals you can discover wild spaces, ancient Romanesque art and many craftsmen who are willing to demonstrate their craft for you (basket makers, cabinetmakers, potters or glass blowers).
Take the time to stroll along the canal bridge which was built from stone. It is a magnificent piece of architecture which connects the central canal to the side canal from the Loire.

Most Important: Snail Festival (1st week end of August). Take a walk along the broad green lane which borders the central canal for 12km between Digion and Paray Le Monial. It roams through a landscape of copses and meadows.

Navigation on the central canal

Initially baptized Charolais canal, the central canal is used as a link between the Loire and the Saone and is 125 km long. It was used for a long time to supply the heavy industries of the area. Equipped with some automated locks, it is a channel pleasant to sail, narrow and winding.

Navigation on the Roanne à Digoin canal

This channel offers a very shaded and very calm way to spend your holiday, encouraging many wild moorings. Close by there is the Brionnais route of Roman churches to explore. Punctuated by only 10 locks, this canal will take you from Roanne to Digion while passing through the Brionnais pastures where the famous, white, Charolais cattle graze.

Navigation on the canal alongside the Loire

With its three canal bridges, the canal alongside the Loire is a peaceful waterway which is punctuated by rare locks. From Digoin to Briare you can meander through the Bourbonnais countryside until you reach Sancerre and Pouilly, home of the famous wines.
