General

  • Canalside site with fishing available
  • A few minutes' drive from the ancient Roman town of Autun
  • Restaurant serving traditional Burgundy dishes and fine regional wines

Burgundy flavours of traditional dishes, modern recipes and – oui oui – most excellent wines are a mere minute or two’s stroll from your berth at Camping de la Porte d'Arroux (or quick stagger back to it if you’ve partaken rather too many samples of Burgundy wine).

These flavours are yours for the taking at Camping de la Porte d'Arroux’s Chaumiere restaurant, on this canalside site with fishing available within the grounds as well as a couple of kilometres away. It’s all a few minutes’ drive from the (fab) Roman commune of Autun, one of France’s designated Towns of Art and History, and east of the 173,000 hectares of lakes, farmland and woodland of the (also fab) Morvan Regional Natural Park. Golf, horse riding, sailing and boating are all available within a few kilometres.

When you’re not fishing, ambling along the canal banks or ticking off yet another sample on your Burgundy wine list, a good selection of activities is to hand on site in July and August, ranging from a kids’ club to sports tournaments and regular music nights and entertainment. Canoeing on the canal is available at a small fee.

Other facilities include free wifi at reception, a small grocery shop and a bread service available from mid-May. The site also has a laundry room and a heated toilet block.

Local attractions

The spectacular town of Autun, a former Roman imperial province founded as Augustodunum by one Augustus C, is within a few minutes’ drive of the site. It’s still best known these days for its Roman centre, including the two ancient gates of the Porte St-André and the Porte d'Arroux, the two remaining walls/ faces of the temple of Janus, viewable from Camping de la Porte d'Arroux, and the ruins of a spectacular theatre that was able to seat 17,000 people.

Autun was founded for a Gallic tribe, who had Bibracte as its central town. This one, half an hour’s drive away, is also well worth a roam around for its ancient remains: Bibracte is a vital spot in Europe for those interested in Celtic civilisation and has a museum and interactive exhibits dedicated to these times.

You can also access cycling and hiking trails within a kilometre; fishing, boating, sailing and pedalo rides within two; horse riding within three and a nine-hole golf course within four. About 45 minutes’ drive away in Morvan Regional Natural Park, Lac des Settons is the scenic spot for more watersports, a sandy beach and angling for pike and perch.
