Gueugnon - a charming market town

Gueugnon is a charming large market town that is situated in the east of central France, in the Saône et Loire department of the Burgundy region. Set in lovely lush countryside, Gueugnon has a thriving economy and a rich heritage, and is conveniently located in the centre of the triangle that links the important cities of Lyon, Clermont Ferrand and Dijon.

All amenities

Gueugnon has all the amenities you would associate with a large town, and thus you will find easy access to all shops, supermarkets and services as well as the traditional street market that takes place every Thursday morning. For those who enjoy dining out, Gueugnon offers a fine selection of restaurants, offering all manner of different cuisines. Burgundy is of course renowned for its superb gastronomy as well as its fine wines, so dining out (or even in) here is a treat in store. Beef, of course, is the speciality of the area.

What to see in Gueugnon

Gueugnon has a long history and there are plenty of interesting sites to visit and enjoy. The town has a beautiful bridge of interesting construction over the River Arroux, and this was of great importance when it was built as previously the river at this point could only be crossed by a ford, which was not always accessible. Of the town's chateaux there are two remaining today, one of which is currently lived in by an old noble family. Gueugnon also offers archaeological sites, museums, parks and gardens and a heritage trail. Cultural events are held at various points in the calendar, and are always worth attending.

Out and about

Burgundy, and specifically, the Saône et Loire, is a great place to discover some of France's best kept secrets. Not so well known to tourists, the area offers a chance to enjoy a part of France that is known best to the French, who understand the value of a culturally rich and naturally beautiful area, even though it may not be close to the sea, or have access to ski resorts or the other most obvious attractions.

The finer things in life and modern pleasures too

This region appeals to those who love the fine things in life, the great wines and gourmet dishes that Burgundy does so well, the history and culture of France's great noble families, and a superb natural environment. Of course, there are many more modern pleasures to be found here too, and you will have no difficulty accessing good golf courses, swimming facilities, tennis courts, horse-riding and wonderful walking trails.
