Vermenton - in the winelands of Burgundy

Vermenton is a small but lively town that is located in the heart of Burgundy's famous winelands, in the Yonne department. Its name means "country of the beautiful hills", and it doesn't take a visitor to the town long to discover why this name was given. The countryside is peaceful and indeed, very beautiful, and provides a perfect backdrop to this pretty little town.

Canal port

Vermenton owes much of its appeal to its situation beside the lovely Canal Nivernais. There is a canal port in Vermenton, and this can be a lively and colourful spot in summer time when the tourist boats moor up and holiday makers come ashore to do their shopping and to dine in the excellent little restaurants that can be found in the town.

To see in town

The town has plenty of buildings of historical interest to show you, with the old church, the abbey, the bridge and the leper house being especially noteworthy. Out and about you will find the vineyards and the great wine producing estates for which Burgundy is so well known, and these are certainly worth visiting. Usually they will provide guided tours and tastings, though you may have to book in advance.

Shops and services

Vermenton provides most of the usual shops, small supermarkets and services that you will need for everyday life, and it is not difficult to access larger facilities in the main towns nearby such as Auxerre. The lifestyle here is very good, with a superb gastronomy, some of the best wines in France produced on the doorstep and a clean, natural environment.

Ballooning and other activities

Vermenton has another claim to fame besides its river port and wines. It is the town where Montgolfières, the biggest and most prestigious hot air ballooning company in France has its base... so if you fancy indulging in something a little out of the ordinary, this could be the very place to try! Of course, Vermenton also offers more down to earth sporting and leisure activities, with tennis, swimming, golf, horse-riding, wine tasting and gourmet cookery courses all available in the vicinity.
