The parc has excellent facilities and is ideal as a stopover en-route south or ideally spend some time to explore this lovely area. Auxonne is located 40 km south-west of Dijon, on the border of Burgundy and Franche-Comté and is a former border town between France and the German Empire.

The campsite is only 500 metres from the centre of Auxonne.

We stayed in an Amazon style tent, but they have a variety of mobile home accommodations and also emplacements if you are bringing your own caravan or mobile home.

Things to do in the Area


Dijon (20 minutes)

The city of Dijon is home to museums, restaurants etc. and the countryside around is famous for Burgundy wine, with numerous wine chateaux to visit.


Hospice de Beaune

Worth visiting to see its wonderful coloured tiled roof. Beaune is in the heart of the Burgundy wine region.


In Southern Burgundy you can visit the ecumenical community of Taizé which is famous among other things for its wonderful music - modern church music with haunting sounds.

The region is good for walking and cycling. The vineyards of the Mâconnais and particularly the Roche de Solutré are very suitable for nature walks and the Voie Verte (former rail road transformed into cycling path) offers more than 60 km secure and very pleasant cycling, running from Chalon sur Saône to Mâcon.
