A preserved nature Sail the peaceful waterways of the Nivernais and observe the beauty of a preserved nature. Key Towns And Villages On Your Cruise Migennes Migennes is ideally situated at the head of the Canal de Bourgogne, the Rivers Yonne and Armançon. Here, you will walk with pleasure into the green public spaces, or along the flower-lined streets. Take time to see the pretty church, Christ-Roi. Bassou This tiny village is situated on the banks of the River Yonne. Explore the beautiful church Sainte-Croix, which dates from the 16th century and visit an ancient and pretty washing basin that used to serve the village decades ago. Appoigny 2km inland, you could easily miss this village from the canal. It's worth a stop though; rich in history and well known for its restaurants, hotels and architecture. Gurgy This mooring is great for perhaps your first overnight stop - pleasant and secure, with a well tended path you can easily cycle along to stretch your legs. Take time to see the church St André, fortified in the 13th century, and ancient postal stage, the barrage and the fish ladder. The chateau here was destroyed by fire in 1979. Auxerre Auxerre is the largest city of the area, steeped in history and bustling with markets, shops and French pâtisseries.
