The 18th-century Rigna Castle has been converted into a hotel and restaurant.

The Saône is one of the most beautiful rivers in France with not too many locks flowing through an idyllic and fertile landscape. Here you will see impressive farmhouses with traditional roofs and masonry and balconies decorated with flowers.

If you sail northwards through the Vosges Canal, a waterway leads you through the Vosges forests with a special natural spectacle: past birches, beeches and hornbeams, you arrive in the remarkable towns of Fontenoy-le-Château and Epinal.

From Dôle to Besançon, the Canal du Rhone au Rhin flows between sloping cliffs and wooded slopes.
