About Tannay

You’re in the heart of the undulating hills and valleys of the Nivernais region. There are plenty of locks to go through, whether you head north or south, and you are rewarded with amazing views and spectacular countryside. Clamecy, is stunningly pretty and just 4hrs north the large lake at Baye, (11.5hrs south) is bursting with wildlife and great for a refreshing dip in the waters. We’d also recommend a  visit (23mins from Tannay) to hill-top Vézelay, home to the UNESCO World Heritage Basilica of Sainte-Marie-Madeleine.

From Tannay it is:

  • 24hrs (49 locks) to our base in Migennes
  • 27hrs (70 locks) to our base in Decize
