Alan Rogers Review

This is a peaceful, verdant site located in the Northern Jura with a riverside setting on the Saône. L’Arquebuse has 100 level, unmarked pitches on grass, of which 17 are occupied by mobile homes and chalets. Most have 10A electricity and a variety of trees give shade to some pitches. Auxonne is close to both the A36 and A39 motorways and this site may prove a useful overnight stop. The site has a bar/restaurant, Le Pinocchio (open to the public), and the adjacent Base Nautique offers a good range of leisure activities, including canoeing, windsurfing, mountain biking as well as a large swimming pool.

Auxonne is an historic town, fortified by Vauban, and is renowned as the capital of the Saône valley. The town’s most famous former occupant is Napoleon and he spent two years at the Auxonne military academy. Not surprisingly there are several monuments celebrating his time here!
