Camping la Héronnière is a quiet relaxing site on the edge of a leisure lake in pleasant rolling woodland countryside. Two further lakes are reserved for fishing. The 80 touring pitches are good sized, grassy and level. About half have shade, with 10A electricity connections and there are plenty of water points. The site is within 4 km of the village of Laive and within reach of Chalon-sur-Saône, Tournus and the Chalonnais vineyards and wine route. A pleasant walk can be accessed directly from the site and runs along the edge of the lake, plus there are numerous footpaths through the woods.
The Voie Verte, a 117 km. long linear cycling route, is 15 km. to the west. A pleasant walk, reached directly from the campsite, runs along the edge of the lake. Cluny and the former industrial towns of Le Creusot and Montceau-les-Mines are each about 40 km. away.
