About the neighbourhood
The picturesque village of Sanxay is situated within a loop of the river Vonne with houses dating from the 15th century. There are good local amenities including village shops, a bakery and bar. There is a tourist information office, campsite, children's’ play area and a 50 metre open air swimming pool with accompanying children's’ pool. The village is a good centre for fishing and cycling. The moated Château de Marconnay is a venue for a memorable meal and the interesting Gallo-Roman site, which is open year-round, also stages an internationally acclaimed opera in the amphitheatre each August. In the last week of October the famous International Bird Fair is held at Mènigoute.
