Châtillon-en-Bazois
This stage of the Nivernais Canal by Bike takes you through the Bazois area, where cattle are reared. Enjoy the countryside dotted with castles and churches as well as forests and pastures, the last filled with white herds. After further meanders, including the striking one at Panneçot, the canal races in a straight line to join the Loire.
