St Jean de Losne is defined by the river Saône waterfront. For all time – and for all purposes – this ( Burgundian ) river has been a motivating force for both the town and its economic activity. Today the commercial cargo barge traffic has been replaced by fluvial, pleasure boats tourism. The local businesses – for some of them globally known – adapted their activities in this direction and offer now a wide range of pleasure boat services. The grouping of several municipalities – named « Rives de Saône » -in charge of developing the local economy
and tourism helps this evolution by different means such as workshops with students, ehancement of the local fluvial heritage and promotion of the waterways and its infrastructure in partnership with the Burgundy/Franche Comté region. This « Salon Fluvial » is a showcase for the local businesses to demonstrate their « savoir faire » . A rendez-vous for boat enthusiasts from far and wide. Welcome to the Saône river, enjoy !
