Our family is considering a 1 week stay in Chalon s Saone. We would like rural views, local food markets, a choice of places to eat and a location that is quiet and relaxing. We have young children so we would spend the most time in CsS itself and do not plan to do many day trips.
How does CsS compare to places like Bordeuax, Beaune, Saumur or Scarlat le Caneda? Is it a commerce-city like Bordeux or a tourist city like Orleans?
Would love to hear about your experiences in the city and any other locations in Burgundy/Loire that you recommend. Thank you!
