Map showing the village Pont de Pany


Canal locks: 38, 39 Saône side

Next upstream Saône side village: Sainte-Marie-sur-Ouche

Next downstream Saône side village: Fleurey-sur-Ouche

The old postcard shown above proves that things do remain the same. The lock 38s marks the entrance to the Valley Ouche, the canal makes a sharp right turn towards Dijon.

There is a small road that passes in front of the lock house which takes you over the hills and towards Nuit Saint Georges up.

The village was once a very important "Bread" market, hence the name "Pain". The bridge crossing the river Ouche was also an important frontier during feudal times. You'll find a baker, post office, bar and restaurant. On the village square, there is often a small market

Hidden in the hills you'll find Chateau la Chassagne and a golf course.

The mooring on the righthand side above Lock 38 is much better than below the lock.

In the village, you will find a pharmacy and post office.


Just above lock 38 on the towpath side, there is a comfortable place to moor.
Below the lock, there is a good turning area for 30-metre barges.
